Our tour group arrived in the early evening and entered the hotel, not through the regular lobby entrance, but rather, through a separate section which resembled a church altar. What an entrance! The hotel has two connecting rectangular sections, each with a plaza, one with a wonderful, old tree in its center, probably a landmark of some type. Apparently, some of the rooms at The Monasterio have oxygen piped in - my wife and I had a regular room without the oxygen. The room we had was a bit on the small side but still very clean and comfortable. We were on the second floor, and there was some "huffing and puffing" before reaching our rooms due to the thinner air. The hotel restaurant was fantastic with a selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts that would make your mouth water. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding, and there was a guitarist and a flutist playing in the background during the dinner. Very nice! The location of the hotel was such that most downtown locations could be reached easily by foot. The Cathedral area in the Plaza de Armas was a couple of short blocks away where shops, restaurants, and sights were easily available. We really enjoyed our stay at the Monasterio.
