Recreo Hotel
Ranked #15 of 37 Hotels in Trujillo
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The people at the restaurant are very nice -- very accommodating and very helpful. The food at the restaurant is tasty, but the breakfasts are boring. The cleaning staff is also very nice, patient. Some of the "bell boys" and ladies in the administration are not so nice. The rooms are tiny and some strong sewer odors come through the toilets. This hotel could be nicer if it was well maintained throughout the year and all the personnel was better trained in customer service.

Room Tip: Ask for the largest room they have.
Stayed: December 2012, traveled with family

We found this hotel being advertised at the airport. Location is not bad being close, 5 blocks, to the main plaza. The hallways are very dark, carpet being thin shows signa of aging. Bathroom are outdated. Rooms are small with no special fixtures. Cleanliness is the worst, roaches are crawling thru doors, bathroom and beds. At one point we count as many as 10, on different sizes, it became so bad that the manager on duty changes us to another room at midnight. Unless you dont care or you are too tires to notice dont go. There are better hotels in the area. One word: disgusting

hotel staff were at the local airport inviting travelers, the pictures looked nice,they told us if we did not like this hotel we could leave no questions asked, when we arrived I asked the staff for the nearest pay phone and they said I could make a call from the desk "no charge." The room had a musty odor, no ac, small, only a fan, the bathroom had roaches, someone came with a spray, I requested another room they did not have another 3 beds room, at that point I just wanted to leave, so around midnite we left this hotel and moved to a hotel nearby, remember the phone call I made when I first checked in? well they charged me 10 soles, a pay phone charges 50 cents. I payed the 10 soles, asked for a receipt and left that nasty place. I do not recommend this hotel

I ended up staying here since there was a last minute change of plans so I decided I wasn't going to be too picky. The hotel looks decent from outside, in a central area in downtown Trujillo.

The good:

Service: service was good, front desk was always helpful
Computers available in lobby, with decent internet speed
Mini fridge in room, useful especially when very hot
fan in room-I would have loved a/c, but I wasn't going to be too picky
not expensive
breakfast is included

The bad:
No iron available, only iron service $ (although not expensive, 1 shirt is 2 soles but I still would have opted to iron my own clothes if it was available)
bathroom was dirty (found some ants in the sink and shower, had to rinse everything, always wear flip flops , damp smell in the bathroom
room is very small, there is not a lot of room to move
Obviously, if you travel in summer, it is extremely hot in the room, you'll be thankful for the fan but wish for A/C
It's quite noisy, thin-paper walls, you can easily hear conversations from other rooms
breakfast is eggs mixed with pieces of ham (since I don't eat ham, I asked if there were other options, but they aren't).


If you stay one night, it's ok but if you plan to stay a couple days in Trujillo, I suggest spending a bit more for something better.
