A warm professional five star welcome.
A relaxed check on over a cup of the local coca tea.
Luggage was whisked away to our room.
The beautiful building is very old so this does pose limitations on the room design.
We had room 119 which was well equipped apart from no tea & coffee making facilities.
Bed was comfy enough but once again pillows so soft you might as well not have one.
More than sufficient storage.
Room safe in this room was not quite big enough for and iPad.
Some noise from a car alarm and bar if we left the window open at night.
The bathroom had a bath with fixed head shower over it.
A flexible shower hose would be so much more practical and versatile!
Lots of towels and good cosmetics. Bathrobes and slippers too.
Breakfast starlets at 0500hrs and had an excellent mix of cereals, breads, cold meats, fruit and hot food. Plus some dishes cooked to order.
Tried lunch one afternoon and if was very good too as was the smaller evening bar menu.
Service at all times was five star as was the food quality.
We had a night away in Machu Picchu and on our return were given a suite with a fabulous rooftop view across the town. Room 433.
It had 3 beds on two different floors and a tv which rose out of a cabinet at the foot of the bed which unfortunately took up much needed room. The very small bathroom (not big enough to swing a guinea pig in) had a shower only, but this time with a fixed and flexible shower.
Free wifi was good.
Location was good for us and the main square only a short walk away.
The staff remembered our names.
The service was definitely five star as was the food.
The rooms characterful and difficult not to like despite minor limitations.
The building delightful and impossible not to admire.
We would love to stay there again.
