After a 5 night stay, we can heartily recommend the Monasterio. The hotel itself is beautiful, with the perfect setting in a monastery building. The public and private rooms are all tastefully appointed. The bedroom, although small, as would be expected in a converted monastery, was very comfortable and serviced to a high level. What really set the hotel apart... More

Even though the room price is a bit expensive, the building and history is so beautiful that I would totally recommend staying there. We had a very late dinner after finishing a tour of Machu Picchu . The breakfast is included in the room rate and it is unbelievable.

The Monasterio is a fabulous hotel in almost every detail. We stayed on three separate occasions on the same trip, and were impressed every time Rooms are old and full of character; the central courtyards are beautiful and the original monastery public rooms are stunning, including a beautiful chapel. Food is excellent, with pastries (at breakfast) to die for. Service... More

The hotel is beautiful as are the grounds. I particularly liked the bar area and roaring fireplace at night. It's a perfect place for a pre or post dinner drink after a day of touring. The rooms are nice - but nothing special. I liked the original artwork on the walls. One of the hotel's big selling points is oxygen... More

A visually beautiful hotel with comfortable and clean rooms. The service was very good. An expensive hotel but just gorgeous. We definitely recommend it.

We loved it. January is a good time for Cusco. Some rain, but the Christmas decorations are still up. No crowds. The Monasterio isn't full and the staff has nothing to divert its attention from taking care of you. They were terrrific. The facility is beautiful and it was nice to see a lot of maintenance work going on. A... More

This is a very good if not great hotel. The service was fantastic and the food exceeded my expectations. I was especially impressed with how delicious and gourmet their healthy and vegetarian options were. My one complaint is that the wifi is maddeningly slow, weak, and unreliable. It will tease you, promising to connect you to the web, but I... More

This beautiful hotel really enhanced our visit to Cusco and we truly loved it. The lobby and courtyard are gorgeous and make you feel like you've slipped back in time, and the service is excellent and the location couldn't be better. My only caveat is that the room was small. It was cozy and built around the natural space of... More

We stayed at the Monasterio for 5 nights while visiting Cusco. The Hotel was absolutely beautiful, the food was delicious especially the Hotel Monasterio Hamburger (Alpaca) the best burger I have ever had.
