We stayed here for two nights in June; could have stayed a week. The hotel architecture is historic and stunning. The rooms are large, full of beautiful detail, and well appointed. Breakfast overlooking the magnificent courtyard was a wonderful way to wake up. As we had arrived late, we had great wines and tasty bites in the impressive and cozy library bar. They have a grand chapel. This is a gorgeous property.
Their service is stellar, with every request politely and efficiently handled. The location is ideal with a short walk to the central plaza with the Cathedral, shops and restaurant.
We will go back to Machu Picchu, and will return to Cuzco for more Inca sightseeing. When we do, we will return to the Hotel Monasterio as well.
