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

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
