This is a cute B&B with three suites, 2 in the front and 1 in the back so it's never too loud or crowded. It's run by a wonderful man named Carlos, who is an amazing host and will do everything possible to ensure you have a wonderful time in Cusco. Transport to/from the airport and breakfast are included with the price of the room, which are great benefits to staying here.
PROS: Large suites with plenty of space to relax, great hot water shower, comfortable bed with down comforter and plenty of pillows, plush towels, great radiator (Secret: push the button on the bottom to push out air and create white noise), great location (if you don't mind walking up hill a bit), nice breakfast (eggs, OJ, Fresh hot bread, granola, coffee, coca tea), good internet.
CONS: Not much privacy--it's rather noisy, but it seems that most places in Cusco have this problem. The rooms in the front deal with street noise and are above the kitchen. The balcony suite is in the back and much quieter, but has no bathtub.
Just one more note--Carlos absolutely saved our trip to Machu Pichu. We booked our trip through a company our friend recommended, and it was a disaster. They didn't know that the train wasn't fully operational and had set to pick us up at 6am, which would have made us miss the 5:30am bus transfer to the train. Luckily, Carlos knew about the train problems and helped us organize transport to the bus at 5:15am. He also let us use the phone so that we could call the tour manager to work out that issue and a few others we dealt with.
