We traveled with a group of about 30 people, arriving in Cusco after days of exhausting climbs at Machu Picchu. The hotel staff was waiting for our group in the chapel, with all the welcome packages assembled, and bellmen waiting to take our luggage from the bus directly to the rooms. It was absolutely effortless and the welcome staff made us feel so good. They offered coca tea, water, and whatever else we wanted. The rooms were beyond beautiful and perfectly appointed (and even a complementary shoe shine). Although we were just above a busy street, the inside wooden shutters on the windows were so sound-absorbing we could hear no noise at all; in the morning, it was fun to open the shutters and hear the city coming alive. The bar was so relaxing and comfortable, and was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The restaurant has to be experienced. It was perfect in every way: from the personnel, to the decor, to the fabulous food. Everything about Hotel Monasterio was superb. The people made us feel like a king. On top of all that, it is ideally located just behind one of the two huge cathedrals that face Cusco's beautiful city square. I can't think of anything to suggest; it is perfect!
