A travelling group of 8 we were, all of us from different upbringings, etc different outlooks on life and expectations. However, during our 5 weeks of travelling, ALL of us agree on one thing. this place was by far the best place we have stayed. Granted there are a few steps to get up, and being in high altitude (and possibly slightly unfit to boot) makes it a slow process.. however, we would still all go back in a heart beat to this place. I couldn't imagine staying in any other place. it was quaint, authentic and comfortable. Had a wonderful view in the morning at breakfast and it was quiet. we were treated like family, the girls behind the counter (and the boys running up and down the stairs with our bags) could not have been more helpful. had left my mobile phone in the bus that dropped us off, within an hour the girls had tracked it down and had it delivered to me in my room! They helped out with everything possible, Our laundry was done for next to nothing in cost. During our stay (unbeknownst to us) there were protests going on in Lima airport, whilst we were out exploring the city, the girls in the hotel had kept up to date on the flight info and organised a driver to pick us up earlier than planned to ensure we didn't miss any connecting flights. We were always greeted with smiles and it really was a fantastic stay. Close to a few restaurants and a 10 min walk into the main square. they are strict on check out time, but that is because they would be constantly booked because it really is a cute little place with loads of character and felt so homely. even though check out was 8am, they held our bags until we were picked up. They also held ALL our bags overnight for no charge when we stayed up in Machu Picchu at another hotel and when we returned to check back in again, all our suitcases had been put back into our rooms ready for us!. Can not speak more highly of our stay. We will all remember the great time we had there. Plan to go again!!
