Refurbished in authentic Cusqueño style, this 18th century colonial house was Peru’s first boutique hotel. With its rustic décor and traditional weavings, Casa San Blas combines comfort and fine design.

Ideally located in the historic artisans’ quarter of San Blas, close to the city’s main square, the hotel allows you to immerse yourself immediately in Cusco’s unique blend of Spanish and Inca culture. The large third-floor terrace offers stunning views of the city by day or by night. 

The hotel has a total of 18 rooms:  12 standard rooms are located on the first and second floors with views of the internal courtyards. Each room is furnished with double-thickness curtains to help maintain the temperature, custom-made beds with luxurious quilts, pillows and bedding, an elegant private bathroom, IDD telephone, heater, safe deposit box, complimentary wireless high-speed internet access, bathrobes and a hairdryer. All rooms have hand-carved rustic furniture plus, as well as having a number, each one has a Quechua name that reflects a traditional symbol or motif that appears in the handwoven textile displayed inside.

The uppermost floor has four suite apartments with panoramic views of the city, which open onto a large roof terrace. There is a combination of loft and single floor apartments, each with its own sitting area and full kitchenette complete with cooker, microwave oven, tea and coffee-making facilities and flat-screen TV. There is also a Junior Suite and a Senior Suite. The hotel restaurant serves a buffet breakfast and à la carte dinner. Replace this text with any text that needs to read on from the above paragraph.
