Great reception at the airport, efficient transfer to the hotel. Had room #1, the suite, with a second bed added to the room for my 14 yr old before we went trekking in the mountains. Balcony view was outstanding, hot water was great, great location, people could not be nicer, quiet respite and great place to "land in Cusco." Big fluffy towels, great garden to sit in, nice covered porch on the second floor to watch the City below. Very much liked El Balcon. Super value, nice bed, great covers, great woodwork doors and balconies, not the Sheraton, but you shouldn't come to Peru and/or Cusco if you are looking for the Sheraton, should you? This is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it. Only substantive advice (beyond book room #1 if you can) is to bring a small bottle of shampoo. They provide soap, but not shampoo.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located only three blocks from the Plaza de Armas in the city of Cusco, El Balcon has a commanding view of the entire city, cathedrals, churches, mountains and the Ausangate glacier. El Balcon is a renovated colonial Casona that dates back to the 1630s built atop the preceding Inca terraces. Inca stone work and colonial balustrades mesh harmoniously around terraced gardens creating an atmosphere that is beautiful, historic and authentically Peruvian. Some of our amenities and services include free airport transportation, complimentary hot breakfast and buffet, laundry, and free yoga classes. We are happy to help with any travel arrangements so that our guests can experience the best that Cusco and the Sacred Valley has to offer. At El Balcon we strive to provide our guests with the highest level of hospitality so that they have all they need to feel comfortable at our family establishment. ... more less
