Very comfortable bed, beautiful layout of the hotel and the staff were exceedingly helpful. Would recommend.
Comfortable and charming with an excellent breakfast and 24 hour tea bar. Beautiful grounds and friendly service.
The whole atmosphere of this tucked away gem was perfect. From the stone walls to the wood burning stoves heating the restaurant in the morning everything was perfect. Great breakfast and clean, comfortable rooms. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Cusco. Only a 5-10 minute walk into the main square.
There was nothing I didn’t like
Interesting building and attractive enclosed garden. The small restaurant served great pasta and lovely breakfast. It is quite central and while it is on a small incline down to the town, I would ignore comments that the walk up is steep - it takes 3-4 mins of uphill walking - not too challenging if you are holidaying in Cusco.
The upper floor rooms looked better (better view) than the lower floor and the bathroom of the room we stayed in was a bit spartan and cold and could perhaps do with sprucing up. Am quibbling slightly but given the price of a room !!
Breakfast was delicious with a huge variety of fruits, cereals, breads plus choice of pancakes or eggs or french toast all supervised by the lovely Juanita in the kitchen. Great location, very nicely decorated with local handcrafts . Our room was a little on the small side but very nice atmosphere, with a hairdrier and dressing gown. Free water available.
Internet bandwidth so poor in the room could not download or upload anything. Extremely frustrating. Had to sit in reception to use wifi, but still very slow down loading. Drove me mad.
A stay at El Balcon places you in the heart of Cusco, within a 10-minute walk of Plaza de Armas and Cusco Cathedral. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. A shuttle from the airport to the hotel is complimentary (available 24 hours).
