Our last stop for our 3 week tour of Peru was Cusco. In fact it was a double stop because first we visited Cusco and Sacred Valley and twe returned to Cusco after our visit to Machu Picchu. It was good planning to stay in total 6 nights in Palacio Nazarenas (first 4 nights and then 2 after our visit to Mach Picchu). We could not have selected a better place to stay in Cusco.
We had booked a junior suite but got upgraded to a master suite and the only description is : Fabulous.
From the moment you arrive with a welcome bouquet of flowers for the lady, to the moment you depart the service is friendly and impeccable.
We had left our luggage in the hotel for our short overnight stay at Machu Picchu, to find our luggage already in our room when we returned late in the evening from the train, it is these types of excellent service that adds to the feeling of well being.
Also the location in great to visit the center of Cusco, for shopping and to enjoy the local restaurants.
Another great orient-express experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Would the nuns in this converted 17th-century convent have approved of the pisco sour cocktail-making stations? Anything is possible, given the diverse incarnations of this contemporary urban retreat. Belmond Palacio Nazarenas was built on Inca foundations and became a palatial private home in the 1500s. It was owned by the conquistador Mancio Serra de Leguizamon—a warrior who is said to have gambled and lost the gold Inca image of the sun from the Coricancha temple. The Jesuits converted the building into a school in 1644, which itself became a convent in 1715. We’ve preserved all that’s most precious here: you’ll find original Inca stonework, colonial frescos and gold-framed paintings collected by the nuns. At the same time you’ll discover the best of the new world within our walls. We’ll look after you in the most elegant way possible, whether your idea of relaxing is taking a morning yoga class or an evening salsa lesson. ... more less
