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
We spent a week in peru.all of it in the hands of Belmond. We stayed at the belmond miraflores,the belmond monasterio in cusco and we took the Hiram bingham train roundtrip to machu pichu. The monasterio was amazing in all respects. We had breakfast every morning in the garden around the fountain. We were upgraded to one of the presidential suites through platinum amex and enjoyed loads of space and beautiful surroundings. On certain nights they offer opera in their restaurant with a tenor and a soprano along with a small orchestra and we enjoyed every minute of it. The staff were all incredibly well trained friendly and hospitable..if I didn't know I would swear the word "no" is not in their vocabulary. I already wrote a separate review for the belmond miraflores and as far as the train goes..splurge a little and at least take it one way! Probably outbound is the way to go because you get your machu pichu tour included. We were supposed to return on the vistadome but upgraded to the Hiram bingham. We had had such a wonderful trip, figured we should just finish it the right way! It's worth noting that on the way home the bar car gets really animated. We had a blast with the band! Parting is such sweet sorrow but we have the most amazing pictures and memories. Thank you belmond!
The Monasterio hotel, Cusco, is a luxurious and unique paradise with outstanding service and a captivating atmosphere. Breakfast was a real highlight, with a magnificent choice of cooked and/or cold 'treats', the experience enhanced by eating amid fountains, cloisters and a serene sense of 'history'.Our room was elegant, restful and extremely comfortable. The hotel is also perfectly located, a short walk from the vibrant heart of the city. It's a long flight to Peru, but hotels like this make the long haul worth it!

We stayed two nights in May. This 16th century ex-monetary has been renovated to a high level of luxury without sacrificing its cloistered charm. The public areas (bar, garden etc) are delightful and the restaurant excellent. It is centrally situated a short walk from the main square and cathedral. Our room was on the small side but was very comfortable and well-equipped. The bathroom likewise. There were black-out curtains and French doors to a small balcony. Service from the multi-lingual staff was uniformly excellent. The whole place was spotlessly clean. I have travelled widely for business and now in retirement and this is undoubtable one of the best, most character-filled, hotels I've ever stayed in. My one complaint was that our room's a/c blew air but didn't noticeably cool. In the height of summer that would have been an issue.

I stayed at the Belmond Hotel Monasterio last month and I couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. We received outstanding service the entire visit from check-in to check out, Thanks again for making our trip memorial.
Having stayed at many luxury hotels before, this is the first one which absolutely took my breath away. The unassuming faĂ§ade conceals a beautiful chapel and courtyard. But it doesn't end there, as you pass into another equally beautiful cloistered courtyard where the rooms are located. The cafĂ© served a wonderful buffet breakfast The vaulted dining room was a magnificent backdrop for a lovely dinner complete with opera singers. My sole complaint was that the morning coffee was insipid, worst in Peru.
