Historic mansion filled with antiquities

This 16th-Century colonial mansion has been beautifully restored and transformed into a luxury boutique hotel that occupies a prime position in the heart of the Inca city. Adorned with colonial sculptures, carvings and artwork, this exceptional hotel offers a blend of art, history and warm hospitality.

The striking façade of this charming hotel sets the tone for the elegant style found within. The hotel exhibits a permanent collection of paintings from the 'Cusco School' and along with traditional flourishes such as ornate mirrors, frescoes and helical columns, the unique decor beautifully evokes a bygone era. Artwork, statues and antiques are scattered throughout the historic corridors which feature exposed brick work and period furniture with crystal chandeliers and vases of fresh flowers providing graceful touches.

Upon arrival you can sip coca tea in the cosy lounge to help you acclimatise to the city's high altitude. Help yourself to fruit in the lobby and enjoy the expansive breakfast buffet which is served next to the pretty courtyard under the warming rays of the morning sun. At Mishti Mestizo Restaurant you can feast on traditional Andean recipes influenced by the cultural diversity of contemporary Cusco. Typical dishes to tempt your tastebuds include corn soup, alpaca tenderloins and bitter chocolate and Quillabamba coffee créme brulée. Khasikay Bar offers a superb selection of international wines and cocktails - including outstanding Piscobased creations, as well as a varied menu of tapas that recreate the tradition of the Andean dishes.

The elegant rooms are beautifully furnished and feature free Wi-Fi, an oxygen system to aid in the prevention of altitude sickness, and a beautiful marble bathroom with underfloor heating, organic toiletries and a pillow menu. Deluxe Rooms are slightly larger than Standard Rooms while the Superior Deluxe Rooms are more even spacious and have fantastic views of the city or the hotel’s colonial courtyards. The Junior Suite features a small living room while the lavish Suites are adorned with unique artwork and have a living room, and a balcony with magnificent views over the city.
