Belmond Hotel Monasterio

Originally built in 1592 on the site of the Inca Amaru Kuala Palace, the building was a monastery up until 1995, when it was converted into a hotel.

Ollie and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

This Belmond property oozes ambience, taking full advantage of its unique history, and is one of the most luxurious options in Cusco. Rooms are full of character due to the historic nature of the building and the service is excellent. As with many of the hotels coca tea is complimentary to assist with the altitude, and oxygen can be provided on request. The hotel is nicely situated a short walk from the Main Square, or Plaza de Armas.

Why we love it

Chanting music is played as you come down to breakfast, such that you almost expect to run into a group of monks on their way to prayer.
