Two blocks away from the main plaza in the hearth of the ancient district of San Blas. Colonial-style house with gardens and the best views of the city. Friendly and professional staff, confortable rooms and yummy included breakfast.

We loved the location...just down the street from Plaza del Armas. And don't let the word hostel scare you away from this property. Lots of great food. Lots of great shopping. Lots of historical sights. We couldn't have been happier to be staying right in historic Cusco. We were

A few nights in this delightful hotel while we enjoyed Cusco and took a day trip to Machu Picchu and back. The hotel itself is an older building around a couple of courtyards with some of the rooms [including ours] built back into the bedrock of the hill behind while offering

Yes taxis stop at the front door although the lane is very narrow.The problem you may have is that although the hotel is pretty central it is half way up a fairly steep lane.The altitude is such is such that even fairly fit people tend to puff quite a bit when walking back to the hotel although it's only steep for less than a hundred yards. When down the hill it's about 10 minutes,or less, walk on the flat to the central square

You might be able to get into your room early, but more likely you can/will leave your baggage in a secure area at your hotel. Then go enjoy an early morning.

The travel agent for our group of 14 had arranged for pickup at airport by the hotel. Transfer to airport on departure was done through hotel staff. There were a large number of taxis available at the airport. E-mailing the hostal for recommendations or suggestions is a good idea; they may be able to arrange transfer for you. If you get a cab at the airport, arranging the fare in advance is a good idea.

"all rooms are good!"
"A room around the main courtyard can be a little noisy but nothing too bad."
"Second floor rooms offer great views but you can get the same great views if you are on the first floor by walking out to the courtyard."
"Rooms at bottom of garden are quieter and have best views"
"Get room number 1 , great view"
