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!

We felt victorious crossing it, even knowing the hardships that were just across the bridge. While we were close ...

Only a slight headache obtained, not least cos I manage to get lamped in the head by the toilet door. We arrive at Chivay and have uno menu del Dias, and head to the hotel for a nap. Two double beds, three pillows and what feels like an orthopedic mattress - I do not want to leave. We sort of awake at ...
... was. After giving us a map and after our lunch we slowy walked the towards the doctors. My map reading skills improved after the previous day and after 15 minutes we got there with no problems. We arranged an appointment and within 30 minutes we were seeing a doctor. The rest of the day was spent at the doctors as Maureen had tests done and we waited for the results. We had plenty of time in Cusco and the main priority was getting Maureen better. It wasn't all that bad as there was ...
... rely on tourism to subsidise the income and without this they probably wouldn’t be able to afford to live on the islands. It was an amazing and very surreal place to visit.
That night we had an awesome 'set meal' (3 course) dinner back in town.
The drive from Puno to Cusco was stunning, the landscape was something very special to see and it was a beautiful sunny day. The mountains were also starting to get taller and more rugged. We reached ...
