My family stayed at the Hotel Monasterio in Cusco in July, and LOVED it!!!
The overlapping and intersecting layers of history as you experience modern luxury in the context of a 16th century monastery, is mind-contorting in the loveliest possible way! Rooms are decorated with hand-painted frescoes and colonial-style paintings, while maintaining the original terra-cotta brick floors and vaulted ceilings (it seems). But the furniture is ample and comfortable, and the bathrooms are luxurious! It's a place where free wifi meets Gregorian chant music, where a history of austerity collides with a breakfast buffet over-laden with fresh fruit and French pastries. Where paintings of Catholic saints watch as you sip the traditional Quechua coca tea.
It was so beautiful, and the service was so exceptional, it would be worth making another trip to Peru just to spend more time in Cusco.
