Hotel Niños II (Fierro) is the second iteration of the Tripadvisor star Hotel Niños Meloc. We were moved to Fierro due to renovations occurring at Meloc and I understand they're comparable.
Don't be fooled by the somewhat scary look of the tiny alley/street this hotel is located on, upon opening that door you'll find a courtyard oasis and sweetly appointed rooms that are very clean. We were lucky enough to score a room with a double and a single bed, for the double-occupancy rate. Perhaps this was due to my mentioning the Honeymoon word but regardless my husband and I were very comfortable.
The bathroom is spacious and the shower is huge, water is hot and good pressure (you have your own hot water heater so you use it up its your own fault!). The plumbing is extremely sensitive even if you do observe the no-paper-flushing rule essential to all of Peru... So be careful.
I used a fellow trip advisor reviewers tip of asking for an upstairs room facing the courtyard to minimise noise heard from the street and guests upstairs on wooden floors (I tiptoed for the downstairs guests). Still a fair amount of noise from the courtyard and stairs and street and all night doorbell ringing (you need to ring the bell to be let in) but hey you're on holiday right?
The Plaza de Armas is not a long walk away (or around $4 soles at night in a taxi), and I do also recommend stopping in at the large San Pedro marketplace also a short walk for some seriously well-priced souvenirs, bags, hats, purses and clothing.
The food at the in-house restaurant is tasty and moderately priced, around $25-30 soles for a main dish. Breakfasts start at $10/S. You can eat for much cheaper in Cusco but Niños profits go to the kids so its a good reason to spend your money here.
One hint ~ Don't take the hotel up on their offer of an airport transfer. We paid $25/S for a ride in a very dirty car (Cusco has better taxis on offer) that would have cost $10/S if we'd just negotiated a taxi at the airport ourselves.
