Great Staff

The room was very comfortable, but be sure to ask for an extra blanket. (Cusco gets very cold at night) Mercedes met me at the airport and was very helpful with whatever one needed as a tourist. Breakfast was ok and always fresh. Not a buffet, but the cook asked to make sure I had enough. Nice people. It is down an alley that taxis don't always go on, but it's only a 1 or 2 minute walk from the road. Take advantage of their free airport pickup and it's all a breeze.

Fantastic hotel and host

Posted Nov 20, 2010
We loved Mercedes & our stay at Hostel Girasoles. Our plane was late and Mercedes waited almost an hour to pick us up and gave us big hugs.On the way to the Girasoles, she took us to a travel agent to buy bus tickets from Agua Calientes to Machu Picchu, because we worried that they may sell out. Coca tea was waiting for us in the lobby to help with altitude sickness.Because we were staying 3 days we took advantage of the Tripadvisor free 3 hr city tour coupon,bilingual tour guide- included Korichancha/Santo Domingo,Sacsayhuaman,Qenko,Puca Pucara and Tambomachay.She also recommended a great restaurant ½ block away, the Gustito Gringo where we had delicious grilled lamb, alpaca and trout, and fine grilled vege lunch sandwiches. She also arranged for taxis and confirmed the taxi fare to bring us to the Poroy train station (20 soles) and to the Cusco airport. Mercedes advised us on a strategy for our hike up to Huayna Picchu, so we could guarantee being in the first 200 hikers on the 7am slot and held our luggage without charge for our one night in Agua Calientes.Tasty breakfasts with bread, jam, butter, cake, juice, tea, and coffee. The plaza is only a 7 min walk with nice shops,Gatos supermarket, El Meson resfaurant with roast cuy. and money exchanges along the way. Also free wifi for our netbook which was very helpful to check in for our flights. Mercedes treated us like we were her own family. We highly recommend this as a fantastic place to stay.

Convenient and close to square

This hotel was convenient. Close to square and some good restaurants. The rooms were clean. Felt like a very safe neighborhood to walk to the main square.
