I stayed here just 2 nights as part of a tour. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer.
My deluxe room was huge. Bearing in mind it is a former monestary, I assumed the rooms would be small, but not at all. Very spacious with lovely furniture. I had two windows, one overlooked the beautiful courtyard and the other overlooked Cusco city. All the detail in the room was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable also and the room seemed to shut out any outdoor noise, which aided peaceful sleep.
The service in this hotel was excellent. The guy who showed me to my room took time to explain everything that I needed to know. The little extra touches on the service were very much appreciated, such as providing me with an adaptor as the one I had packed didn't work. The products in the bathroom are lovely too!
I read somewhere that the breakfast here is the best breakfast in South America. I do not dispute that. The buffet breakfast and additional options from the menu were more than substantial. Everything was of a very high quality also. The breakfast location was lovely, with views overlooking the courtyard.
The hotel's location could not be better. You were just a couple of minutes' walk from the majority of the tourist attractions and top restaurants in Cusco. I chose to eat lunches and evening meals away from the hotel as I did notice the dining options for lunch and dinner were not cheap and you could get comparable quality elsewhere.
The lobby/bar was stunning. Lovely atmosphere here in the evenings with live bands playing.
I now just have to find an excuse to go back to Cusco just to stay at this hotel again.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
