    I'd say the worse is the bathroom with no exhaust vent or window. If you do #2 you will have the smell for a while... and everywhere. Not cool. You know the typical cheap hotels from Cusco, if you open the bathroom door too much, it will lock and you need to go to the front desk to ask to open. It was not super clean and the bottom of the tub is shaped to sit inside but it is hard to stand on it. The room's windows towards the patio can be noisy if you want to rest a little more. No amenities at all. Well, I guess you get what you pay for... Oh, the location is really good!

    This place was unique and eventually grew on me. No hot water really, and the faux Renaissance design was interesting to say the least. It hosted Chicha, a restaurant by Gaston Acurio. Hot coca tea was always available. I sat on the corner of my bed and it fell off the frame, but otherwise it was comfortable and the staff fixed it immediately. They held our luggage for us while we were in Machu Picchu. Great location. Was it worth the price? I'd have to compare. In the long run, we liked it. Peru lacks infrastructure overall do we had to lower our expectations.
