I spent 4 days in Cusco before taking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and I stayed at the Cusco Plaza II. The best part of the hotel is the location--it's very close to the main plaza, which is a big deal when you're a solo female traveling on foot. It is a very basic hotel, but I found it be quite clean and in relatively good repair. The accommodations are admittedly sparse--this is a hotel in a developing country after all. Although the rooms were quite cold at night, I was pretty snug under the cozy alpaca wool blankets. I always had a hot shower, although I did hear some people complain about cold showers. I suppose if you're taking a shower at the same time as everyone else, you run the risk of taking a cold shower (plan accordingly). The staff at the front desk were pretty helpful--I didn't experience any of the troubles mentioned by others. My Spanish is pretty bad, and they graciously navigated many an awkward bi-lingual conversation with me (in fact, most spoke English quite well). All in all, it's no 5-star resort, but it definitely did the trick.
