Best Places To Stay In Cuzco

Cusco is a tourist hub, and as such there are many hotels from which to select. As a general rule there are around 10 to 15 very good options that range in budget and location. The best options are located around or close to the main square (Plaza de Armas), or within walking distance of it. All of the hotels in Cusco have a local design to them and they range in size and level of luxury. We love and know Cusco really well so please do get in touch to speak to us about the best hotel for your Peru holiday.
