We stayed at this hotel before and after our visit to Machu Picchu. It is very centrally located across from the Coricancha ruins and Santo Domingo church. It is an attractive older building with a central courtyard and has been modernized to offer a private bathroom in each room. Room 205 is very spacious and overlooks the church. It is about a 10 minute walk into the centre of the old town (Plaza de Armas) where there are lots of good restaurants.
Room 202, which we stayed in on our return from Machu Picchu, has a sloping floor and two quite high steps in and out of the bathroom. One of us took a nasty fall here.
The staff are very friendly and mostly speak excellent English. Breakfast is included and is very good: cereals, fruit, yogurt, rolls and eggs cooked to your liking.
Oxygen is available free of charge, if required. Also coca tea.
