A boutique hotel a short walk from Cusco’s main square.

The X.O Art Hotel is owned and operated by one of Peru’s luxury trekking specialists, who pride themselves on their impeccable service and warm hospitality. The property is a converted casona, a large traditional home from the Spanish colonial era, and is in San Blas, Cusco’s flourishing arts quarter.

The seven rooms are individually decorated and showcase the works of notable contemporary Cusquenan artists while offering comfortable accommodation and high-tech amenities.
