I stayed here in July 2012 as part of tour. The hotel was chosen by the Tour compnay as part of package. I had two stays, before my trip to Machu Picchu I stayed 3 nights and one night. after I have no other experience of Hotels in Cusco so cannot compare. Also don"t know room charges.
Arrived at Hotel to be told one of the tour group in hospital with confirmed salmonella after eating dinner in restaurant his first night. Needless to say did not eat there beyond some dry toast in morning so i could take my doxie tablets.
Both rooms very dark. Wattage in light globes not really adequate for lighting.
Limited water pressure available,this is a country wide problem, Hot water not in great supply. Lukewarm at best. Only had one shower where hot water available and it cut out after 2 minutes. There was bath and shower.
Location, depends what you want, is away from main square but not insurmountable and I had no dramas with location,Someone else may do. There is a laundry and a local shop around the corner and there are supermakets and chemists nearby.
Staff pleasant and happy to help out. Rooms were cleaned appropriately and I loved the towel swans and elephants. On first stay had twin singles, as a tall person this presented problems as the sheets only came halfway up bed. Another group member had similar problems. Second time had double bed no problems with bedding.
Have to say spoke with other travellers whom I met later who stayed and had no problems at all.
TV worked, located well in room and had access to cable channels, eay to operate, Couldn't work out air conditioning at all but it didn't create any problems as I was warm enough when in room, didn't spend a lot of time in room as was out and about . Might be an issue if you spend a lot of time in room.
Peru is a third world country so bear that in mind when looking at accomodation options. I would not say don't stay there.
