The pictures do not lie - it's probably one of the best views you can get of Cusco and right from your own living room! In addition, Miguel was incredibly helpful and accomodating when a local strike screwed up our travel plans to Machu Picchu. He and Viviana are right next door and pretty much available 24-7 as they run a lovely little hostal in their home. The benefit of that is Miguel is more than just a host but can advise and help arrange everything from tours and excursions to taxi rides to the airport.
I would be remiss not to mention that the hot water was unpredictable - which we were told is due to water pressure issues in the city - and when you're already cold a cold shower is pretty dismal. A flip of a switch usually set it right, though. I still think the place deserves 5 stars for the location and Miguel's hospitality.
