    Excellent service! Small hotel with comfortable room. Was able to arrange 5 people in a room, with five single beds! Rooms were nicely decorated, beds were comfortable, room was nice and warm. Staff was friendly, professional and responsive. Free breakfast every morning, fresh fruit juice, coffee, fresh bread, cheese, ham,fresh scrambled eggs and fresh fruit. On days we had early tours they packed a bagged lunch for us which was great!! The one downside, The towels were not the greatest ( a little rough)so if you really care for that then bring your own. Overall excellent hotel. Hotel very well maintained and clean.

    The staff were excellent, helpful and efficient with our check-in. The Hotel is very close to good restaurants and the Famous Plaza De Armas, Cusco Cathedral, Natural History Museum. The Rooms are clean and basic and the attached bathroom is small. The showers do not run out of hot water at night which is great! The Hotel provides complimentary hot water and tea near the reception and there are desktop computers for emails and web browsing. Its great value for money taking into account the location and price.

    Great location. Family friendly. Warm welcoming staff. Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights total. It is conveniently located in the city center. We used it as our home base while we took day trips from Cusco. Antonella was amazingly helpful at assisting us plan and organize our stay. She booked excellent tour guides for our day trips. She even coordinated our trip to Machu Picchu - setting up the guide, train tickets, etc... We HIGHLY recommend staying at this family operated hotel. Antonella and the entire staff are fabulous!

    Good location, tiny bathroom.

    The location is excellent. The bathroom is too small. If you are bigger than 120 lbs, it may be difficult to get into the stand up shower as the space is super cramped.
