El Tumi

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

As soon as you see the city's glaciers you know you are close to arrived and Hotel Tumi is ready for you with its monumental sacro knife "Tumi" at the front door. You will be received with "mate de coca" which you can have any time (is free). I suggest to ask a room near the window so you can delight the hood. Internet is fine. You have warm water at morning, but during afternoon you don't have it (at least I saw it in my experience). Food service is free and the menus are great! They have some spa places but they were not operative in march2019. People who attend is kind. Breakfast is fine (breads with butter a juice and coffee anytime) and helps for altitude adaptation. If you need safe transportation, they know colleagues just front of their hotel. An historic note: The Tumi is from Inca's civilization and In Huaraz, the "Chavin civilization" was before them.

I had stayed at this hotel with my family several times since I yeasty a little kid and each of them had been a pleasure! The hotel is really nice and comfortable, with everything one needs to have a pleasant stay in the city. My favourite part tho is the restaurant on the ground floor (Last time I went there was last December): the food is just delicious (great breakfast options!) and the service is great. The waiters have been there since many years ago and they always make you feel welcome and give you suggestions or help when asked, specially Sr. Patricio! It was nice to go back to this hostel after so many years and I will always recommend it!

I have stayed at Hotel Tumi twice for several days at a time. This is a very nice, very affordable 3 star hotel. Rooms are generally quiet but I would specifically ask for a quiet room as there is a meeting room that can have parties. The streets have some traffic but traffic noise was not bad. Always take ear plugs to the third world anyway. I have heard sometimes that there can be problems with hot water but I never experienced that. The rooms are nice with some woodwork. They are spacious enough for two people to lay out and sort trekking/climbing gear. Bathroom is basic but all you need. Staff is very nice. I was very sick once staying there. The staff heard me vomiting and came to my room with toilet paper and tea. They offered to take me to the hospital. Place is very secure. The restaurant in the hotel is fantastic. There are plenty of good and great restaurants within walking distance, but the one in the hotel is as good as any in town. Nice little bar makes great pisco sours, but be careful. They do down very easily but pisco is pisco -- real headache material if over done and that is not good if you are having any trouble with the altitude. And if that is a problem, I believe this hotel has oxygen, but it is always good to ask before you reserve. If I go to Huaraz again, I'll stay at El Tumi. Very comfortable, affordable and convenient

We had to pleasure of staying at Hotel El Tumi with my mother, father, and family friends. First of all we had an amazing time discovering Huaraz, it's lagunas but what really left us satisfied was the lovely and good service of Mr. Moner Cruz who made us laugh constantly and was so nice. I have traveled around the world and Huaraz will always have a special place in me.

Our stay here was very comfortable with friendly service. We were here for about 5 days and we had clean serviced rooms and bedding. The hotel is nice a central and easy to walk virtually anywhere important. Noise was a bit of a problem.

I stayed at El Tumi a couple of times during my climbing trips to Cordillera Blanca. The hotel is nice and clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. El Tumi is located within 10 minutes of walk to Plaze de Armas but on a quiet street. So it is easy to get to the central Huaraz area for restaurants and shopping but you don't have to deal with the hustle and the crowds in the evenings and on weekends. Highly recommended.

I had been staying in truly awful hotels in various remote towns for work, and then came to Huaraz on the way back and heard that this place Tumi was the best in town. Well, it was fairly clean and comfortable, and had hot water, so that was just wonderful for me after days in crappy places. So although it was great for me to have the simple pleasures of an ensuite bathroom and hot water, on an international scale it's not really very good - internet is shocking, rooms are small, dark and old, and it's just generally a bit skanky and tired. One good thing though is the restaurant - I don't usually eat in hotels but I was too tired to bother going out, and it was surprisingly good, and not too pricey.

place is nice clean and there is not toomatch noise during the night. The f9d in the hotel is very good and there are different kinds of breakfasts. The enterence for wheelchairs must be a little whider.

We arrived very early, before 06.00pm and we didn't had a reservation but the guy from the reception was sleeping in the very comfortable lobby so he opened up for us and we could get in. We stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms are not big, but they are clean even as the bathroom with a very nice hot shower. They also have a very nice spa, with sauna, massage and a very nice jacuzzi witch we used one time after coming back from a cold trip! The restaurant is also nice. It's near the centre but you don't hear honking taxi's rushing by. We only didn't understand the breakfast. On TripAdvisor it says 'free breakfast', but there is no such thing as a buffet or something so we ordered from a menu. It was a very nice breakfast but we had to pay for it extra. It's not really much but i think they have to make that more clear. And if there will be at least one person at the reception and one in the restaurant who speaks a little bit English it would be much easier for a lot of tourists to conversate.

It's not far from the main square. All services working. Quite neighbourhood. Cable tv--- service good . Local channels international channels. Front desk people up to any enquieries. Taxis charge 4 soles everywhere in town. There are italian restaurants around.
