We had spent the two previous nights shivering and hearing loud street noise in another hotel in Puno, so we decided to look into alternatives. The guidebook showed the Casona Colon Inn to be about two blocks away, so we walked in. We were greeted in English by a well-dressed man at the front desk. It was all so much more friendly and easy than our other hotel that we couldn't believe it. We gleefully hurried back to our first hotel, threw our clothes in our suitcases, checked out, and hurried back.
As other reviewers said, this hotel is very really old, and the views from the rooms are somewhere between so-so and ugly. But the rooms are warm, the beds are comfortable, the central location is convenient, and it was the first time in 8 days that the electricity was stable enough for me to charge both my phone and my camera. It felt luxurious!
Breakfast was OK. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was extremely good and the fireplace felt wonderful. Our waiter put little flags on each table to show where each group was from, and we could see a mix of French, Spanish, Canadian and American visitors.
We would stay here again.
