We spent two nights at the Hotel Costa del Sol prior to the Machu Picchu leg of our Peru trip and then again for one last night upon our return. The hotel is centrally located in Cusco and a lovely walk to restaurants and around town. Service in reception was excellent - quick check in and we were served coca tea upon arrival to help with the altitude and warm up. The stone courtyard and decoration in the lounge areas of the hotel stay true to the culture of Cusco as the hotel is a restored, colonial home. The only negative I would say here is it was quite chilly in the mornings and evenings. The hotel had heat on and a fire going in the evenings but I had to wear my coat to sit down there at any other time of day...I assume it stays pretty cold because the building is so old and made of stone.
Our room (409) was very spacious and had an updated bathroom. The temperature in the room was a little tricky but there was a heater that worked. The others we were traveling with had smaller, standard rooms. Everything was clean. I observed that the hallways were a little worn and there was construction work being done on the first couple days of our stay on our floor but it did not disturb us.
The buffet breakfast was included in our rate and a great start to the morning. I think that the Ramada is an excellent choice for Cusco at this price point. Great staff and met our needs perfectly for siteseeting around Cusco, Sacred Valley, and our starting point to get to Machu Picchu.

- The hotel Costa del Sol Ramada is located in a colonial-era mansion that is considered part of the cultural heritage of the city of Cusco.

The rooms have been designed for the comfort of the guests and are spacious, peaceful and fully equipped.
