It is a family-driven hotel. Stayed from 27/12/2011 to 1/1/2012 (5 nights). Paid 20US$ per night (plus 10 Soles per night for the heater, see below), breakfast (bread, butter & jam or cheese, fruit juice freshly prepared, milk & coffee) was included. I made the reservation by phone the day before my arrival and paid cash when checking out. Credit cards are accepted.
* the hotel is in a quiet street, far from heavy traffic and night shouts
* my room was clean and so was the bathroom
* both the room and the bathroom are fairly large
* the bed was good for me, not hard and not too soft, I could sleep well.
* I always got hot water. Sometimes it was more like warm water, but it was warm enough to take a shower
* my room had a TV
* In the lobby there is a computer with internet connection free to use.
* WiFi connection free to use. I was able to use it in my room.
* the owners will truly try to satisfy all your requests at their best. In my case this included:
----> waiting for me at the airport with a taxi when I arrived in Cusco even though my flight was delayed by 30 minutes
----> whenever I needed a taxi (also at 5.30 in the morning to go to Machu Picchu) they helped me finding one and negotiated the price with the taxi driver, so that he couldn't overcharge me.
----> keeping my valuables in a safe place
----> lending me a hairdryer (there was none in my room)
* the hotel is a bit far from the city centre: you can reach Plaza de Armas by foot in 30 minutes or with a taxi (3 soles) in 5 minutes. I almost always chose to go by foot.
* the owners speak spanish but not english (except for the young son that sometimes was at the reception). This was not a problem for me, I can understand some spanish and with the help of a pocket dictionary I managed it. I only regret I could not have a conversation, they probably can give you some good advice about the town.
* my room was somewhat cold. I rented from the owners a heater for 10 Soles per night. I really needed it only for 2 nights.
* in my room the furniture was basic and looked a bit shabby. There was not a light switch close to the bed. I would have traded the TV for an abat-jour next to the bed.
I doubt you can find the same accomodation for a lower price or a better accomodation for the same price in Cusco. So, all in all, if you are looking for a cheap accomodation, I highly recommend this hotel.
