Accommodations in Cusco, Peru
Our Peru trip was fast and furious with most of our time spent on the Inca Trail. That being said, we had to find cheap and easily accessible accommodations for our time on either side of the trail. In total, we had 5 night we needed places to stay and ended up staying at 4 locations. The Niños Hotel in Cusco deserved to be shown!
Niños Hotel on Calle Fierro (there are 2 Niños Hotels) was the perfect hostel.
We arrived early for check in because our flight was so early from Lima. Struggling to manage at altitude for the first time, we hobbled our way into the hostel. They greeted us warmly and immediately gave us coca tea to alleviate some of the altitude induced symptoms.
Breakfast at Niños Hotel
There is a small restaurant at the front of the hostel that is picture perfect. Our room was not ready, so we decided to eat breakfast first. Everything was amazing.
Homemade bread, fresh squeezed orange juice, delicious coffee, all the tea we wanted… and that was the first course.
This omelette tasted as vibrant as it looks. Fresh eggs bought that morning along with tomatoes from their home garden made the dish feel more special.
This yogurt was the freshest and most rich yogurt Max or I have ever consumed. I wish I could eat this every morning.

Niños Hotel Rooms
Our room was a minimalist hipster’s dream. The bedroom and bathroom were a comfortable size. I napped very well 🙂
At night the courtyard was something out of a fairy tale.
Niños Hotel restaurant
An open wood burning fire place heated the whole restaurant up and created a fantastic setting for a honeymoon.
Niños Hotel Extras!
Maxwell surprised me and I ended up getting roses in the room. I walked in and Niños Hotel had arranged it all. A perfect surprise.
When we got off the Inca Trail and needed to stay in Cusco for another night, we booked an upscale hotel. Though it was beautiful and luxurious, I wish we had just stayed at Niños for a second night. The staff went above and beyond for us and the accommodations were great.
If we ever find ourselves in Cusco again, I would choose Niños Hotel every time!
