“Fairytale hotel”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

This is the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed at. You feel as if you are in a picturesque fairytale, with the breathtaking courtyard and historical styled rooms. The cleanliness is immaculate, the service is outstanding and the breakfast is delicious. I would definitely recommend this hotel and if I ever return to Cusco I look forward to staying there again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at the Casa Cartagena. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Our rooms were beautifully appointed, overlooking the courtyard. Delicious breakfasts with many food choices were available. It was fun to take part in cooking demonstrations in the evening. After a busy day of viewing tourist hot spots, it was so nice to relax in the elegant hot tub. At the spa we had our best massages ever! This boutique hotel is highly recommended.

This hotel is heaven. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and comfortable. You feel safe and well looked-after. Fantastic service, grounds, and food and the spa is just the icing on the cake. You can't go wrong with this choice and it would be amazing for a special occasion like milestone birthday, wedding or anniversary. Or to recover after the Inca Trail! Treat yourself!

Room Tip: I saw a few of the rooms as we were there with friends. The suite is totally amazing but all the reg...

This is a lovely hotel, located in a fully restored beautiful old building with a very nice interior patio. The rooms are large, modern, completely up to date and perfectly clean. We stayed at Casa Cartagena both before and after our one night trip to Machu Picchu. Highly recommended.

This is the place to be in Cusco.. We did not have to go to a big hotel.
Casa Cartagena was the right place to go after MPichu. The rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet offered a variety of fruits and pastries. The owner is always around the premises making sure the place is running smothly. I was delighted to be there for three days after MaPichu

Room Tip: The people at the front desk were fantastic. The presidential suit was amazing. The owner of the hot...

We stayed at Casa Cartagena both before and after traveling to Machu Picchu and really loved it. The rooms and bathrooms are huge with a modern decor and oxygen enrichment system is available to help with the high altitude. The food served at breakfast is varied and very good. The service at the front desk and the restaurant was really fantastic. On two occasions when we either left very early in the morning or arrived late at night the staff was extremely accommodating and made sure we had food available/to take with us and had our rooms ready with the proper suitcases placed in each one (traveled as a family of 4 in 2 rooms and stored our luggage at the hotel while staying overnight in Machu Picchu)

I'm sorry I can't agree with everyone else. The decor in the bedroom-green and white walls and red carpet was not to my taste. There was a strange assortment of breakfast food, but the omelets were good. Most of the staff were helpful. Had a great massage at the spa. Don't know if I would return.
