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.

Reviews for Belmond Hotel Monasterio
The expectations were high, but were all met. In an old monastery in the city center, near to everything. Two nice and large cloisters. Room modern ( with additional oxygen on demand for 30 usd, just in case). Impeccable and helpful service, very good breakfast. Prices accordingly on the higher side (restaurants possibly overpriced, but a couple of very good restaurants are just across the street)

This is a great location to visit. The hotel is well located in the historic centre. The courtyards and rooms are wonderful. Staff are helpful. The negative - there is so much to do that we didn't need a hotel of this price as we used it for breakfast (which opened very early to allow us to go on our tours) and then got back late to sleep.

We enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel. It's so unique and steeped in Inca history. The rooms are all different since it was originally a monastery and converted to a hotel around 1965. This is a first class hotel with great food and wonderful staff. The location is great for exploring Cusco on your own. Their buffet breakfasts have everything you could ever want.

Well, you are paying for the best and you certainly get it here. As one of the staff said in response to a question "Sir, everything is possible here..." The welcome and check-in was prefect, being carried out in the beautiful lounge. We had a lovely lunch in the courtyard and an acceptable dinner in the main restaurant on Opera night. The breakfast was first rate with many hot and cold options.The room was enormous, with a large king bed, a nice shower/toilet and a spacious closet. The multiple courtyards were lovely and having a drink by the fire in the central cloister was enchanting. Do not miss the chapel, which is decorated in the same style as the famous churches nearby. The other great advantage is its location. It is across the street from the precolumbian museum (which has a fine restaurant) and a short (downhill walk) to the Inca Museum, the cathedral and Plaza de Armas. My only complaint was beyond the hotels control. We stayed on Santanna day, a big holiday there and the people started lighting firecrackers at 2 am and did not stop until 7am. Worse, they amplified them by rolling a big drum and dropping the firecrackers inside. I think everyone in the hotel was up all night. We were told that the hotel called the police, but they refused to stop the festivities as these were only firecrackers... So, nothing much they could do. I guess getting a quiet night's sleep on the one evening was the only thing impossible at this hotel, otherwise it was magical.

I've stayed at the Belmond hotel brand all around the world and their location in Cusco did not disappoint. We were privileged enough to have stayed in the Royal Suite, which was incredible. Private courtyard and patio, separate sitting room, gorgeous garden view from tall windows, soaking tub, dual vanities --- the works. The hotel property is a former monastery with beautiful artwork and incredible grounds. Service is absolutely top-notch. Breakfast is amazing. Location is smack dab in city center, just short 5 min stroll from the town square.
