  • As in most of Peru, WiFi can be patchy and slow
  • Given a size of 11 suites, room service is limited
  • Cusco stands at more than 11,000 feet, so altitude sickness is a possibility

Overview

The Review

Behind the stone walls of Cusco’s charming and revered Plaza de las Nazarenas, Inkaterra La Casona doubles as a modern boutique hotel and a living museum. The 11-suite two-story Spanish mansion is registered as a national historic monument, a well-preserved link to Cusco’s pre-Columbian past and colonial history.

Surrounding a verdant inner courtyard, the palatial suites and regal common areas combine Spanish architecture with Incan structural elements and baroque colonial furniture with Incan textiles and locally handcrafted products.{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/editorialreviews/9750/pgal-49934-1287699542-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The 11-suite Inkaterra embodies the architectural styles of both the Incan and Spanish empires.”}

Cusco’s mystical quality is omnipresent within the confines of La Casona. The patterns, the colors, the murals, the stone columns, the ubiquitous antiques and the intricate minutiae of La Casona create a desire to learn more about the varied history of this manor house.

While a cultural cornucopia beckons outside the hotel’s towering doors, returning to La Casona between or after ambles through Plaza de Armas, excursions to the Sacred Valley or pilgrimages to Machu Picchu constitutes a welcome extension of social immersion.

To please the modern traveler, the hotel is equipped with five-star creature comforts that don’t compromise the stylish sophistication or historical authenticity of Inkaterra. More than just technologically savvy, the suites at La Casona have stone fireplaces, separate dining areas and comfy nailhead upholstered beds with traditional Peruvian accessories. The oversize marble and stone bathrooms merit hours of relaxation time, soaking in the tub with locally made bath salts or indulging in a powerful rain-shower massage using handmade shower products.

The house butler graciously awaits any and all requests you may have during your stay and the intimate house spa is just a few steps from your suite. The restaurant is for hotel guests only, preparing daily Peruvian breakfast feasts to get you ready to take on the day.

Cusco in style

What a beautiful hotel situated in the heart of Cusco and such a warm welcome to a colonial style boutique hotel that really stands out.

The rooms are similarly stunning and situated around a stone galleried courtyard

favorite hotel ever!

Seriously - I love this hotel. The accommodations were so luxurious and attention was paid to every detail. We stayed in suite #10 upstairs and I am still in love with the bathroom layout. Privacy in the shower and toilet. But open, natural light, 2 sinks and plenty of towels alongside a roomy bath. Our windows opened and the cool night air was lovely as we were warm and comfortable in the bed.
The employees made it so special - Jesus and Elvis, among others, were very professional and helpful. They helped with directions and answered many questions about the area around the hotel.

Beautiful but will not stay again

I want to start this review with how beautiful this hotel is - truly beautiful. We stayed in a patio suite which had a nice sized bedroom and very large exquisite bathroom. The location of the hotel is also great and within one block of the Plaza de Armas. The reasons that we will not stay again may be more personal reasons. Even though Cusco was quite cold while we were there our room was very hot and the windows did not open in our room. There is a small window type thing you could open at the top of the door but it didn’t let much air into the room. We also did not find the bed to be comfortable - little too hard for us. We also stayed at Inkaterra Pueblo during this trip and it was the same type of bed. Please let me say again the place is pretty and the staff were wonderful. But, for the cost of this hotel and our personal preferences we would not stay again.

One of the Best Ever

We spent three nights here while visiting Cusco and Machu Pichu. It is beautifully appointed, in a wonderful old town place. The staff is superb. It's an easy walk to the old town areas including a spectacular square with great restaurants nearby. Their restaurant is excellent!
