"Historical property in a great location"
Stayed here two nights. Room very comfortable and quite large. No view though. Very old property but modern facilities. Didn't eat in the restaurant but had room service and it was very good. Very good checkin after a long drive was the Sacred Valley to Cusco as the trains had stopped going to Cusco.
From The moment you arrive it feels majestic. Warm welcoming . We arrived extremely Late and tired from Machu Picchu and were received by warm towels and tea as we were registered . Room that we requested was for three and oxygenize to adjust to the altitude which is very important! Great spacious and decorated amazingly. All the amenities of a 5 star. The hotel is absolutely beautiful , courtyard for breakfast or tea a must Walk and discover its history art work and The chapel a do not miss! Service outstanding Location is perfect walking distance to all.It is expensive but worth every penny. Cuzco is so beautiful and the Belmond Monasterio makes it even more majestic.
This hotel is the most amazing I have ever stayed in. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights as part of a post cruise trip after sailing around The Galapagos Islands. We stayed for 2 nights in The Sacred Valley and arrived at this beautiful hotel nestled in Cusco after a train journey on The Bingham train after a day at Macchu Piccu. What a jewel in the crown! The accommodation is spotlessly clean and very comfortable (not overly spacious) as this was previously a monastery. It has been tastefully renovated and is full of charm. The breakfasts and dinners were brilliant as were the attentive staff. Opera at dinner was an unusual addition to the fabulous evening meal. Well worth splashing out and paying a visit to this outstanding hotel in this very special country.
"Comfortable yet elegant"
Not only are the people extremely accommodating and friendly, the hotel is beautiful and historical. Each room has oxygen circulating to help everyone acclimate to the high elevation. A pisco sour by the roaring fire is a wonderful end of the day. In addition, the morning trip to the market before our cooking class was informative and fun. Arnold the chef and Erik our translator took us through the many aisles of fruits and veg, meat and fish, and artisan products. Once we chose our ingredients, we participated in cooking ceviche, beef and dessert that were all local recipes. Truly a wonderful experience for our family including two adult children. Only positive accolades about this property and its staff
"Prepare for fabulous!"
My daughter and I spent 6 days at the Monastery and loved every moment. Walking the corridors around the cloister garden, you can imagine the hooded monks walking silently to and fro. Being a former monastery, the hotel has its own attached chapel which is open to guests at all times -even when the street door is barred. Unlike other churches, you can take pictures and admire its 22K gold leaf decorations close up - a dazzling and impressive sight. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a wonderful walk-in shower in the bathroom. Oxygen is piped into the room to help travelers acclimate to the high altitude.The ambiance was all Spanish Grandee - plush, quiet, dark woods and plump cushions. The two restaurants served wonderful food - the sunny breakfast room with its enormous buffet plus made-to-order omelets and waffles, and the elegant dining room where there waiters serve everything with a flourish and where you are offered a small chef's treat before dinner. The Courtyard in the center of the cloister is filled with tables & chairs and umbrellas which can be moved to shield one from the sun. Every evening, a fit pit is brought out and lit to ward off chill and create a warm ambiance. Food and beverages, including breakfast, can be served to you in the courtyard. The staff is very helpful and ready to meet your every need and there is even an opera concert on site one or two nights a week. The location is very convenient - about 4 blocks from Plaza des Armes, convenient to same-day laundries, small grocery stores, souvenir shops and some excellent fine jewelry stores.
