Palacio Del Inka, A Luxury Collection Hotel


A luxurious hotel built on the ruins of an Incan palace.

Originally an Incan ceremonial site, this unique hotel was converted into an elegant mansion by the Spanish conquistadors and is now one of Cuzco's finest hotels. Beautiful hand-carved wooden doors, antique oil paintings and vases make it feel more like a museum than a hotel and the location is perfect. It’s just steps from the main square and close to restaurants, markets and museums. Unwind at the award-winning spa’s thermal circuit, discover the site’s fascinating history during the daily tour of the hotel and learn how to make Pisco sours at the bar.

The evocative Inti Raymi Restaurant features stone archways, exposed walls and vintage furniture, and showcases the best of regional cuisine. Breakfast is accompanied by a harpist and you can enjoy all meals in the charming courtyard. Tuck into tapas and cocktails at the intimate lantern-lit Rumi Bar which features an original Incan wall.

The Andean-style oxygen-enriched rooms and suites are adorned with original artwork and traditional weavings. Upgrade to a Premium Room for street views or a Deluxe Room for extra space.
