Because of its design, this should be a very noisy hotel but, surprisingly, it wasn't during our four night stay. The staff is aware of the noise potential and are very good with requesting guests to be quiet. Bed was very comfortable, the entire hotel was extremely clean, breakfast was good enough, plenty of hot water in the roomy shower... More

This is a very nice, clean, and quiet hostal with great staff. It includes a filling breakfast and there is always mate de coca or other tea available. Prices are reasonable, and it's centrally located.

The staff were very helpful. The hostal arranged one of the staff to pick us up from the Turismo Mer Bus Station in... More

This gorgeous hotel has a high quality of hostality. It's like you're having a latin American family in there. There is the place for those who seek a warm heart and care. The breakfast is organized and fresh. You could easily make your self stuffed there instead of eating light in compare to the most hotels in Peru. As a... More

Good service and nice tidy rooms with excellent bathrooms for the money. Can be a bit noisy from stairwell and upper floors at times but very pleased we found this place. Finding a place with actual light fittings instread of just a 1000watt bulb burning your eyes out with no shade was a novelty too. Oh, opposite the hotel there... More

Good location - near to the main square - in a quiet passage so there was little traffic noise. Staff polite and helpful. Shower hot and powerful. Breakfast okay - includes fresh fruit and yoghurt. Room clean.
