The hotel is becoming run down. Maintenance certainly is not an important issue for the owner(s). Bathroom taps are old and worn - we had 3 rooms and all were the same, so no one can say it is just in one room. No hot water at night. Bed - well, one of the cheaper Peruvian mattresses - what does that tell you about the quality of sleep? Floor boards loose in one of the rooms creating a signifcant tripping hazard - been there for a long time and no one bothers to fix it. No elevator - tough for Elders having to walk up and down stairs all the time and try carrying a 23 Kg suitcase up to the second floor. Breakfast is a continental breakfast - which they do not tell you what is included until you ask for something that is not included. Best I got was a scrambled egg, not even made properly and when I asked for some ham and cheeze, I got one slice of ham and one slice of cheeze. Cheap, Cheap, Cheap.. Oh, and don't ask for a mixed tea made with a few fresh herbs, as that is not included and they hung me me for an additional 21 Soles for that one. I got to give them the restaurant food is good, but had two very snarly servers and 2 good ones. They are a bit out of whack with their organization and delivery of the food - some we had to ask for a second time and wait for a long time. Would I stay there again? I do not have a strong uge to - I think I will find somewhere else. I expected more and now have a dull mind about the place. Not worth the hype or the price. An old, not kept up hotel that is attempting to rest and make it on its historic laurels...

The hotel is advertised as one of the best in the city. And although it's location is good, the hotel is not comfortable at all. The fact that it is also a very popular cafe and restaurant means it's always packed and most of all, very noisy. There's music in the central patio from morning to night, and a lot of noise from restaurant customers and staff. The location also means that the noise from the main square is also present. The presence of the restaurant also means that everywhere smells like food all the time. The rooms are sort of okay, the decor poor leaning on tacky, the towels are hard, and there was only lukewarm-leaning on cold water in the shower and they use a huge amount of ambient deodorizer which can get nauseating. On the positive side, everything was clean, the bed was comfortable and the hotel staff were generally very nice. The price, however, is definitely not consistent with the quality of the place.

This restaurant is inside the Via Via Hotel in Ayacucho. Breakfast was included with our stay and we were greeted to a beautiful table on an incredible colonial balcony on the first morning. The restaurant offers a great variety of good food. Consistently tasty and fresh ingredients in all dishes. We stayed in Ayacucho for 4 days and ate there everyday without repeating any dishes. Fairly priced, friendly and accommodating service. HIGHLY recommended.

Good service, and excellent view over La Plaza de Armas if you manage to score a seat on the balcony. I ordered the fabled quinoa-crusted trout, and I expected more. Two things ruined the dish for me - first, the fish itself was put on top of the fries, which caused them to go completely soggy. Second - the fish had clearly been frozen judging by the taste and texture. Overall, I'd rate this dish 4/10. The alpaca steak with mushroom sauce however was excellent. The fries were to the side and retained their crisp long enough. The steak itself, as well as the sauce, were great. Overall an easy 7.5/10 The prices are a bit too high though, so keep that in mind.

I've fallen for Ayacucho. Staying a week, I am sorry to be leaving this tranquil place. And this hotel is amazing for the level of service and comfort, including hot showers, stable wifi, comfortable beds, and having a cafe and restaurant in the same building is so nice. But the best part for me is the staff. The front desk is open 24x7 so when I get up early I can take my melita to the front desk (at 3:30am) and he boils hot water for me! and they loan you a hair dryer upon request and converter plugs. This hotel is owned and managged by folks from Belgium and all the staff are Ayacuchans. I have totally enjoyed my stay here and will stay here again.

We had a double storey room for two. Bed was extremely comfortable.Restaurant and bar facilities good. Centrally located off main plaza but car parking options are limited. Recommended. WiFi reception can be sketchy but a little long cal roaming will sort this out.

Decent coffee and service, but by far the most expensive option in Ayacucho. Wifi works well. Go up on the balcony and have a coffee overlooking the plaza... watch the colours change as the sun goes down.

I spent 3 nights at ViaVia Peru Ayacucho in mid-May and found it a mix of wonderful and less than wonderful elements. I loved the location, right on Ayachucho’s charming main square. And I was very glad to enjoy a delicious and very generously portioned dinner at a table on the ViaVia’s square-side balcony –- a delcious cream of asparagus soup, followed by a truly wonderful entrée of alpaca. Wonderful! The ViaVia also has a pleasant courtyard café, which I enjoyed during the day. But it proved lively until well after midnight on the nights I was there, and by 4 or 5 a.m., there was sufficient noise to wake me. For me, that was a problem – maybe it wasn’t or won’t be a problem for others. Breakfasts, served on that wonderful balcony, were a bit disappointing – the supposedly hot foods (e.g., scrambled eggs) were almost cold and the array of options a bit more limited than I would have liked. Unexpectedly, my room had an “open” lay-out – the en suite bathroom was not fully walled off, instead having walls that reach only about 7 feet or so from the floor. I don’t like this kind of plan: When I step out of a shower, I want to step into steam, and there is no way to do that when the bathroom walls extend to the limits of the room. And unfortunately, I didn’t ever find enough hot water for my needs. That the room was COLD did not help…. So, so great elements, and some problematic ones. I hope this information helps you make a decision.

Hello, I stayed in the charming Ayacucho via via hotel for 4 nights . Unfortunately I did not have warm water for this period and the WiFi connection worked 10 percent of the time. I expect better when booking a via via. Regards Hannelore

Response from ViaVia A, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at ViaVia Cafe Ayacucho
Responded May 5, 2018
Buenos días estimado, en primer lugar nuestras disculpas sobre el agua fría; conforme a nuestra visión de emprendimiento social intentamos minimizar nuestra huella ecológica usando paneles solares. Este sistema es con uso de gas en caso de que no halla sido un día soleado esto debería dar una temperatura suficiente para que pueda tomar una ducha agradable. El Internet es un problema fuera de nuestro alcance visto que dependemos totalmente del servicio de la única empresa de telecomunicaciones que brinda Internet en el centro de Ayacucho. Otro factor es que nuestro hotel es una casona colonial con paredes de más de 1 metro de grosor lo cual no ayuda a difundir una buena señal. Sin embargo hemos instalado repetidores del señal para mejorar, pero lamentablemente hay días dónde el señal es muy baja. Estamos muy conscientes de este problema y seguimos buscando nuevas alternativas para mejor nuestro servicio. Esperamos que fuera de estas dos observaciones halla podido disfrutar de su estadía. Un cordial saludo.

Came here a few times during our visit to Ayacucho and enjoyed it every time. Food is great, well-priced and good quantities and ambiance is "cantina-fun". Next time I would stay in the hotel too! Thoroughly recommend.
