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.
A block block from the historic Plaza de Armas, the latest carbon-neutral property from Peruvian hotel group Inkaterra is secreted behind a massive green door on tiny Plazuela Las Nazarenas, which it shares with the famous Hotel Monasterio and the Museo de Arte Precolombino.
Adjacent to the Paracas Nature Reserve on Peru’s central coast, this resort hotel offers beach views of the protected reserve’s coastline. The 120 bright and spacious rooms feature bamboo walls, decorative Incan textiles, and private terraces.

The exceptionality of Marriott's Lima property is apparent from a distance: it’s housed in an eye-catching 25-story glass tower that was built, optical illusion-style, by the US-based Arquitectonica to resemble an enormous arch.
A façade decorated with eucalyptus branches marks the entrance to Inkaterra's 2010 property, a more affordable alternative to the group's Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel.
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.
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.
The hotel has one of the city’s best rooftop infinity pools and panoramic views of the Pacific from the private in-room balconies.
