Staying in this hotel was a special experience because it had this palace feel. It was like a museum with so much artwork and architecture to enjoy. The location was perfect for a tourist, close to the main square and other attractions, restaurants and shops. The service was excellent and attentive. Breakfast was sumptuous. On our first night the room was nice but not very spacious. On our return from Machu Picchu we had an upgraded room which was much nicer and roomier. The memory of this hotel would last a long time.

I have been to cusco several times and stayed at the monastero , I read the reviews on trip advisor every time before I go. The hotel has Been taken over by star wood luxury collection.
As always I email the hotel before I leave the states with requests that I like, the Starwood answered promptly , and fulfilled my requests.
We arrived from the air port and check in was excellent, seated on a comfortable couch in the lobby while the front desk processed the check then escorted us to our room. The rooms were excellent , even though the windows were small ours had a beautiful view of the cathedral tower which had been built on the inka tempel of the sun. The room lacked a balcony but right across the hall was a 70 foot terrace overlooking cusco,
The hotel public ares are beautiful with period details of the 1500's ,master paintings , inka walls.
Very beautiful . The location excellent and the personal made you feel right at home, the breakfast was excellent ( included in the price), the room upkeep was excellent. My only complaint was the small bars of soap , though a body wash , shampoo and condition were excellent. The beds were very comfortable. All requests to housekeeping were fulfilled very quickly .over all compared to the monasterio the Starwood was a much better value and a much friendlier hotel. I would recommend this hotel to the picky traveler, my wife and I have traveled the world and would give this hotel a 8.5 on acomadotions, and a ten on value, a 10 on location, and a 9 on personal ( many employees spoke excellent english) we plan to stay here in the future. We will be leaving on tues the 8 of October ,and will have very fond memories of our stay in cusco, I hope your stay will be as pleasant


The monastero has a nicer court yard but thr rooms were not as nice
The staff and door men were excellent with directions

The hotel has a dark, medieval feel with all its antique furnishings. The breakfast was sumptuous with a buffet as well as made to order items. The staff was excellent and helpful. You are close to the main square and shopping. Wifi was not free, but every room had lovely robes and slippers for your comfort.

It's a really beautiful hotel, in a historic building, and has a very good location, in front of Plaza Santo Domingo, near Plaza de Armas. Very good service, kind employees, specially Jonatan and Josver, who attended us. Hotel can storage your luggage when you leave for Machhu Picchu, free of charge.

I've stayed at Starwood hotels and never had a better experience than at the Palacio del Inka hotel in Cusco, Peru! Rubit, Carol and Elmer were very attentive to our group of 44 Fun for Less guests. They delivered ice packs for weary travelers, oxygen to the rooms, and gave an outstanding performance in every respect. The restaurant was beyond five star quality! The chef met my individual requests for better cooked bacon, and offered the best pastries I've ever eaten at a hotel buffet. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this five star hotel to anyone traveling to Cusco.
The only problem I had was a bar charge that they promised to reverse but did not. I replaced the M&M's and coke I had eaten the night before. They have yet to rectify this.

Room Tip: Every room was clean and had a refrigerator bar.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for review.
It is satisfactory to know that you never had a better experience than at our Palacio del Inka Hotel, and of course thank you for your comments about the front desk staff and the buffet that you had. I will show your lines to our chef. However, I am concerned about the extra charge you had at the bar; I will investigate what fell through in the process, but we ensure it will not happen again.

I am quite impressed with the Palacio del Inka. They truly go above and beyond for platinum members. I wasn't used to such "white glove" treatment until I arrived at the Palacio. They welcome you with delicious coco tea and offered to store my luggage during my Machu Picchu trip.

They also provided a butler with superior service who hustled to take/give me my luggage before/after the trip. Didn't even charge for storage.

The gym is pretty decent with free water bottles (awesome) and apples.

What made me truly think that this SPG property deserves a 5 star rating is b/c of the service. Specifically, Carol M. was able to assist me with my charges at the end of the stay. There were a few discrepancies, and she was able to alleviate my worries quickly.

I'd definitely return to the hotel. A+ must-stay for Machu Picchu hikers!
