Cool hotel in Cusco !!
Excellent location and rustic lodge. The breakfast was fantastic with local produce and cereal made by the kitchen ladies !! only con- room was cold due to old structure and inadequate heating

The best breakfast in Peru
A delightful place. Nice room in an historic building and the best breakfast we had in the whole of Peru: the formidable lady in charge of the restaurant was really keen that we had a nice meal. A pretty good location - about 15 minutes' walk from the main square but you wouldn't want to be any closer in than that, probably

6/10 Good

The physical location in an old traditional house is great. Food was awesome. Rooms needed more places to store or hang clothes. Biggest negative was bathroom. The steam from the shower would accumulate and condense in the skylight. Then it dripped on you as you stood at the sink, brushing teeth, washing hands, etc. As a result, it had a very dank, unpleasant smell.

2/10 Poor

Pictures are deceiving. This "hostal" was located on a very dangerous road in Cusco. The road is so narrow that you're nearly struck by traffic entering or exiting the premises. The front door is locked and you must buzz your way into the property like a delivery person. There are no televisions in the room and generally everything is dated. The staff was rather rude upon our check-in. Breakfast was also sub-par. If I was forced to say something positive about this hotel, I would say their interior garden area is beautiful. It is also located only 5 or 6 minutes walking to Plaza de Armas. I stayed in Abittare hotel for 2 days prior to this stay and it was far superior. I recommend another hotel for your stay in Cusco.

Fantastic place to stay in Cusco. The second floor really offered us a good view of Cusco city with Andean backdrop. Breakfast was very good, with everything was made in house including yogurt, jam, coffee and hot breakfast.
