“unique hotel and great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

The friendly staff make this hotel. Of course could also say position overlooking town and views across canyon from the bar. Stay here if you want some extra comfort after hiking the canyon - we stayed in the top room with jacuzzi amid Fawlty Towers-esq efforts to produce hot water for the tub. It was the cook who solved the issue in the end. Despite this and large tour group in that night buffet dinner was surprisingly good. Thanks to Moses for hospitality and still owe you that flag.

We stayed here while visiting the Colca Canyon and were the only family there. The decor is unique and interesting. Our rooms were at the end of picturesque pathways.
Although the weather was cold the rooms had heaters and were cozy. The food was quite good and the entire staff lined up to wish us on our way when we left.

This is the best hotel in Cabanaconde, a bit off the beaten path if you're visiting the Colca Canyon in Peru. The elevation is quite high (3800m) so take it easy when you first arrive!

Staff are very friendly and helpful. The decor is quite unique - it reminded us of a toadstool village with the funny colors and roofs, and the unique shape of the room (round) with the stone colored bathroom off to one side.

The bathroom amenities are pretty basic - towels, basic shampoo and soap (bring your own conditioner and lotion otherwise you'll feel like sandpaper!). No hair dryer and no fridge. Heaters can be brought into the room upon request.

Breakfast is basic and typical of the region - eggs, ham and cheese with bread, tea, juice and coffee. Free wi-fi. Lovely views from the property since it's one hill. We met the owner by chance when we were in Cabanaconde, and he was an incredibly lovely man who kindly offered one of his staff to get us on our way when trekking in the canyon area.

It's a rustic type of getaway - I would stay here if in the area again.

We stayed just overnight on a visit to Colca Canyon. Basic but comfortable rooms. The decor was interesting - might not be to everyone's taste. One of the two rooms we had came with a heater but we had to ask for one for the other. It turned out to be noisy and less than effective. Wi-Fi worked in common areas but not in the rooms. Overall, our stay was comfortable, service was good and one couldn't ask for more in a small town in a fairly out-of-the-way place.

The dinner, on the other hand, was quite outstanding. It was a set meal as a part of a Colca Canyon package but there were plenty of choices for the main course (including alpaca, chicken and trout) and options for the main course and dessert as well. All very good and recommended. Breakfast was also good and plentiful.

I stayed three nights while in the area. The location of the hotel just above the town square can't be beat. Also unbeatable were the staff, both front desk, especially Moises, and in the restaurant/bar, who were extremely pleasant, professional and helpful. The food was good with five star-like presentation. My room had a bit of personality to it and a nice view out over the town.

We stayed here for a couple of nights to explore the area. The room was very basic and had enough blankets to keep us warm. There was no TV or heating in our room. Wifi is mostly in the common areas but occasionally we'd get one bar of signal in the room. There wasn't much outside noise. We had to let the shower run for a while on occasion to get the water hot enough but it was never hot enough to fill the bathtub (not that we minded). There's a bar and restaurant attached to the hotel which served quite good quality food. They greeted guests each night with a complimentary pisko sour, which was a nice touch. There are common areas but we found other guests pretty much kept to themselves. Reception staff were helpful except for when we needed to leave early on check out. They knew we were catching an early bus but there was no one around to let us out. This was very frustrating because all the exits were padlocked and no one was at reception! I ended up finding a phone and ringing reception but no one answered so we just had to wait. Someone eventually turned up at 6:10 am and let us out but we had to leg it to the bus in order to get a seat. Apart from that, this place isn't a bad option for Cabanaconde.

Room Tip: Rooms near reception should get wifi but will be a little noisier.
