Some of the hotels in the area include Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza and El Balcon.
  • Looking to take in a bit of local culture during your time in Cusco? Perhaps you should look for a hotel in the San Blas area then. The area is famed for its calles which are small cobbled streets that in many cases date back to colonial times. Along these streets, visitors will find many small boutique shops and local craftsmen along with a range of hotels like Estancia San Blas.
