Inkaterra La Casona Relais & Chateaux
Ranked #2 of 171 Hotels in Cusco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We had booked for 4 nights in this hotel but due to a strike which meant that we had to return earlier than planned from Machu Picchu actually stayed for 5 nights. This hotel is small with only 11 rooms and was a 16th century manor house. It is quite unlike other hotels in that there is no reception and you knock on the wooden door to gain entry. There was always someone there ready to open the door instantly you knocked no matter what time you got back to the hotel. The rooms are set around a courtyard and the bathrooms are enormous.

It is impossible to think of a bad thing to say about this hotel, the staff were exceptional, breakfast and afternoon tea were well presented and the location is perfect, an easy walk into the main areas of Cusco and also San Blas. We stayed 3 nights and then went onto the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu and were then due to return for a further night before travelling to the Amazon. However due to a strike we had to get the train back to Cusco a day early and were so pleased to be able to spend an extra day at this fantastic hotel. As it is small it is necessary to book early to avoid disappointment but definitely the only place to stay as far as we were concerned.

A marvellous small hotel in a great location.
We (two couples and a single) stayed three nights in this hotel.
The rooms were very comfortable with beautiful bathrooms. Very deep baths which were hard to resist after a day of sightseeing.
A small central courtyard and a beautifully maintained old building.
Excellent buffet breakfast.
Service was attentive and excellent.
Perfect.

The hotel is gorgeous and comfortable. Only a few rooms, so there is no big crowd. The rooms are large and bathrooms are modern. An easy walk to the Cusco Square. A museum next door.
This place is right across from the Monastery Hotel which costs much more. You get the same experience because the hotel layout and concept is similar. Food and servise are top notch.
A very comfortable bed after a long day of walking.
This was a wise and memorable choice.

Room Tip: Any room. Suites are great.

Our family stayed two nights at the Inkaterra La Casona in Cuzco in August 2013. An Amazing Place! A house from the 17th Century that has been carefully turned into the most charming boutique hotel that you could ever imagine. This is by far the most exquisite small luxury hotel that we have ever stayed at. A lot of the old building details and furniture have been kept. The most luxurious beds. Charming fireplaces in the bedrooms. Superb bathrooms with all modern facilitities and details in an Century old setting.
The hotel is situated two blocks from the city centre. Walking distance to all the Cuzco historical sites.
Really professional and superfriendly staff. Excellent and truly Amazing cleaning of the rooms. Really good breakfast and dinner.
It can not possibly be better!!!

With the Rolling Stones front man reportedly having made this his Cusco base, you can be pretty sure that it will meet your requirements. Excellent service from attentive staff, in the best traditions of understated luxury. Nothing is too much for them to do for you. They will light the fire in your personal open fire place in your room and make you feel totally at home. Winter nights in cusco can be cold, but Casona will make you feel cosy and well looked after. Excellent breakfast service and minibar are all included. If you are doing a tour of he region and returning to cusco, the hotel will look after any excess baggage and have any laundry waiting for you on our return.

Totally flawless hotel. You cannot hope to find better in cusco...and maybe nowhere else either.

I stayed at La Casona as part of a trip to Peru where I also stayed at 2 other Inkaterra properties (Machu Picchu and Puerto Maldonado). All 3 of the properties were wonderful, but this one definitely blew me away. It is an amazing property that has been renovated to give you all the modern amenities, but done so in a way that pays tribute to the history of the building. All of the furnishings and decorations are super luxurious without being fussy. Breakfast was included in our rate, and it was delicious. There are plenty of cold buffet items and they will make you entrees to order.

The best part of the hotel were the special little touches from the staff. We stayed in September when it was rather chilly at night. Upon returning to our room after dinner, we would find a fire already lit in the fireplace and hot water bottles under the sheets. What a wonderful surprise that was! It is definitely more of a splurge as compared to the hotels in the area, but you really felt that this was worth every penny -- and that's not something you can say about every luxury accomodation.

La Casona really deserves to be a Relais & Chateaux. Great location, excelent service, amazing (only 11) rooms. The difference is in the details.
Much more than expected.
Hope staying there again, soon!
