I was recommended this B&B/hostal/hotel (it's not "specialty housing") by my boyfriend's older boss who is from Lima, and is a wealthier Peruvian at that. It was perfect and we were here for all 7 days we were in the area (4 days/ 3 nights of which we just left our big luggage to do a 4 day hike).
First of all, true heat doesn't exist ANYWHERE in Peru, unless you are at a nicer & pricier hotel, so this should not be a downside. Regardless, I found the rooms to be quite comfortable & clean and we moved to 3 different rooms during our stay (long story; not their fault). The breakfast is on par with every b&b we stayed at mostly, too. Of course, the location literally cannot be beat either!
The service was also fantastic - The staff, while on the shy side as we found most Peruvians to be, we helpful, accomodating & nice. True story: I came down with a very nasty stomach sickness the first night I was there and Louis (sp?) was beyond concerned for me. He happily checked in on me & my boyfriend, called me a doctor when I needed it & helped my boyfriend find a pharamcy & medicine/drinks/food. He also gave us wake up calls & called us cabs whenever we needed (often very early!).
Def. would recommend here and even stay again if I ever return to Peru.
