A 5-min. walk from the main square, in the flat San Cristobal neighborhood, this quirky late-19th-century house has its pluses and minuses. The good: There’s a pleasant interior courtyard and sunny garden, and some rooms have high beamed ceilings and hardwood floors that are full of character. There’s also a decent restaurant and bar/lounge with some of the best live music in Cusco. The bad: Some rooms are rather cramped, the decor (like the pillowcases that say “Buenas Noches”) can seem weird, essentials like Wi-Fi and hot water can be spotty at times, and the rooms have no phone. If some of the faults don’t bother you, the value is quite good.
