The priciest Hotel in Cusco

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 10, 2007

We didnt really think of coming here until we started mapping out a plan of our independant walking tour and we had San Blas on our list and the Museum Pre-colombiano. From there we noticed that we were near the Monastario Hotel. I read alot of interesting things about this place so we decided to check it out.
In 1592 the San Antonio Abad monastery was built on top of an Incan palace. In 1995 This place was converted to a luxury hotel. The location of this place is something that I really liked too. Although you are not too close to the Plaza de Armas its in the San Blas neighborhood and I loved this place.
There is also a restaurant here that appears to be in the "church area" of the monastery. Although I did find this place very beautiful it did feel alittle stuffy for me. The service seemed good but I couldnt say spectacular and this place is VERY EXPENSIVE!
The courtyards are elegantly manicured as you can see in the pictures we took and even though I didnt see the rooms I hear they are top notch.

Unique Quality: Something that really caught my attention was that it is said that this hotel pumps oxygen into the rooms directly through thier ventilation system. I thought that was interesting. It might not seem like a big deal but for some people that have alot of problems due to the altitude they might enjoy this.

La verdad es que no nos pudimos dar el lujazo de quedarnos en el hotel , 405$/noche tuvieron laculpa , pero si tienes que darteun paseo por la plaza de las Nazarenas y entrar a visitar las instalaciones , el claustro y su impresionante iglesia
Really we couldn´t give us the luxury of stay on it , 405$ per night were the responsibles , but if you have time to visit the Nazarenas square do not miss the hotel installations , the cloister and its impressive church

There are all levels of accomodations at this large facility. The four Presidential suites are luxurious. Remember that this was a monastery and many rooms are small and housed priests. Pay more and be assured of fine accomodations and superb service. Groups are often assigned to less desireable quarters. Their restuarants are excellent and the bar is a regal room. Check out the Chapel and the four cloisters, exquisite!

The front desk could improve (not all spoke understandable English) but my Spanish isn't great either. A negative was the doormen chatting and blocking the doorway. Otherwise the personnel were very helpful. Use the Guest relations desk for ANY special requests.

Directions: Behind the Cathedral in city center.

The Best in the City

This is probably the best hotel in all Peru! This beautiful hotel is in the former San Antonio Abad monastery, constructed in 1592 on the foundations of an Inca palace. It is, indeed, as much of a museum as a hotel. It even has its own 18th-century Escuela Cusqueña art collection!

Located on quiet Las Nazarenas square between the artsy San Blas district and the main square, the hotel hasseveral courtyards with stone arches; one is set up for lunch outdoors -- just gorgeous!

The rooms are perfectly decorated in both colonial and modern styles, again, with the large Cusqueña School paintings.

Unique Quality: Asd noted above, you will feel like you are in an actual museum -- simply stunning!

Directions: Calle Palacios -- Near The Plaza De Armas

The service and setting of this fantasic hotel are second to none anywhere on the planet. From original art work on the walls, to the courtyards, and enormous multi-story rooms, there is nowhere else one should stay if visiting cusco

Unique Quality: The History!

Top of the top. Monasterio is in a class by itself. Bring your wallet--not for the traveler on the cheap. Excellent meals, outstanding staff, fine location. They have it all. Highly recommended, if you have $400 to spare.

Unique Quality: Built in 1562, need I say more. The Gregorian chants over the sound system are at the same time eerie, and charming.

Hotel Monasterio is an old monastery that is now I would say the most beautiful hotel in Cusco. It was not in our price range, but for those of you who can afford it, I say: 'go for it!'
approx $200 USD per night for a double room
