You deserved to satay at this hotel while you are in Cusco full of mmajestic people and majestic toom witj a spa in it we live every minute we staued in this hotel, we are planing to come back next year and of course we will taking this hotel again and again

This was a lovely hotel in Cusco, well appointed rooms and friendly staff. Good location, walkable to several restaurants. The only downside was noise as the room was facing the Square. Otherwise, this would have been 5 stars

I stayed here only one night ... this historic, peaceful oasis. I so want to return. The rooms are beyond luxurious; the setting idyllic. When not soaking in the giant tub, or enjoying the gifted cheeses and delights from the minibar, you can stroll the courtyards and gardens, swim in the heated out door pool, or listen to a solo musician playing native songs on a harp-like instrument in the breakfast room. Or meet an indigenous artisan working her loom. Or unwind in the spa. Or meander through this palacio and enjoy the murals painted by cloistered nuns, former residents of this extraordinary space. On and on. This hotel is rare and special. If you are in Cusco (a wonderful destination on its own) and want to spurge, this lovely idyll will not disappoint.

In the heart of old Cusco, a block away from the Plaza des Armas, you will find both Belmond hotels side-by-side. One in an ancient monastery. One in an ancient Convent of the Nazarenes. Nazarenas is about a quarter the size of Monastery and it's intimacy, layout, and the uniqueness of each room make it spectacular. The entrance faces on the courtyard, is 90 degrees to the MAP restaurant, and quite small as hotel entrances go because, as you come in the doors, you have reception and check-in immediately on your left, a cozy seating area in front of you, and the concierge in a separate room to your right, but walk through and you are in a gorgeous courtyard from the 14th and 15th century. Next to you, on your left is a chapel, in front of you a fountain, and around you the rooms. Walk through that courtyard, to the next courtyard, for another grouping of rooms and, high above you, to your left on the terrace, you'll find the dining-room, the bar, the spa, the pool, and the last group of rooms. Every room is unique and has supplemental oxygen so do NOT open your windows for fresh air, only to take advantage of the light and the views. Our room was 109 in the corner- you walked into a spacious living room area, following through to the bedroom, following through to a very spacious, elegant bathroom. One of our group had room 209 which was upstairs in the corner away from us in our courtyard with hugely high ceilings (being at the top of the building)- you walked into that living room, then into the dressing room bathroom, and then on to the bedroom. And the third in our group had room 103 in the first courtyard - you walked in to a bedroom-living-room combination separated by a pop-up television cabinetry, and then into the spacious bathroom. Every room comes with its own 24-hour butler service, which came in very handy for some of us. The breakfast buffet is in a solarium room extension of the dining room and beautiful, tasty, diverse for guest tastes, and excellent. Next to it, the bar is in an older space with a glass wall. Both faced 2 sides of the pool and were washed in light. I would have to say one of my favorite hotels in all the world.

It's hard to write this because this hotel is fantastic, it truly blows you away. It makes me smile every time i think about it. It is just that great. I would go back there in a heartbeat. In fact, I will. Smiling, reminiscing, trying to write this review and not just get on a plane and go back right now. Look, the room was exquisite, they have beautifully scented pillows, the bed was very comfortable. My room overlooked the pool, which was heated. I had a balcony, 20 year old rum, in room bar totally complimentary, huge bathroom with heated floors. I had a butler. The hotel was quiet. Fireworks in the distance at night. Staff was excellent. Let me make this easy, this is a great hotel, stay here.

Most tourists do not spend enough time to enjoy all that Cusco has to offer, so every moment is precious. This modern hotel in an ancient monastery ambiance provides a very special experience. Many rooms may be similar, but not identical. Spacious but pressurized rooms, very well planned and beautifully decorated, splendid central location, and very very helpful and friendly service. Excellent and rich breakfast, very nice restaurant and bar.

This hotel is amazing. Check in process was fast, the staffs are helpful, very good service. Hotel's location is just perfect, close to walk around to main restaurants and shops, places of interests, etc. Had our dinner at the restaurant during arrival, the food was excellent. The breakfast also very good. The studio suite was really spacious, with a nice city view. Great amenities inside. Oxygen flows to your bedroom. The hotel's ground also very nice. Must visit the beautiful small chapel in the complex. The spa also excellent. The massage was very good and the rooms are nice. We enjoyed our stay here.

This hotel is top notch, in every sense of the word. Although this hotel is in an historic building, everything has been updated to include every creature comfort imaginable without losing its historic charm. The property is immaculate without being stuffy. The rooms are quite spacious, with a bathroom that is larger than most average hotel rooms. There is an Illy espresso maker in the room, as well as bottles of Rum and Pisco that are complimentary for guests. The bed is comfortable, and the rooms are quiet. This property is among the nicest that I've seen.

Everything about this hotel, which was once a convent, is pretty spectacular. The rooms are comfortable, beautifully decorated, and well-equipped. The bathrooms are large and luxurious. The staff are amazing and will go out of their way to please you. The location is just about ideal - a couple of blocks from the Plaza de Armas, just situated in a quiet square that won't disturb your night's sleep. The breakfast buffet is well above average - you won't go hungry. The oxygen flowing into the rooms may or may not help you adjust to Cuzco's elevation, but it sure won't hurt either. You pay a high price for all this luxury, comfort, and top-notch service. But we found it a very worthwhile splurge.

butler service was amazing !!!! Ours was Daniel, he came to the room and made us Pisco Sours, the Peruvian cocktail . He is a great Pisco maker and has lots of local knowledge. this hotel has a central location. And when they do your laundry they bring it back packaged in a beautiful basket with a flower, all the little touches. AMAZING breakfast.
