We stayed at this hotel twice during our time in Peru, both before and after our trip to the Sacred Valley. It has a good location, and is in a stunning building, an old Inca palace. It has five stars and it's quite easy to see why - but somehow we didn't particularly like it.

On our first visit we were in one of the modern rooms near the back of the hotel. It was a good size and had everything you'd expect but was rather bland and anonymous - no sense of being in such an historical spot. The room we had on our second visit was much better. It was on the first floor and in the old part of the building, so we did get a real sense of history. But on this occasion we were only there for one night and didn't have any time to appreciate it! So if you're coming here do try to get one of these older rooms, otherwise you might just as well stay somewhere cheaper.

Being five star too, the prices in the bar and restaurant are very high, although the coffee shop was more reasonable. The buffet breakfast however, which is included, is very good and will give you an occasion to eat in the restaurant with its old Inca walls.


Unique Qualities: The Inca walls mentioned above can also be seen in the bar - but on the other hand you can see these walls all over Cusco without paying five star prices for them!
