Set high in the Andes, more than 3000 metres above sea level, lies the 16th-century 5-star Hotel Monasterio Cusco, originally built as a monastery in 1592. This is the ideal base from which to discover Cusco and the ancient ruins at Machu Picchu, which can be reached by a spectacular three-hour train journey.
Hotel Monasterio has 126 rooms, including Superior and Deluxe rooms as well as various suites. The decoration and furnishings combine modern and traditional Spanish colonial style, and many of the rooms have charming views of the city. All are equipped with telephone, central heating, mini bar, safe, cable television and hairdryer. As the building's architecture has barely been altered, no two rooms here are the same.
Sign up for a city tour or experience some of Cusco's many activities, from mountain biking and white water rafting to fishing and horse riding. Then relax those aching muscles with a massage or aromatherapy treatment, or even an extra-special bath, with the Hotel Monasterio's unique Bath Butler service
Hotel Monasterio offers the perfect setting for the ultimate dining experience. The Illariy is decorated with ancient Cusco paintings and is the ideal place to enjoy a light meal, snack or a superb dinner. Buffet breakfasts ate served at El Tupay, along with Cusquenian nights. Elsewhere at the hotel, the Lobby Bar boasts a large variety of cocktails and refreshments, or guests can dine in the comfort of their own rooms with 24-hour room service.
