Rooms are great, fantastic bar and restaurant on the 2nd floor, limited menu but food is great perfect spot to people watch with a view over the whole plaza has a roof top with tablwa as well. Lots to see around the plaza while you get used to the altitude, lots of shops churches and restaurants. There is also museums...

The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the staff very pleasant. Breakfast was included and offered a nice variety of food. The location is right at the Plaza which is lively but can get a little noisy at night.The view from the top of the hotel was gorgeous.

Excellent location and the room was surprisingly good after my initial reaction as I entered the basic looking hotel. Well appointed, good size, nice attention to detail, very clean ....also very noisy at night. Seems that is the price you pay for being in such a great location. All night dogs bark, horns beep, people shout, fire crackers go off....

Location was marvellous. Staff were very helpful & most spoke English. The restaurant was excellent with friendly opening times. My room was fabulous with a huge bed, just for me! The festival during my stay topped it all off.

The hotel has a great location, nice if not fancy rooms and a great staff that was eager to please. We stayed before and after doing the Inca Trail and the hotel was great at letting us store the luggage we were not taking on our hike. We had inside rooms for the before visit which were nice and very...

Very nice hotel in a great location. Room was clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. The cafe has good food and overlooks the Plaza which is nice. Only downside was the "no guests" policy - the hotel would not allow our friend to visit unless we registered them and paid for them to stay. Never heard of this...

Great location , right on the main square and it was just around the corner from the office of Alpaca Expeditions - the company we had booked our treks with. On our first stay we had a room with a balcony overlooking the main...

Clean and tidy with very comfortable beds. Highlight is definitely the location. Breakfast average but sufficient. Would recommend Baco if looking for something better. Right opposite the square so super handy to everything. We walked everywhere and loads of fabulous restaurants within five minutes walk. Highly recommend.

My flight from Cusco had been cancelled and carrier LATAM provided me overnight accomodation in hotel. Hotel is average, located in the city center, with very early check out (10 AM). Good fact is that can leave your luggage for keeping until planned leaving time. Also can provide you taxi to the airport at reasonable price (10 soles). Evening time...
