Since I was traveling as a family of four with two young kids (13 and 11) I chose this hotel primarily for the authentic "cusco/Inka" stone house feel as well as a convenient location near the main plaza. However, this b & b turned out to be so much more.
Prior to arrival, the owner and staff were very helpful in setting up free pickup at the airport, purchasing Machu Picchu tickets in advance and arranging tours to the Sacred Valley and taxis during our stay.
Upon early arrival (7:00 am) we were greeted with cocoa tea and allowed to use one of the empty rooms while our deluxe double room was being prepared. Being able to take a shower and resting up after a long trip was totally unexpected and greatly appreciated.
By 11 am our room was ready and we were able to check in early. The room was very charming and had been renovated with all the latest modern amenities (i.e. free wi-fi, flat screen tv, mini fridge, in room safe, full bath with jacuzzi as shown on their web site).
Every morning a cook to order breakfast with fresh eggs, fruit, bread, juice, lattes, coffee and/or tea was prepared and sent to our room at any time we desired. The day we went to Machu Picchu a lunch bag with ham and cheese sandwich, rice cracker, fruit and juice box was prepared for each of us for our journey.
The quaint and charming courtyard and upper terrace were well kept and provided a great way to sit and view the city over a cup of coffee.
Being just up one block from the main square made it very easy to walk to the bank, go shopping and eat out at the local restaurants. Police presence was felt all around the square and we felt very safe even at night.
I would highly recommend this quaint little b & b to anyone visiting cusco.
