There are quite a few nice mountain accommodations around Huaraz, however if you look for the best, it's th Lazy Dog. Wonderful staff, great food, beautiful rooms, very comfortable beds with view on the stars, at walking distance from beautiful valleys, with fine horses to ride, and importantly: completely sustainable, ecologically and socially.
I can only endorse what previous visitors have already said: I recommend a stay at the Lazy Dog Inn to everyone who likes to be outdoors in all comfort.
