The hotel is located in a quiet location in walking distance to the center of town. It is a well equipped facility, rooms were large and clean as was the bathroom. It is not a modern facility but had everything one needed.
The restaurant is located downstairs. Breakfast buffet had several new items from the local area in addition to the regular breakfast items. One item was interesting. They had peeled the prickly pear fruit and sliced it and served along side the Kiwi fruit. It was sweet, juicy with lots of seeds. Our group final dinner was very good, with new items, and service was very good.
Wifi is available but iffy depending on you location in the hotel. We had to go out and stand in the hall to get a signal. Not a problem, as everything was downloaded and we could take it back to the room to read.
Coca tea was available 24/7 to help with altitude sickness if needed. Also oxygen is available.
English is a little difficult in the lobby personnel. We had a sewer blockage, and when I spoke with the security guard, he called the manager. I explained the problem to the manager and he told the security guard what I said. Next thing I know, they brought us 2 rolls of toilet paper! I had him come to the room and I pointed out the problem, he smiled and said "OH". He was back promptly and took care of the problem.
Traveling in a foreigh country is fun, challenging and rewarding.
