Excellent staff who provided great service. Tip: the two loft rooms were very hot when we stayed (mid Nov) so make sure you ask for a fan. Very good location and close to many of the main attractions in Cusco

This hotel is in a quiet back street and was a bit difficult to find. The rooms are clean but on the small size. The decor and service are European in style and standards with plenty of hot water.

I loved everything about this place! It felt very homey, there aren't many guests so it feels very quiet and intimate. The staff were super friendly and helpful with us, and I noticed they were very attentive to their other guests too. The hotel decor is very nice, colorful and playful yet simple. They offer breakfast in the AM, and...

The room was comfortable, location is great just around the corner from the 12 Angle stone. You can easily walk to several sites of interest. Good quality food for the early breakfast and very friendly staff that helped booking tours and shuttles to the airport.
