We spent there 2 days, great value for money, cheapest yet most comfortable hotel we encounter in Peru so far. Close to the center 7 minutes walk, hosts speak english and were very helpful with providing info about city and activities around.

Overall, a nice hotel. The maid/cook who served breakfast was incredibly sweet. It's not a breakfast buffet. It's about a 15 minute walk to the plaza de armas. They can help you book a tour to Colca but didn't really have any other tours to help book.
