Our Thoughts!

Possibly the best hotel in Cusco? Well it is certainly up there setting the standards of Cusco hotels. We particularly like the open courtyards which add a sense of perspective to the building, and the front lobby bar which is both classy yet relaxing. One thing that is worth mentioning is that the rooms are actually quite small, as the building was originally a monastery not a hotel. Also, be prepared to dig deep as this room rates are not cheap.
