We just returned from 3 nights at the lovely Hotel Monasterio. We were greeted at the front door by the very professional and friendly Gustavio (Alfonso) who escorted us to an upgraded junior suite. Our last night we were upgraded to one of the two royal suites. I highly recommend paying the extra $$$ for the royal suite. It is one level with a private patio and a shared large interior beautiful garden. I visit the bathroom several times a night and found the two level junior suite with the bedroom upstairs and bathroom downstairs slightly more difficult for this reason. The grounds are lovely and the background monk chanting music is very cool. We had dinner Tuesday evening in theback corner restaurant which was "Opera" night. The opera singers were outstanding and the acoustics in the high ceiling stucco restaurant made the performance that much more outstanding. The food in this restaurant was good although the food in the outdoor and "other" restaurant was better, including the breakfast buffet. The hotel location is excellent, close to the square and cathedral, and across from the Inka Museum and the wonderful Map restaurant. Gustavo went above and beyond to help us arrange plans, even calling a restaurant and driver in Lima to pick us up at the airport and take us to dinner! He called us upon arrival in Lima to make sure we had arrived and to confirm the logistics with the driver. The front desk, lobby and wait staff at this hotel were very professional and friendly. We loved the ambiance at this hotel...an old monastery updated without taking away from the character of what this structure once was!
