FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CUSCO & PERU
What is the price of a hotel in Cusco?
Cusco has hostels and hotels in all price categories
and all qualities. If you are on a tiny budget, you
can definitely get something cheap and hopefully not
too nasty. ($ 3 per bed per night, probably with cold
water). If you have some more money to spend, there
are really beautiful places where you can spend a few
lovely days in Cusco for between $ 25 - $ 120 per double
room average. For those who want to make the most out
of their stay in Peru : there are impressive 5 star
hotels that charge between $ 200 - $ 350 per single
Do I need to book a hotel before getting to Cusco?
We will definitely recommend you to book a hotel before
arriving, if we are talking about June and July. During
the rest of the year, you can take the risk of arriving
and doing some “shopping” before taking your decision,
if you think you can get a better deal this way (only
for the lower priced hotels). However, this is not
always true. Sometimes the best deals are offered on
the internet or through agencies and not when you are
standing in front of the person, tired, after a long
trip and your suitcase on the street. If you are
booking a three star hotel, we do recommend you to
book in advance.
If you doubt, what you can do is book a hotel for the
first one or two days, and have a look around before
extending your stay at that place (or not). Please
note that booking can be made only in hotels with at
least two stars. The backpacker hang-outs normally
do not take any bookings.
