I enjoyed the efficient layout of this hotel. It is one of the few hotels in Cusco that defeats the deafening sound of horn-beeping taxis by having most of its rooms underground and yet still allows in natural sunlight through an interior courtyard design. The only downside to the courtyard design is that you do hear other guests. I did best on the very bottom floor as far away from noise as possible but if you are light sleeper and need to sleep in don't stay in the rear courtyard as you'll hear morning breakfast preparations starting at 4:30 a.m. with blenders making juice. The staff accommodated me nicely with room changes to find the one that would best suit me. The location cannot be beat, being just off the plaza de armas, and the staff are helpful with directions although not knowledgeable about where to get a good massage. Booking through Expedia got me the best rate, $70/night vs. the hotel web site of $110. Rooms are small at the lower end but for $70 and the other stuff that comes with it, it is a good value. No organic eggs will be found in Cusco hotels or restaurants but the cook was kind enough to provide me a nice helping of avocado in the morning.
