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.

We stopped by for a pre-dinner drink on our way to MAP Cafe (also great!). We were seated by the fireplace, where our server Freddy provided attentive service. We asked whether we could walk around, and Freddy offered to take us on a tour of this stunning property. He guided us through courtyard, the walkways, and the chapel, sharing the history of the monastery and allowing us to quietly and peacefully soak it all in. It’s a half an hour that we’ll always cherish of an amazing trip to Peru.

This wonderful hotel, with its fascinating history, superior service, very comfortable rooms, and ideal location two blocks from the Plaza de Armas in Cusco, is one of the finest in the world. I mentioned service, but the adjacent chapel is breathtaking and the rooms were befitting a 5 star hotel anywhere in the world. What a treat to stay there for a couple of days.

Went to Cusco in business but felt as if I was on vacation. The sraff and service provide was top notch. Wonderful stay, rooms are very comfortable, bed felt like sleeping on a cloud. The breakfast spread was delicious. Left to go to Machu Picchu for one night and left my luggage at the hotel until my return the following day.

The staff here is incredible. They were so helpful from our waiters, Max and Wilbur and Cairo to taking care of our luggage while we were trekking with Adventure Peru Treks to Jose Pilaries arranging for a city tour of Lima and reservations at a really really good restaurant while we waited for our 1 am flight back to the United States. Oh and did I mention the hotel itself is true remarkable. We will definitely come back.
