Belmond Hotel Monasterio



One of the most prized jewels of Cusco is the Belmond Hotel Monasterio, a real historical beauty. The haven boasts stone arches, centuries' old paintings, and an expansive courtyard. These allow deep yet brief insight into the city's secrets. Known to be the most evocative and exciting hotel in Peru, it combines tradition with modernism. Carefully restored in the 16th century from a monastery, the hotel is now a prestigious address. Moreover, guests can enjoy the numerous hotspots. They can also travel to the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge through the convenient Hiram Bingham train.

Adorned in a whitewashed stone exterior, the haven is indicative of a glorious past. A cobblestone foyer often stuns guests. This combines with a wall covered by Incan masks behind a 24-hours reception service desk. Furthermore, you can walk into the vibrant scene of the flowering courtyard for some fresh air. Or, linger in the lobby admiring the stunning interior. You can also enjoy the exquisite restaurants or take a walk in the courtyard with a loved one.

History

Initially dating from 1592 a monastery, the setting was converted in 1952 into the brilliant hotel it is today. Located on the small Nazarene Plaza, Belmond Hotel Monasterio's historic exterior speaks for itself. The haven has several Monastery original oil paintings, some dating over 400 years or more. Moreover, a 300-year old cedar tree is often the center of attention. Besides, a large fountain makes an outstanding outdoor ambiance in good weather.

Other regal details include an ancient stone fireplace and massive old-style wooden doors. There is also a series of stone arches and beautiful iron chandeliers. An impressive on-site chapel as old as the 18th century is yet another attraction for guests. It is a smaller version of the splendid and gilded churches on Peru's main square. What's more, Peru's National Institute of Culture now recognizes the resort as a historical landmark.

Location

Located in one of the colonial city's most famous addresses, the Belmond Hotel Monasterio is close to many tourist attractions. Its doors open to a vibrant surrounding.

Both are only a few minutes away on foot. Also, the most significant Inka Temple, Qurikancha (Temple of the Sun), is only a little over a 5-minute walk.

Furthermore, the Poroy station (Machu Picchu departure point) is less than 30 minutes away by car, while the Wanchaq train station is only a 10-minute drive from the premises. Therefore, if you are traveling to Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport, expect a 25-minute drive.
