We stayed in four locally owned hotels during our 15 days in Peru recently, and while we were very happy with all of them, the Tierra Viva hotel in Cusco was the most comfortable of them all - the beds had plenty of covers and pillows, and you didn't have to ask for extra blankets or for a heater. The hotel keeps these items in the room. We were very happy with our room's high ceiling and stylish decor. The staff was friendly, and the hotel was very helpful in setting up transport from the train and to the airport. The location was excellent. Unfortunately, a thundering discotheque is right next door, and the noise is horrendous. After the disco noise died down each night, a loud, belligerent drunk shouted in the street every night of our three-night stay - we saw him in a doorway on the street several times, and he seems to be a fixture. Moving from a room that is exposed to this noise may cause you to be placed in an inner room that has windows that look into the small interior courtyard, so you will probably have to keep your blinds closed and the windows closed for any privacy. The breakfast is very nice (starts at 5 am since many trekkers must leave early). I'd love to give this property a 5, but the surrounding environment makes this a poor choice for a restful stay. I would suggest hotels farther away from the plaza.
