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.
