I spent 3 nights at this hotel, and although there had recently been an earthquake that had made a mess of the city's water mains, Luis, Felicity, Teofila and the rest of the staff did a wonderful job. They made sure water was available, and were extremely helpful and friendly throughout.

This hotel was conveniently located about 5 minutes from the bus station and 5 minutes from Huacachina oasis. I chose Hotel Ollanta because I could book it ahead of time through Pacarama and I was travelling solo so I wanted to be sure I had a place to stay. Transfer from the bus station to the hotel and back was included in the rate. As others have mentioned, Luis and Felicity were both very helpful and made all my tour arrangements for me by email before I arrived. I only had 24 hours in Ica and they made sure I was able to fit in everything I wanted to do: a dune buggy / sandboarding tour, a tour to the Islas Ballestas and a visit to the Museo de Ica. They arranged everything for me and made sure I was back to the bus station by 4:00. The hotel itself was ok. There are definitely nicer hotels in Peru but it was fine for one night. It was clean enough, there was hot water and it felt safe. As far as sleep quality went, I found it a bit noisy but nothing earplugs couldn't drown out. I was there over the holidays so the restaurant in the hotel unfortunately wasn't open. I can't comment about the area at all really because I wasn't there long enough. There were a couple of neighbourhood-style restaurants as well as a couple of small grocery stores just around the corner from the hotel. Moto taxis were aplenty and were easy to catch. I caught one from the hotel to the museum and back for 2 soles, each way.

The hotel itself is a two star, but the service is four. Luis and his Australian wife Felicity were more than helpful and made my stay in Ica quite pleasurable. The location while not directly in the city center, is an easy area to get a taxi in and the mototaxis are cheap (2 soles) for most runs. Huacachina is about ten minutes away...only about 7 in a real taxi and costs about 5 soles. There is a bar downstairs and in the morning they will make you some coffee and perhaps some rolls with it if you ask. Be forewarned that the two restaurants in the area don't open until around 11, but there are some small shops along the street. Highly recommended for a low-priced stay in Ica. Also free Wi-Fi.

Also for any tours such as to Paracas I recommend William "Le Tigre". His English is okay and his number is: 956-726464. Price to the Island from the hotel should be about 75 soles.

The hotel is really old: the bed and the pillows were terrible.
It is located too far from the Plaza de Armas and Huacachina, so you need to take a taxi to go anywhere.

BUT: nice staff, good breakfast, and free wi-fi.

We only spent one night in this hotel on our way from Nasca to Lima and booked very last minute. What a pleasant surprise to be greeted by Aussie ex-pat Felicity who not only gave us the essential tips we needed for our short stay in Ica, but who was also a great person to hang out with and learn more about all things Peru. Decent room (probably standard for a 2 star hotel) that was very clean. 5 star hospitality.

Luis & Felicity make you feel very welcome at their comfortable & clean hotel. The hotel has great views of the nearby dunes (u can even walk to the oasis if u feel energetic.) Add this to the free wifi throughout the hotel, great pisco sours in the ground floor bar & heaps of helpful advice on where to eat & day trips to the coast & local wineries. We found it a fantastic base for our stay in Ica.
