Our small group arrived in Cusco a bit tired and feeling the effects of the high altitude. We were welcomed by the hotel manager and front desk staff and served tea in a lovely interior courtyard. before heading to our rooms. In the evening, when it gets cool, the fire pit in the courtyard is lit and the atmosphere is magical.
With spectacular common spaces, excellent on-site restaurant and well designed rooms, you feel in the lap of luxury. Our room had ultra-comfortable beds, great rain-shower and amenities. the housekeeping staff keep you supplied with complimentary water and little treats on a daily basis. The choice of food and service in the breakfast room was amazing. Fresh fruit smoothies, crepes or omelettes made to order and buffet selection were just what the doctor ordered to help you start your day in wonderful Cusco.
Food served in the hotel restaurant was delicious and the atmosphere/design was interesting and comfortable.
But the best attribute of this establishment is the staff. Everyone from the doorman, front-desk, management, house-keeping, restaurant personnel and breakfast room staff were very efficient and friendly. You really felt that they wanted you to have the best stay possible as they remembered previous requests and went out of their way to help.
