This is a splendidly located little hotel with very friendly service. It is situated on a very busy corner of the Plaza de Armas and from the small lobby you can see through the windows and the glass door the continuous flow of visitors and locals coming in and out the plaza. In fact, you feel that you are still in the plaza standing in the lobby. The lobby itself is small and can be quite crowded when group of tourists check in and out. Surprisingly for an old building, the hotel has a spacious elevator that eliminates the pain of hauling bulking trek gear or luggage up narrow stairs, as in other hotels in Cusco. If you want to be in a more quit and relaxing atmosphere go to the cafeteria in the second floor. A long narrow balcony facing the plaza provides a good setting for a relaxing pisco-sour after a long day sightseeing the city. The Plaza de Armas is the living center of social, community, religious and cultural activities of Cusco, and from the balcony of this hotel you have a good chance to witness some of these activities. I spent part of a sunny morning watching a big parade of elementary and high-school students that occupied the whole plaza. I got a room with a window facing calle Mantas –another busy street- that although smallish was tastefully decorated and with a sunny bathroom. There was hot water in abundance, and everything was extremely clean. The hotel employees were extremely nice and helpful in providing information, and arranging tours and transportation, and very attentive in general. Even more, I always remember them smiling. In summary, an excellent place to stay in Cusco among attentive hostess without breaking the family budget.
