My family and I stayed at Palacio Nazarenas for a total of 4 nights on our way to Machu Picchu and back. During our trip we stayed at other Orient Express properties as well as two non-OE hotels and there is nothing that can compare to Palacio Nazarenas.
The rooms are stunningly beautiful and even the junior suites are huge and luxurious. The many courtyards of the hotel are lovely and perfectly kept. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Our personal butler Alan contributed to our wonderful experience by providing a truly remarkable level of service. The complimentary in-room bar and snacks, the excellent food in both the restaurants and room service, and the beautiful tea service in the herb garden all also contributed immensely to our enjoyable stay.
The facilities, food, staff and ambience of this hotel cannot be beat. We would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone. It is not just a gem in Cusco, but in Peru in general and in the Orient Express collection as a whole.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Would the nuns in this converted 17th-century convent have approved of the pisco sour cocktail-making stations? Anything is possible, given the diverse incarnations of this contemporary urban retreat. Belmond Palacio Nazarenas was built on Inca foundations and became a palatial private home in the 1500s. It was owned by the conquistador Mancio Serra de Leguizamon—a warrior who is said to have gambled and lost the gold Inca image of the sun from the Coricancha temple. The Jesuits converted the building into a school in 1644, which itself became a convent in 1715. We’ve preserved all that’s most precious here: you’ll find original Inca stonework, colonial frescos and gold-framed paintings collected by the nuns. At the same time you’ll discover the best of the new world within our walls. We’ll look after you in the most elegant way possible, whether your idea of relaxing is taking a morning yoga class or an evening salsa lesson. ... more less
