Belmond Hotel Monasterio in Cusco, Peru

Voted the Best Hotel in South America by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler, Belmond Hotel Monasterio deserves every accolade that comes its way. Built in the 16th century as a monastery on Inca foundations, this cloistered compound is located amid the historic splendor of Cusco, Peru. Most notably, the hotel serves as an ideal base for exploring the mystical ruins of Machu Picchu. Much of the original architecture of Belmond Hotel Monasterio remains intact, paying homage to its original seminarian occupants. In keeping with its intended purpose, the rooms and suites feature a mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings, with a gallery of religious art gracing the walls. Because of the high elevation, 11,000 feet above sea level, many of the rooms are equipped with an oxygen supplementation system for your added comfort.

Discover each room, hallway, and passage at the hotel, where every undiscovered nook seems to hold legendary secrets. Abutting the main square and courtyard is Illariy Restaurant, a dining retreat adorned with original paintings and art that serves distinctive Peruvian and international cuisine. Morning meals are taken in El Tupay Restaurant, and mixologists at the Lobby Bar are skilled at creating refreshing libations with the shake of a wrist. And if you are in the mood for a more private experience, simply ring for room service round-the-clock. Just a few blocks from Cusco's central square with the cathedral and many prominent museums, Belmond Hotel Monasterio provides an idyllic place to discover everything the region has to offer.

Our Room was located way in the back corner of the Property, I liked that in itself, and it was very large! You could open up some shutters and look down on the quiet narrow street below. The room itself is hard to describe but the walls were plaster over old timbers, really kool looking and Very quiet! The bed may have been the most comfortable I have ever slept on, the sheets must have an astronomical thread count, the Shower and Bath was masterful. The Hotel Grounds are a masterpiece, the restaurant maybe the best in Cusco. In the Morning you hear the Chanting of the Monks in the Chapel, the food and service is beyond belief. The Lounge is very inviting and has a great selection. Service throughout the property is the best! I have come to expect this attention to the most minute detail from Belmond, If you ever get the chance to stay here, you will be glad you did!

Although I didn’t stay here, I wanted to write a review because they were so very welcoming to me as a non hotel guest. This incredible building, rich with Incan and Spanish history, is worth checking out just for the cathedral and architectural details. I was getting tired, walking the lovely stairs of San Blas with friends. We were casually dressed, and my friend had fallen and was looking for a place to rest. I spied this beautiful display of tea with terra cotta cups, the sun positively glowing on them. I ventured inside, flip flops askew, and was greeted as warmly as if I was Angelina Jolie. I asked about the tea, and they offered all of us some, and a seat. We reclined in beautiful rich leather chairs, and I admired the art work, while my friends explored the charming courtyard. After being hounded all day for money for the smallest things, here we were being treated like royalty and were not even asked to pay. (I offered) So thank you staff, for being so gracious, and sharing this luxury hotel site with regular folks like us!

The Belmond Monasterio was a first class hotel. The breakfast, which is included in the rate, was excellent. From the doormen, to the reception staff, to the restaurant waiters and waitresses, to the cleaning staff, they were all very friendly and very polite. I can't say anything negative about the Belmond Monasterio. Just stay there and enjoy.
