Inkaterra La Casona

Inkaterra La Casona

All of Inkaterra’s hotels are exquisite – this hotel, located within a National Historic Monument that once housed Simon Bolivar, is no exception. Each of the suites in this hotel each show meticulous attention to detail, superb comfort and feature antiques and artefacts which incorporate the Spanish and Incan history of Cusco.

Conde Nast Traveller says: “This restored manor house in the City’s historical heart has 11 suites with stone fireplaces, faded frescos and colonial tapestries, all set around an elegant courtyard. The 16th centry surroundings are offset by hi-tech comforts such as heated floors, IPod speakers and wi-fi.” (The Red Hot List 2009).

Price From $418 per night.


Hotel Monasterio

Belmond Hotel Monasterio

Palacio 136

Probably Cusco´s most prestigious hotel, set in an old monastery. You pay to stay in the grand, elegant setting! Unique, spacious rooms with lashings of colonial charm.

Price From $600 per night | Ask for low season prices.


Hotel Libertador

Palacio del Inka (formerly Hotel Libertador)

Plazoleta Santo Domingo 259

Without doubt one of the most famous hotels in Cusco –but rooms are standard hotel rooms, with small bathrooms. If you are going to splurge then we recommend a Deluxe or Suite room! The Libertador is an "old favourite" - it certainly still has atmosphere but you can get better value for money in other places around Cusco. Excellent location, right opposite the Santo Domingo convent.

Price From $400 per night | Ask for low season prices.
