We just got back from our honeymoon which started off with a 4 night stay at the Hotel Monasterio to get acclimated to the altitude before starting the hike on the Inca trail. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Upon check in, we were greeted with a cup of coca tea to help alleviate our altitude sickness before we retired to our hotel room which had additional oxygen pumped in to help you forth acclimate. This hotel is all about service, service, service and it shows. Everything was perfect. The Hotel manager even sent us a fabulous bottle of champagne our first night to celebrate the beginning of our honeymoon trip. Although we never ate at the hotel’s main restaurant for dinner, the plentiful breakfast buffet was fantastic every morning. We had our choice of multiple fruits, meats, cheeses, pastries and various breads along with eggs, tamales, sausages, bacon and of course omelets made to order. Cusco is not a huge sprawling metropolis, so the hotel was fairly centrally located and in a great area of town (aka close to lots of shopping girls) . They have done a fantastic job designing the hotel so that it would have all the modern amenities but still keep the feeling and charm of its’ previous life as a the Peruvian monastery (tip…if you listen closely in the hallways and in the main courtyard you can hear a recording of Gregorian chanting)
Everything was just perfect and after starting the honeymoon there it was hard for any other hotel the rest of the trip to even compare! I highly recommend it!
