Hotels in Peru

Jump to last reply

Hi - We are finalizing an itinerary in Peru in June and our travel agent is running into lots of problems with hotel rooms. We haven't tried all of these ourselves as most have limited websites (need to request and they will email you back, and I didn't want to confuse matters if our agent is already "holding" rooms in our name) and limited English skills by phone.

Anyway, we are traveling with our son (age 9) so there will be three of us. It seems this is quite unusual where we are going and we need to get a "suite for 3" (not sure if this is a fancy way of saying "room" or if it really is a suite?)

Is this common or does something not sound right? I honestly think in some cases we might be better off with two rooms if the "suite" is so pricey. And I don't get why we can't put 3 in a normal room, although a lot give you the option of one double or two twins, so maybe everything is just really small..

Our hotels are:

Lima - Ramada at the airport (sounds gross but we arrive at 11pm and leave at 9:45 am the next day - it does not seem like there are any better options within say 15 min taxi ride?)
Urubamba Valley - Hotel Sol y Luna (this seems to be a standard room)
Machu Picchu - Sanctuary Lodge (please say this place is worth it - the fee for the rollaway bed is what I would pay for an entire hotel room!)
Ollantaytambo - Casa Cartagena
Puno - Casa Andina Private Collection

Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks!
