My girlfriend and I stayed here 5 nights before and after our Machu Picchu hike. The staff was amazing and the hotel is beautiful but it has a few problems. First of all it's part of a private boys school and almost every night there was some kind of function involving lots of noise. And morning activities start early there so sleep is not easy here. The worst part is the dog that lives next door. Every night for hours at a time this animal goes into barking fits as people walk by his territory. I love animals but this critter needs a muzzle (or something else I probably shouldn't mention on line). Our first few nights were on the 3rd floor which seems to amplify noise from the street and anyone using the stairs and anyone staying in the room above you. great hot water though. Later we stayed on the fourth and slept much better but the water was barely warm enough to take a shower without freezing. If you can stand a luke warm shower and want decent sleep I'd insist on the 4th floor. The staff, on the other hand, are some of the nicest, hardest working people I've dealt with in hotels. Very kind and eager to help. The location is at the top of a hill above Plaza de Armas so if you're a sea level person it can be a bit of a hike at altitude but it's the closest place you can stay to Sacsaywayman, and is very close to everything else in town.
