I spent nights at Casa San Blas before and after going to Machu Picchu. My luggage had not made it on my flight from the US to Lima, and the staff could not have been more helpful in calling the airline to try to find it for me. Lita and Rosa were terrific! I was picked up at the airport in Cusco, free of charge, although there was a charge for the return trip...my mistake was that I didn't confirm the rate with the driver (the front desk told me it would be 8 soles; driver charged 15 soles)
Rooms were nice and comfortable, not overly large but certainly adequate. My only complaint was that a disinfectant is used to clean the bathroom (not a bad thing!) that was really potent and I had to keep the window open to get rid of the smell. I thought it was one of the disks in the back of the toilet, but the maid claimed that it was simply the cleaner she uses. For me, it was headache material.
The last night, my room opened on the lobby and I thought it would be noisy before my early morning flight, but it was very quiet after about 10 pm.
I didn't have dinner at the restaurant but was interested in the glowing review that someone else wrote. Breakfast was included and fine with eggs, bacon, cereal, yogurt, and fresh fruit. There are lots of good restaurants like PachaPapa nearby, and the location (even up the steep hill) is excellent. Free internet in the lobby. Great staff, terrific location, and I would definitely stay there again...good value. Safe location.
