The hotel is gorgeous and comfortable. Only a few rooms, so there is no big crowd. The rooms are large and bathrooms are modern. An easy walk to the Cusco Square. A museum next door.
This place is right across from the Monastery Hotel which costs much more. You get the same experience because the hotel layout and concept is similar. Food and servise are top notch.
A very comfortable bed after a long day of walking.
This was a wise and memorable choice.

Room Tip: Any room. Suites are great.

Our family stayed two nights at the Inkaterra La Casona in Cuzco in August 2013. An Amazing Place! A house from the 17th Century that has been carefully turned into the most charming boutique hotel that you could ever imagine. This is by far the most exquisite small luxury hotel that we have ever stayed at. A lot of the old building details and furniture have been kept. The most luxurious beds. Charming fireplaces in the bedrooms. Superb bathrooms with all modern facilitities and details in an Century old setting.
The hotel is situated two blocks from the city centre. Walking distance to all the Cuzco historical sites.
Really professional and superfriendly staff. Excellent and truly Amazing cleaning of the rooms. Really good breakfast and dinner.
It can not possibly be better!!!

With the Rolling Stones front man reportedly having made this his Cusco base, you can be pretty sure that it will meet your requirements. Excellent service from attentive staff, in the best traditions of understated luxury. Nothing is too much for them to do for you. They will light the fire in your personal open fire place in your room and make you feel totally at home. Winter nights in cusco can be cold, but Casona will make you feel cosy and well looked after. Excellent breakfast service and minibar are all included. If you are doing a tour of he region and returning to cusco, the hotel will look after any excess baggage and have any laundry waiting for you on our return.

Totally flawless hotel. You cannot hope to find better in cusco...and maybe nowhere else either.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at our property.

La Casona provides the privileged exposure to Cusco’s hybrid history and the secrets surrounding its majestic past.

Centrally located on the original Inca settlement near Cusco’s present-day main square, Inkaterra La Casona offers walking access to lovely streets where guests can enjoy the perspective, comfort and exclusivity of those who lived in the manor during four centuries.

Thank you for staying at Inkaterra La Casona!

I stayed at La Casona as part of a trip to Peru where I also stayed at 2 other Inkaterra properties (Machu Picchu and Puerto Maldonado). All 3 of the properties were wonderful, but this one definitely blew me away. It is an amazing property that has been renovated to give you all the modern amenities, but done so in a way that pays tribute to the history of the building. All of the furnishings and decorations are super luxurious without being fussy. Breakfast was included in our rate, and it was delicious. There are plenty of cold buffet items and they will make you entrees to order.

The best part of the hotel were the special little touches from the staff. We stayed in September when it was rather chilly at night. Upon returning to our room after dinner, we would find a fire already lit in the fireplace and hot water bottles under the sheets. What a wonderful surprise that was! It is definitely more of a splurge as compared to the hotels in the area, but you really felt that this was worth every penny -- and that's not something you can say about every luxury accomodation.

La Casona really deserves to be a Relais & Chateaux. Great location, excelent service, amazing (only 11) rooms. The difference is in the details.
Much more than expected.
Hope staying there again, soon!

Have stayed at many luxury hotels but this one stands head and shoulders above the majority. It is simply sublime. From the moment you arrive, you'll be charmed and bowled over by the warmth of the welcome, the kindness of the staff and the exquisite beauty of the place itself. It is just stunning. The rooms are an absolute delight - spacious, tastefully decorated with large, gorgeous bathrooms. The courtyard is divine and so peaceful with little benches and chairs with rugs positioned around it for you to simply sit and reflect. Breakfast here is just perfect - everything has been thoughtfully put together and the service is superb. Fantastic poached eggs! I can't find enough superlatives to describe Inkaterra and wish we had been able to stay longer. If you're going to Cusco, you have to stay here. Treat yourself - it's worth it.

Room Tip: I am sure all of the rooms are as special as each other. We had patio suites - ground floor.

La Casona is the PERFECT hotel. I can honestly say there is nothing that needs improvement. From the time you enter this beautiful building, which is like visiting a friend's home, to having cocktails by the fireplace in the lobby (more like a living room) to enjoying a lovely breakfast you will be swept up in it's beauty.
The rooms are large and beautifully decorated and the bathrooms are a dream. The staff could not be lovelier or anymore accommodating...it is perfection!
