I'll start off by saying I wasn't in favor of staying at the Monasterio during our visit to Cusco. I thought we could find a nice hotel that wouldn't be as expensive. But my wife really wanted to stay at the Monasterio, so I gave in and we stayed there for five nights during our recent visit.
I will freely admit that I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. It is a beautiful hotel with an interesting history. The service was impeccable, the staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. I was very impressed with them. The check in process was the smoothest I've ever experienced. After we arrived we were seated in the lobby, given coca tea and they took care of the check in. We went to have breakfast and when we returned our bags were in our room. I discovered that I like being spoiled like that.
I will also mention that we thought the location of the hotel was perfect, just a few blocks from the Plaza de Armas and many other sites in Cusco. We ate breakfast in the hotel every morning and we both thought the buffet was great. We didn't get a chance to eat dinner in the restaurant, but they had a nice menu. There are several good restaurants within a block of the hotel.
I highly recommend this hotel, it was a real pleasure staying there.
