Stepping in to the tranquil oasis of Casa Cartagena always makes an impact. Stylish, modern design features blend effortlessly with the rich history of the building, former residence of a number of notable figures in 16th century Cusco. All suites are supremely comfortable, with private balconies overlook immaculate central gardens which are interspersed with fountains and striking sculptures. There is a sumptuous spa if you are looking to treat yourselves, as well as a small, well-equipped fitness room. Breakfast is always a treat at Casa Cartagena and, when you are eventually ready to head out exploring, the attractions of the main square as well as the artisan San Blas neighbourhood are within very easy reach.
