Great location
Hotel is a short walk from Plaza de Armas. People at the reception had fantastic recommendations for food. Every restaurant they suggested would be a 5 star. They also helped us plan our sacred valley tour and booked a taxi for us.

Perfect place to stay in Cusco
We enjoyed the characteristic architecture and the kindness of the people. Beautiful flowers in the backyard. The breakfast was delicious and made in front of you. Great position to visit Cusco.

Great place for a few nights
A nice, quiet place to stay while in Cusco. The rooms were a bit small but they were clean and a perfect size for just one night! Very cute courtyard area. Located on a very narrow street, but less than a 10 minute walk to Plaza de Armas.
Hannah, us1 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Quite and Convinient
We were booked and stayed for 4 nights. The breakfast was alright and the same everyday. The place was clean however some of the fixtures need attention. Example the bathroom mirror is for a 6 foot person. My wife is only 5 foot and could barely see her top of her head. Lights are dangling and not secured. TV and telephone not working.
