“It's got some good and bad...”
Reviewed 28 March 2011

I ended up staying here since there was a last minute change of plans so I decided I wasn't going to be too picky. The hotel looks decent from outside, in a central area in downtown Trujillo.

The good:

Service: service was good, front desk was always helpful
Computers available in lobby, with decent internet speed
Mini fridge in room, useful especially when very hot
fan in room-I would have loved a/c, but I wasn't going to be too picky
not expensive
breakfast is included

The bad:
No iron available, only iron service $ (although not expensive, 1 shirt is 2 soles but I still would have opted to iron my own clothes if it was available)
bathroom was dirty (found some ants in the sink and shower, had to rinse everything, always wear flip flops , damp smell in the bathroom
room is very small, there is not a lot of room to move
Obviously, if you travel in summer, it is extremely hot in the room, you'll be thankful for the fan but wish for A/C
It's quite noisy, thin-paper walls, you can easily hear conversations from other rooms
breakfast is eggs mixed with pieces of ham (since I don't eat ham, I asked if there were other options, but they aren't).

If you stay one night, it's ok but if you plan to stay a couple days in Trujillo, I suggest spending a bit more for something better.
