I used to love staying at this hotel in Puno. I have stayed 5 or 6 times over the past two years. I have to say that they are in danger of losing business and respect if they do not change their rude, immature new staff-- 2 boys in reception-- who illegally try and lie to customers about the price...

We had a brilliant meal here while staying elsewhere. Great serving size for an excellent lasagne and steak. Very pleasant German guy serving in the restaurant chatted about the football on the TV and explained a lot about the current affairs, all without being overbearing. Great cakes too. Thanks for a good night.

Extremely nice personnel and the whole staying for 8 days was really nice because it felt like almost home. At one point I got sick and the lovely staff took care of everything, and I was healthy again in two days.

Stayed here for 1 night when stuck in Puno due to the Tia Maria strike. After 5 days in basic accommodation around the lake, the hot shower felt like luxury. Staff spoke good English & were friendly & helpful. Brought us an electric heater & a decent hairdryer on request. The restaurant loaned us wine glasses & the use of... More

We stayed for two nights in Puno at the Buho Hotel. It's located very close to everything you need and the staff is very professional and helpful. Our room was clean, spacious enough, a space heater, and had everything we needed. Good value. I wish we could have stayed longer!!

Went there with my girlfriend for 1 night. The room & bathroom were clean but not so big, which wasn't a problem for us. Staff was helpful. Hot shower, wi-fi and good breakfast. So all we were looking for. Would go there again.

I have two words to say: "EL BUHO". For the remainder of our trip in Peru I found myself repeating these two words with a godfather like accent - EL BUHO. We had no accommodations in Puno and stumbled upon this well-run establishment. Its got the feel of 1950s deep wood mahogany, pure class and a delicious breakfast buffet. Not... More

I have stayed at the hotel El Buho on four occasions for two or three nights each time and always enjoyed my stay there. El Buho is right down town Puno ,central to everything you will need. You will hopefully meet Carla the manager, who is a wonderfully helpful person
