Hostal Casona del Inca

Historic hotel in Cajamarca

This hotel on the central plaza is located in a not-unpleasant colonial building that's nonetheless getting a bit long in the tooth. Common areas retain color and character and the affiliated restaurant can grill up some good chicken, but the rooms here, while large, can be drab with beds minus headboards and pre-internet-age TVs.

Some rooms have tiny bathrooms so ask to compare options.
