This hotel, well its more than a hotel. There is no reception you knock on the front door (and what a front door !!!) and are welcomed in to your new home. Check in / out takes place in your room. In our case we had a luxurious suite, with a huge bed (very comfortable), enourmous fire place (and yes we had the log fire lit), sofa and table / chairs. Behind the bed was a large bathroom, his n hers sinks, a rainshower and huge roll top bath. The amenities were great with big bottles of bubble bath and body lotion - essential in such a dry atmosphere and plenty of complimentary water. The heated towel rails kept the towels cosy n snug. The under floor heating ensured that we were never cold.
Our room had two floor to cieling windows which looked out over the square. Each had wooden shutters and glass sound proofed doors. It was lovely in the afternoon to sit and watch the comings and goings in the square.
We had breakfast every morning which was served buffet style but you could also order eggs and pancakes. The staff were great really friendly and seemed genuinely interested in you enjoying your stay in Cusco. The food was excellent. We had dinner one evening which was excellent quality a shame we were really too knackered to enjoy fully! We also had dinner in our room one evening for which there was no extra charge.
The building has bags of character and the rooms are decorated in keeping with the overall theme. We felt totally relaxed throughout out stay.
We left the hotel for a few nights and returned for our last night in Cusco/ Peru, they had retained all of our details and we felt like we were returning home to old friends. After a long journey this was much appreciated.
The hotel is well located only a 10 - 15 min walk (altitude adaption dependant !!!) to the main square, 10 mins enroute to the sacasahuaman temple (and at this altitude 10 mins counts !!!) there are also 2 great little eateries in the square The Fallen angel next door (bar/ restaurant) and Mamas cafe ideal for lunch and snacks. The Larco museum is also next door.
