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.

Great place - a little noisy
Reviewed 1 month ago

Loved this small little hotel but it was a little noisy with fireworks in the nearby plaza. Rooms including a fire place and both large bathtub and shower. Turn down service included a hot water bottle they put in your bed to warm it up for you.

Wonderful hidden gem

We stayed in this beautiful hotel on our journey in Peru , it's a small boutique hotel with only 11 suites
The atmosphere was so tranquil just what we need each night after a busy day
Staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us
We had dinner in the restaurant and really enjoyed it

Highly recommended

Amazing and Charming hotel
Reviewed 2 months ago

Despite thorough planning and trying to alleviate altitude sickness, when we landed in Cusco, there was a transportation strike. SO we could not depart for Sacred Valley as planned and unexpectedly had to stay at the Inkaterra La Casona. Much to delight, our initial disappointment in having to adapt to the circumstances changed to a feeling of "wow" as we entered this heritage hotel. The building has been converted to a charming hotel, with impeccable décor and beautifully appointed rooms. The food was very good too, and the location, so close to the main square was excellent. A truly unique space and experience for us!

Best lunch we had in Peru
Reviewed 2 months ago

Our travel agent arranged for us to lunch here our first day in Cusco and it was amazing in both service and food. Each course was beautifully plated and delicious. Better than several other highly rated restaurants in Cusco. Eat here if you can!

Nice hotel with a residential feeling. Yet be careful about choosing a room on the first floor with higher ceilings and larger windows without bars. Otherwise if you end up with a ground floor room you might feel a little claustrophobic. Location is perfect and attention to details is excellent. Breakfast is great.
