This is yet another hotel that I want to give 5 stars, but I just can't. The building is so sweet, the view out over the town from the reception level is beautiful, they always have coca tea, muna tea, and coffee available, the breakfast is pretty good (the basic Peruvian hotel buffet, but better - they had tamales one morning!). The staff is friendly and helpful and patient when you can't talk because walking up the street or the stairs has left you breathless from the altitude. Our room was aesthetically lovely with a loft with couch and chair that I turned into my own dressing room. So what's the problem? To be nit-picky the lighting in the bathroom is difficult to shave or put your makeup with. But, more importantly. The only window that opened, opened to the hallway. It was stiflingly hot and we had no way to get circulation (they don't have AC in the Andean hotels). Then there was the skylight. This seemed really cool when we first arrived and we were shown how to use the remote control to draw the shade on it. And then it was 6am and we were staring at the very brightly lit shade over our bed. In their defense we never asked for a different room or a fan. I do recommend this hotel. The location is ideal as it is right by the Plaza de Armas. Just make sure you ask for some specifics like and external window and no skylight. Funny note - the road is so small that cars have to go down it backwards, because there is no outlet the other way and no way to turn around. It was some of the best driving I've ever seen.
