A good choice for budget friendly travellers.”
Pro: charming old property with a lot of character. The staff was friendly, especially the kitchen crew. Breakfast was good, enough cold and warm choices. Accommodating enough to change my room which was next to dining area (I'm glad I asked cuz the walls are thin). Cons: hot water was inconsistent. I emailed about taxi and pick up from airport with no response. Every additional service definitely more costly (eg. Taxi to Peru rail was 40sol vs. 20/30sol and I even asked why. Laundry double the price of outside). So if you don't need services and looking for no frills, it's a good choice. Reasonable distance to main squares as well.
Great rooms and delicious breakfast”
Place with great inner yard and most delicious breakfast we have had in Peru. Would come back to this place again and again.
Rustic looking hotel!”
Given the hotel is more rustic did mean it was colder than the hotels I stayed in as no central heat, only a small radiator. Very basic, didn't even provide any toiletries. Location was average as it was up a hill and a little further than expected. As we were 3 travelers the price wasn't too bad considering. Breakfast a little basic. Staff were very friendly.
A friendly and comfortable hotel with character”
We really enjoyed our stay here, staff were friendly and helpful and it had a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Everything we wanted was close by.
Goede sfeer, uitzicht op historisch centrum”
Prachtig hotel in lokale sfeer ingericht, zeer vriendelijk personeel. Grote kamer gehad, met uitzicht op de torens van de kathedraal en de Jezuïtenkerk op het Plaza de Armas.
