BigCityFan This is a fairly centrally located hotel. You can walk to the main square, places of interest, and good restaurants in a few minutes. Comfortable and relaxed. Staff are very pleasant to deal with. Breakfast staff in particular were very sweet. A good find for a stay in a lovely city.

jonathanda Great service, nice rooms. We booked a great 3-day tour of the Colca Canyon. Close to the plaza de armas and the touristic centre. Recommended!
joriedi2 La Posada del Kuraka is a great deal. Period. The rooms are small and basic, the water was mostly luke warm, but the location is good (it really isn't a long walk at all to the main plaza, just five minutes or so). What we liked most about our stay was Jose, the owner. Jose was very friendly and helpful (though his English is limited, but our Spanish was limited as well and we made it work!), always available, and he let us keep our bags locked up and use the facilities even after we'd checked out and while waiting to take a 9 pm night bus back to Cuzco. The terrace up top has a beautiful view of the entire city and surrounding mountains and volcanoes, and that was a huge plus to staying there. If you want inexpensive and basic, then La Posada is a great place to stay.
Sander I seem to have a thing for rooftop terraces, as I haven't yet disliked a place with a rooftop terrace. The Colonial House Inn (the regular one, not number "II") was no exception, as I spent many lazy hours up there, gazing at the towering shapes of Chachani and El Misti at the horizon, and enjoying the wonderful breakfasts or pitchers of fresh orange juice which the always helpful and friendly staff kept tirelessly bringing me. The resident kitty and visiting hummingbirds provide alternative entertainment. The big downside of this place is that getting hot water is a bit of a gamble (you have the best chance during daylight hours), and street noise (especially from the barking dogs across the road) can get annoying at times (but then, I have yet to find _any_ accommodation in Peru which does not suffer from street noise). On the plus side, the rooms remain wonderfully cool even on the hottest days, and it's hard to beat the price. Plus, did I mention the wonderful rooftop terrace yet? :)
enrique.sarmien It's a nice place to stay with really good service. It's 4 blocks away from main square so don't expect extreme silence. The room was big and so was the bathroom. Clean and with a lot of light. The price is good and the service, I repeat, was really good.
manfred_ko Very nice little posada in a cozy old peruvian mansion with a nice interior courtyard and a wonderful rooftop which allows you to see the El Miste. Nicely painted, although the whole place needs a little spruce- up. But then what can you expect more for the little price you pay. So, from this point of view, the place is a very good value. There is little kitchen available as well. And the lady owner is extremely nice and will do anything to satisfy you. Wifi is available across the courtyard and works very well. In summary, I only can recommend this little hostal.
