The location, character and texture of this hotel easily outweigh the negatives. Situated vertically on a hillside just the other side of Sacsayhuaman ruins, commanding views of Cusco are spectacular. Bring your panoramic camera!
Its all downhill to San Blas and the Plaza de Armas. A taxi back from the square is only about S7, if you just can't climb back, although we usually made the walk. Lots of eats and drinks and services on Calle Choquechaca on the way to the Historical District.
By the time we left on 6/24, the street out front was being patched up from the weeks of maintenance which forced taxis to park below and forcing an extra 2 blocks of climbing. But one will be forced to climb some steps once inside and the higher you go the better the view. In my 50's, it did take about 3 days before I became acclimated to the altitude. The coca leaves helped.
Bathrooms are cramped and leaky. Space heaters in the rooms are unreliable. Plank walkways telegraphed every step. Amenities are almost nonexistent.
But I fell in love with this place and would stay here again. The staff was energetic and helpful. The location (view) is unbeatable.
