Empire of the Incas

There are a wide range of hotel choices. We usually recommend very comfortable tourist-superior hotels, chosen for their location and service. But you can choose whichever level/style/price-point that you prefer. All hotels have private bath, reliable hot water, and include breakfast.  

Hotel José Antonio (Lima)

This 84-room tourist-superior hotel boasts a great location in the exclusive district of Miraflores, just four blocks from the Pacific Ocean boardwalk and the popular LarcoMar Center. Guests may stroll up to the Parque Kennedy, the social heart of Miraflores, with its lively cafe and restaurant scene and shopping opportunities.

Maison D'Elise The Maison d'Elise Hotel is an attractive mix of colonial and Mediterranean style architecture. All the rooms have private bathrooms, telephone, cable TV and fridge as well as a private terrace. There's a nice lawn with a small pool, and also good views of Misti Volcano. Hotel Taypikala Lago

This lakeside hotel is located in a small picturesque village called Chucuito about 20 minutes from Puno. Enjoy fabulous views over Lake Titicaca while enjoying dinner in their excellent restaurant.

Taquile Island Homestay

Taquile Island families began offering homestays in the early 1980's.  Participating families added a dedicated bedroom to their adobe and stone house compounds.  These simple rooms include two beds with mattresses made of totora reed harvested from the lake;  woolen blankets, and homespun cotton sheets.  Dinner and breakfast may be provided by the family, or visitors may eat in the village.   Water is provided in ceramic jugs drawn from a well.  Visitors use outhouses located adjacent to the house compound.   The views to the star-filled sky at night, and to the 20,000-foot peaks of the Royal Range add to the experience of peace and tranquility.

Hotel Taypikala Cuzco

Hotel Taypikala's location on a quiet cul de sac behind the famous convent of the Qorikancha affords guests a welcome respite from Cuzco's noisy streets.  Yet you're just three blocks from the Plaza de Armas, an easy stroll to all the popular tourist services. The colonial style of the hotel and the Andean style interior decor create an atmosphere that invites you to relax. The patio is the ideal place for sunbathing or on mild summer nights to enjoy a glass of wine or a steaming cup of coffee in the romantic glow of torches.
