Where to Stay in Cusco, Peru

One of the best things about Cusco? There are plenty of places to stay. Since it’s one of the most popular tourist havens in Peru, you’re often spoilt for choice. The best part is that despite how popular the city is, the prices are usually affordable and you have options from $12 USD hostels to the 5-star hotel you dream about.

El Balcon

Tambo de Montero 222

There’s a reason this hotel is so popular among guests. As a converted 17th-century villa, it has kept all of its old charms and the details that make it one of the more unique places to stay. However, the price is also affordable, and it doesn’t feel stuffy or pretentious. You might never want to leave your bed.

Located a bit away from the city center, this spot offers great rooms for reasonable prices if you’re willing to make the ten-minute walk into the city. It’s a great way to see a part of Cusco that you might not have if you weren’t staying there, and breakfast, great service, and help getting around is all included.

Hotel Killa House

Av. Tullumayo 279

+51 84 234107

Hotel Killa is the ideal place for those who like comfort, but aren’t necessarily willing to pay for it. They have delicious beds worth falling into and serve as a haven after a busy day walking and seeing the sites. Rooms are small, but intimate—so perfect for couples enjoying some time on their own.

Yawarmaki Hotel

Pantac Calle 131

+51 84 226326

Price is the first concern at the Yawarmaki Hotel, which is known for offering clean rooms for backpackers, trail enthusiasts, and those on a budget. If you want a no-frills experience, this hotel puts you right downtown and offers close proximity to most of the sites that you would want to see.

Inka’s Tambo Hotel

Urb. Quispicanchi C-4, Av. Brazil

+51 980 843 560

Great service and comfort are the points of interest here. While some of the beds are pretty bare bones, the lobby is worth visiting alone and offers great service for guests. If you don’t mind being a little bit away from the humdrum of Cusco, then it can serve as a nice, clean resting place whether you are traveling solo or with friends.
