“basic but comfortable”
Reviewed 24 May 2012

Pro's:
- great location in Cuzco, near the main square
- bright room
- bathroom a good size
- friendly service at front desk
- bright restaurant for breakfast (included)
Con's:
- small room - no desk or chair
- kept forgetting to supply towels
- basic breakfast - a couple of cereals and fruit - but great rolls!
- wireless did not work well in the room
- thin, raggy towels
- not enough toilet paper (bring your own)
- very noisy - the vents carry voices into the room
Tip:
- if you are a couple, ask for a 'marriage' room - that way, you will get a double bed and a single bed, otherwise the default is 2 small twin beds.

Lovely hotel right in the heart of Cuzco, a short walk to the market and the main square. Helpful staff and very clean hotel although basic breakfast.

Reviewed 16 April 2012

I had a top floor room so it was nice and quiet, although some on the ground floor said it was louder. I should mention that it was Easter and so festival time! The GAP reception staff were excellent and the main reception staff were also good. The cleaners were quite loud in the morning but, that's hardly the end of the world.

The breakfast was excellent - varied and well presented. The evening food in the restuarant was distinctly average and really overpriced. I wish I'd been less tired and saved some dosh. Also, the restaurant didn't accept US dollars, although they have a huge GAP contingent and GAP suggest bringing US dollars!

Reviewed 3 April 2012

I first stayed at this hotel in December 2009 while travelling with GAP Adventures. I returned again in April 2010 and stayed solo.

This is a great hotel, very clean and bright. My only suggestion when booking a room is to ask for an exterior room, as some do not have windows.

Great continental breakfast, wide selection of hot and cold.

Room Tip: If you're interested in a double bed, ask for a matrimonial suite. These are normally on the top...

Reviewed 22 March 2012

Stayed here at the beginning and end of the G Adventures Inca Trail tour. It was a clean hotel, centrally located with nice sized rooms and bathrooms. We had two different rooms, one which faced onto the street and one with only an internal window so either a bit dark or noisy seems to be the choice.

The one lady at reception was always pretty grumpy but they did manage to wash 16 peoples dirty laundry overnight which was a welcome surprise.
