We spent a total of three nights at this property during our trip to Peru. It was, in a word, luxurious. La Casona probably ranks as one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The hotel is richly appointed in both the public areas and in each of the rooms. Staff is extremely attentive and makes every effort to meet all of your needs during your stay. This is a unique property in that it is run like a private hacienda. There is little marking the hotel from the exterior and you must knock on heave wooden doors in order to enter the property. During our first stay, we had a room in the back of the courtyard - facing the front entry. It was very quiet. Our second room was on the second level and had a window opening to one of the streets and we heard quite a bit of street noise during the night. Both rooms had features such as a wood-burning fireplace, heated towel racks, deep tubs, etc. The breakfast was very nice - a buffet-style continental breakfast, with hot items to order. Only I ate dinner at the restaurant, and found that it was very good. My only comment about the restaurant is that it is extremely formal. We loved Cusco but remember that it is at high altitude and there can be some ramifications. We noted that a lot of the guests seemed to suffer from altitude sickness. The hotel staff was very attentive to these issues. Inkaterra does an amazing job yet again!
