The Tierra Viva Cusco Centro is an excellent value for the price you will pay, and though we had an issue or two, I recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again
The hotel has a very solid location, maybe five blocks from the Plaza de Armas and within walking distance of essentially everything: the "centro" in the hotel's title is not an embellishment.
It also provides an excellent buffet breakfast, with a variety of hot and cold options, and dependable Wi-Fi within the room price. And that price is very decent -- we spent 90$ a night, and got a lot of value for it. In addition, the room, bathroom, and bed were very spacious, and the public spaces are quite attractive.
It got very very cold in the hotel at night and our in-room radiator was not up to the challenge. When we asked the front desk staff to help us fix it, they were friendly but never came. That was a bummer when I was shivering all night. In addition, while several members of the staff were friendly and helpful, we were put off somewhat brusquely when we asked if we could change money at the front desk. It wasn't a big deal (and frankly I'm glad of it, as the local money exchanges gave a great rate) but between that and the lack of help with the radiator I was a little miffed.
The Bottom Line:
Though my stay was not perfect, the small issues didn't overshadow all the good things I got for my mere 90$. I loved Cusco and I really liked how this hotel allowed me to explore the city and then come back for some good breakfast, bed, and WiFi. I'll just bring a spare blanket (or three) next time
