We had booked for 4 nights in this hotel but due to a strike which meant that we had to return earlier than planned from Machu Picchu actually stayed for 5 nights. This hotel is small with only 11 rooms and was a 16th century manor house. It is quite unlike other hotels in that there is no reception and you knock on the wooden door to gain entry. There was always someone there ready to open the door instantly you knocked no matter what time you got back to the hotel. The rooms are set around a courtyard and the bathrooms are enormous.
It is impossible to think of a bad thing to say about this hotel, the staff were exceptional, breakfast and afternoon tea were well presented and the location is perfect, an easy walk into the main areas of Cusco and also San Blas. We stayed 3 nights and then went onto the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu and were then due to return for a further night before travelling to the Amazon. However due to a strike we had to get the train back to Cusco a day early and were so pleased to be able to spend an extra day at this fantastic hotel. As it is small it is necessary to book early to avoid disappointment but definitely the only place to stay as far as we were concerned.
