“Friendly, clean, and peaceful”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in October, 2011. For S/.70 (~USD$25), it fit our needs just great.

The location is good -- barely 1/2 block of the main plaza. They have parking enough for a few cars, more than enough for our two motorcycles. We had a ground floor room (no need to haul our gear upstairs). We could hear some noise from the room next door (adjoinging bathrooms, I think), but we heard no noise from upstairs. The only time it wasn't quiet was one morning when a group was getting up early to tour the canyon. For about 15 minutes, we could hear them getting their acts together in the courtyard, then we could go back to sleep.

The courtyard is pleasant and quiet, perfect for reading in the sun or doing some motorcycle maintenance.

The room was simple and clean, with some original artwork to jazz it up a bit. There were plenty of blankets available, and best of all, hot water bottles were delivered in the evening! Our host said heat was available for an extra charge, but we didn't need it. The carpet was a bit worn, but the bathroom was newly tiled and very clean. Hot water was plentiful, although I had to ask once at first. Then they turned the magic valve or whatever, and we had plenty of hot water for the rest of our stay. The beds were firm, and the toilet paper was the most luxurious we'd seen in weeks.

Breakfast was fine, not notable either excellent or bad. We had several other meals in the restaurant, and they were all good. The restaurant doesn't have a full menu, just what they are making that day, but it was good and there were always a bunch of locals eating there, too.

The brochure says Internet, but it wasn't available. No wi-fi, and they offered me the use of the front desk computer, but it was so slow, I didn't bother.

I believe that they also arrange local excursions, as well as direct bus connections to and from Puno, but we did not take advantage of any of these services.

Overall, we found La Pascana to be friendly, clean, and peaceful, and good value for the money.

Reviewed August 3, 2008

La Pascana was by far the worst place we stayed at during our trip to Peru. It was booked by Colonial Tours, the agent who arranged our two day / one night trip to Colca Canyon.

There were three major disappointments for us:

1. The room stank of disinfectant
2. They woke us up 30 minutes before our requested wake-up (5 AM instead of 5)
3. Worst of all, they didn't serve us breakfast despite the fact that it was included in the price. They seemed to serve a bunch of people before us - all the tables in the dining room had dirty plates and half empty glasses, but they had no interest in clearing a table for us. We walked in once at 6 AM to find several others waiting for service. Then we walked in again at 6:15 to find the front desk guy walking out of the dining room to avoid us.

The bed was also horribly uncomfortable - it dipped in so badly in the middle that two people simply couldn't sleep in in. Thankfully there was an extra single bed in the room, which we did make us of.

  • Liked — location - a block from the main square
  • Disliked — the service, or lack thereof
