Beautiful and very clean place. Most rooms with picturesque views. Wonderful service and family atmosphere. Tasty complimentary breakfasts. Tea available all the time. Just a short taxi ride (for a couple of dollars) to Plaza del Armos and to the airport. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. We will definitely stay there next time we are in Cusco.

rooms are clean and tidy, fresh towls are offered and TV. Very friendly personal. the bit more expensive rooms (Soles 105/night=$35) have a privat bathroom and heating (very useful because it can be really cold in cusco). There is a simple breakfast offered.
