Like many other hotels in Cusco, Casa Cartagena is situated in a colonial-era religious building. It has been carefully restored, but I found the hyper-modern furnishings in the room somewhat off-key and not always the most comfortable. Very luxurious nonetheless, coupled with excellent service, including a welcome pot of tea and refreshments. The breakfast was not quite at the level... More

Staying here was a memorable experience, the place is a very tasteful restoration of an old monastery, and was a very luxurious place to stay. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms were beautiful, and it was extremely quiet and civilized. The restaurant was great for both the included breakfast and other meals. Great location, about a block... More

I stayed here for one night after spending nearly 1 week in the Amazonian jungle. I needed a quiet place to work as well as to relax before catching my flight back to the US the next day, and I was so grateful for the peaceful and luxurious setting. Wifi was reliable. My room was on a 2nd story with... More

Perhaps it was an off day but I can not recommend this hotel. Things started out well --, was picked up at airport on Cusco Day and checked in easily at 9AM (Cusco flights arrive early). Beautiful view of patio and clouds from balcony. I was given the welcome teapot of coca tea, good juice and some complimentary chocolates and... More

We stayed here 2 nights before going to Machu Picchu and another night on the way back. We were lucky enough to get the HUGE Presidential Suite on the last night which was special, but the room we had the first two nights was also great - modern yet charming at the same time. The staff here were so helpful... More

After a truly horrid trip to Peru, courtesy of AirFrance delays, we were very pleased to arrive at this hotel, where we were welcomed with coca tea and juice. The service was excellent throughout our stay, from the lovely (small) spa being fired up especially for us (alongside provision of more complimentary drinks) to the turn down service. Breakfast was... More

We were here for two nights. Great service. Nice rooms. My only reservation would be the design of the shower -- it was one of those open ones, so that the floor got soaked despite two shower mats. Besides the small complaint, the place was great. Proximity to the main plaza was close. It was nice that the hotel was... More

Rooms are huge with funky(?!!) decoration, beds are big & comfortable & staff were all very friendly. Great location near main square and several really good restaurants (like MAP & Fallen Angel) and museum of pre-Columbian art. Had an excellent massage with Olga :) Just don't arrange a pick-up at 8am on a school day - there is a primary... More

Such a beautiful hotel. We had the royal suite to celebrate my boyfriend´s birthday and it was amazing!! Fantastic service! Best breakfast we have had in all of South America! Awesome location! Only problem was the spa was out of order during our time there which was not ideal. I got a better price also by visiting the hotel myself... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Cartagena CuscoHigh in the Peruvian Andes lies the historic city of Cuzco, famous for its unique blend of Spanish and Incan cultures. Located just off a tranquil square behind the main plaza of Cuzco, Casa Cartagena Boutique Hotel & Spa Cusco emerges after years of restoration, which respected the original design of the historic house, to become one of the most exclusive boutique hotels in the city. Its walls of carved stone, which combines warmth, elegance and perfection, invite you to experience the fascinating magic and traditional mysticism that will transport you through time in this historic Spanish house declared a cultural heritage site of Peru.Its lovely atmosphere was built on an ancient Incan site, occupied by the ruling nobility of that time and from which it takes its name: Casa Cartagena, former property of the local Spanish ruler of Cuzco, Don Fernando Cartagena and Santa Cruz.This luxury hotel in Cuzco is an intimate refuge that has only sixteen spacious and comfortable suites, which perfectly blend the modern with the ancestral and luxury with the historical. The rooms are distributed symmetrically along a spacious patio of your dreams where time is suspended. It is located in the historic center of Cuzco, which was declared by UNESCO as a world heritage site.Recovery from an exhausting trip to Machu Picchu or the Sacred Valley of the Incas with our Qoya Spa will be something truly unequalled. It can be perfectly complemented with a delicious dinner in our restaurant which offers the best of local cuisine, "La bodega de la Chola", where poet Pablo Neruda was inspired and Che Guevara shared bohemian nights; it is considered one of the best restaurants in Cuzco.All of these unique features of Casa Cartagena and our warm and personalized service will make your stay in Cuzco an experience you will never forget. ... more   less
