“Nice Hotel in a Central Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

Puno is a relatively small city, so I doubt that it has many luxury hotels. For a basic, comfortable hotel, the Royal Inn suits very nicely. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel can be a little noisy because of the open stairway from the 1st floor to the 2nd, but that wasn't much of a problem. WiFi service was spotty; I couldn't get the signal in my room, but I could get it at a seating area just a few steps outside the room. The room was comfortable, and the powerful shower had plenty of hot water. The Royal Inn is just a block from the Plaza de Armas, on the far side of which is a 3-block stretch with endless restaurant choices. (Try the pizza!)

Stayed April 2012, travelled with friends

Got the matrimonial suite and really enjoyed the massage shower. Water took time to heat up. No complimentary water included. Room heater didn't work as expected but the extra blankets helped. Room was spacious. You need your key to lock the door from inside your room (no auto-lock). Desktops are provided in floor lobby for public use. Good wifi signal in rooms. Complimentary tea available in the main lobby. Thin walls. Buffet breakfast offered multiple choices.

Located by the main square - walking distance to restaurants, shops, groceries and market. If you have time to walk around, get a map from front desk and ask them to highlight the sights you can check out. Try the Peruvian coffee in La Casa del Corregidor just across the square.

I read in another review that this hotel is only a few years old. That surprised me, because it felt like it had had its heyday in the 1980s. Other reviewers have said that this hotel is "modern." I don't agree. The bathroom (which was freezing cold, by the way) could use a decor update. The TV also has few English-language options. That said, the location is excellent; very close to the main pedestrian street, restaurants, etc. Also, the wi-fi worked perfectly, and the room and bed were comfortable overall (despite the depressing view from the window).

The Hotel Royal Inn is a great 4 star hotel. It is location in walking distance to major parts of Puno. Great staff and great breakfast.

Comfortable hotel, comfortable beds, nirestaurant with healthy food.
The hotel is close to the Main square, is avery good option.
If is needed the hotel has oxygen for the guests, remember that you are over 12000 feet.

Room Tip: No problem, but is better the inside rooms, because the noise on the weekends.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

The location is perfect for exploring Puno in this modern hotel. The positives are many: clean, nicely furnished lobby, excellent buffet breakfast, helpful staff. However, it does have some pecularities, especially evident for a 4 star hotel. We arrived late afternoon and the rooms were freezing. We were told the heat does not come on until 6 pm and we later found out it goes off at 4am. It was raining on and off and led to an uncomfortable stay. For a modern hotel, it has the old fashioned key. The door does not lock automatically, so you need to lock it with the key while inside. True a minor issue until one person leaves the room while the other sleeps in. The rooms are not sound proof so you hear all the street noise 24/7.
I give this an average rating for the uncomfortable stay.

My friends and I stayed at this hotel as part of a Gate 1 tour. Hotel Royal Inn is literally steps away from the main square, tons of restaurants and an easy walk to other area attractions. The breakfast buffet was satisfying, the hotel is modern and the rooms were big, clean and comfortable. My friend had a room with a jacuzzi tub. The bed was great and I think I had the best night sleep there throughout my trip. I would gladly stay here again.
