“Stunning gardens. Good range of options for vegetarians.”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

For 3 days this became our oasis. As it was our first stop at high altitude and we did suffer greatly from its terrible effects, this was the perfect place to be. The gardens are incredibly lush and gorgeous, colourful, and peaceful. The little church adds charm to the overall ambience. The outlook on all sides of the mountains surrounding the sacred valley are a joy. Whilst the rooms are indeed somewhat dark, owing to the wide verandahs of the hacienda style building, they are spacious enough and we had 2 king size and very comfortable beds. The bathroom may need a fan but it's easy enough to open the window. The meals at the restaurant were excellent. We ordered lunch the first day and it was delicious, well presented, and for me a vegetarian's bonanza. It can be quite difficult to find a good choice of vegetarian options but here there were so many I could easily have piled my plate sky high. I left one very happy vegetarian. There was a very bit of variety at breakfast compared to many hotels we have stayed at this trip. The restaurant staff were attentive and very helpful. Wifi could only be accessed in the foyer. My friend thought it was one of the nicest places she has ever stayed. I would definitely recommend if visiting the sacred valley.

The room was extremely small with a dungeon style lock and key. The breakfast buffet was adequate attended to by an disinterested wait staff. Being rated number one out of two hotels is hardly a recommendation.

What a wonderful setting in the "Sacred Valley" of the Incas. The grounds of this hotel are magnificent. The history of this property as an ex-convent, the quaint chapel & the tidy flower beds made this an ideal setting for our Machu Picchu experience. The staff were very friendly, helpful & us feel welcome. Our room was spacious, with a decor suitable to the area & extremely clean. The breakfast offered many foods selections. We ate our evening meals both nights in the restaurant. The service & food were excellent and the prices were very reasonable. My wife & I hope we have the opportunity to return here someday.

An old monastry with beautiful gardens, birds singing in the morning as a natural wake up call.
very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast has a very nice selection of food.

This is our second time in Peru, so we decided this time, to travel directly from Cusco to the Urubamba valley to catch some fresh air and oxygen... We had the hotel friendly driver Sabino , take us first thing in the morning to Ollantaytambo, to buy train tickets to Macchu pichu and then to visit the Inca ruins at Ollyatantambo, before all the tourist buses arrive.
We had a nice light, American style lunch at the corner main Plaza at La Esquina bakery cafe, they have on their menu Vegan, Gluten free,etc.and free WiFi, From there the driver took us to the Salt Mines and to Inca round ruins of Maras.

A delightful quiet hotel with plenty of character and local walks to explore. If you have a guide then ask him to take you to the near by Inca trail - if you don't ask at reception for directions. The trail is only a few hundred meters from the hotel and well worth an evening stroll up it. When you think you have gone far enough it is easier to walk back down to the hotel. It will get you in the mood for Machu Picchu. I would highly recomend this hotel as a change from the norm - enjoy.

A beautiful setting, surrounded by Mountains, lovely gardens with a small chapel in them, one of the best Breakfast layouts we saw in Peru, and nice quality evening meals, the bar was inexpensive, bottled water was reasonable, and reception had real flame gas fires and comfy chairs to relax in the evenings. The staff were lovely, the beds comfortable, plentiful supply of toiletries, a nice powerful shower over a deep bath, and satellite TV. Only the very picky could find fault, we certainly didnt!

A Spanish palace in the middle of Sacred Valley, far away from all noises and buzzles of daily life. The gardens were all lovingly tended and looked very colourful and peaceful.

The 2 of us were given a room on the ground floor that opened directly onto a quiet little courtyard. There were 1 king bed and 2 double beds, but only 1 chair for all ! No air exhaust in bathroom, hence the condensation was a bit of a problem.

Breakfast was basic but fresh. Dinner was ordinary too.

Good value if you only stop over for 1 or 2 night. Great place for meditation.
