Let yourself be transported back in time to another (colonial) era in Cusco. Arrive at the Hotel Monasterio, constructed in 1592 in a former monastery. Erected around a series of internal stone courtyards in typical Spanish style with arcades, this Orient Express hotel is deep in cusqueño history.
Check into your room decorated with touches of the colonial period yet modernized for comfort. The oxygen-filled room will decrease the altitude for easy sleeping. Through your window, gaze at the handsome red-tiled rooftops and church domes of Cusco. Bells toll in the distance. Walk the grounds of the hotel to admire the colonial art collection and visit the hotel’s chapel ornately painted in gold.
Don’t feel like wandering afar for dinner? Try their signature restaurant Illariy where you can try regional dishes like cuy (guinea pig) or the ever-loved ceviche. At breakfast, you may discover Gregorian chanting with your café.
