Cheap and Cheerful Hotels ($20-$50 per night)
Quinua Villa Boutique (see reviews)
An example of Peruvian hospitality, this place is famous for its traditional decor and clean rooms.
Although there is an uphill climb to the Villa, you get rewarded with a view of the city from its quaint balcony.
A short walk from Plaza de Armes in the centre of Cusco, Ingrid's place offers a very welcome homely atmosphere of rest.
Rooms are super clean and the owners can help you with any requests you might have before your trek.
With very nice views over Plaza de Armas and Cusco, this place is very affordable and friendly.
It's a hostel, but it offers good communal kitchen facilities and serves simple but filling breakfast is also an option.
A tranquil oasis in the middle of the historic center with cozy rooms and charming garden. You can enjoy your free breakfast in a picturesque spot on the roof overlooking the streets of Cusco.

More Comfort Hotels ($50-$90 per night)
Close to all amenities, this highly decorated and refurbished hotel is definitely one of our favourites in Cusco centre.
Breakfast is both warm and cold, and rooms are just stunning, as is the courtyard. It's so well designed you won't believe you aren't in Europe.
For only about $80 you'll get one of the best prices for an oasis of luxury a stone throw away from the centre. All the rooms are renovated to very high standards and offer spacious modern design.
Breakfast is fantastic!
Casa Montesinos Boutique (see reviews)
Close to the centre, but neatly packed away from the tourist crowds this is truly a boutique hotel. But you'll be pleasantly surprised by the large size of its comfy beds. Enjoy the very well preserved old features of the house in the modern setting.
