Good location, tiny bathroom.
The location is excellent. The bathroom is too small. If you are bigger than 120 lbs, it may be difficult to get into the stand up shower as the space is super cramped.

staff excellent- mgmt decisions needed
The La Posada staff is excellent, with positive attitudes and a cheerful demeanor. Breakfast was fine and the coffee excellent. The hotel location is very good with restaurants, other reasonable hotels, grocery store, Plaza de Arms close by. There are areas of improvement that will need management decisions to address. The bathroom ceiling paint is flaking off, there is evidence of mold and there isnt an exhaust fan. I refrained from using the shower until the last few days for these reasons. And I did notice that the shower drains very slowly , builds up and has a brownish color to it which wasnt very reassuring. Toilet papers after a bowel movement cannot be flushed down the toilet or the toilet will flood. This was totally unexpected by me. In any case, when feasible I used another hotel or facility toilet that didnt have this situation. The hotel floors are squeaky all the time. And people moving around in the normal course of business leads to loud squeaking sound. This left me tired often and without a good nights rest for early morning appointments. There isnt a policy in place for residence to not disturb the peace after let's say 9PM. And on several occasions those I advised to stop disturbing my need for quiet enjoyment didnt stop until after midnight.

Great service!!
The staff was exceptional. They were helpful, friendly, and courteous. They helped us get tours, they helped us with taxis, They even packed us a lunch for our trip to Macchu Picchu. The only downside to our stay was that the room we stayed in had thin walls. Breakfast was above our room and the foot traffic up the stairs in the morning could get kind of loud. I would still stay here again because the staff were so helpful. Breakfast was good too!

Small & Cozy
Small and cozy hotel/pension with basic and clean accommodations close to local sites - Staff was great for all our needs - One day we had an early tour and they even prepared us a small snack box "to go" which was greatly appreciated. Room was clean but would improve just one thing, which was the shower. Feel like we wasted a lot of water in order to get the right temperature running - while taking a shower- Otherwise my congratulations to the front desk staff - they go above and beyond to accommodate our group needs !!! Gracias !!
