We stayed two nights at this hotel and absolutely loved it. The grounds were beautiful. Our room was off one of the courtyards and was quiet, spacious and romantic with a wood beamed ceiling and a window that looked out to the mountains. The bathroom was a nice size with plenty of hot water. The ladies at the reception desk spoke good english and were very helpful in calling taxis for us and helping us negotiate the prices. It is about a 15 minute walk to town or you can get a cab for 5 soles per cab (about $2.00.) I did not eat in the restaurant at the hotel other than breakfast which was a nice buffet that included both cold and hot items. The hotel had a lovely bar and made a good pisco sour. We stayed in some fancier hotels while we were in Peru, but I have to say, this one was my favorite. It just had so much charm.
