          Nice, clean, and a good breakfast, and the location is excellent, but somewhat lacking in personality.

          Le doy tres estrellas porque es un buen sitio para quedarse. Sin embargo, a la gente que trabaja en el hotel, especialmente en la recepción les faltó la extra-mile para ser excelentes. Los pequeños detalles en el servicio son los que logran que un lugar se lleve las 5 estrellas.

          En primer lugar, ofrecen un buen taxi de cortesía para la llegada, pero rechazaron llevarnos al aeropuerto a la salida (consumimos 2 habitaciones por 4 días, realizando 4 reservas, la cortesía hubiera sido muy marginal y la rechazaron)

          En segundo lugar, salimos para el INCA Trail temprano un día y les pedimos que nos cambiaran el desayuno por un box lunch o al menos unos panecillos y bananos. Quedaron de investigar y al final nos quedamos sin literal, tener un bananito de cortesía. Bueno, ni siquiera se acordaron de decirnos que no habría ni banano.

          Temas menores, marginales, pero que hacen toda la diferencia entre 3 y 5 estrellas. Buen sitio, es.

          Booked this hotel because of good reviews in books and on the net. Not sure what everyone is going on about.

          Staff are nice enough, but not really that personable. Beds are hard, and pillows need way more stuffing in them. The rooms are basic (which doesn't really bother us) but are dark. The bathroom was really simple, and the hot water and shower pressure wasn't very good. The breakfast is also a bit annoying, with very limited choice.

          The pros - the area and position is great. The courtyard has a good view and the free transfer service from the airport saves a lot of hassle.

          I wouldn't stay here again, because for a similar price there are better hotels in Cusco.

          We're very happy with this place. It's clean and airy with two beautiful courtyards and gardens, down comforters and heaters for the rooms. The staff is very wonderful. When I came back one evening so nauseated from altitude sickness they gave me an oxygen treatment so I could feel better and they have free hot coca tea 24/7. They're always cleaning, scrubbing and polishing everything. Breakfast was fruit, yogurt, cereal, eggs, bread, butter, jam and tea or coffee. We're staying here again when we come back from Machu Pichu.

          Nicest place we have stayed in Peru so far.

          Beautiful veiws of the city and courtyard gardens to relax in.
          Room is clean with naked wooden beams & hand-carved furniture, Bathroom spotless with towels provided, shower pressure a bit dodgy but I guess to be expected at 3000ft.
          Breakfast delicious. Free wifi, and unlimited coca tea a plus for the dehydration & altitude sickness.

          Een lekker vrij dagje

          Nadat we lekker uitgeslapen hadden tot een uurtje of 8 gingen we maar eens ontbijten. We hadden vandaag een vrij dagje dus we konden zelf inplannen wat we wilden gaan doen. Na het ontbijt gingen we als eerste met een taxi naar een shopping mall waar ik "het" rokje wilde kopen waar ik het al dagen over had. Maar eenmaal aangekomen in de shoppingmall …

          Welcome to Cusco!

          ... of us went out for a really bad dinner & called it a night. 11/04 - Us & Karen have a free day in Cusco today so we had a bit of a sleep in. We are trying to recover, our legs will just not move. It's ridiculous!! We had a look around one of the market areas & watched some of the Easter Parade that they had going through the main street. We hit Paddy's the Irish Pub for dinner & some drinks, a very well deserved reward.
