“Unparalleled Luxury in Peru”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

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.

My father, brother, and I stayed at the Palacio Nazarenas for four nights during our Peru and Maccu Picchu trip, and it was one of the best and most memorable hotels we've ever stayed at.

The hotel was opened in June 2012 and we stayed in November 2013. It was absolutely breathtaking and I didn't want to leave! I stayed in a Junior Suite with my brother (two twin beds) with our father next door in a Junior Suite that had a king size bed. There is absolutely nothing Junior about these rooms - they are HUGE!! We had rooms overlooking the pool with also a great view of the mountains. It was so nice to come back everyday/wake up each morning to those views.

The rooms were impeccable. The beds were so comfortable, linens so soft, bathroom so big and gorgeous, and tons of room in the closet to unpack.

The food was incredible as well! We ate dinner one night at their restaurant Senzo and it was one of our favorites in Cusco. Breakfast every morning was so delicious - fresh fruit and cheese, eggs and pancakes made to order, tons of unique cereals, and fresh breads with homemade jams, just to list off the basics.

And to quote another reviewer, the staff and level of service was impeccable. They made us feel like royalty, but more so made us feel like friends. The staff was so attentive and paid such excellent attention to detail, always there to take care of any need. But they also left you alone to enjoy your vacation.

After our trek to Macchu Picchu, we came back to Cusco and spent one night at the Hotel Monasterio right next door. It was nice, but a thousand times over I would recommend the Palacio Nazarenas. I can't wait to come back! The only thing I would do differently is bring a bathing suit- that pool was gorgeous.

Dear Samantha G,

Thank you so much for your review, very motivating!
I have actually quoted you during our New Years party, the royalty-friends part that is. This is a great accomplishment of the team, and all credit to them!

Thank you for sharing and do let me know when returning to Cusco

Our last stop for our 3 week tour of Peru was Cusco. In fact it was a double stop because first we visited Cusco and Sacred Valley and twe returned to Cusco after our visit to Machu Picchu. It was good planning to stay in total 6 nights in Palacio Nazarenas (first 4 nights and then 2 after our visit to Mach Picchu). We could not have selected a better place to stay in Cusco.
We had booked a junior suite but got upgraded to a master suite and the only description is : Fabulous.
From the moment you arrive with a welcome bouquet of flowers for the lady, to the moment you depart the service is friendly and impeccable.
We had left our luggage in the hotel for our short overnight stay at Machu Picchu, to find our luggage already in our room when we returned late in the evening from the train, it is these types of excellent service that adds to the feeling of well being.
Also the location in great to visit the center of Cusco, for shopping and to enjoy the local restaurants.
Another great orient-express experience.

This hotel was just perfect! The rooms were wonderful and the bathrooms were gorgeous! In fact, I took pictures of the tiles in the bathroom for reference when I re-do my own bathroom. The bed was super comfortable...the quality of the linens were memorable. There is even a private bar in the room to make your own pisco sour! One of the best hotels I've stayed in anywhere in the world!!

This hotel is newly opened and beautiful. Our suite was off of one of the central courtyards and very private. Everything about this hotel from the food to the rooms to the service is top-notch. We had a huge living room, bedroom and master bath- all beautifully decorated. The ceilings were quite high and oxygen was pumped into the bedroom at night. This is very necessary is you are not used to trying to breathe at 11,000 ft altitude. The service was fabulous - the staff came running when they saw me trying to bring my suitcase. The food was superior. The location is right off the main square so you can walk to everything there. This was our place to depart for Machu Pichu.

Room Tip: We had a suite.

WOW. The only negative about this place is that we had to leave!!!! This is by far one of my favorite hotels I have ever stayed in. My husband and I visited in October for our first anniversary. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. At the same time, we felt like we were treated like friends. The service was amazing but not overly formal. They were perfectly attentive. They never said "no". They always found an answer or a solution no matter what the question or request was.

The rooms: WOW. The rooms were breathtakingly beautiful. We stayed in a room with a balcony which overlooked the beautiful pool as well as the hills of Cusco. I could've spent a whole day just sitting on the balcony and relaxing! The beds were unbelievably comfortable. The bathrooms were spacious and luxurious to the max. The closets were extremely spacious as well. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't already in the room. Unbelievable! You can even ask your butler to give you complimentary Pisco sour lessons - SO neat!

The public spaces in the hotel are absolutely breathtaking. There are a number of courtyards available for exploration. The hotel is a destination in and of itself. You could wander for hours just exploring the grounds and taking in the peaceful surroundings. You really have a sense of place when you're inside the hotel. There is a wonderful spa as well. The dining and bar options are very nice too. Breakfast was out of this world!!!!

Palacio Nazarenas will not disappoint anyone. It is the perfect place to stay in Cusco. The location can't be beat, and it is wonderful in every way. I can't wait to visit again some day. Do yourself a favor and stay there - I assure you it will be unforgettable!

Superb hotel in the middle of the bustling historic part of town, but an absolute oasis inside the gates. The only swimming pool in town right next to the bar and restaurant, in a separate courtyard.

Ask for rooms 101 / 103, amazing.
