On a memorably named street - Choquechaca - the memorably named Rumi Punku offers hospitality to the mid-range traveller. The Inka doorway that gives the hostal its name opens into a lovely courtyard surrounded by 4 stories of rooms. The rooms are not expensive given the fact that Cusco is a pricy destination in South America. The staff are one reason to stay here - they are very friendly, helpful, welcoming. They truly make you feel at home, from the moment you step in the door. Guests are brought to a living room filled with games & magazines, where they can sip coca tea while the rooms are being prepared and they are filling out registration forms.The rooms we had on the first floor were a bit damp and a bit noisy, being next to the courtyard. I would recommend requesting the rooms on the higher floors. Still, we usually had hot water, and the rooms were very clean! The rooms even had a television, and being on the first floor was very convenient, as we were fresh to this altitude.The hotel has internet access for free, in its game room where you can also watch TV and play games. They also have free breakfast in a warm room, with fruits, yogurt, fresh eggs, and bread.We were disappointed that their jacuzzi was not in working order and couldn't find out why it was broken or when it would be fixed, due to lack of Spanish vocabulary.
