Bohemian San Blas District
Nestled into the heart of Cusco’s bohemian San Blas district, Quinta San Blas offers a unique hotel stay in one the oldest neighborhoods in the former Inca capital. Previously a colonial-republican house during the era of the Viceroyalty of Peru, this historic property was meticulously renovated and restored and is now one of Cusco’s most interesting boutiques. Like all of Ananay’s properties, Quinta San Blas has a distinctive Peruvian character and an embracing staff that makes you feel right at home.
Unlike other tourist-laden hotels in Cusco, this lesser-known gem offers a privileged stay in the heart of Cusco’s bohemian San Blas district. Guests at this exclusive boutique hotel are able to walk outside and take a stroll down the street to the oldest church in the city, passing by local artists and sculptors selling their wares along the way.
Former Viceroyal Mansion
Though the style of Quinta San Blas undoubtedly reflects Cusco’s prevailing colonial Spanish architecture, the building itself is a historical monument. This former Viceroyal mansion now offers 16 high standard Deluxe Rooms, two Junior Suites, and one Single Room decorated by an acclaimed Peruvian interior designer. Gathered around a courtyard containing various styles of Andean rockwork and landscaping, each room has its own distinct layout and furnishings, a reflection of the artistic aura that characterizes the San Blas District.
Spanish Colonial Influence
Inspired by Spanish colonial and indigenous influences from centuries past, this former Andean home embodies the unique history of this incredible city. Like the amalgamated Inca walls that line Cusco’s cobblestone streets, Quinta San Blas is a live representation of the extraordinary story that transpired centuries ago. Whether you are seeking an intimate retreat with your significant other or a place to relax after a journey on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, this authentic Cusco boutique is the perfect gateway to one of the most enticing cities in Latin America.
