“Historic Boutique Hotel, Perfect”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

For those interested in historic colonial architecture, this is the place to stay. It is located in a converted 16th centurymansion occupied at one time by Simon Bolivar. Entry to the hotel is gained through an original door keeping it almost anonymous but safe. Rooms are located around the central courtyard. The location is on a small square one block away from the main colonial centre of Cusco.The hotel´s private and public areas are decorated with antiques and local textiles. All in done in a subdued manner.

The rooms are few in number. We stayed twice with a gap for Machu Picchu. This permitted us to view two rooms. The first was large with many rugs on the floor and a distinct seating area with three armchairs. There was an original fireplace with the option for a fire to be lit if requested. The bathroom had two separate enclosures for toilet and shower, both of which had underfloor heating. The bath was large and again there were rugs. There were also towels galore. Amenities were in bottles and there was no lack. Hot water bottles came as part of the turndown service and kept us very warm.

The second room was even larger with the bathroom behind the seating/sleeping area. This time there was a sofa as well as the armchairs. The bathroom had the same facilities but the layout was different with two separate basin areas as opposed to the twin basins in the previous room.

The dining room again had the trademarks of antiques. stuffed cushions and comfortable chairs. Breakfast comprised the usual fruits, eggs etc. Coffee was delivered in a cafetiere. Dinner was of relatively limited choice but the food was delicious. We opted for simple room service on occasion as we were tired. The fact that there was no additional charge was welcome.

WiFi was available throughout the hotel and free. Noise was minimal but it is located on a square so there may be some foot traffic rather than cars.

It was a sécial place.

Wonderful small hotel, part of Relais & Chateaux group. Each beautifully decorated suite has its own fireplace and large, elegant bathroom. All 11 suites are located around a beautiful colonial Spanish courtyard, and the hotel is on a quiet square walking distance from all the action and attractions. Excellent service and experience (other than the altitude sickness!).

A very quiet and peaceful hotel within 5 - 10 minutes walk to the main square in the town.
We did not see any other guests during our stay.

Wonderful colonial hotel .
Great location , short walk to main square .
Beautiful decor throughout the hotel contributing to a extremely peaceful atmosphere.
Staff and all service in all areas were amazing.
Rooms and beds extremely comfortable and spacious enough to include a 3rd bed for our daughter; who particularly enjoyed the hot water placed there each evening.
Complementary snacks, water and pop are provided in the minibar.
Wonderful large bathroom with double sinks, soaker tub and large shower. A heated towel rack in the bathroom is also handy for drying any small items of laundry.

Afternoon tea , including coca tea is served each afternoon in the dining room between 4 and 6. Coca tea also served in our room upon arrival.
Breakfast was good , eggs can be ordered in addition to the buffet items. It starts at 5am if you have an early start.
Dinner was included in our package and we found the food to be excellent. Meals included three courses. Unfortunately we were feeling the effects of the altitude and could not eat as much as usual.
We stayed in two different rooms in this hotel on our way in and out of the Sacred Valley , one opened into the interior of the hotel, it was probably a little larger than the second which had a window opening onto a side street. This room had double windows and shutters --- we did not find it noisy.

Would love to go back.
