If you stay here, you'll be glad you did. Its that enchantingly pretty. The entire property perches at the top of the San Blas district (think wayyy uphill) and sprawls up a steep hillside through gardens, trees, and small banconesque patios. Each room is like a little treehouse. Echoing the Incan aesthetic but with more modern, rustic, romantic leanings, the architecture reminds me of something a Hobbit in Lord of the Rings would create over a lifetime. Stones not only form buildings but are also decorative. Tree trunks double as pillars, stepping stones, walls. Climbing flowers and vines drip and festoon archways, peek in windows, spill out of planters and flowerpots. Bamboo and thatch intersperse with adobe, plaster, river rocks. If you book a room at the higher numbers, expect quite a staircase climb to your door. And truly jawdropping views of the city. Most rooms have romantic fireplaces, verandas, and seating areas. BUT the place is understaffed and a bit in disrepair, like all things in Cusco, so if your vanity light does not work, or you can't seem to get the fireplace lit without smoking your entire room out, well... you might be on your own. There was no phone in the room and it was in some common room I didn't know about in the dark. So... I had to climb up and down the steep 6 flights of stairs twice just to get a cup of tea, try to fix the above issues (unfixable) and to get the hot water to work. The affable skeleton crew tries to be helpful but honestly the place needs more caretaking, and more hands. Anyways, stay there if you don't mind some inconveniences. Its gorgeous and incredibly romantic. Also, the location in San Blas inspires you to stroll the district with an eye for the fantastic, which is a much nicer way to approach Cusco than the usual, plodding traveler's practicality.
