8 friends and I stayed in this hotel for three nights as part of a recent Country Walkers trip in Peru. It is authentic and well-located. Restaurant serves good and easy breakfast. (They have a full restaurant, but we chose lunch and dinner spots elsewhere because of the number of good dining options in Cusco.) Beautiful courtyard and good service. However, because of the authentic original colonial historic building, some rooms are quite noisy even during the night and chilly during Peruvian winter. Great location and introduction to Cusco. But not a "pampering" type of experience. All said, though, I would choose to stay there again because of location.

Room Tip: No pool or spa

Beautiful old hotel a short walk to Plaza Des Armas. We had one of the "colonial" rooms facing the street, which was nice during the day for standing on the balcony watching Crazy Cusco Cabdrivers go by. At night, or more precisely early morning, the busy street could get loud. The staff were very, very friendly and helpful, especially the woman who worked the front desk during the day. She arranged for a taxi for us to get to Urubamba (over an hour away) and spoke to the cabbie personally to make sure we got a good fare. I wish I kept her name so I could tell the management. Big bathroom with whirlpool tub. The biggest disappointment was the restaurant / bar. Under construction, it was a dump at the beginning of August.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the main street can get loud before dawn, but closing the doors to the balcony mini...

This hotel has so much charm, particularly the courtyard. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. We arrived very early, and were able to check into our room. What a treat since we flew through the night. The coca tea in the lobby was a nice treat too. Free wifi and spacious rooms were a plus. If it matters to you, there really wasn't much of a bar, but the city is filled with great night life, so we didn't mind at all.

Very Noisy hôtel due to major construction work in the hotel, next to the bed rooms.

No information had been displayed regarding this. This is a shame for a 4 stars hotel.

No possibility to have better room even after asking to change multiple times.

If you need some rest during the day, choose another hotel.

We stayed in this hotel on two occsions as part of an organized tour of Peru. While we were there they were very busy remodeling the entire place so there was some construction disruption (some areas blocked off, some hallways defined by plastic barriers, and some daytime noise, etc.). However, even with the construction we were pleased with the accomodations. On the first visit we had a standard room, about the same size as a standard motel room in the US, with a view of another building across a non discript courtyard. The bed was comfortable and amenities as expected. As this particular room had yet to be updated by the construction crew, it did show a bit of wear and tear.

On our 2nd visit later in the tour we were all upgraded to "courtyard side" rooms. It seems our tour guide complained about the construction noise during the day and got them to provide the upgrade on our return visit. WOW. These rooms were wonderful. King bed instead of a pair of regular doubles. Emense room, with seperate sitting area, new everything, great shower. Simply marvelous. The front door opened directly to the hote's central courtyard which was very convenient. Due to topography our room which faced the street was about 5-7 feet below street level so even though there was a window rather than looking up at all the passing people we kept the drapes closed.

In the hotel courtyard during the day was a Peruvian lady in traditional peruvian clothing (see picture) weaving that marvelous colorful cloth typical of the area and she had a baby lallma (or maybe it was an alpaca) with her. Quite picturesque.

The Old section of Cusco has several squares or plazas, the main one being Plaza de Armas. Then there are several others within a few blocks. This Hotel is within 50 yards of one of these plazas and within 2.5 blocks (less than 5 minute walk) of Plaza de Armas where the main action is. There's lots of shopping nearby for both "tourist" stuff as well as fashion and regular items (drugstore, market, etc) as well as an outrageous number of restaurants - mostly ringing Plaza de Armas.

As Cusco is at 11,200 ft elevation, having a hotel so close to many of the main attractions of the area is a great advantage for people who live their normal life at or near sea level. It's very easy to just walk 10 minutes back to the hotel for a quick rest when the altitude gets to you. Then an hour later resume your sight seeing.

The only real annoyance is that there are always 2 or 3 very persistant street venders on the sidewalk in front ot he hotel entrance that you must navigate through as you come and go. This is to be expected in third world countries but coming from the US we're not used to it. What we found worked is to ask them their name and tell them your interested but later. Then each time you pass by say something like (Hi Jane, really like your whatever, I'll be sure to get one before we leave." Then you only need to deal with a real "No thank you" one time when you exit with your suitcases and ar jumping on your bus or into your taxi.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly updated room. If you have the $$ go for the big rooms around the central courtyard.

At check-in we were greeted with coca leaf tea (supposed to help with the altitude). Great hotel that was once the home of the governor of Peru or something like that. Rooms were nicely furnished and the staff very accomodating - to the point of giving me a 3 prong adapter for my PC. Breakfast buffet was very good.

We were there 3 nights at the end of our Peru trip. Location is very good. Hotel is under construction and the pounding started just before 8 am and continued till after 6 pm. Open areas of hotel were very cold, such as walking from our room to the restaurant. Bar and restaurant must be changed now since they look nothing like the pictures we see here. There is absolutely no view at all. Actually no windows whatsoever in the restaurant. Bar is actually 4 chairs at one end of the restaurant near a fireplace. First meal at night was horrible. Breakfasts were good. Dinner second night was good, and watched over carefully by the food and beverage manager. Internet was weak and kept cutting out. Courtyard was cute and location was very close to plaza del armes. Wouldn't recommend.
