When it comes to looking for where to stay in Peru, you’ll have the obstacle of choice –there’s lot to offer! Here’s a few of my top places to stay in Peru.
Hundreds of hotels can be found in Peru. This is in part because of the famous Machu Picchu which attracts thousands of visitors every year.
I’m not kidding. There are at least 5,000 people that visit this place in a day! Because of that, a large number of hotels, B&Bs, and guest houses have sprouted up in Peru over the years.
Figuring out where to stay in Peru isn’t an easy task. In this post I cover basic Peru accommodation like hostels, right through to luxury Peru hotels.
Accommodations in Peru are targeted towards international travellers so you won’t have a hard time finding a place that will suit your needs here. Here are some hotels that I highly recommend.
Near the Airport
Manhattan Inn is one of the best hotels in Peru near the airport, just a 5-minute drive away. If you’re on a layover or you’d like to figure out where to stay in Peru as soon as you arrive –somewhere convenient after your arrival, this place offers great accommodations to rest your head.
The rooms are spacious and equipped with a television, minibar, and telephone. You can visit the Aventura mall nearby where there’s shops, restaurants, and a movie house.
Planning to visit Ballestas Island? Stay a night at the Hotel Paracas which is just a boat ride away from the island. You are better off staying here for the night(s) since not only is it safe but it’s also a pleasant place compared to the other accommodations in the island.
Hotel Paracas is a luxury hotel where you can enjoy amazing amenities such as the beach villa, swimming pool, kids club, and restaurant. Enjoy the spectacular sunset along the beach or take a walk along the picturesque harbour.
If you’re looking for where to stay in Peru and you’re on a budget, you may want to explore some of their hostels.
A popular choice among backpackers is Loki Hostel. It currently has three locations with the best one being Cusco. It’s housed in a 450-year old building and can accommodate as many as 200 people!
Like many hostels, big parties are a big deal here so expect themed events every night as well as happy hours at least three times a day. There’s free breakfast in the morning as well as an array of meal choices for lunch and dinner. Stay here if you’d like a memorable but budget-friendly stay in Peru.
Another budget hostel is Hostal Corihuasi featuring rustic-style rooms housed within a maze-like colonial building. Go to the rooftop for breathtaking views of Cusco or stay in to enjoy the cosy warmth of the fireplace. Each room has its own private bath, TV, heater, safety deposit box, and alpaca-wool blankets.
Situated right at the centre of Cusco, just a few metres away from the main square is Casa Andina. This boutique hotel features 9 elegant, spacious rooms designed in contemporary style by the famous Peruvian designer, Elena Testino. The limited number of rooms allow the staff to provide guests personalized service, from takeouts to tours. There’s not a request too big not to fulfill.
Casa Andina is a classy, modern hotel with 5 locations to choose from.
The best one is situated in Cusco featuring colonial-style architecture and a beautiful courtyard. Spend your afternoons here or opt to walk around the area exploring the attractions such as the Koricancha Temple and the Plaza de Armas. In the hotel are spacious rooms each with their own television, desk, refrigerator, and heating.
Wild Olive is a colonial family house turned guest house in Huacachina, just a few meters away from the lagoon. It has a cosy atmosphere that make guests feel right at home.
Facilities include a kitchen, living room, an onsite Italian restaurant, bar, and swimming pool access. It’s also close to nightlife spots. Wild Olive has a place to stay for all kinds of travelers whether you’re a couple, family, or solo backpacker.
