An upscale option at a fraction of the price of some Cusco lodgings, this hotel, now a Costa del Sol by Ramada, mixes the best of the new and old Cusco. The front half drips with colonial charm—rooms are set around an attractive arcaded courtyard in the 17th-century former home of the Marquis of Picoaga. This is the section to choose if you want that historic feel. Two family-friendly suites are perfect for people traveling with children. Behind is a new wing with modern
rooms that have minimalist design but are big on comfort. The old rooftop bar has been converted into three rooms with the best views in the house.
