A cozy family inn occupying a beautiful colonial house about 5 minutes from the Plaza de Armas, this is one of the best affordable hotels in town. Rooms have wood-beam ceilings, older-style furnishings, and small bathrooms. Some rooms have upstairs loft areas. The small, covered central courtyard has a marble fountain and is set up with tables beneath the wooden balcony on three sides. El Sol Grill, a charming restaurant with a wood-burning stove, is on the premises, and service is personal and accommodating. The hotel owns the handsome hacienda hotel of the same name in the countryside outside Cajamarca.
