We enjoyed this hotel. It has a heater in the room plus they bring a hot water bottle at night. Breakfast was fine. It was just a 10 min walk from shopping around the main plaza (but remember it's uphill coming back, and there is a spiral staircase, not an elevator, to your room). The only downside: the toilet is set to water saving mode such that the tank only fills enough to flush about once every half hour. Normally that's fine but if there is more than one of you in the room and/or you get sick (which I did) that is not good, especially if you are losing it at both ends. You can imagine.
Coca tea is free in the lobby along with a basket of coca leaves in case you want to chew them straight. I noticed a tank of oxygen in the corner of the lobby for those who need extra help with the altitude. It's a 5 min walk to the Panchapapa restaurant on the lower side of the San Blas square so consider that for lunch or dinner if you stay in the Encantada. The area wasn't the cleanest or fanciest but felt authentic and safe. The hotel desk people were helpful and friendly.
