Somehow we lucked out when we discovered the Don Bosco Hotel located partway up the road that leads to the Saqsaywaman ruins. We had been looking for hostels recommended by the Lonely Planet guide, but luckily for us, they were filled up. The Don Bosco Hotel is like a palace, with high ceilings, huge rooms, and wide windows. I was able to reside in the 3rd floor corner room, which afforded 3-way views of the Plaza de las Armas, the mountains, and a great deal of the beautiful city of Cusco, all just a few minutes up from the Plaza de las Armas. They gave us a great price (my boys took a large room down the hall) during our non-tourist visit in March-April. The staff was warm, welcoming, and helpful. The breakfasts were amazing (I have got to learn how to make those juices!) Besides just looking out at the amazing panorama, one can enjoy peeking out at the schoolchildren next door as they play in their large asphalt field right next door. Staying at this very economical hotel was one of the highlights of our trip.
