We stayed here for a few days before hiking the Inca Trail to help adjust to the altitude. We were greeted by a friendly staff and coca tea (for the altitude) and muna (mint) tea (for digestion). There was a group of 8 of us. After one night, they kindly moved us all into an area where we could be together once there was availability. The location was perfect and within walking distance to the more touristy part of town (Plaza de Armas). There were hot showers, no central heating but there were space heaters, 2 free water bottles in the room, free breakfast (scrambled eggs, sausage, tamales, yogurt, granola, fruit, juices, coffee, tea, milk, toast, croissants). Other tourists had mentioned that the hotel packed a to-go breakfast for them on the morning they left for the Inca trail, but they did not offer us this. We were able to quickly grab a croissant before we left though. My only complaint was that the shower did not drain very well. FYI if you come home late, the doors will be locked (one night we came home around 2am and the door was locked so we had to wait for a little bit before staff came to open the door for us). There was free internet in the common areas. The staff was great at helping us find things to do and places to eat at. When we returned after hiking the Inca Trail, it really felt like home. Re-checking-in was a painless process. They brought our bags up to the room for us. Returning to internet, hot showers, and a soft and warm bed was amazing! Would definitely recommend this hotel!
