Belmond Hotel Monasterio

Housed in the 16th century Seminary of San Antonio Abad just a short walk from the Plaza de Armas, Belmond Hotel Monasterio is a marvel of stone masonry, colonial escutcheons, Cusco-school artworks and arcaded walkways.

One of the most unique hotels in Cusco, the Belmond Hotel Monasterio combines centuries-old charm with professional service. A national monument, you can experience a touch of Peruvian history without even leaving your room, each one remaining largely unchanged. All rooms are unique, varying in design and size. Most offer pleasant views across the courtyard of the cobbled streets of Cusco.

With a 300-year old cedar tree as its centrepiece and a chapel complete with an art collection, this elegant hotel is rooted within the local culture. The Belmond’s team will be happy to arrange guided cultural tours, traditional crafts classes or even a hands-on cooking class. In the evenings, sit back and relax at the elegant lobby bar with a pisco sour in hand whilst listening to the finest jazz musicians.

Why we like it

  • A restored 16th-century monastery, the hotel is renowned for its magnificent architecture and impressive art collection
  • Discover the origins of Peru’s national drink, pisco, and enjoy tasting several varieties
  • Take a tour of vibrant San Pedro Market before taking part in an action-packed cookery class
