We stayed here on our way back from a trip to Machu Picchu. The hotel was very comfortable and the staff was fantastic. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. They also have a breakfast buffet that had a good selection of food. I just wish we could have stayed longer.

This hotel has to be one of the finest in the world! Each room is a little different and each has incredible character. Our room had stonewalls and plaster and bright colors to accent. It has to be one of the most unique places I've ever even seen. I went away wanting to build a new home using 1000 ideas... More

The hotel building is impressive, set around two beautiful courtyrards, and located in a nice square. It is clean and rooms are fine but couldn't help but feel they were distinctly average for the price we paid...minibar was extortionate, no tea/coffee facilities available in the room and it was facing a road. We found the reception staff to be fairly... More

This is a jewel in Cusco. It is expensive but after careful consideration we decided to indulge and it definitely lived up to our expectations. Service is outstanding and its location is simply unbeatable as it is right in the heart of the city. Its setting is very special since it used to be a Monastery. It is very well... More

We stayed for a couple of nights in March. As someone who has travelled extensively and often I would have to say this is without doubt one of the best Hotels I've stayed. Clearly not cheap;if your looking for a budget hotel-look elsewhere but for us our 2 night stay was worth every cent. From the moment our taxi had... More
