We stayed two nights at the Hotel Monasterio in Cusco before traveling to Machu Picchu and were very happy with our visit. The hotel is a converted monastery, and is beautiful and welcoming. The staff and service is excellent and we were able to purchase our Peru Rail tickets in the hotel, without having to wait in line at the train station. We stayed in a junior suite and the room was perfect, with high ceilings and stairs that led to the 2nd floor bedroom with a king size bed. We paid extra to have the oxygen pumped into our room, but we did not notice any benefits. It is probably best to follow the advice for high altitude – drink plenty of liquids and take it easy the first couple days. We were happy we stayed in this hotel and will always have beautiful memories of our visit.
