We stayed here in September 2011 as a couple and had a GREAT experience. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. As soon as we arrived, they offered us hot coca tea as we checked in. Our room was very clean and tidy. We even had a small flat screen tv to watch on a rainy day and free wi-fi. We headed up to the balcony on the 4th floor and had an amazing view of Cusco! I think the kitchen chef cooked constantly, but she was very quiet in the evenings as she prepped for the next day. The breakfast was VERY good with many options to choose from and we also enjoyed the happy hour in the lobby one night.
This hotel is up in the San Blas area. It was a little difficult to find, our taxi driver did not know where exactly it was and we got dumped off in the Tanda Pata square. I did see taxis go up the road to the hotel, but there were very few and I think they were ones that had been arranged through the hotel staff. It would be worth calling to get some directions before you go.
This was a great spot to head toward Machu Picchu from as a taxi came and picked us up early in the morning to take us to the train station. The Plaza de Armas was within walking distance and there were so many shops and restaurants along the way, we walked everywhere! I would highly recommend to travelers without families. I think that sound carries quite easily and that a family with children might be heard by many guests. In addition, with all the walking, it may be hard for children to make the trek. All in all, a fabulous stay!
