This was definitely the most unique hotel my friends and I stayed at in our recent visit to Peru as it's essentially attached to an archeological site and has a very rustic feel. Once we finally oriented ourselves to the city, we realized it was also a very good location, about 2 1/2 blocks from Plaza de Armas. The first few nights we stayed in a small bedroom with 3 twins on the right side of the courtyard which was fine, but close quarters. We returned after a 4-day hike to a beautiful, much larger, room on the opposide side of the courtyard with 2 twins and queen that had windows that opened up toward Qorikancha (I loved this room). The only other downside of our first room is that we could hear a lot of outside noise and there is a nightclub somewhere close by so bring your ear plugs if you are sensitive sound when trying to fall asleep. I didn't hear the same level of noise when we were on the otherside of the courtyard. In June it's definitely cold and there is no central heating but with space heaters and heavy blankets, you are nice and warm at night. The staff there was very friendly and accommodating, we left our luggage for days while we went hiking and we felt comfortable having them move it in and out of different rooms for us while we were gone.
