Qelqatani Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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!

This place is older and the rooms are run down. The bathrooms, while bigger than average left a lot to be desired related to the shower. The heater in the room does not really heat at all. You have to ask for a hair dryer at the front desk. Close walking distance to the pedestrian area, but all in all not my favorite place.

The Qelqatani is an old-fashioned hotel in the best sense. Rooms, meals, the staff's politeness, all make you feel special and a little bit in a yesterday's world. The Puno surroundings are remarkable and unique. The Titicaca Lake is a must, but Puno itself has a lot to offer.

This is a great find and a good bargain for a three-star hotel in the center of Puno's action. Rooms are good-sized and comfortable with space heaters there when you need them on cold nights. Hot water made the showers desirable. I was there with a group and would recommend it, especially for those with large groups since the dining room was perfectly fit for the group in the evenings. Breakfasts were also excellent.
