A fantastic hotel in a fantastic city.
A real blow you away place
The master suites were huge and spectacular and much much better than standard rooms.
Awesome buffet breakfast and the spa pool was very welcome after the Inca trail

Room Tip: We had two master suites in main building and they were spectacular and well worth upgrade

It was out of season when we were there, hotel is charming with a wonderful courtyard. Room was spacious and well appointed. The breakfast staff were very friendly and offered many suggestions on places to see. Breakfast buffet was full of choices and eggs cooked anyway you wanted them. The hotel is well located and easy walking distance to everything.
We would definitely go back and would highly recommend this to anyone staying in Cusco

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was clean, spacious, comfortable and beautiful. The location is perfect (just a block off the main plaza) and the staff was amazing! We felt like we were staying with friends. The breakfast was delicious and we even got a mini-tour of the historical photos lining the walls. We got in late one night, during a rainstorm, so the front desk sent up a pot of tea on the house. We would definitely stay at this property again.

Tucked away behind stone walls, this stellar hotel is a one of a kind retreat that will surely impress. Beautiful architecture and grounds, well appointed and spacious rooms...and service that was top notch! It's the perfect place to unwind at the end of a day spent exploring. And the food was exceptional. In all my travels throughout Asia, Europe and the America's, this place ranks right at the top. I can't wait to go back!

I have stayed at this hotel twice, and will do so again.

The Casa Caragena is such a unique experience. Once walking through the doors from the narrow cobblestone street, one is greeted by a warm, inviting, modern atmosphere in a building that oozes history and stories.

The staff are incredible. Inviting, friendly and incredibly focussed on making everyone's experience a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Each room is unique, and tells it's own story. The courtyard and common areas offer countless places to sit, relax and chat with friends or find stillness by yourself.

The rooms are distributed symmetrically along a spacious patio of your dreams where time is suspended.
