We stayed here for 4 nights. At first, we were in a room overlooking noisy Garcilaso street just below. We heard every horn (and they honk their horns all the time), barking dog, and person walking by. After 2 nights, we asked to move, and they were more than happy to accommodate us. We moved into a big, quiet room.
They held our bags for us while we went on a short Inca Trail even though we weren't coming back to the same hotel.
The breakfast buffet was full of fresh fruits, juices, breads, etc. It was the same each day, but I didn't mind because there was still a lot to choose from. There were things I didn't even try, but wish I had like the crepes!
The location is great because it's practically on the corner of one of the main squares. We had signed up for a chocolate class before our trip, and I was happy to find out it was only 2 or 3 doors away! A couple more doors up the street was the SAS Travel office, and we'd stop in there to sign up for tours. They'd come and just pick us up in the lobby.
Cuzco is hilly, and the altitude was tough to adjust to. So, having a hotel close to the square was great for acclimating. Also, a lot of tours can't stop in the main Plaza de Armas, but will drop you off either at Plaza R. or Francisco. So, this location was more ideal than we realized. less
