The Orquidea Real Hostal of central Cuzco occupies a renovated colonial house built on a foundation of stone walls built by the Incas. Accessible via an alley of stone steps in the San Blas neighborhood, it features panoramic city views, exposed wooden ceiling beams and efficient, amiable staff.
There are artists' sketches and working fireplaces throughout, including many of the guest rooms, which are appointed with private bathrooms, cable TV, safes, electric heaters and hair dryers. The ten guest rooms are simply decorated and some afford scenic views, while others abut an Inca stone wall.
