We absolutely loved staying at the Tierra Viva Puno. The hotel was in a great location, just off the main Plaza. The staff were incredibly kind and took care of everything we could have asked for. The breakfast was excellent. Try the fresh squeezed juice! Also, they had a couple different breakfast items every day. It was fun to see what they came up with :)
As a side note, if you are sensitive noise, hotels on the plaza may not be for you. This hotel was VERY nice, but the whole are is very noisy. My boyfriend and I are NOT sensitive to noise (I'm from Chicago after all), but the cars drive around the plaza and honk their horns at all times of the night. Furthermore, people play music all over the plaza trying to get tourists to give them money...and I'm pretty sure that there may be a nigh club with loud bass in the area. I'm glad we were not directly on the plaza, but this was one of the noisiest ares that I've ever been to. It may be worth getting a hotel at the top of the hill and walking quite a bit to escape the noise, if you are a light sleeper. Both my boyfriend and I wore ear plugs PLUS noise canceling headphones to get through the night, and we are NOT sensitive to noise.
However, I just want to emphasize that this was not the problem of the hotel, which was fantastic. This is a problem all of the hotels on the plaza face.
Also, I recommend booking through hotels.com for a better rate. I'm not affiliated with hotels.com, but the rate we got there was considerably cheaper than any of the other booking sites we tried or going directly through the hotel.
