“Hostal Imperial Palace rates high on the friendliness scale”
Reviewed 21 June 2004

What the Imperial Palace lacks in comforts, they make up for in very warm and hospitable service. Over the course of two weeks, I and two friends made Cusco our base, and the Imperial Palace was our home away from home. All the help staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. We received personalized care - tea delivered to our room when we arrived, porterage of our bags up and down the stairs, and - eventually - hugs and kisses from the staff when we would come downstairs in the morning for the breakfast (included).

Just bear a few things in mind - at the time I was there, there was no English-speaker on staff. The hotel, itself is VERY basic - twin sized beds, NO heating, fluorescent lighting, and the water pressure/hot water availability seemed to vary from room to room. This is what I would consider a budget property, with a triple costing $40/nt, even if I think it's classified in the mid-range hotel. If you want a more modern, Westernized hotel, I would suggest looking elsewhere. However, if you are a seasoned budget traveler who would appreciate an authentic atmosphere and a friendly informality, then this is the place for you.
