Good room, great views. Plenty of blankets and two heaters that were needed initially as it was so cold that ice formed outside. This towards the end of May. Soon warmed up though and spent a very comfortable couple of nights. Ate once in the Hotel which was average but service was O.K.. Really liked the Hotel layout and its... More

We landed at the hotel on the 13th evening and were given a warm welcome and a good room with a view. Instant hot water, clean towels and bathroom were the positive points. However heating was very poor in the room and there was no wifi. We paid usd 75 for just a night expecting better comfort and heating( the... More

Couldn't get a smile or a thank you from the staff. PROS: very hot water from the faucets) CONS: *Staff - not rude but indifferent, *No hot water for drinks (like tea), *VERY expensive small water bottle, *Relatively far from the stores located in downtown Chivay - (I say relative because I had a headache and the picturesque stroll felt...

Well I see others had the same experience we did. We liked the location just outside of town, which meant the nights were generally peaceful and quiet although you can hear the noise from town when it is excessive as it was our first night when some kind of revival went until about 10 p.m.. It was easy to walk... More

Our room here was lovely and views were fantastic. Such a shame that the lady managing the hotel was so unfriendly and on occasion rather rude! We found it quite funny but in all seriousness, if this place had friendly or even just polite staff, it would make all the difference! Breakfast was very basic.

We stayed here as our first choice was fully booked. I hadn't read the negative reviews about the staff until we were there and agree there seems to be a very negative vibe that is hard to ignore. Room okay though numerous lights weren't working and wifi only outside of the room.

I stayed here with my friend as part of a group tour round Peru and thoroughly enjoyed myself at this hotel. Our room was cosy with twin beds and a good hot shower. The location is ideal, by the Colca Canyon away from any street lights, quiet and only a 10 minute ride away from the hot springs which we... More

Hotel overall looks really nice, our room was had a smart set up with a sofa overlooking the city. Things start to go the other... More

Our family of 6 stayed here mid-July 2013 and our experience concurs exactly with others who found the staff rude and unhelpful. We had a particular special moment with the porter who does not carry bags. The hotel seems to be run on a shoestring and, if you can find them, staff are generally too busy for guests. Although the... More

While the setting was beautiful and rooms were quaint, the staff was incredibly rude and not helpful at all (when they were available). The beds were very uncomfortable with only a tiny pillow. We were shocked at what we got for the price. We asked the staff if they could help us set up a tour to the Cruz del... More
