Cuesta Serena Boutique Hotel: Huaraz´s Best and Most Beautiful Hotel!

I stayed at Cuesta Serena Boutique hotel with my girlfriend in May 2013 and we can both say that this was one of the highlights of our travels around South America. We arrived in Huaraz and within a short 20min taxi ride we were in the most idyllic countryside with incredible views of the Cordillera Blanca and Negra.

The hotel itself is tucked away off the side of the main road up on a hill, perfectly positioned to relax and enjoy the views of all the surrounding peaks and mountains. Upon arriving you immediately get the sense that you are entering someone´s home not a hotel. The hotel is beautifully furnished and the interior design and finishing touches give it a warm, friendly and Andean atmosphere.

The owner only reinforced our first impressions and was very attentive to our needs and made us feel that she genuinely cared about us and wanted to make our stay as special as could be. The dogs that also live at the lodge are adorable and very friendly and only add to family feel that you have when staying there and quickly become a part of daily life.

The room that we stayed in was just as beautiful and full of character as the rest of hotel. Waking up in the morning to see the sun rising over the mountains with the towering Huascarán peaks in the background is something i shall never forget. The breakfast was also great as you can sit and really relax and forget all you stresses as you look over the valley.

We spent much time walking around the garden and admiring the flowers and wildlife and even tried a yoga session which couldn´t have be in a better spot to do it. Then, if that wasn´t enough we indulged ourselves with massage before sitting down to a lovely three course meal that they prepared from their own organic vegetable garden.

I highly recommend this place as "The Hotel" to stay at when visiting Huaraz. It´s a peaceful place where you can really just appreciate the natural surroundings. It´s also the perfect option if you are returning from a trek as your body can recover in the comfort and tranquility of the hotel.

I wish i could return sooner!

The swimming pool was much enjoyed as they sun was reasonably hot when we were there and so made a great way to cool down before relaxing in the hammocks and reading a book. They also have a traditional Andean stone oven and one evening we had the most delicious pizzas that were cooked there. I also recommend getting a massage!

A welcome retreat as the nightly rain begins

The room was excellent with furniture for your clothes (if you would like to unpack), a comfortable bed with a warm blanket, and a large bathroom with hot water. The owner was very nice and helpful and it was a welcome retreat. The only sign out front is a tiny one that says Hostel, so keep your eyes open.

"Alojamiento Soledad": My Home is your Home...

Once in Huaraz, Francisco (the owner) took us up on the bus station and invited us to drink a mate de coca, to get well with the altitude. From our room the outsight view to the mountains was excellent. The terrace upstairs is a dream for staying there with a beer....or two. We made the trekking-route Llanganuco-Santa Cruz, which was top-organized. Also our flight to Cuzco went well. At Alojamiento you might speak Spain, English, German or having yours first classes in Quechua - the old Inka language.

During your accomodation in the "Alojamiento Soledad" you'll enjoy the
familiar and friendly atmosphere. The Romero family is very open-minded and
could give you helpful information about the Cordillera Blanca, trekking
routes, flight tickets, tours and about how to find whatever thing easily in
Huaráz. Especially, flights and bus-tickets can be organised directly over
the connected travel agency, named Quenual-Tours.

The rooms of Alojamiento Soledad are nice and clean ones. A good breakfast
is included in the room price at USD 10. If you prefer to having your
breakfast outside, then the room price is at USD 6.

Alojamiento Soledad provides hot showers, laundry service and 2 terrazes.
One is downstairs and the upstairs one you'll find at the last floor. There
you have an excellent look around, over the tops of Huaráz, and a very good
look over to the highest mountain of Perú, the snow-white Huascarán(6.768m).

Last but not least: Don't miss sitting at night together with other
travellers or family members in the living room, in front of the sparkling
chimney, having a drink .... or two, there. Quite relaxing atmosphere.

El Farolito youth hostal: Super Cheap Hostal! The best attention in town

Reina the owner is very nice. The place is clean and has hot water. This is useful in Huaraz because even during the Summer the water is very cold, as if it came from the glaciars. Tell Raida that Janett Depaz referred to you for a special price. I told her I will tell all the VTs to visit her hostal.

The set up is very confortable. If you have a large group, they can accomodate you, just like any youth hostal. It is located very close to the Main square so you are within walking distance to everything.

Since it is recommended by the Lonely Planet it is very popular with motivated travelers, so if you are alone you could meet and join a group.

The hostal has a lot of info. The owner is an excellent hostess very cheerfull and keeps the place neat and clean. there is a laundry service. breakfast is included in your room rate. which runs about $5 usd.

there is a nice view to the river. and the river is within a walking distance (less than a block) from the hostal.

there is a convenience store next door and I even found a taylor close by. just take a model of what you want stiched and your material and it is done so cheapely that you will return for more.

Yerupaja Lodging House: Family run local b&b

This was recommended to us by the pension where we stayed at in Lima - we took an overnight bus from Lima and arrived in Huaraz at some ungodly hour in the morning when Mary Julca (the owner) picked us up. Every day she made a great breakfast, and her son Alex showed us around town, helped us choose a trekking company, and even took us to a local restaurant for guinea pig lunch. Stay here!

El Farolito: Cheap in Huaraz - Pas cher a Huaraz

Each room has hot water (ask the owner before having a shower, though) and is pretty large and clean.
A bit cold.
The owner is very nice especially with strangers.

Les chambres disposent de l'eau chaude (demandez la toutefois a la proprietaire) et sont plutot grandes et propres. Un peu froides.
La proprietaire adore les etrangers.

Cheap ! We bargained a bit and had our room for 20 soles (2 persons). Our friend Sharon has his own for 10 soles. No one is better in town.
The owner can provide you with breakfast (4 soles), laundry or anything you want (even information about tours).

Pas cher ! On a reussi a obtenir un prix de 20 soles par personne. Notre ami Sharon a paye 10 soles pour une chambre simple. On trouve difficilement mieux (mais, ca existe !). La proprietaire peut vous preparer un petit dej (4 soles), s'occuper de votre linge ou toute autre chose (dont des informations sur d'eventuelles excursions).

Casa de Carlos: Best home-stay accomodation in the world!

Once in Huaraz, I got the opportunity to stay at a family ran lodge called la 'Casa de Carlos' (email The accomodations are simple, clean, and basic. We got a large room with two beds and a shower right outside.

In the two or so weeks I spend in the Huaraz area they turned out to be the best hosts of any place I have stayed in this or any other trip. Although the facilities were simple, Carlos and Christian (the teenage boys that ran the place) make sure that we had everything we wanted. They gave me a quick tour around the market and town. Told me were to buy the best economical food, shown me were the best fruit juices are (a must in any town in S.A.). Not only that, when we ask him to show us where the movie theater was he laughed and said there was none, but came up with a TV and a VCR in a few minutes and set it up in our room upon demand. They even took us to the best and cheapest Video Club with the newest pirate/bootleg movies. I shared the large two-bed room with one of the crazy Aussies I had met in Chachapoyas at this place for about 2 weeks, on and off since we were doing several treks at times.
