My favorite hotel, ever? Probably! I rarely am overwhelmed by the beauty, service and style of a hotel as much as I was by Inkaterra La Casona. Its history is reflected by the fine decor and the very beautiful furniture that attracted my attention from the very fist step into this former monastery. It is luxury at its height. Attention is individualized bringing Incan design and colonial style to contemporary excellence. The rooms are very beautiful yet simple offering high quality beds and amenities. It is almost like your private (huge) house!
The location is ideal because you walk everywhere in Cusco and it is on a calm and charming square.
The staff was outstanding! Given the small number of guests I should not be surprised that the waiter on our second day of breakfast remembered what we asked for and actually adjusted the jams and bread on the table before our arrival accordingly- this is great service!
The restaurant was really good and I highly recommend eating at least one dinner at this hotel. Tea time is also a treat and offered with good cakes and tea. In the afternoon there is a gentle classical music that rises from the lobby area to the rooms and there is perfect harmony between the lieu, the court yard and the music chosen. Out of curiosity, I visited some of the other big hotels in Cusco and I felt so privileged to be at the Inkaterra La Casona. It was much more charming and exclusive than its top competitors so I was very happy with the choice. The bathroom (if you get one of the larger rooms on the second floor) is fantastic.
One minor comment: the plastic slippers were uncomfortable and almost irritating. Other than that, I loved this hotel. It sets the standard for excellence, not only in Peru, but internationally, very high.
