The hotel is conveniently located a few blocks from the main square and is easily and safely walkable including at night with the usual precautions.
It is quite a large hotel for what it is and has large open atrium at one end The hotel is basic, comfortable, clean, the wifi is patchy and temperamental, the staff are helpful to any reasonable request and the restaurant breakfast was okish as it is included in the price.
I stopped here pre and post a G Adventures tour plus a couple of extra nights afterwards and here in lies the main problem! It is a transit hotel for tour groups and is very noisy.
The noise starts around 5.00am with people preparing to leave, tv's turned on, doors banging, people talking etc. The rooms are not well insulated and the noise seems to echo around the atrium which a lot of the rooms face onto. Rooms facing the road fair no better suffering from traffic noise.
If your lucky enough to get a room on a high floor away from the road and the atrium then this problem is minimised if not prepare to be woken early.
If you are just stopping at the hotel because you are on a tour then you can live with the noise. If you want to spend extra days exploring cusco then I would highly recommend you find a different hotel as the noise will be an overriding factor to what is otherwise an ok hotel.
Oh and by the way I am writing this at 6.00am having been woken by the noise.
