Our tour pick these lodgings and we stayed at 3 star hotels along the way, this one was more like a 2 1/2 compared to the rest. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, water pressure good, but was hard to get the hot/cold in balance for the shower. They use space heaters and the wifi is nonexistent in the 4th floor if your room is in the back. Good wifi in the lobby and restaurant. Breakfast was very good Location is good as it's only a block away from the pedestrian zone.

Comfortable stay. The rooms and bathroom were clean, but the hotel is a bit dated. Good overall, just not a modern hotel. Location is about a block and half away from the main street and plenty of restaurants. Ask the staff for eggs for breakfast other wise the buffet choices are limited. Good value for the money.

This is a decent, clean, comfortable hotel within close walking distance (only a couple of minutes) to the main pedestrian street and the Plaza de Armas. The staff were friendly and accommodating. When we asked to switch to a different room because of street noise, they showed us several rooms to choose from. Ultimately, none of them were quieter (we were able to hear loud music and chanting starting at about 11pm until about 4am - Peruvians apparently were celebrating the new year early in a plaza a few blocks away, not sure if there would normally be that much noise), but this was not the fault of the hotel. We appreciated that they tried for us. The rooms were clean and spacious. The bathroom had good hot water and water pressure. The rooms also had a space heater and extra blankets to keep warm on the nights that fell below freezing. The hotel was equipped with an elevator. Breakfast was okay - an average selection and they served made to order eggs. We would stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We were made to pay extra for having two people in a queen sized bed, even though the room would have been exactly the same if only one person were in the room! When we booked the reservation online, this policy was not clear, otherwise we would have never booked here. It's an unjust policy, as there's no extra cost incurred to the hotel to have two people in the room. The hotel staff was not at all understanding of this.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. This hotel was such good value for money! Bathroom was great, hot shower, comfy beds. The place felt really luxurious compared to the hostels we'd been staying in. It was so clean. Just what we needed! It's just around the corner from the plaza, so good location. Really secure luggage storage available. The breakfast was great too - bread, ham, cheese, jams, pancakes, avocado, fruit, cakes, etc. Definitely recommend!

Lovely spacious rooms with large bathroom attached. All clean and room serviced daily. Friendly staff. Large breakfast room with large variety of food and drink. Happy to store luggage. Wifi was not good on the fourth floor. View from window not outstanding either. Had a lift, good if you have heavy cases. Would definitely stay again. Good value.

We stayed at the hotel for our 2 day trip to Lake Titicaca. It has everything that you need for a nice warm night of sleep to get you ready for the day. I advise you to ask for a room that does not face the street. Peruvians are very attached to their car horn and do not stop even in the middle of the night. I cannot recommend the restaurant. The service was extremely slow ,the food was blah, and the price was not convenient.

Located in an amazing city, close walking distance to thoroughfare with host of dining and shopping choices, the qelqatani exceeded expectation in both its atmosphere and hospitality. Of particular note, Efrains attention to detail and friendly chats, and Lucy at the front desks welcomes, made staying at the hotel a real pleasure.

This was a nice place in a busy city of Puno. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were extremely friendly and the rooms were quite spacious. The breakfast in the morning was a great start to the day.

This is a quaint little hotel, that has amazingly wonderful and friendly staff with good size rooms and facilities. The hotel is in a central location to the main restaurant strip in Puno (about a 200m walk). It’s staff are friendly and efficient, even going above and beyond to contact a bus company to get my travel companion on a 6am bus to Arequipa that were no longer taking bookings for the trip. They also happily booked me a shuttle to Juliaca airport and allowed me to pay them by card and they paid the driver cash. The room itself was good, the bed decent and comfortable. The shower was ok, it took quite a while to get hot water out of the shower though, it felt like a good 5-10 minute wait (That is really the only negative). The free breakfast is served from 6am and was good and again the staff fantastic. As my mate had a 6am pick-up he was frantically trying to make a sandwich to take with him. When the staff saw him try to wrap it in a napkin they ran off and came back with some sandwich bags and offered to help pack some more food from the breakfast buffet for him . Cosy little place to stay in Puno, highly recommended!
