Tucked down a dead-end pedestrian-only alleyway halfway up San Blas, this is one of the better located mid-range hotels in Cusco. Set in a restored 18th-century casona, the hotel's panoramic-view terrace is its most redeeming quality. The standard rooms are smallish and rather plain, with just a hint of colonial décor. The two-level junior suites on the top floor, with kitchenettes and wood-beamed ceilings, are a much better value and can easily fit a family of five. They also offer spectacular views of the city below.
