Welcome to Cusco!
This is a newly renovated contemporary apartment. One bedroom with queen bed, Full size futon in living room for kids or extra adult. Located in the center of Cusco, 5 minute walk from the Plaza de Armas (main square.) In San Blas, very trendy tourist area. Many restaurants, cafes, shops in immediate area. Apartment has WiFi, Cable TV, full kitchen (microwave, refrigerator, oven/stove, full cooking and eating supplies), washer/dryer.

This apartment is the perfect find - first world conveniences in a great neighborhood, so close to the Plaza. The neighborhood has plenty of cafes, restaurants, art galleries and shops to browse. You will find all the amenities for tourists in this very safe neighborhood.
The city is surrounded by a number of ruins, the most impressive being Sacsayhuaman. The center of Cuzco is small enough to walk around.
The Cuzco area has some extremely good international food with tasty options for all budgets.
Alicia was very accommodating to our late arrival in Cusco. Her friend Patrick met us at the bus terminal and took us to the flat. The apartment was comfortable and near the main plaza with warm water, a washing machine, and working Internet. Patrick met us in the morning and we stashed our bags at his place since we had an afternoon flight. All in all, a delight to deal with Alicia and Patrick and stay at the apartment
Alicia was an awesome host - there were some hiccups when we arrived (roof leaking and fridge broken) but she did everything in her power to fix all those things and it was all fine after that. It's in a great location and had awesome wifi. But just a couple things - I personally prefer natural sunlight into an apartment, which there isn't any into the main living area downstairs. Also it is next to a hostel and restaurant, so there is a bit of noise and clatter from that.
I would recommend this place though just because Alicia is an awesome person who did everything she could to help us out and it was great to meet her. She gave us some great recommendations for restaurants nearby too.
Alicia was very nice to wait for us as well as we were running a bit behind. The apartment is very close to the main drag (Plaza de Armas). She gave us some excellent suggestions for breakfast and dinner that were fantastic (Jacks and Museo del Pisco). Since the apartment wasn't immediately booked up after us, she was kind enough to let us leave a bag in the apartment while we went to Machi Picchu and we picked it up on the way back. Overall, great apartment with a great location.
Alicia was waiting patiently for us after being an hour late, no problem at all. We sat down and Alicia gave us a run down of the things to do in and around Cusco. The apartment itself was perfect for our needs of relaxing after the Salkantay trek. There was a bit of noise coming from the small courtyard/entrance hall which is shared by other apartments, but not to much of an annoyance. We asked if it'd be possible to check out at 10pm as we were getting a night bus to lake Titicaca, this was no problem at all and at no extra cost. Perfect location only a few minutes walk to the main square. Strongly recommend!!
We stayed here for a month and it was great. Alicia's place is located right downtown in San Blas a short walk from many highlights and Plaza de Armas. Alicia is a very nice and accommodating person. The water shuts off most nights and sometimes the electricity can shut off but that happens anywhere in San Blas. The kitchen is well equipped, the shower gets hot, the WiFi is 4mbps and there is a washer dryer. The only little complaint is that the restaurant next door uses the blender pretty much all night and there is noise from people coming and going from the hostel in the building. Overall a good place and worthwhile.
Alicia's apartment is amazing! It's very large and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The shower got very hot; however, the give and take with Cusco showers (I discovered with the few I used) is that with hot water comes little pressure. We didn't use the tv but Alicia showed us many channels available. The apartment is in a perfect location--in San Blas close to Plaza de Armas. Due to a late train and an early flight, we were only there for one night but I wish I could have stayed for longer. Alicia was very accommodating, and waited for us when our train arrived late from Machu Picchu. She also have us tips on getting a taxi to the airport the following morning. Stay here!
