We stayed in Marqueses before and after a inkatrail to Machu Picchu with SAS Travel (which is a completely different story – never use them!). When we came to Cusco there was noone at the trainstation to pick us up so we had a discussion at the front desk about who should pay the taxi – that shouldn't be necessary. They had even written down that we should pay $ 90 per night, although it said in my contract $ 80. It was a discussion about this and if it included transfer in and out because of the lowered fee, although that also were in the contract and the front desk guy were pretty hopeless.
The first night we stayed there we got a room on the second floor with i window in the roof which ruined half of the night sleep. The rooms are big but not cozy, and it seems impossible to get a double bed (just two singles beds).There is wifi only in the front desk area and just okay breakfast. The staff is not very helpful and recommended Emperor as a place to eat – NEVER go there, they serve cardboard pizzas, the worst I've ever tasted.
The second night we got the same room with the same annoying window in the ceiling. Fortunately we were getting up with the sun and weren't too bothered with it. Marqueses looks like an old imperial building with huge furniture and big rooms, but you feel like you're in a hostel. The only good thing about our stay is that the meeting point before the inkatrail was at the hotel. But we wont use either SAS or Marqueses next time we're in Cusco, that's for sure!!
