We were just in Cusco in December 2013 and we stayed at this hotel for our time in this city. The hotel is in the city of Cusco very close to the centre but still out in a side street just enough so you have complete peace for your sleep. The city centre is about a 10 minute walk only. There are so many wonderful restaurants in the vicinity with some of the best food I have ever had in my life for great prices! So much to choose from and the staff was excellent. Especially a young man named Jair/Jiar (not sure of the spelling) who helped often in reception and was just wonderful, attentive and made sure everything was always just right for my family and I. The rooms are spacious and pretty and the beds comfortable. For that price, it can't get any better than that! Great value for your money and the breakfast selection was incredible. I do not need much, but nobody can complain about the selection there. I would go back at any time. It is about 20 minutes from the airpot and costs about $20 USD for a van since there were more of us. It is in the perfect location and you do not need a car or even public transport for the main attractions of the city centre. Highly recommend it.
