I found Hotel Ruinas through the recommendation of my tour company to trek the Classic Inca Trail. The cost is very affordable compared to other top notch chains in the vicinity. I was surprised by the cleanliness, the beautiful marbled lobby, and the staff’s professionalism. The staff went out of their way to help make my stay comfortable and easy since it is very hard to adjust to the altitude. I love how centrally located the hotel was to the Plaza, which took me by surprise since I didn’t do much research until getting there. There are so many top notch restaurants right around the corner to the hotel, including convenient market stores where you can pick up snacks and water. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay within budget and still have a very comfortable and relaxing stay in Cusco. I’m glad I chose it as my resting stop before and after my Inca trail trek.
