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.
Inkaterra La Casona Hotel Cusco
Eleven rooms set around a typical colonial-style courtyard make up one of the finest luxury boutique hotels right in the heart of Cusco. This hotel is all about intimacy, privacy, and pleasure. Every element of the building and service has been created with astonishing attention to detail.
This building has history, and is designated a historical monument, each stone in the building has been cataloged by the Peruvian National Institute of Culture and the sourced antiques and objects at the hotel dating from the Inca, Colonial, and Republican eras make this one of the finest examples of colonial history in Cusco.
