“Excellent value for money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

The hotel is aprox. 20 minutes away from the airport and close to Plaza de Armas in the historic center of the city.
Check in was quick
The room was large, with a comfortable bed, a table and some chairs; tiled flor,
the bathroom a bit small - but also clean.

Internet (wifi) was complimentary and at good speed.
The staff friendly

Breakfast: very basic (eggs, bread and coffee) were the standard.

Summary: good value for money - a recommendable basic place to stay.

I visited Portada del Sol Hotel for one night on my way to northern Peru. My flight arrived late but the staff were accommodating and helpful. My Spanish is very basic, but we managed to sort everything out on arrival. The rooms were clean and comfortable, showers worked well and there was little noise despite being located on a busy street. Free access to fast internet on the hotel computers was appreciated. I would recommend this hotel to travellers coming to Trujillo.

Stayed May 2013, traveled solo

We stayed 3 nights in November. The staff was very friendly, but spoke little English. The staff wad very helpful and we were able to communicate well. The staff helped with tour bookings and taxis. The breakfast was OK.. We had a late departure on Cruz Del Sol to Guayaquil and the let us stay in our rooms until 8 PM. This was a very nice touch. The hotels location is convenient to restaurants and shops. I don't t think you can find a better hotel for the price!

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room with a patio.

The staff was nice but seemed put "out of their way" to help us. (No English at all just FYI.) the hotel was mainly clean and we were pleasantly surprised to not find any bugs on our room since the staircase was a little shady. The rooms were very basic and super small but the hot water worked. Breakfast was included and again very simple but the restaurant staff was very friendly. It was 7-8 blocks from the Plaza de Armas so a little further away.

Very disappointed in this place. Read reviews on Trip Advisor and so we tried it. Room was spacious and clean, bathroom had lots of mold. Electrical system from 1920s. Plug in bathroom didn't work and sparked. Front desk seemed to have never had a guest check in.....very, very slow. An overall sense of grunge in halls, stairways. Taxi driver from airport warned us to not walk around at night near the hotel. Checked out after one night.
