We booked hotel well in advance and had reservations confirmed and a very kind guy Alexandro came to meet us at the station. BUT, on the way to the hotel he has told us that we could not get our rooms because they had some problems and end up overbooked (the owner was away at the moment). The rooms we got instead were really disappointing, not very clean and with shared bathrooms...Next day I told Alexandro that we were unhappy with the accommodation and that we will be moving to another hotel, he took the criticism very well and with lots of understanding and apology. We found another hotel very near by, the hotel was clean so we took the rooms, but sadly had no atmosphere at all. So each day we went back to Pachamama for meals, fun, advices and that became our base. Pachamama includes a very nice and cozy restaurant with great freshly made food, stone oven baked pizzas...
For every advice or when we were organizing our trips around Colca Canyon we would each time go back to Pachamama and Mirko would kindly and friendly offer us advice and organize transport, negotiating with the local guy (he didn't need to do that since we were not their guests and it obviously consumed his time). We had very good time with those guys and Mirko's family and all about the rooms was long forgotten. They made our trip to Cobanaconde and wonderful places we visited around unforgettable!!
