Best hotels and hostels in Lake Titicaca

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Lake Titicaca

    Titilaka

    Secluded on the rugged shoreline of Lake Titicaca, one hour south of Puno, luxury hotel Titilaka is a destination in itself. Huge picture windows drink in the serene landscapes in every direction. Rooms sport king-sized beds warmed by hot-water bottles, withdeep tubs, phone docks and window-ledge seating. There are games for kids, a spa and gourmet restaurant.

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Islas Uros

    Uros Samaraña Uta Lodge

    Hosts César and Lucy have created a special experience on Islas Uros, and if you wish to deal directly with a Uros family without an agency, this is one of the best choices. Comfortable, large reed huts have private bathrooms, large beds, and those views! Rates include cultural activities like boating, fishing and optionally spending quality time with the family.

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Chucuito

    Taypikala Lago

    It would be hard to miss the museum-like, arched-window exterior of Taypikala Lago at its prime and singular position near the lake. Handsome rustic-modern rooms have impressive water and garden views and staying (luxuriously) near a secluded part of the lake is a destination in itself, though central Chucuito is a five-minute stroll away across the highway.

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Isla Suasi

    Hotel Isla Suasi

    On Titicaca's only private island, this is as exclusive as resorts get. Terraced rooms are well-appointed, with down duvets, fireplaces and lake views. The colorful flora, walks, lake swims, kayaking and chance to spot wild vicuña (threatened, wild relatives of alpacas) without the crowds make this the paradise island of postcards.

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Islas Uros

    Cristina Suaña

    A long-standing accommodation provider on Uros is on Isla Khantati. The tariff is steep but includes top-notch accommodations, three meals, fishing, ample cultural activity and the company of the effervescent Cristina Suaña. Book in advance so she can pick you up from Puno in a private boat – if you catch the ferry you may end up on the wrong island.

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Puno

    Casa Panq’arani

    This delightful traditional Puno home has a flower-filled courtyard and inviting rooms lining a 2nd-floor balcony. But the real draw is the sincere hospitality of owners Edgar and Consuelo. Rooms are spacious, with comfortable beds with crocheted bedspreads and fresh flowers. There are ample sunny spots for lounging. Don’t miss Consuelo’s gourmet altiplano cooking (meals S35 with advance request).

A cozy dining space serves pizzas and soups post-excursion.

  • Lodging in Puno

    Casona Plaza Hotel

    This well-run, central hotel with 64 rooms is one of the largest in Puno, but is often full. All rooms are modern and neutral, and the bathrooms are great. They offer matrimoniales (matrimonial suites) especially for lovers – most are big enough to dance the marinera (Peru’s national dance) between the bed and the lounge suite.

  • Lodging in Puno

    Casa Andina Premium

    On the outskirts of Puno, with lovely lakeside ambience, this upmarket hotel features 46 rooms, gardens and a gourmet restaurant. It even has its own train stop for those coming from Cuzco. The look is rustic chic. Rooms feature impeccable white linens and subtle decor, some with stone fireplaces, and all with oxygen to help acclimatize.

  • Lodging in Puno

    Inka’s Rest

    Tucked into a small alley, this hostel earns high marks for service. Very clean, it features bunks with down duvets, and attractive old tile and parquet floors. There’s a cute breakfast area as well as a guest kitchen and huge flat-screen TV. Private rooms are less attractive. There is intercom entry; take a taxi if arriving at night.

  • Lodging in Puno

    Posada Luna Azul

    The 'blue moon' name might conjure images of a cozy, tranquil night's rest, and this small hotel is tucked far enough away from the noise that it's true. The petite, clean, carpeted rooms have flat-screen TVs and good heaters, making them impressively warm all night, and the showers are strong and hot. Warmth at last in Puno.

  • Top ChoiceLodging in Puno

    Intiqa Hotel

    Yes, a midrange Puno hotel with a sense of style. The 33 large, heated rooms feature snug duvets and earth tones, extra pillows, desks, flat-screen TVs and a safe box. The elevator is something of a rarity in Puno. Offers free pickups from the Terminal Terrestre. Credit cards are accepted.

  • Lodging in Puno

    Hostal Pukara

    Bright and cheery, Pukara leaves no corner undecorated, with an eye-catching four-story relief, murals and other touches. Rooms all have cable TV, phones and heating. Street-side rooms can be noisy all night. The buffet breakfast is served in a glass-covered rooftop cafe with a great view.

  • Lodging in Isla Amantaní

    Amantaní Community Lodging

    When you arrive, Amantaní Community Lodging, basically the island families, will allocate you to your accommodations according to a rotating system. Please respect this process, even if you are with a guided group. There’s no problem with asking for families or friends to be together.

  • Lodging in Capachica Peninsula & Around

    Félix Turpo

    Community leader Félix Turpo has a gorgeous garden and the Capachica Peninsula’s most spectacular view, overlooking Isla Taquile. It’s also the spot to enjoy a rare hot shower, consisting of a black rubber pipe on a warm rock (it’s recommended to shower during daylight hours).

  • Lodging in Capachica Peninsula & Around

    Alfonso Quispe

    You can stay with the engaging Alfonso Quispe and his family, right on the edge of the lake. Catch your own fish for breakfast, birdwatch, hike to the lookout and some overgrown ruins, and relax on the beach, which is arguably Capachica’s most beautiful (but it’s a tough call).

  • Lodging in Capachica Peninsula & Around

    Emiliano

    Tiny somnolent Chifrón (population 24) is located off the main road in the northeast corner of the Capachica Peninsula. Very basic accommodation for a maximum of 15 people is offered by three families. Emiliano is the main point of contact.

  • Lodging in Puno
