The hotel is architecturally and aesthetically pleasing: a lot of thought went into this. The location is unbeatable, too; central, as well as having TripAdvisor's top-ranked Cusco restaurant - Le Soleil - down the (side) street. The staff are genuinely pleasant.
Sensitive to noise? Ask for a courtyard room, but check if courtyard parties are planned; the music reverberates throughout the hotel. The regular/deluxe rooms aren't large, but they're well-appointed, with good reading lights, tea/coffee equipment and US-plug compatible sockets. Excellent beds and bedding, effective blackout curtains. Good water pressure; the water's hotter in the morning. Rainforest shower only, which is nice if you don't mind getting your hair wet.
There's coca tea in the lobby, and also superior Earl Grey leaf tea (ask for a strainer). The breakfast buffet is varied and excellent, with great coffee and hot chocolate, too. The breakfast ambience would be even better without the tip bowl by the egg station (!), a tip box when you sign the chit, and the waiters' persistent self-introductions. An easy fix. It remains a lovely hotel.
