The Central Highlands Hotel Reviews
Accommodations in the central highlands lean toward the very basic. Only the largest properties have hot water, TVs, phones, and private baths, and almost none have (or require) air-conditioning. If you don't need pampering, and you don't expect top-quality service, you'll travel easily—and cheaply. The majority of hotels have clean, modest rooms with simple Andean motifs. Bathrooms usually have showers only, and you should confirm that the hot water does function before paying for a room. Most hotels have a restaurant, or at least a dining room with some type of food service. If you want a homestay experience, ask your hotel or a local travel company, who can often hook you up with hosts in the area.
Rooms are usually available, but if you'll be traveling during the region's popular Semana Santa (Holy Week) or Fiestas Patrias (July 28), book tours and hotels early. Also book early around the anniversary of the Battle of Ayacucho in mid-December.
