Cusco: Belmond Hotel Monasterio

Visit Us

Belmond Hotel Monasterio

Relive the rarefied atmosphere of the colonial era with modern luxury refinements in this converted monastery in the heart of old Cusco. You can’t ignore the strong presence of history here – Gregorian chanting is piped through the cloisters and Catholic art looms from the stone walls – but nor would you want to: the place is totally captivating. 

Operated by Belmond (formerly known as Orient Express - the owner is the same only the name has changed), the levels of service at Belmond Hotel Monasterio are characteristically high and the rooms are decorated in distinctive style with remarkable attention to detail. Each is different in size and shape owing to the building's former role – some were once monks' cells, others spaces dedicated to religious devotion. Many have a state-of-the-art oxygen enrichment system to reduce the effects of altitude.


The building centres around a stunning cloistered courtyard, where a serene garden and shaded seating invite relaxation and contemplation. There’s also a series of smaller courtyards to wander around and a magnificent stone-arched restaurant serving inventive gourmet cuisine. Don't miss the chance to look around the chapel with its ornate wooden carvings and gold filigree.

What our experts say

There are nice romantic touches in all the rooms, such as candles in the bathrooms; in the deluxe suites you are lent an alpaca shawl for use in the hotel.
