I can only repeat what so many others have written here, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, with all of the amenities to match. You are in former monastery (note that the entrance mat reads Established 1692) with stunning grounds, awesome dining & bar areas, beautiful chapel. The rooms are no smaller than in many European hotels w/ the same price point and they are delightfully furnished in a style compatible with the monastery. Check the hotel's website for photos if you think you might not enjoy such surroundings. Otherwise, enjoy all of the extras (including the world's fluffiest towels!), the fine food and even finer service. Your location is perfect for checking out the shops and museums and the concierge service is, as expected, first rate.
Note - in our group, every one of us encountered altitude sickness at some point on our 12 day trip, regardless of whether we took meds, and for me requesting a room here with extra oxygen really helped.
