We stayed in Cusco for 3 nights then went to Mach Picchu before returning to Monasterio for one more night. The hotel is stunning but we all suffered with the altitude (headaches, breathless, fast heart rate but luckily no sickness) so we were very glad we had book the rooms with oxygen pumped into them! The hotel is stunning and well located for the best restaurants and the town square. Breakfast was wonderful and on the days when we had an early start, they open at 5 am and will also pack you up a breakfast/lunch box to take with you at no extra cost. The hotel looked after our luggage while we went to MP and on our return gave both couples a beautiful suite for our last night. The hotel restaurant was nice for dinner but not outstanding - we ate better and for less elsewhere, however on Tuesday and Thursday evenings they have music and an opera singer performing while you eat. Be warned though, it is very loud so ask for a table at the entrance end if you want to chat over dinner.
