One of Cusco's top hotels, this beautifully restored 1592 monastery of San Antonio Abad is a national historic monument. Planners managed to retain the austere beauty of the complex—the lodging even counts the original chapel with its ornate gold altar and collection of Cusqueño art—yet updated the compact rooms with stylish colonial furnishings and all the mod-cons such as remote-operated window blinds and TVs that pop out of cabinet tops. The public spaces such
as the elegant lounge bar and serene cloisters will take your breath away. For those having trouble adjusting to the altitude the hotel offers an in-room oxygen enrichment service. For around S/140 per night you can elect to have your room pressurized with a flow of enriched oxygen, duplicating conditions of those 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) lower than Cusco.
