Cusco, the capital of the Incan empire, plays host to the wise and elegant 16th century Hotel Monasterio. The 126 rooms share a window into this fascinating world, for the hotel is not far from high mountains that rise on the horizon and its surrounding rooftops. The rooms are not especially large, as they were once home to monks. However, the building itself is akin to a museum. Guests are privy to cuisine offered by talented chefs at the hotel, who dabble in Andean spices, mostly organic produce, and traditional treats fused with international specialties. For a more relaxed atmosphere, one may try any of the restaurants in the heart of the city. The main square of the town is just a short walk away, and one may pass the time at the local bars, markets, and shopping sites.
Hotel Monasterio, an Orient-Express Hotel is the ideal base from which to discover Cuzco and the ancient ruins at Machu Picchu, which can be reached via a spectacular three-hour train journey. The Hotel Monasterio is only a ten-minute drive from the airport and just two blocks from the Plaza de Armas, Cuzco's central square, where the cathedral and most important museums are located. This unique hotel museum is an architectural treasure built on Inca foundations with a beautiful chapel adorned with extraordinary gold ornaments. It combines the solemnity of a colonial monastery with the luxury, elegance, comfort and excellent quality of a modern five-star hotel.
Hotel Monasterio has 126 rooms many of them with charming views of the city, the colourful rooftops of Cuzco or the beautiful inner courtyards of the hotel. The decoration and furnishings combine the best of modern and traditional Spanish colonial style. Magnificent examples of religious art adorn the walls.
