This was one of the best hotels we stayed at in Peru. The staff spoke pretty good English and were very helpful, giving us great recommendations for restaurants and directions for banks, shops, etc.
We stayed here one night before and one night after an overnight trip to one of the Islands on Lake Titicaca. The hotel stored the majority of our luggage for us while we were on the lake and had our bags taken to our room when we returned. We were very impressed with both the rooms we were given.
The first night we arrived there was a carnival in the street not far from the hotel. We fell asleep to the sound of the music and dancing which was nice. Although we could still hear the carnival we were impressed at how much sound the windows blocked out. My partner is a light sleeper and she didn't have any issues with the noise.
Location is great. It is one block north of the Puno Cathedral and the Plaza de Armas, and one block west of the pedestrian mall containing great shops and restaurants.
Breakfast consisted of a good selection of breads and croissants, ham, cheese, condiments, fruits, cereals, tea and coffee, which was included in the nightly rate for the hotel. We had an early morning flight from Juliaca airport, and the shuttle picked us up before breakfast was due to be served. The staff arranged for breakfast to be ready just before we were due to depart to allow us to take breakfast with us when we left.
Overall we were very happy, and this proved to be one of the better hotels we stayed at in Peru.
