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
Everything was wonderful.. food.service... just be certain you don't get a room with the bathroom downstairs and bed in a loft... at that altitude it kills ya. F The food looked great but we had no appetite and were sick for two days from altitude.

I booked this hotel because me and my husband are into art history and the place looked gorgeous. Indeed it is - the chapel is atunning and there are beautiful items all around the grounds. As youngish New Yorkers I'd have to say the place is a little fussy. You are never left alone by staff and there is no common space just to chill in where you aren't expected to be eating or drinking. Rooms are tasteful but small given it's an old monastery. We found Palacio del Inka to be a more enjoyable experience, but really did enjoy our stay here. Concierge is great. Location is perfect. Breakfast is great too, but they never leave you alone. Good service is often invisible and this place feels a little forced.
The rooms were first class, the service was excellent, and the beds were comfortable. We had a nice little patio to relax, the staff was super helpful when I was sick, and the food that I did eat was top notch.

This is really a great hotel. Trust all the review that say nothing but great things. It's a beautiful building from the 1700's I think. Stone everywhere, old artwork. We were there celebrating a special occasion and they sent up a cake and wrote us a nice message. Would definitely stay here again if I'm back in cusco.

The service in this hotel is excellent. I travelled with a friend who got altitude sickness. The hotel was able to administer oxygen at 6 a.m. in the morning ... we called Room Service numerous times. They had to make the trip numerous times (with tea, breakfast, lunch ... more tea, oxygen tank) all within a very short space of time. Every time --- Carmen showed up at our door with a smile and a very kind word and disposition. When you're ill in a foreign country this type of attention and care from the hotel staff is a very real comfort. Other staff knew as well ... and I can't extend my gratitude for the hotel's care and attention enough. The hotel itself is historic and it is lovely to sit in their courtyard shaded by a 100+ year old tree ... fascinating. There have a well stocked hotel shop and Ilaria as well - with the most helpful staff. I cannot recommend this hotel enough --- it is an experience in itself.
