When we checked in around 7pm we were greeted by a staff member who was the most helpful person we've ever met at a hotel. She was very friendly and truly wanted to help us find the information we needed. We were also served hot coca tea with sugar that was complimentary (as much as we wanted). When we returned that night they offered us tea again if we wanted it.
The receptionist called taxi's for us to find out prices on touring the city by taxi the next day as we only had until our noon flight to see as much as we could. She found us a reliable driver who showed up on time the next day for only 50 soles including dropping us off at the airport in Cusco after visiting every site you'd possibly want to visit in Cusco. We could get out and take pictures as we wanted.
She also recommended restaurants for us and since she was heading back home, she actually walked us to the restaurant! Talk about personal service. Great location - only minutes from the main plaza and many good restaurants and shopping.
The next morning, because they are remodeling their center courtyard area, they served us breakfast in our room at whatever time we wanted it including unlimited bread, jam, butter, coffee (with milk if desired), and orange juice.
Very, very old hotel. So old that you use a padlock to lock your door as there are no knobs/handles. Very secure feeling though and the main front door is locked so only hotel guests can enter the hotel.
Free internet to use in the lobby but the Internet was pretty slow so I wouldn't recommend using it if you have much business to take care of. Was nice to have though to send out a few emails and check our flights.
