This hotel exceeds it's value for the price paid. Quaint and warm place to stay, with great breakfast included, tea all day long in the lobby courtyard, and good services like airport transfers arranged, wifi, more than affordable laundry, and can arrange tours for you if needed. Decent hot water, although on the second leg of our stay it seemed...

The front desk staff is amazing. Help in every way. Rooms are sweet, but would like to say the front courtyard is very noisy and would have been better to have a back room away from the other guests traffic. The rooms are clean and tidy and very nice. Basic travel needs are met. would stay again. Breakfast was ok,...

Perfect location (central San Blas), great views over Cusco's rooftops, lovely spacious rooms, a beautiful courtyard (with flowers and hummingbirds), friendly staff, delicious breakfasts, coca tea on tap. Wish we'd stayed longer.

We started off here as a base for our mission trip to Chacabamba this is the best hostal I have ever been to. Beautiful grounds and rooms with the most welcoming and helpful staff. This is a place I will definitely stay again

Amazing view and architecture, but in the end is not functional!! - small rooms without place for suitcases and clothes - no hot water in the sink - no boilers in the rooms, so the hot water is not enough for 2 showers!! ( My mum was always left with cold water) - the breakfast is fine for two days...

Nice clean, smart looking hotel. Helpful staff. Bit cold especially during the day due to draughts from poorly fitting windows etc. Showers generally warm but ran out of hot water at night. Breakfast served between 5.30 and 10 which was useful! Breakfast was a bit small compared to others given the price.

This hotel is only 2 blocks from the main square. Everything in walking distance. A ride on the open top bus takes you up the surrounding hills. The staff are friendly, helpful and speak English. Breakfast is good - eggs cooked to order. Rooms clean and tidy with cable TV. They will store your main luggage while your away at...

We spent there 3 nights and it was absolutely amazing! The room is so cozy, clean, well planned and original. The heating system starts as 7pm and stops at 7am alone so you always have the room warm. Also the breakfast was good with bread, eggs and jam. Nothing bad to say about it!

This is an excellent little hotel just out of the centre of Cusco. It is about 10 minutes walk from the Plaza de Armas which is ideal. It is positioned on a steep narrow one way street which is interesting to say the least. The rooms are basic but fine. They are clean and have heating which comes on in...
