Stayed in room 202 for 4 nights for $40 with balcony and double and single bed so plenty of room to spread out. Rocky start with no pick up (admittedly I only confirmed on day of flight) and no hot water on arrival which is never good after a long bus trip. Lady on the 2pm - 10pm shift who is the best English speaker was always extremely helpful and resolved this fairly promptly and never had an issue with hot water for rest of my stay. Taxi from airport wax S20 after first price was S50 - They love to get into your pocket in Cusco. Location is great with main square a 2 minute stroll away. Cusco is very hilly but apart from the stairs up to the lobby this is a good choice...others much more of an effort. Breakfast was ok with the usual bread, jam, coffee / tea and orange juice, bananas etc and hot water through out the day for tea etc. Wifi worked fine on lobby floor (care different connection for the kitchen area) but not on the second floor...although they were in process of installing at time of stay) Also stayed in twin room for one night, single room for one night and double room on 2nd floor for one night (last 2 $35 a night). Pick of the rooms def the 3 at the front with balconies...street noise wasn't really noticeable as I think they have installed new sound proof doors. 2nd floor rooms are much newer / modern but no wifi as yet and another set of stairs to climb. Front door locked at 10pm but buzzer access etc. Very safe area. Jacks Cafe a very nice option close by (turn left out front door and past the 12 sides stone). Can leave bags as needed for MP trip. Plenty of night clubs in the plaza but can't really say they were that much of an issue...if you want super quiet then try one of the 5 stars in town. Beds were a bit hit and miss with the single in 202 and the double upstairs not giving the best sleep but the others were softer and pretty good. Best thing going for El Triunfo is the non hilly location and the great service provided by staff (although morning staff are not as strong on English) which was my fault not theirs.
