When Do You Want To Go?

Hotel El Retablo is a great value boutique hotel located in the heart of Cusco. 

El Retablo is a charming 3-star boutique hotel in the heart of Cusco. Located just a few miles from Alejandro Velasco Astete Airport, it’s the perfect place to begin your Peruvian adventure. With the sacred site of Machu Picchu on your doorstep and museums and ruins where you can delve into the Incan civilisation and city history, it’s easy to see why so many travellers make Cusco their first port of call in Peru.

El Retablo is a quirky two-storey hotel which celebrates the colourful traditions and culture of Cusco with guest bedrooms decorated by local artisans. The 17 guest rooms consist of superior double or deluxe rooms each with comfortable beds, safety deposit box, personal computer and views over the garden or city rooftops. Each room is equipped with a private bathroom with shower, toiletries and a hairdryer. WiFi is also available so you can keep in touch with family and friends back home.

Breakfast is served within the hotel and there are several exceptional restaurants and bars within a short walk of El Retablo serving dishes ranging from Peruvian to International and even vegan cuisine!

Not only is Cusco the gateway city to the ancient mountain city of Machu Picchu, there are also museums, archaeological sites and temples to explore. If you have a little time, why not take a trip to Inkilltambo? The hike takes you through the artsy neighbourhood of San Blas to three Incan archaeological sites including Temple of the Moon, Kusilluchayoc and Inkilltambo. Alternatively, immerse yourself in Peruvian culture and shop like a local at San Pedro Market. With tasty food, local handicrafts and woven textiles on offer, this colourful market is a great starting point for your Peruvian expedition.
