We arrived this summer in hotel Buho in Puno, which has a convenient location close to the Plaza. The interior is pretty old fashioned and the hallways are dark. The rooms are clean, but lack of maintanance. Especially the bathroom: the strange smell was pervading! The receptioinist Carla seemed very busy all the time and answered our questions pretty snappish.... 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

Good breakfast! They let us store our bags for free. Courteous and helpful staff, they really want to help their customers!! Very clean hotel, and the beds are some of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. The location is great, right by the main streets and only a few blocks from Plaza De Armas!! -Frank and Sophie.

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

The hotel we originally booked online let us down by apparently being no longer in business so we found El Buho. The staff were super helpful (they let us know that our train had been moved forward due to a strike, and then after it was cancelled made many phone calls to find out the situation and get us alternative...

We arrived quite late but were lucky to find still some free rooms. The hotel is located very near to the main pedestrian street and therefore very convenient. Good price for the quality provided. We were three persons so we got a triple room which was not very big but sufficient for a one night stay. There is a private... More
