Located in the heart of the “Imperial City” of Cusco, Hotel Arqueologo is just a five minute walk from the town’s main square. The hotel is perfectly immersed in the bohemian neighborhood of San Cristobal which includes vibrant cafes, street artisans, narrow cobblestone streets, colonial balconies and baroque style chapels.
Situated at 3,350 m. above sea level, Cusco is the oldest inhabited city of the Americas and today’s archaeological capital of the Americas. Once the heart of the grand Incan Empire, the magnificent city of Cusco today, is by far a world´s top destination. The gateway to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, this city thriving with colonial influence was built on the hefty stone foundations of the Incas. Massive Inca-built walls line steep, narrow cobblestone streets and the lovely plazas are many and abound. Here you’ll have the opportunity to step back in time to an ancient culture that harmoniously manages to combine its historic traditions with today’s modern landscape.
“The Ancient Lost City” is the paramount sacred site of the Incas. Lost for almost 500 years, this mysterious city that is deeply embedded in the Andean jungle was finally discovered by famous Yale historian, Hiram Bingham in 1911. Whether you trek the famous Inca Trail or ride in style via train to this fascinating site, you will have the opportunity to visit other enchanting ruins including those of Sacsayhuaman, Pisaq, Chincheros, and Ollantaytambo, Moray, and the salt fields of Mares; all of which are easily accessible from our hotel.
