“Wonderful experience -- truly lovely hotel”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Wonderful hotel in Cusco! SPG does it again.
- Great service
- Great food
- Gorgeous building (palace converted to hotel)
- Wonderful location
- Large staff with great attitude

Our standard room was just that...standard. But hotel itself is gorgeous. Check-in and check-out could be done a bit faster. And it would be nice if internet would be included in the rate.

Would certainly recommend to family and friends!

The hotel is so beautiful, personnel is so very kind, food is really really good. Amenities are awesome. Location is great. This review looks too good to be true, but my experience was so good that it deserves a perfect 10!!! Next time I would like to stay more time in that hotel

After long hours of travel we arrived at this nice place, got some tea and hoped to quickly relax.

The reception desk was a disappointment. They took our passports and then let us fill for everyone registration forms. So we had to ask our passports back to have the numbers. I think in such a hotel they should fill the forms and have them signed by us only. It took us almost 30 minutes for the complete check in. Their work seems disorganized.
They asked for my Starwood number although they had received it by mail before.

The stay itself was pleasant. Very good breakfast with a lot of choices, good food in the restaurant. Also the service was very attentive.

The rooms are very nice and quiet. WiFi in the room with extra charge is ridiculous.

Also an extra charge for the Spa area I cannot understand.

If you do not ask for later check out they expect you out at 9:00 am. This is very early.

Unfortunately the check out again took almost 45 minutes. For the second time they had misplaced my Starwood number. I have no idea why it took so long.

It is a very nice hotel, but they definitely have to improve their reception desk and some smaller things.

Four of us have reservations for next May and have try to inquire about oxygen availability in the hotel. We started the process through the Starwood central reservation number and have waited for more than a week with no response. Since the manager of this hotel seems to answer every review, I am hoping he can answer this simple but important question.

Thank you,

Seniority comes to mind when you enter the place. Dark furniture along a shinny coca tea pot while waiting to check in is a momentum. Nice fixtures in the room are worldwide standard, but sorry to say, that design and comfort are not its strength. A cubicle shower that doesn't let you move freely to pour shampoo or toilet paper out 3 feet away are just a few issues the hotel needs to address. A comfortable junior suite with only two drawers makes you wonder the type of hotel you are in. Hotel personnel indeed makes up for the ill designed hotel.

The hotel location was fantastic, beside the Qorikancha and about 5 minutes walk away from the Plaza de Armas. The free hot water in the lobby and coca tea was a nice touch and helped us get over the altitude acclamatization better. We ate at both the restaurant and the bar, food was great at both places.

Our very memorable stay at Palacio del Inca made our trip to Cusco so enjoyable. The property is beautifully decorated, impeccably maintained and cleaned and very well managed. The rooms seemed to be very recently re-decorated and fresh. The service was 5 star all the way, from the very polite and welcoming doormen to the very helpful front desk staff to the knowledgeable concierge team (thank you Erika and Roger for being so helpful with shows and restaurant recommendations and reservations) to the nice gentlemen who brought oxygen to our room a few times the first day given altitude effects. When we requested to move one our rooms due to street noise, they were kind enough to give us a complimentary upgrade as no other rooms were open. The location right in the heart of Cusco, across the street from the not to be missed Koricancha and Santo Domingo Church, is superb. Bottled water and coco tea are always available. There is also a lovely spa on site. I highly recommend this property!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, request a room on the interior courtyard. The ones facing the street c...
