This hotel was one of several booked for us by an excellent travel company as part of a private tour. We stayed here for four nights, two each before and after a trip to fairly nearby Machu Picchu. Our Junior Suite/Apartment room was fairly pleasant – plenty of space but only because it was split on two levels, the sleeping area being on a mezzanine. This meant trailing downstairs for night time loo visits – very inconvenient in a strange and dark location. It did have tea-making facilities though. One further drawback with these rooms is that their french door entry opens directly onto the hotel's rooftop terrace area, introducing daytime noise from the adjacent music school and other noise and privacy intrusion from groups of other guests – a weird policy for these more expensive rooms. Indeed, all the surfaces were hard, preventing any sound absorption at all. I understand that the standard rooms are dark as they may only have windows onto the hotel courtyard area. We only took breakfast here and, although good, it was chaotic at times due to the very cramped space available. The hotel is in an attractive part of town, quite close to the better sights of city centre Cuzco and its eateries, but the steep and narrow streets can make walking breathless at this altitude. They willingly stored our main suitcases to enable us to use overnight bags while we were at Machu Picchu and held over the bill until our combined stay was complete.
