Please check this hotel out when considering Puno. Yes, it might cost you a few extra bucks on cab fare, but the view warrants this small amount of money alone.

This Hotel is amazing. The food is superb, fresh and the presentation is worth its weight in gold!. The room has all the amenities that one could ask for and the view of Lake Titicaca from the window is breathtaking. The walls are adorned with antique textiles of Inca shaman and q'ero's and it is worth walking up and down... More

This beautiful hotel overlooking Lake Titicaca was my favorite place to stay in Peru. Our large suite with king size bed, comfortable couches and private access to a deck overlooking the lake was the perfect place to watch the sun come up. The hotel walls are full of beautiful weavings and the grounds are littered with pottery, crystals and a... More

This is the best of the Taypikala Hotels, based just outside Puno. It sits on the edge of Lake Titcaca, so the views are beautiful, seeing the sun rise and set. The gardens are beautiful, a comfortable place to relax. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help when they can. The rooms are clean... More
