While we had our two day trip to Puno/Lake Titicaca, the hotel stored our large bags and had them ready for us on our return. The rooms...

We were on a 3-week tour of Peru and Bolivia and stayed in three hotels in the Taypikala chain. They were all, BY FAR, the best hotels of our trip. Each one was 4-5 stars by American standards. Hotel Taypikala in Cusco is the flagship hotel and is located within walking distance of many local restaurants and historical sites. All...

This was exactly what we needed in between Lima and Machu Picchu. It's a great location, near shopping etc. and they provide great service. Not only do they have an oxygen mask ready if you need it, but they also have an urn of coca tea, and in the basement a selection of fruit that is free of charge. Our...

The location was excellent for exploring cusco. The staff was so nice and accommodating. They held our bags for us while we were gone and even made up boxed breakfasts that we could take with us when we had to leave extremely early to start our trek in the Andes. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious. The...
