Stayed here for 1 night when stuck in Puno due to the Tia Maria strike. After 5 days in basic accommodation around the lake, the hot shower felt like luxury. Staff spoke good English & were friendly & helpful. Brought us an electric heater & a decent hairdryer on request. The restaurant loaned us wine glasses & the use of... More

We stayed for two nights in Puno at the Buho Hotel. It's located very close to everything you need and the staff is very professional and helpful. Our room was clean, spacious enough, a space heater, and had everything we needed. Good value. I wish we could have stayed longer!!

Went there with my girlfriend for 1 night. The room & bathroom were clean but not so big, which wasn't a problem for us. Staff was helpful. Hot shower, wi-fi and good breakfast. So all we were looking for. Would go there again.

I have two words to say: "EL BUHO". For the remainder of our trip in Peru I found myself repeating these two words with a godfather like accent - EL BUHO. We had no accommodations in Puno and stumbled upon this well-run establishment. Its got the feel of 1950s deep wood mahogany, pure class and a delicious breakfast buffet. Not... More

I have stayed at the hotel El Buho on four occasions for two or three nights each time and always enjoyed my stay there. El Buho is right down town Puno ,central to everything you will need. You will hopefully meet Carla the manager, who is a wonderfully helpful person

The location of the hotel is right next to the main shopping street for tourists, with many restaurants and shops. The room is clean and big enough for our big suitcases too. Shower is nice and warm and the bed is nice to sleep. The only problem is that the power socket is not standard so we had to borrow... More

El Buho is in a good location with the main street just around the corner. Our room was clean with an ensuite shower room and hot water. Allthough there was no heating once in bed we were warm enough and did not wake up feeling cold, they do provide extra blankets. The breakfast was Ok but not spectacular! The staff... More
