More a house than a hotel, the welcoming staff invite you to feel at home in this beautifully restored twelfth-century manor, once part of the complex where the Inca ruler Pachacutec lived. Located in Cusco’s Santo Domingo Plaza, it’s near to the Cusicancha, Qoricancha, Plaza de Armas (main square) and other attractions of the city – offering the perfect base to explore on foot. The charming boutique hotel is one of Good Life Expeditions carefully selected Cusco hotel recommendations.
Abittare in Cusco
In addition to its Inca roots, as you explore the hotel, it’s later colonial and republican-era heritage is also revealed. The typical central courtyard with its columns and original stone floor offers outdoor seating and a fire pit for the cooler evenings.
Relaxation and comfort are the priorities in the 44 guest rooms, including two junior suites and one full suite, arranged around the quiet central courtyard. All rooms feature fresh modern décor, with small touches paying homage to the building’s Incan past. Rooms are heated, offer plush bedding, high speed Wi-Fi, led TVs, safety deposit boxes, and organic toiletries in the en-suite bathrooms.
Superior Double rooms are roomy with two Queen sized beds, so can accommodate up to four people – a good choice for families. The top-level suite directly faces the Qoricancha – an added wow factor along with the spacious accommodations, separate lounge area and small balcony.
An Andean breakfast spread is served from 6am, including eggs, charcuterie, cereals, fruit, yogurt, coffee, freshly baked Cusco bread and more. While there is no on-site restaurant, there are many excellent choices just a few steps away.
