We also stayed here at the front and rear of our trip to Peru. The two nights at the beginning of the trip, our room was on the second floor, facing the courtyard. It was hot, but the unique fan they rigged to the ceiling (actually a tabletop-style oscillating fan) helped circulate the air from the small window in the room. Room was basic, with very poor lighting, so if you're planning to read anything at night, bring a headlamp. They didn't give any shampoo or lotions, just 2 very small bars of soap in the bathroom. Also, be prepared for dogs barking all night.
The area is very safe to walk at night and the hotel is just a few blocks from the square and all the restaurants, nightlife, and shopping one could want.
When we returned 10 days later we were given a much nicer room, but still dimly lit.
Our flight back to the US didn't leave until midnight, and we had to be out of the room by noon, so they locked up our 2 bags for us while we did some more sightseeing. We asked the desk clerk (a young man with zero personality) if we could return to the hotel and hang out in the large room off the lobby that had couches and tables for a couple hours till our driver came to get us at 8 p.m. He said "NO". We told him we had nowhere to go and since our bags were there in the lock-up, and we had stayed here a total of 4 nights, couldn't we just sit and read for an hour or two. "NO". We asked him if we could sit outside on the sidewalk. He answered "YES". We're hoping he just couldn't understand us. The staff really wasn't that personable.
