"A beautiful building in a very central location in the old town. Room 123 off the courtyard was large and comfortable enough, if a bit dated in its decor, with a spacious, modern bathroom, but room 220 was massive and gloomy, with a huge wardrobe dividing the sleeping and sitting areas. Breakfast was fine. We found the shop concession in the central courtyard a bit uncomfortable - the woman in traditional Peruvian costume seemed to sit out there most of the day, sometimes with a lamb tethered. "
