Though Peruvian chain Casa Andina's collection of mid-range hotels in Cusco doesn't stand out as much as it once did, this is still an overall decent value if all you are looking for is a good location and the standard set of amenities you'd find at any average American hotel. The Qorikancha location, three blocks from the Plaza de Armas, is less claustrophobic than the two hotels near the plaza. Simple rooms with blood-red walls, green woodwork, and comfy beds, surround two laid-back courtyards. It's not quite as nice or new as Casa Andina's San Blas hotel or the pricier Private Collection hotel, and the tired faux-Andean décor could certainly use a face-lift, but you’ll sleep well here. The water will be hot, the Wi-Fi will work, and the breakfast buffet has everything you could want.
