We were booked in the Libertador by Gate 1 Travel during our vacation trip to Peru. The hotel was mostly "innocent" from the outside, but stepping into the lobby...BEHOLD! A picturesque hacienda with a glass-covered courtyard lobby with another courtyard outside the restaurant. There is also an intimate bar area off the lobby which we used as a landmark during the interesting (but initially confusing) passage to access the guest rooms in the rear building. Our room for 3 nights was reasonably spacious, clean and matched the splendor of the rest of the hotel architecture.
This hotel provided bottled water daily and they had no trouble at the front desk breaking down our larger soles for smaller change. There is also a business center with PC's and free internet. The beds were comfortable, but we had a bit of street noise. We also had a sliver of a view of the surrounding hillsides over a neighboring roof. However, we normally spend little time in our hotel rooms when we travel and the Libertador is convenient to the center of Cusco. About 3 1/2 short blocks to the Plaza de Armas. We were also just across the street from the Temple of the Sun located inside the Convent of Santo Domingo.
The area around the hotel seemed quite safe and we had little concern being out at night.
There are good restaurants between the hotel and Plaza and more around the Plaza and beyond. Other than a very good breakfast buffet including a very attentive wait staff, we did not eat in the hotel.
