This hotel is located in Puerto Perez on the shores of Lake Titicaca, about 70 km from La Paz. Our tour group stopped here for one night so that we could do an afternoon tour to the museum at Isla Pariti and the stone tombs at Isla Kala Uta. The rooms had a great view overlooking the lake, were very...

Other reviews here are very generous (even the bad ones), although I notice that they are all quite old. This hotel is a neglected wreck. When our party arrived, there was rubbish everywhere, no one there and we noticed the guest book hadn't been signed for a long, long time. The furniture, beds, linens and everything else is just decrepit....

We only stayed here for one night and that really was enough. The hotel is set on the edge of Lake Titicaca - an idyllic setting but the hotel is VERY tired.

Our ground-floor room was large, with two double beds, a picture window and a...

Construction of the hotel wasn't completed. Nice, clean rooms with TV. Beautiful view over the Titicaca lake. Close to center and bus stations. Hot water supply by means of on the spot heater was acceptable, but the way of mounting the electrical equipment wasn't up to western standards. No breakfast yet (breakfast room was still under construction).
