“Disappointed!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

As experienced travellers we did not feel welcomed by Julie as guests but as clients. Security appeared to be an issue-there was too much of it! We were not given a key to come & go which was onerous & felt prison like. Although we were late in paying our 2nd week's rent, we were particularly incensed when Julie requested a deposit the evening before we were leaving after an invitation to walk through the suite to review the condition. Essentially we were told the deposit was in case we stole or broke something - and as middle aged adults this was quite an insult! In summary, we feel that had we been given a list of ground rules perhaps this bad taste may not have occurred. This property is used as university housing and it seems that Julie is having difficulty distinguishing between B&B guests and longer term student housing. We wish them well and hope they consider these constructive comments.

Room Tip: This is a busy street so you may want to have a room at the rear of the building

Good afternoon,
I have just read your comment on Tripadvisor and honestly do not understand.
We are a business and therefore do need to ask for a deposit as these appartments are fully equipped.
We cannot ask a deposit for only certain type of people , this is requested to all our guests. There is no difference, and this is not an insult.
I requested as per our conversation per email payment of the second week upon arrival which you didn't pay, fair enough, we left it there.
I have had the feeling that you didn't want to pay the deposit because you have damaged the wall in the kitchen !! As we are CONCERNED and honest, we did not charge you ANYTHING for it but we still had to buy paint. Your comment is unreal to me.
There is NO WAY a guest house will give you the key of their main door. This is a house before all and this is Peru. For security reason, we must keep our place safe.
I did not cover your deposit for the wall, I let you leave before without asking for full payment. We were always here to help. I am sorry your comment is inappriopriate.

Very Good deal to stay by Julie's B&B!! Friendly owner, fully renovated rooms, 10 minutes from City centre which actually means one dollar taxi ride. Far from the centre noisy places, the Orrego spacious rooms make you feel yourself Home...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

The hostal is a good value. Rooms are very large, new furniture, clean. Owner, Julie, speaks excellent English, Spanish (and we assume German) and is very helpful! Hot water available 24 hrs. Location is as safe as any in northern Peru, but be careful at night. Major road runs in front of hotel so taxis are available at any time; taxi to center is normally is S/4-5, but more at rush hour. There are many tour operators around the Plaza de Armas. Check prices and tours with several. Hotel serves a great breakfast, included in price. Price is very good. Tours to Huaca Luna y Sol, El Brujo & Chan Chan are excellent, but prices vary.
