HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 March 2017

Really liked this place. Quick walk to the main square, cute decor, and large clean rooms. The breakfast is also great and served on a pretty terrace. One day we had to leave a little before breakfast started, so they kindly made us juice early and packed us some bread to bring with us. Thanks for a great stay!

The hotel is well-located, about a 10 minute walk from the Plaza de Armas, very clean, well-appointed, and included a wonderful breakfast each day. Jesus, the day manager was most helpful with his suggestions for shopping, sites, and arranging wonderful a trip to Colca Canyon. We...

Very nice owner with excellent English made us welcome with beers as soon as we arrived. A good (fairly standard) breakfast served the next day on a lovely terrace right outside our room. This is a beautiful Spanish-style building and very convenient for the town centre (you have to cross the river to get to it but it is a...

We spent there 2 days, great value for money, cheapest yet most comfortable hotel we encounter in Peru so far. Close to the center 7 minutes walk, hosts speak english and were very helpful with providing info about city and activities around.

Overall, a nice hotel. The maid/cook who served breakfast was incredibly sweet. It's not a breakfast buffet. It's about a 15 minute walk to the plaza de armas. They can help you book a tour to Colca but didn't really have any other tours to help book.

We loved our stay here. The hotel is so charming and lovely. The rooms are really great and the terras in front of the room is nice. From the hotel it's about a 10 minutes walk to the centre of town. The breakfast is nice with lots of fresh fruits.
