I want to give this place a better review - Maybe it was just our room... but the walls were so thin I felt like every person coming in the front door was coming into my room!
The people were very friendly, especially Mercedes! They greeted us with a hot cup of coca tea which was great....along with way too much information on tours which was not so great. After traveling, we really didn't want to hear about tours right away.
The room was definitely clean, but very basic and not comfortable. We only stayed 1 night.
The thing that really bugged me was that we went out for some breakfast before checkout time, and when we returned, all of our stuff had been moved to a closet.
I do agree with a previous poster that the alley was really gross. I know, there is really nothing anyone can do about that, but it was exceptionally gross compared to other streets.
I did really love meeting Mercedes and I do understand why people here have given her such great reviews.
I think this place would be appropriate for people looking for a budget hotel/b&b option in cusco.. we just needed slightly more peace&quiet/comfort!

... my back. Weird. And not at all relaxing. Really I mostly wanted my legs done but had no idea how to say that in Spanish. On our last night in cusco we went out to dinner with our old roomies Sara and Debbie. We had been at the restaurant a couple weeks before and everything was excellent so we opted to go back. The food wasn't nearly as good the second time around, but our fav part of the first night was our server, and he wasn't working when we went back the second ...
Today we travelled through the Sacred Valley to Ollantaytambo. We were swamped by pedlars as soon as we got off the bus. I made the mistake of taking a photo down a lane way and the woman who had been standing there quickly followed me up for some money as payment for taking her photo. Lesson learned. After walking around the village Owen climbed the mountain to some Incan ruins which he thought was amazing. I am still feeling wobbly so stayed in ...
... and in particular on Lake Titicaca, is on the list, as is heading up North to start day hikes in an area called Huarez. If all goes smoothly, I will have an opportunity to volunteer with a non profit organization which is located at a coastal town in northern Peru... known for it to be a 'hippy' surf kind of a town. My favorite kind of place. More on plans at another time. Off to my first yoga class in what seems like ...
... two aqueducts transport and maintain a constant flow of clean water throughout the year.
The ruins of Koricancha (Temple of the Sun) are considered the most spectacular temple in the Inca Empire. As well as being the main observatory for the Incas, some 4000 priests and their attendants once lived within its confines. The temple was dedicated to worshipping the sun, the most important deity for the Inca's. Apparently the temple originally contained a lot ...
... sadly opened for a couple of hours, it was a little tricky going down the steps in the rain as they were slippy and steep. We went past some more inca ruins, which were amazing and arrived into camp to the obligatory afternoon tea. Bed was early again as we were being woken at 3:30 to start the final day trek to what we had all been waiting for Machu Picchu! Day 4 - oh my god it rained so heavily overnight, I thought the tent was going to collapse so again had ...
