Stay at Monasterio, one of the most unique hotels in Cusco, and experience the thrill of staying in a protected national monument. Discover inspired restaurants and boutique rooms and suites, all clustered around a tranquil central courtyard.

The ideal hotel from which to discover the delights of the city, its doors open to a vibrant scene of old and modern architecture, markets, galleries and cafes serving exciting Andean cuisine.

The hotel’s pièce de résistance is its jaw-dropping symmetrical courtyard. Laced with walkways and flowerbeds, the most prominent feature is the towering 300-year-old cedar tree that sits in the middle.

By day, head to the courtyard’s cloisters and enjoy tea or a light lunch. Or take pen and paper, settle down by the central fountain and let the muses strike.

In the evenings the courtyard’s graceful arches are accentuated by beautiful lighting. When darkness falls, the illuminated arches make a sensational frame for the starry night sky above.

From its enviable position beside the lively central square to its historic roots as a former monastery, Monasterio is an enchanting hideaway. It also boasts some of the most indulgent and unique accommodation in Cusco. After a day exploring the city, curl up under hand-woven alpaca blankets and dream of the adventures still to come.
