“Overpriced, unprofessional staff, weird rooms”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

You'd think for the outrageous price that this hotel is charging that you'd get luxury back in return. I have one word for that: monopoly. Piura is not a tourist town, and I suspect that many visitors are professional or business, rather than tourist class. There aren't many good hotels to choose from, and el Angolo knows it.

The rooms of Angolo are very strangely designed. The first room we had was L-shaped, dark, old, had bare flourescent lighting, cobwebs by the bathroom, mismatched and thin bed linens and room furniture. I swear I was in the twilight zone. They were renovating so I guess they knew that it needed an update. Highlight of the hotel included a skunk being chased and netted out of the pool. We got hung up on a few times by reception staff who spoke little to no English. The restaurant was slow, and the waitress really hated her job.

It was a depressing place to stay, but we were there for family reasons rather than tourism, so put up with it for a few nights.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2007

I stayed one week at this hotel and it was relaxing, nice, clean and comfortable. Nice and large room, very good service, clean, personnel always careful and good price (around 40 USD). I will definitively recommend it if you have to stay in Piura.
