Belmond Palacio Nazarenas

Part of the International Belmond chain, this hotel is a palace, with Inca walls and stones. It has an open pool, a spa, a bar, and a place to eat. They offer a free buffet breakfast in the morning and free Wi-Fi.

Their rooms have all that you need, with a private butler.

Here you pay for quality. It’s one of the most expensive hotels in Cusco but people who can afford it, often just want to stay there forever.

Palacio del Inka, a Luxury collection hotel

Part of the Marriot International Luxury Brand, made famous by “Travel+Leisure” as number 3 in the “Top 10 city hotels in Central and South America”

Palacio del Inka is a museum-hotel with an amazing world-class art collection. They have an amazing collection of over 165 pieces. 60 of which are from the Cusco School, which you can admire during your stay. Some pieces of the mansion, such as the arch and the stairs have been intact since the Inca period.

There are three reasons why we really like this hotel. 1) The staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. They are there in every respect from the moment you check in to the moment you walk out the front door on your way home. 2) They have done an amazing job. Especially with the Incan and colonial options of the building while keeping a warm and modern stay. 3) Their on-site tour operator VENTURIA can offer unique journey like the Cusco City Tour and Machu Picchu Tour right from the lobby!

Belmond Hotel Monasterio

A great choice for those seeking a historical-style, luxury accommodation option in Cusco

As its name implies, the Belmond Hotel Monasterio sits on the site of a Jesuit Monastery built in 1595 to train Catholic priests in Cusco. Prior to this date, it was the Palace of the Inca Amaru Qhala.  Today, you won’t find any Inca design in this property but you will find an amazing example of colonial renaissance style design and a world famous Cusco landmark.

One thing that does set Belmond Hotel Monasterio apart from other hotels in Cusco is the best Belmond service. No request is too big here and friendly staff do everything to make your stay the best. Rates include a buffet breakfast with tasty bread and pastries made by the in-house French pastry Chef that are also in the Deli Monasterio Café next door.

JW Marriot Hotel Cusco

The 153-room, five-star JW Marriott hotel Cusco like many buildings in Cusco is packed full of history and is built on the site of the Colonial Convent of San Agustin dating from the 16th century.

Portuguese named Ana Patricia Piña was hired to keep the cultural and historic essence of the hotel and retain original features such as the chapel, which is now the reception area, the original wall of the convent in the Pirqa eatery, and the archaeological exhibition spaces with Incan and Killke (the culture prior to the Incas) archaeological artifacts. The pillars in the central patio, for example, were removed piece by piece for restoration during the construction work and then re-installed, giving an original feel to the colonial patio.

The decoration is inspired by the colonial era with colonial art, furnishings, and antiques found throughout the hotel. A sparkling waterfall of diamond-cut crystals draws you into the reception area with an incredible 65,000 Swarovski crystals twinkling in the representation of the Incan Sun God Inti.

Cusco is a must-see destination, with Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley attractions, the charms of the imperial capital, and natural wonders to developed adventure sports. Fortunately, there are fantastic hotels to stay in that are close to everything, such as the Casa Cartagena Hotel & Spa. It is extremely close to the famous Twelve Angles Stone in Cusco’s historic center. It is a modest hotel with 17 suites with individual balconies overlooking the pool, a two-way oxygen enrichment system, and butler service, in addition to TVs, Wi-Fi, and luxury baths.

Costa Del Sol Ramada Cusco

Given that Machu Picchu is 75 kilometers from Cusco, the Sacred Valley is 53 kilometers, and only three important attractions such as the Cathedral, the Qoricancha (the Sun Temple), and Sacsayhuaman are in the same city, a visitor may need 4 to 5 days to visit all of these fantastic attractions. And the Ramada by Wyndham Costa del Sol Cusco could be another excellent choice for your conference location in Cusco. This is a fantastic hotel in the centre of Cusco, built over a large colonial-era house belonging to the renowned Spanish Marquez Picoaga and considered part of the city’s historic heritage.


Machu Picchu is the cherry on top of any Cusco tour, and there are several ways to get there. The most common and traditional is by train (03 hours of travel), while the other option is for adventurers, trekking along the Inca Trail, the Salkantay snow route, or the Lares route (4 to 5 days) or combining bus (4 hours) + train (1 hour). In any case, you will require maximum comfort to relax and recover energy from a beginning place such as Cusco, and the luxury Novotel Hotel, owned by the French hotel brand Accor, can assist you with this. And, if you’re asking, why go to Cusco? Finding an answer from this excellent hotel can be a great place to start.
