“Nice place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

There is 2 different rates in this hotel: ordinary (which can be found on the wall, near the counter desk), and promotional, which you can be offered on the bus station. For me it was 30 soles for single room.

This is 3* hotel (by Peruvian standarts). You can check ordinary price for 3* on booking com, or elsewhere. Most of feedbacks here are left for promotional price, which are fairly cheap.

For promotional price there is some limitations:
- additional fee for breakfast
- no towel
- cash only

I think, it worth it. Have in mind, that you will be offered with clean and tidy room, private bath with hot water, and so on. And with exellent location, 1 minute walking to the center.

Remember, people, who enjoyed with service, almost dont left feedbacks.

I found just 2 things I not enjoyed very much:
1. Rooms are quite cold. There is a plenty of warm blankets for comfortable sleep, but still.
2. Staff are almost not english speaking. But there is always around someone who can help you.

They offer a lot, at least in their advertisement. The price for a double room is really cheap - 25 soles per person. But we had to pay extra for breakfast, and when I asked for coffee, this was neither included nor available. If you wish the heating to be turned on, it costs extra. Same if you wish to use their computer/internet, which didn't work. Most disappointing: While checking in, we were told twice, that warm water was available 24hours - unfortunately only in the thermos jug;-)
Anyway, the room was cheap, quite clean and the staff is friendly. But the cold shower and the fact that they promise more as they actually offer made us leave after 1 night.

Found this place just on arrival at the bus station Abone of the counters.
A friend and I got a good deal and decided to stay.
The rooms were clean, wifi was non existent in the room but ok in the central area. Tv didn't work.
The staff were pleasant.
Hot shower was good.
You need to pay extra for a towel but that could have been coz we got the room so cheap.
Located centrally.

This is a family run hotel in a fantastic central location. We paid 50 soles for a double room with private bathroom. Hot showers, quiet location, decent breakfast with eggs available at 1 soles extra. Free luggage store if you go to the islands and good wifi for free!

Room Tip: Back rooms are super quiet and look onto garden with guinea pigs in.....

We found ourselves in Puno overnight after missing our connecting bus to Copacabana. We got a room here for 50 soles, private bath with hot water, cable tv, wifi and breakfast. Our room on the top floor was quite cold though we asked for extra blankets. The check in girl was friendly and helpful.
Breakfast the next morning wasn't great, yuck...margarine. Maybe exclude breakfast for a better rate.

We arrived in Puno via bus from Arequipa, after a beautiful ride through the Peruvian highlands. The descent into Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca, was welcome and surprising. None of us were expecting so large a city. At the bus station we collected our checked baggage and schlepped them into the terminal. I let my wife and daughters rest in the rarefied air of 3,827 meters (over12, 600 feet!) while I looked for information on places to stay. A persistent man named Nestor convinced me to let him take us to the Gran Puno Inn. He helped us get our luggage to his "friend's" mini-van taxi and within 5 minutes were at the hotel. It looked nicer from the outside than I was expecting and it had many credit card decals on the window saying they were accepted there.
Inside, we were met by a gracious middle-aged woman, who gave me a key to room 208. It was a nice room, on the second floor, at the end of the balcony. The room was quiet, most light bulbs worked (this is Latin America, so budget travelers have to accept some deficiencies). The bathroom and shower were clean, as were the beds. The room was just warm enough, as this city is a little higher than Mount Adams, the second highest peak in Washington State, where we're from.
Nestor tried to convince us to book an excursion onto Lake Titicaca through him. The owners of the boats are reputable per the Moon Guide on Peru and so we agreed. The trip onto the lake to the floating Uros islands (made of reeds) and on to Taquile island was wonderful and is a must see/experience.
The shopping in Puno is good, especially if you are looking for alpaca woolens. Some of them are unbelievably soft!
The hotel's price of 120 soles per night (about $44 US) was reasonable and the owner was pleasant and helpful. A fairly major negative though, was their advertising accepting Visa, American Express and Diners Club credit cards. We would love to have used ours Visa card, but when I went to pay, she said they don't accept them, because they charge "8 soles". That would have been a small price to pay to keep more of our cash available and I told her I didn't like the false advertising.
Also, a second negative was after we left, one of my daughters realized she left a small stuffed toy dog in her bed and though I emailed the hotel twice, offering to pay the shipping if they found it, they never responded to me.
In spite of the negatives, I would consider a stay here again, with better planning on carrying more cash.
