Hotels in Peru
Most hotels in Peru are relatively inexpensive. The county is a good place to travel on a budget, and it’s possible to book a shared room at many Peru hotels for less than $10 a night, while private rooms at 2 and even 3 star establishments can be booked for as little as $30 a night. If booked far enough in advance, it’s even possible to find a room at a cushy five star hotel for less than $70 a night.
There are also a number of internationally renowned five-star hotels in Peru located in the country’s major urban centers. Vacationers looking for the ultimate luxury Peruvian getaway should check out the Country Club Lima Hotel. Considered to be one of the best hotels in Peru, the Country Club Lima hotel is housed in a 1927 building constructed in the Spanish tradition, with wood beam ceilings and colorful tiled floors. The hotel boasts an array of amenities, including an outdoor pool, full-service spa and restaurant that serves a daily breakfast buffet complete with Peruvian delicacies.
The 1927 Country Club is where France’s former president Charles de Gaulle once spent the night. The colonial-style building has been converted into the 83-room hotel filled with Peruvian art from Lima’s Museo Pedro de Osma, brocade-covered chairs, gilt mirrors, and mahogany armoires.
Inkaterra's Machu Picchu lodge, nestled in the cloud forest below the Incan ruins, is a welcoming, sustainability-focused hotel a short bus ride from the famed archeological site.
Everything feels oversize here. Whitewashed arches tower above wide porches. King-size beds and massive armoires don't begin to fill the vast rooms. Although San José is a simple hotel, its amenities—an attractive pool, tasty food, and pleasant service—add flair.
Located in the heart of the Sacred Valley, one hour from Cusco, this leisure hotel (which opened in 2010) features eco-inspired décor of thatched reeds, light woods, and woven furniture. The 128 rooms have gorgeous views of the Andes and Vilcanota River.
Machu Picchu’s remote mountaintop ruins feel amazingly accessible when you’re staying next door; the Sanctuary Lodge (part of the Orient-Express group) is the only hotel to abut the 15th-century ancient Incan site.
Located in the formerly rustic Parador del Colca, the original seven-room lodge now houses Las Casitas' handsome reception, bar, and restaurant.
Forty-five minutes by boat directly from Puerto Maldonado, this lodge is more accessible and luxurious than the others in the area, but the surrounding jungle is tamer. Guests stay in individual bungalows, and there's a spectacular treetop canopy walk.
This business hotel in Lima’s financial district is smartly situated just across from the 18-hole San Isidro Golf Club (for a networking round or two). The 54 rooms here are sparse, with low wood headboards, minimal local artwork, and views of the city skyline.
The 33-year-old Miraflores Cesar’s Hotel was the place to stay in its heyday, but a much-needed makeover transformed it into the more modern Casa Andina Private Collection Miraflores.
The hotel has one of the city’s best rooftop infinity pools and panoramic views of the Pacific from the private in-room balconies.
