Stayed for 2 separate nights. The hotel is OK for budget but in South American winter it is cold at night when the temperature drops well below freezing with no central heating. The second night we discovered you could ask for a small electric heater from reception which helped. The location of the hotel is good although being next door... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour, so we were here twice. We had two difference expierences. The first visit wasn't great the room was freezing. Found out you have to ask the front desk for a heater. It was walking distance to all the major restaurants. The breakfast was okay nothings great. We had to change... More

Another fairly average G adventures hotel. Cited in a reasonable position approximately 10 minutes walk to the centre of town and 10 minutes rickshaw drive to the lake. This hotel has clearly seen better days although it is quite nice in its communal areas. The rooms were acceptable if somewhat spartan shower was good Breakfast was okay. Would certainly consider...

Very centrally located close to restaurants and shops. Every member of staff was cheery, welcoming and genuinely pleasant. Breakfast was average although we found this common around Peru. The rooms were outdated in an almost comical retro way, some updating would go a long way.

I have just walked out of the Italia and crossed the road to the Imperial. I had hoped to stay at the Italia but my online booking was not answered, so I was pleased to find a room available The dealbreaker was that the wi fi was not working and I needed to use it. Additionally I had to change... More

This hotel is ok..... It's in a good location in Puno, not far to walk to some good restaurants. We found it to be clean and pleasant, but it is looking quite tired now, but great if you love that retro vibe! Showers take time to get hot, but it's Puno, so not sure anywhere else would have been better.... More

I spent four weeks in Puno on a Fulbright in January; this is about 25 days longer than most visitors stay. The university arranged my lodging and had me stay in the Hotel Italia. I found the hotel to be very comfortable and conveniently located in the city center. The owners are a delightful family--a mother, two daughters and two... More

I stayed here while on a tour of Lake Titicaca. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Located near the lake. Breakfast only small selection but nice. Coca and green teas available 24/7. No lifts but staff will take cases to upper floors.

Stayed for 2 nights. Both times the room faced the street, with the bathroom window facing the interior. Opening both meant that there was a nice cross-breeze during the day. At night, there was a small heater provided in the room. No problems with the bathroom or hot water. Breakfast was good -- you can ask the staff for a... More

I would never stay here again. I went on a tour that stayed at this hotel, and my two night stay was not fun. The best parts about this hotel are the free wifi, free tea, and hot showers. Conversely, I wore a hat and mittens to bed. Other people in my group seemed to have gotten heaters in their... More
