Palacio del Inka, a Luxury Collection Hotel

Passing the entrance of the great Inka Palace, one is instinctively looking for a ticket booth or an information desk. That's because — thanks to the Spanish colonial architecture, old stone walls, gold-plated art, a sample of old hand-painted cabinets and, of course, a location in front of the Temple of the Sun in the historic heart of Cusco - enter the This elegant hotel lobby feels like being inside a museum.
The impulse to buy a ticket and register to participate in a guided tour is understandable. After all, it is one of the most historically important buildings in all of Cusco - which is little to say for a city with a long and interesting long history that includes the Inca civilization and the conquest of the Spaniards. This 16th-century palace, built by the Spanish conqueror Pizarro, was built on top of the ruins of an Inca temple. Today, the building not only contains the balcony where Pizarro addressed the crowds located on the street (which can be accessed by those guests who have the opportunity to stay in the Inti Suite) but also a section of original Inca walls, one that runs parallel to the living room on the first floor, open to all guests.

The update of the Inka Palace is special not only because of the way it seeks to preserve the past. It's also the way designers have been inspired by the rich heritage of both the building in particular and this area of ​​Peru in general — to create an environment that is both romantically old and refreshingly contemporary. This is, in short, the difference between the hotel before and after the renovation.
Inka Palace Suite
No more than generic luxury hotel furniture and neutral colors, it now has a variety of gloriously unique decorative details. Observe the exquisite hand-painted walls and ceilings: they are the result of hours of work by local artisans. Notice the splendid frames of beds and columns bathed in gold that surround the luxury beds of the Luxury Collection, and the motifs of the Inca cross as well as the bedside tables based on the model of a much larger antique table (in the corridor of the first floor), original property. The look is glamorous but fresh, almost capricious - perhaps unlike any hotel interior, you have ever seen.
The spacious property contains several buildings, with the most charming rooms in the oldest section, built around a beautiful central courtyard. With so many stairs, corridors, corners, and recesses, there is evocative magic about the place, despite its size - even if you are staying in a standard room (here a 'superior room'), you probably have a view of a pretty patio or the roofs Terracotta city.

Liberator Inka courtyard Palace
In all rooms and suites, there are large LED televisions, iPod docks, and modern bathrooms with Gilchrist & Soames products. The suites, from junior to presidential, offer features such as a separate living room and dining room, large dressing rooms, and private balconies.
The buffet breakfast of the Inka Palace in Inti Raymi, the hotel restaurant, is tailored to a king, Spanish or not, with a wide range of Peruvian and international dishes as well as a good à la carte menu. To appreciate the architecture, which seems out of a fairy tale, ask for a table on the sunny porch that overlooks the courtyard. The same space is transformed with candles at night, a perfect opportunity to try something from the list of bold dishes inspired by the Andes (want alpaca medallions?) Or classic ceviches.
Below, the Inka Palace spa offers relaxing treatments as well as a cozy relaxation room where small stars on the roof remind of the starry sky of Cusco. Do not forget that the planning of the city was partly designed by the constellations seen by the Incas.
