Id like to make a short review about the place as it has loads of good reviews already.
I remember spending hours on my 2 floors room looking at a frame of one of the dozen of pictures around the room. The frame was just at the same time crazy and looking extremely expensive and surely ASTONISHING! I only stay one night at the Monasterio (bit of a shame), but from what i saw, the hotel was just like the frame i spent hours staring at.
Lets see the negative points, as there are just a few:
- Needless to say, the price is insane. (perhaps thats what called my attention)
- Beautiful breakfast overlooking the amazing garden. All very glamourous and luxurious, however I felt that they forgot to put some food in it. For the price we paid, I was expecting more of the food, which was average. Not bad, just not as amazing as the hotel.
- On the arrival they couldnt find our reservation. Thats the kind of thing you DO NOT want to hear after paying the crazy amount of money for the night and loooooong 6 hours on the train/taxi from Aguas Calientes. (that was a long day!)
Appart from those mentioned items, the place is a relic. I have never seen anywhere quite as similar to it (not that i havent search!).
