This street is having its utilities put underground--but it no longer has the 3 foot deep hole running the length of the block--I would assume that the street will be paved by the end of November.
Due to the construction, our tour bus had to drop us off at the corner and we had to walk to the hotel. But the hotel sent staff out to carry our luggage into the hotel for us.
First night we ate in the hotel--it was raining and had been a long drive (over 11 hours with stops) from Cusco to Puno. The dining room had only one waiter and only one person making pizzas (menu was pretty much pizzas and calzones). Our group of 16 ate there and there were many others--so service was a bit stretched--but the calzone we had was delicious!
Room was smallish but clean; bed was comfortable. Shower small. WiFi signal was weak unless I sat by the door--we were around the corner from the antennae. On the second floor, there were two computers and a printer, so you could print out your boarding passes, etc. However, the bandwidth is quite small and the internet is SLOW!
Breakfast was okay with ham, cheese, breads, juice, coffee (and hot milk!).
Short walk to the main square and cathedral--lots of shopping even on a Sunday morning.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A medium-size, easygoing hotel with several relaxing public areas, including a fireplace lounge and courtyard. Close to Puno’s restaurant and bar scene along the pedestrian-only Lima boulevard — just a 5-minute walk— but just far enough removed to make sure visitors get a good night’s sleep. More spacious, with larger bedrooms and with more public areas, than Casa Andina’s other downtown Puno Classic hotel. ... more less
