I stayed at this property for 3 nights, but found another one for the rest of my cusco stay. I was really happy to switch. It is an place that tries too hard (stemware and white gloves for a very modest breakfast) and then doesn't try hard enough (night attendant thoughtlessly blasting the TV on full volume that echoed through the house.) It is just not worth what that they were charging when compared to either more simple hostals, or some of the other newer mid-range hotels. As for price, it was also disappointing to learn the range of rates people were paying. IT seemed to go beyond the normal bargaining that is typical for the region, for example one couple paid $49US, I paid $40 as a solo and 3 in a triple paid $30. Go figure.
Pros - location, cute living room, some of the staff were friendly (but as noted, most did not have much English if this is important to you.)
Cons - rooms are VERY small. I do light exercises in the morning and it was a challenge to negotiate the space to even do sit-ups next to the bed. Breakfast is way too simple for the price (only bread, juice, jams) and you can't even pay extra for eggs.
Some might not like the breakfast setup, which is all at one shared table.
