My boyfriend and I stayed at Los Aticos for 2 weeks! Here's the skinny:
Spacious enough for us to both unpack!
Keyed Safe in closet!
Table w/ one chair, night stand, small 13" tv w/ lots of channels (mostly spanish/5-6 good ones in english)
The bed is fairly comfortable. You only get two pillows, so consider bringing one. I've been using my travel pillow. The comfortor is very warm. It's a duvee' (spelling?).
The plugs are very reliable and did not blow up my chi hair iron, computer, phone, camera battery charger or tablet.
We loved that they have free wi-fi. If you don't bring your computer, they do have 2 computers downstairs where you can use the internet.
Breakfast is served downstairs daily: local bread, marmalade, butter, bologna & cheese, orange-ish juice (like tang or sunny delight), coffee, cocoa tea, regular tea, fridge for personal food bought at market, stove, microwave, toaster, any dishes you may need.
The bathroom is small, but adequate. The water pressure is amazing and they have hot water 24/7. Keep in mind that the hot is to the right (opposite of the USA).
Staff is super friendly and helpful.
The location is central to resturaunts and bars. There is a bar right next door which seems to do well. They play N.American music, have Karaoke and live bands and dancing. The only downside to this is that if you aren't partying then you need to leave your window closed to drown out the sound somewhat. It usually lasts till around 2am and starts at 9pm.
Additionally, the hotel is affiliated with Milla Turismo. They can book tours and tell you anything you need to know about the city. They are located about 20 min walk away from the hotel, but its a pleasant walk. We dealt with Maria, who was very kind and her English was supurb. We learned that it is best to book private tours so that you can go at your own pace vs. slowing down for the crowd. Also, going at it with a private tour allows you to take the paths less traveled and there ends up beign time to do things that you typically wouldn't be able to do if you were with a larger group.
I hope that you will go with Los Aticos if you come to Cusco. Carlos is the owner and he also speaks English very well. I only have one warning. Do not book through www.travelspot.com. This company did not send us the receipt or the itinerary for our stay. We ended up contacting the hotel directly and dealing with Carlos. Throught the process, we learned that travelspot is an affiliate of www.Expedia.com. I'd advise that you book via Expedia or directly with Carlos.
Enjoy your stay!!
