This is a great and moderately priced hotel in Cusco. It is in the lower part of the Avenida del Sol, away from the business of the Plaza de Armas and all the tourist traffic, yet within walking distance of the center, Koricancha, and other attractions. It is a great location.
The rooms are good size, with a nice bed. The bathroom has a large shower instead of a bathtub, which made it extra nice. There is a small safe in the room to keep passports and documents, but it was too small for the laptop. The front desk can keep other objects secure.
Our stay in this hotel was in two segments, with a gap to go to Machupicchu. During the trip to Machupicchu the hotel kept our luggage in a secured location, which was a very nice service. Upon return we got a different room with an even larger bathroom. The only problem was that the Wifi signal did not reach the second room. It did not make much difference, since the Internet access in the hotel was just good for email but not for Skype.
The breakfast buffet was excellent, with a large variety of food, to suit both the local taste and the international traveler. And the service was excellent, replenishing the buffer constantly. The lobby also has a station for free "Mate de Coca" so you can better fight the altitude sickness.
Our tourist bus picked us up in front of the hotel. Since the Avenida del Sol is only two lanes in each direction, the bus cannot stop there very long. Better be ready before the bus comes. By the way, in spite of the generally chaotic driving, the drivers in Cusco are courteous and avoid honking except when absolutely necessary. This made the hotel very quiet in spite of being located in Avenida del Sol.
There is a supermarket across the street, and several nearby restaurants, as well as an artisan center (i.e. shops for tourists) across the plaza.
No question I am coming back to this hotel next time in Cuzco.
