“Great Hotel in Puno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The Tierra Viva is a very nice hotel in a city where the options are not as great as Tierra Viva. Very nice location on a well lit, pedestrian only street near the town center and close to some great local restaurants. Staff is experienced and very supportive. Rooms are clean, well appointed and have linens, towels and hot water and heaters. The hotel provided customized travel agent to arrange specific private tours of Suasi Island, Isle Taquile and Isle Uros. We had a fantastic time. Also arranged transfers for a low cost. Thank you for a wonderful stay Hotel Tierra Viva

Room Tip: Ask them for a room that won't have loud noise at night. Ask that the cleaning staff do not ope...

By the time I booked my weekend trip to Puno, I didn't have many options because hotels in the city were almost fully booked. I was really lucky to have a room available at Tierra Viva. It's a very well located hotel, close to Lago Titicaca and the main plaza of the city. You will find a good hotel compared to the others (during the tours I did, I have met people complaining about hotels in the city), clean rooms and a friendly staff.

Room Tip: It doesnt have a swimming pool but who needs a swimming pool in Puno?

Very good choice to stay in Puno:
a new hotel just at the corner of the main street and/or the Cathedral and 5 minutes by taxi to the Port.
It's clean, with huge beds, flat Sat-TV, fully equipped bathroom, kind receptionists, good variety for breakfast.
Recommended!

Stayed here 2 nights for a quick visit to Puno/Lake Titicaca. The hotel is very new and was extremely clean and nice. For a quick review:
Pros: clean
Great front desk staff
Reliably arranged airport transportation (this was vital, as there were protests when we arrived and no public transport at Juliaca airport. Juliaca is a s$!thole, by the way).
Good breakfast overall
Great location
Large rooms
Great front desk staff

Cons: a nearby all night club can make some rooms a bit loud, though I slept right through most of it.
I did find a hair in my eggs at breakfast the first day, which was a bit of a turnoff.

In addition to the above, my husband developed HAPE our 2nd night there and the front desk person was very nice about helping us get oxygen in the middle of the night. Overall, highly recommend.

Fantastic hotel. Very convenient location in central Puno, all comfortable and very friendly and attentive service. Hotel helped us with many things, booked excursions, answered all questions (e.g. we got to know that Peru-Bolivia border eventually closes at 6:30 and we could be on on time to Cusco so we decided to cancel the hotel in Bolivia and prolong for 3rd night in Puno). Everyone from our small group was very happy with this stay. Just perfect and excellent value for money.

Keep in mind that hotel is located on the pedestrian street and you cannot drive to the entrance. But ou can easily park your car on any side streets or private garages in central Puno.

Fantastic hotel.. we stayed in Tierra Viva Arequipa, Puno and Cusco and the best thing about all the hotels is that they are all the same. Comfortable beds with clean, crisp, white sheets. Breakfast is plentiful. Friendly and very helpful staff. Wi-fi access is great. Very clean rooms and bathrooms and definitely value for money. Great place to stay.

This is a great place to stay if you are planning a day-trip on Lake Titicaca. The hotel is in the vey heart of Puno and is within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The hotel itself is very nice with attentive staff, decent size rooms, and very clean. The breakfasts here were also very good.
