Very decent hotel in Puno, staff was helpful, good room and breakfast. Good value for money in Puno. A little far from the main bus station but not an issue in taxi. Supermarket very close, Main town center and travel agencies at walking distance also.

The location is good, just a five minute walk to the main tourist street and restaurants. In the evening ladies sell bread outside the hostel. The port is not far away and trips to the island can be arranged for 25 soles per person. 24 hour hot water, excellent wifi, comfy bed and larger than average room. The breakfast was... More

We arrived very early in the morning and they gave us temporarily a room just to rest from the bus trip from Cusco. Our room was not free yet and we booked a tour to the Uros Islands (a must see!!! but do not take the full day trip to the other island, it is a very long boat ride... More

With all the bad reviews we were expecting a dump! But we were pleasantly surprised. I guess that there are more tourists in this part of South America so the expectations are higher. The rooms are clean, nice enough, decorated like your grannies house and we had hot water for almost every shower. We stayed here three times... 2 nights... More

Pros: Cheap! 1 young lady and 1 young man reception in the night speak simple English. The lady who serves breakfast is very nice and kind. I love the breakfast here! It's located near central market, main plaza and not far from harbor. It is noisy in the night but we walk a lot on the day, so we still... More

If you must stay in Puno, this hotel is cheap. But nothing works. Not much hot water. Unstable electricity. The pictures from other travelers showed rooms much nicer than ours. There was a train track and a place which sold loud "boom box" stereos across the street, so the noise only stopped at night. The staff kept the front doors... More

I suppose we shouldn't have expected much for 25 dollars a night. The hotel is apparently located in a dodgy area, so the front doors are always locked and you need to hang around waiting for a receptionist to appear with the keys. The room was very dark and dingy, just like the reception, and with a "view" across a... More

We got to a very stressful situation in Puno. We paid for bus tickets Puno-Cusco to a travel agency "Mistianos Tours" in Arequipa and they promised to deliver these bus tickets to our hotel in Puno (Santa Maria Inn) next day. But there were no tickets waiting on us at the reception and a hotel staff found out that the... More
