This hotel is a 10 minute walk from Plaza de Armas and the more touristy (expensive) San Blas area. The staff were very helpful, the room was cozy and had everything you could ask for to spend a few days riding out the altitude sickness. Highly recommended, and I simply wouldn't look anywhere else if I were to return to Cusco.

Went on a South America trip a few years ago and stayed overnight in this hotel for a visit to Machu Pichu. We decided to walk from the airport, bad idea. It took us nealry an hour to find the hotel. A taxi ride takes 10 minutes will cost you about 5 bucks and is well worth it. Very affordable and included breakfast. Very Friendly staff but at that stage they struggled to speak english. When I was there we stayed on the top floor(I think 4th) and there is no elevator. Because of the high altitude, we struggled with the climb, but it's not too bad.. The hotel is quite close to the train station.
They have a computer linked to the internet if you need to use it.

We were greeted here with a mug of coca tea which was a great start to our Cusco stay. The hotel is bright with skylights and a nice bar and dining area. Breakfast is scrambled eggs, tea or coffee, and bread with jam and butter. The rooms are simple but sufficient-- hot water and TV with quite a few channels. You'll be right across from San Pedro market which is fun for seeing what a real market not meant for tourists looks like and you'll be about 5 blocks from Plaza de Armas. It's a very safe walk which did at all hours of the night.

We could hear some music from outside until about 8 or 9 at night, but we enjoyed it and it didn't interrupt sleep.

Be aware that checkout here is 10 AM which is a little earlier than most places. Also, they close the metal doors on the hotel at around 10 PM but if you ring the doorbell someone will open the door quickly.

This is a lovely little hotel, basic but clean in a good location. The staff pick you up from the airport for free and are very friendly. The rooms are basic but nice, always hot water and good wifi. The best orange juice for breakfast in South America!The only down side is the smell from the San Pedro market across the way. If you are in any way sensitive to strong smells of meat you may find yourself dry heaving as you leave and approach the hotel! But couldnt say anything else bad about this hotel.

The staff here are among the nicest Peruvians we met. They were very helpful and accommodating. They picked us up for free from thr airport, gave us a small tour of cusco on the way and a coca tea when we got in. Also they offered free storage for our bags while we hiked to machupichu. And they got us a taxi from there back to the airport for 6 soles. Its nothing fancy, but for around 40 USD you get a clean room with cable tv and A great breakfast. Its a bit off the tourist path, but close walk to the main square. Highly recommend it.
