Bed and Breakfast in Peru

You may not find bed and breakfast in Peru in quite the same form as in the UK, Europe, and US, but there are numerous places where you can stay B&B in Peru. B&B in Peru is a wonderful idea if you want the freedom to eat most of your meals where and when you choose. You will find a wide range of hospidajes, pensiones, residencailes, hostales and hoteles all of which can equate to either guest houses or hotels. However, not all of them will include the price of breakfast with the room rate and many of the cheaper guest houses may not provide any breakfast at all. In Peru, breakfasts tend to be minimal, as lunch is the main meal of the day. However, some of the mid-range and higher-priced hotels do provide a deseyuno Americano (American breakfast), which is rather more substantive.

There is no rating system in Peru for accommodation, so it is always a good idea to view a room before taking it, as you may find that you can get a better room for the same price, even in the same hotel. B&B accommodation in a typical backpackers' hospidaje in Arequipa, Peru would cost from £5.20 per person per night, based upon 2 people sharing a room, but with a shared bathroom. B&B in a single room in a guesthouse in Miraflores, Lima with en-suite bathroom, cable TV etc would cost £26 and £28.60 for a double room with similar facilities.

Apartments in Peru

If you intend to stay for longer periods in any one place, then an apartment in Peru might be a good option, as it can be cheaper than a hotel. An apartment in Miraflores, Lima would cost from £30 per day. Another option you may want to consider is renting an apart-hotel in Peru, which is becoming increasingly common in many of the larger Peruvian towns and cities. They have the advantage of being easier to find and rent than standard apartments, because they are clearly marked on the street and are usually advertised everywhere.

Renting an apart-hotel in Peru is simple in that you can either book it in advance, like a hotel, or just walk in and book your apartment at reception, just like a hotel. As you might guess, apart-hoteles in Peru combine features of both apartments and hotels, with en-suite bathrooms, adjoining kitchens, room service and cleaning. Most apart-hoteles include breakfast in the day rate. Apart-hoteles in Peru may offer you a discount for longer bookings. Prices can vary, but a daily rate for a single room in an apart-hotel in Iquitos would cost about £34.00 per night. A suite in an apart-hotel in Lima, mid-season would cost about £37.50 per night.

Lodges in Peru

Lodge style accommodation is popular in the more remote and rural parts of Peru, especially in the Amazon Basin. This type of accommodation is becoming increasingly popular in the Andean region too. Lodge-style accommodation usually consists of a chalet or bungalow and is mostly self-catering, although some places do provide breakfast. However, in Peru's National Parks lodge accommodation is relatively rare, and what there is is usually privately owned and expensive.

This type of accommodation is perfect for eco-tourism and viewing the country's superb wildlife. In recent years, many tour companies have developed all-in packages for eco-tourism in Peru and perhaps the best way to see some of the remoter parts of the country is to book one of these, where you would stay in an eco-lodge. These are generally bungalows that sleep up to 5 people. Many of them have the kinds of luxury amenities that you would expect in any modern home, even though they are located in the middle of the jungle, so you rest assured can drink water that is safe and you will be protected from insects. A guided three-day tour, staying in a lodge the Amazon Basin, including all meals, will cost around £200, based upon shared accommodation.
