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 stayed at the Hotel Monasterio after trekking the Inca Trail, and it was the perfect place to relax and recover. We ere upgraded to a suite because of booking via Amex Platinum. The room was long and skinny but it had a living room area, a balcony, and a lovely bathroom in addition to the very comfortable bedroom. The decor is lovely and understated- all in the Colonial Spanish style of the structure. Gregorian chants play in the stairways and hallways which add to the lovely atmosphere. The breakfast buffet was extensive and the service was very friendly and efficient.

This hotel had it all. When you arrive they greet you and offer tea at a lovely leather table while you check in. The court yard has blooming beautiful flowers an great service for a outside meal. The good at breakfast and dinner was great! The best hotel restaurant of our 2 week trip. The rooms were perfect with all the amenities you would expect in the US but we were in Peru. Don't miss staying here if you visit Cusco it is a real gem.

Stayed in this spectacular building for 2 nights as part of a Celebrity Xpedition "Micchu Picchu add-on". This old monestry is in itself quite a mind-blowing building, even having its own beautiful chapel. The peaceful ambience around the place is very noticeable from the moment you enter. The rooms themselves are very well maintained, if a little small. The adjoining wall between us and the next room was thin enough for us to hear their tv - even when it was eventually turned down following a 1am phone call to the front desk. Some fellow guests can be so inconsiderate. We were slightly disappointed with the service in the general restaurant - too much fussing, not enough accuracy! Just the little things missing from what we would expect from this expensive place. That said the staff were always pleasant in all areas. The lobby bar was slightly over-priced compared to other places we had visited during this tour. The hotel is ideally positioned very close to the main square which is a great place to visit. The highlight of the two days was eating breakfast at 7am on the last morning outside in the sunshine with a recording of "morning prayers" being quietly sung through the PA. Absolutely delightful.

This hotel offers unsurpassable luxury and personal service. For a very special experience, make plans to stay here! Don't miss the opera dinners and the wonderful music in the lobby bar. And, by all means, enjoy breakfast in the courtyard as you listen to soothing Gregorian chants!

What more can be said of Monasterio which had not been said. The superlatives, the raves, it's all quite true. I would only add a little episode at breakfast which would highlight the superb service by their staff and their attention to detail. We had a french toast which tasted a bit flat so it was left unfinished. A waiter asked if we didn't like it and we recounted the story. He apologised profusely and asked if we would like another but we were full and declined. We've had worse before and so we didn't think much about a bad french toast. But wait, there's more. On the next day, much to our surpise, the manager came and apologised again for the french toast and asked for a post-mortem. We thought uh-oh, we don't want the chef to be in trouble because it really wasn't an issue with us. He persuaded us to have the french toast again which we did, and of course it was perfect (were you expecting otherwise huh?). Our party of course had many imaginary conversations that the chef must be so upset that somebody actually complained about his french toast, how dare! In fact, everything we had at breakfast was great (best breakfast ever), tea, cakes and ice-cream were excellent too (so good that a non-coffee drinker praised the coffee ice-cream) and the pillow, well I needn't say more. Clearly we loved our stay there. It is the people that makes a hotel great, many kudos to the staff!
