San Blas is the most ancient neighborhood of Cusco. It's streets are narrow and date back to the 14th century. Today it's home for the hippies and the hostels but also has good restaurants like Pacha Papa. Going down from San Blas to the Plaza de Armas, you will see the Archbishop's palace, which was, of couse, built on top of Inca Roca's residence and it's where you can see the amazing 12-angled stone. The angles on the stones were used to avoid crumbling with earthquakes.
On this street you can also find several craft shops that are less expensive than touristy markets.

Cute little plaza in the old town with a nice church. Creates a romantic setting in the evening for a stroll, and it is close to a bunch of cafes and bistros

I had the pleasure of staying in San Blas when visiting Cusco. Perched in the hills, above the fracas of Plaza de Armas (especially during Inti Raymi), it's a short walk to all the major sites, but a great place to decompress at night. Its steep vistas, sunny courtyards, and bohemian cafes were reminiscent of my San Francisco hometown, and I felt very comfortable here. At night, it was a great place to unwind, grab a quick bite and drink. There are several language schools in the area, and it was filled with many students, expatriates, and other interesting folks.
