In Cuzco a manor House from the Colonial Era becomes a boutique hotel

In Cuzco, Peru, a manor house from the colonial era, becomes an exclusive boutique hotel, designed by Denise Guislain-Koechlin

The project of the boutique hotel Inkaterra La Casona preserves the original architecture of the building and, thanks to a careful restoration, brings back to life the meeting of ancient cultures and local traditions, through the centuries.

The hotel consists of eleven suites, surrounding the central patio, a Yacu therapy room, a restaurant and a lounge bar.


All suites at Inkaterra La Casona, featuring the original exposed beams and large stone fireplaces, are furnished with antiques and traditional fabrics, combined with the contemporary comfort of a boutique hotel, such as heated floors and extra-large bathtubs.

The two main halls are furnished with colonial furniture, Pre-Columbian textiles and original mural paintings that, together with stone walls and exposed beams, offer the guests an environment rich in history, traditions and cultures.[Text Arianna Callocchia – Photo courtesy of Inkaterra La Casona]
