At a midpoint between the Plaza de Armas and Sacsayhuamán, high up on a San Blas hillside, Casa Valer has a vibe more reminiscent of a more rural Sacred Valley hotel (and they have one there, too, called Casa de Campo). The chalet-style rooms are rustic and small, with wool blankets and wood beams. They’re spread out on three levels. Vegetation grows everywhere and covers everything on the property, from the terraced gardens to the facade. The major challenge is the location and the walk there (then walking up stairs to the rooms), though the trade-off is its phenomenal views of the city.
