The Rumi Punku Hotel is located in the historic center of Cusco, just a 5-minute walk from the Plaza de Armas, near the traditional neighborhood of San Blas on Choquechaca street. The hotel’s facade is an Inca Imperial manufacture, being one of the most beautiful and classic facades of Inca period in Cusco.
The property represents 3 major epochs of Peruvian History. The Inca period is represented by the facade of the Hotel and the Inca wall located in the interior part of the Hotel which is surrounded by a beautiful and peaceful garden. The colonial era is represented by the old Casona with Inca vestiges. Finally, the modern era is represented in the conservationist remodeling that was carried out, allowing us to provide the facilities, equipment, and comfort of a three-star hotel.
One of the main features of the architecture is the double jamb, that is, its double lintel and paraments forming an angle to double corner, a rare feature that is synonymous with nobility, superiority, and importance of the house an unmistakable stamp of Incan architecture. The Hotel’s name Rumi Punku is a Quechua word meaning “stone door”.
Our facade is considered Historical Monument of the city of Cusco by the Ministry of Culture. Due to a lot of hard work, we are now a three-star hotel. Recognized by the Tourism Office (Regional Tourism Office) as one of the best three-star hotels in Cusco, winning the Q’ente Award for the best quality of Tourism in 2010, 2011, 2012, & 2014.
