Down a dead-end pedestrian-only alleyway, Cuesta San Blas 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 decor. The two-level junior suites on the top floor, with kitchenettes and wood-beamed ceilings, are a much better value, can easily fit a family of five, and offer spectacular views of the city below.
