“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

Quiet hotel in a great location, I felt really safe... 2 minutes away from the main street !! Rooms are big enough and have a portable heater that takes half an hour to heat the room. Friendly staff, I left my tip in the bed twice and when I was back was placed in my bed side table (!). Wifi works well. Its restaurant was not very appealing for me but you can find several alternatives around the hotel.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

I had a night before meeting meet my tour group at the Juliaca airport and could not find a hotel available in Juliaca. That turned out to be a blessing. Hotel Qelqatani offered a shuttle service from the airport for $10 (US), and I was able to arrange that via email with no difficulty. I enjoyed the shuttle ride, taking in the scenery. I saw llamas! The ride is about 1 hour, but it was so worth it to avoid staying in Juliaca (which is not a nice place).

The hotel staff were friendly and most spoke pretty good English, which I very much appreciated. I only had the one night, but I wanted to see Lake Titicaca, so the staff helped me figure out how to walk to the lake (it took about 15 minutes), giving me a map and giving me landmarks to look for so I would not get lost. Dinner was very good, but I was a little disappointed that the $15 menu advertised in the book that was in my room did not exist. That menu had several choices for full dinners, including drinks, appetizers, entree, and dessert. I had my choices all decided when I got to the dining room, but the waiter had no idea what I was talking about. Maybe that's just something they stopped doing and never removed the information from that book? I ended up making a different choice from the menu provided in the dining room and the food was tasty and well-prepared. The cost was very reasonable.

The shower was great, although the water pressure varied a bit throughout the shower. The bathroom lighting was kind of strange, with one set of lights only staying on for a few minutes before needing to be manually turned on again. This made for a fairly dark shower since they did not stay on long enough for me to take a full shower.

This hotel is on a nice quiet street that is easy to miss if you're out walking around, and it is close to the main square and the shopping areas. There are plenty of places to eat if you don't want to eat in the hotel. The hotel also arranged a shuttle for me to return to the Juliaca airport the next morning for the same price of $10.

There was some confusion with my billing (I booked thru Agoda and paid in advance, but did after about 31 hours of straight travel time was not sure about when I arrived), which I realized after I'd gotten home, and the hotel was friendly & prompt in refunding my overpayment. In fact, every time I contacted them via email they responded almost immediately.

I highly recommend this hotel. The value is excellent. There is free wi-fi and they provide 2 computers for guest use in the lobby. I also saw an oxygen tank, which I suppose some people would need given the altitude.

A small hotel on a quiet street, yet near the pedestrian mall, the station and the harbour. Rooms are spacious and floors are serviced by elevator. Breakfast adequate with custom egg service.

We stayed here two nights after arriving from Colca Canyon and then going to Lake Titicaca the next day. The rooms were clean but a bit dark as have several of our rooms been in Peru. The staff was helpful, even loaning their phone to make a call. We had laundry done and it was clean, pressed,and cheap. Breakfast was good with the general selection and some hot items. We did have a queen sized bed.

Very good hotel: comfortable, quiet, good breakfast (with cooked breakfast as well).
The only thing I did not like was the attitude of two recepcionists who were not welcoming at all.
However, I would stay there again. Oxygen supplies available.

This family owned hotel is 1 block away from the main pedastrian walk. All good restaurant and good shopping are just minutes away.
Hotel itself has most the ammenities to satisfy the travellers. Rooms are on the small side and old fashion CRT TV are still there. Portable heater is used to keep the room warm, no aircondition necessary. Large bath room, however, the counter doesn't offer much space for personal toiletry. No hair drier in the bath room, you will have to ask for it.
Bedding is the old fashion blanket and bed cover, feels heavy when sleeping.

The hotel is centrally located in this sleepy town, convenient for eating places, tour agencies and banks. The breakfast is very good with Andean products. Rooms have heating which can be useful on cold nights. However it is very dark and dingey, with inadequate lighting in the rooms.
