“Charming Luxurious and Romantic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Loved our experience staying here. It was in the center of Cusco within walking distance to the main Plaza and next to the beautiful Santo Domingo Cathedral. The staff were amazing, helpful trying their very best to please you. Food at the hotel was great, gourmet level. Breakfast buffet was lovely. The setting is amazing. So so tastefully done. Message and Spa were perfect. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for view of the Cathedral.

Since Check they greeted us like VIP's
Carlos Fernandez Baca really made everything in his power to make us feel at home, and his recommendations proved priceless.
Take the Pisco introduction class at the hotel Bar, is a great way to understand about the Pisco drink and to taste it
Keep the good Job, Carlos you really made a difference as my wife and I celebrated are anniversary.
Highly recommended

My wife and I stayed for 4 night at Palacio during out trip to Cusco. The staff and the hotel were amazing. The concierge was very helpful in providing information about the city, attractions, day trips and helping us with recommendations and reservations on places to dine. We stayed in a Queen bed room, the room was spacious, clean and the amenities were top notch. They even arranged the airport pick up and drop off. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and quiet. Ask for upgrades to the colonial suites if available.

Beautiful hotel built on Inca ruins with great service by all of the hotel's staff, and close proximity to museums and archeological sites. The restaurant has great food and is a 5-star service all around.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

This amazing hotel helped make our honeymoon a dream come true. We spent four nights here before hiking the Inca Trail. We arrived at 7:30 am in the airport and were seamlessly picked up by a taxi driver arranged by the hotel. Then, they check us in as soon as we got to the hotel by asking for our passport and handling everything while we sipped coca tea. They even upgraded us to a junior suite because it was our honeymoon. The room was gorgeous just like the rest of the hotel. Yet, what really stood out beyond everything was the level of service that was provided in absolutely every part of the hotel. Specifically, Carlos the head concierge really made sure our stay was incredible. He answered all of our questions and told us where the places we wanted to see were and even helped us arrange a few tours at the last minute. Then, every time he saw us again he would ask how our day was and inquire what we saw that day. When we returned to the hotel after hiking the Inca Trail, Carlos even got us a room that we could use for a few hours to rearrange our belongings before our flight home and take a shower (at no charge). We also enjoyed meeting Johnathan and Jimmy in the restaurant, and Darcy at the bar. I honestly had never experienced such true five star service before. Also, as a comparison, we did stay two nights at the Inkaterra hotel in Aguas Calientes and the service and facilities at Palacio del Inka by far surpassed what we experienced at Inkaterra, not to mention Palacio del Inka was one third of the price.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cusco. Your stay will be memorable, the staff will make sure of it. I cannot thank them enough for going above and beyond to make our honeymoon great.

Palacio del Inka is built from an old Spanish mansion, but has all the modern comfort. It is conveniently located next to the Qorincancha in the heart of beautiful Cuzco.
Service is very attentive and responsive.
Rooms are comfortable with excellent bedding.
What else do you want?

Room Tip: Rooms on the inner patio have more light
