Recent guest reviews
Our fight into Juliaca got cancelled due to poor weather conditions and thus missed our first night at this hotel. Upon checking in, a day later, the front desk said we would not be charged for the night we missed. This was a grand gesture on the part of the hotel as it was not their fault we missed arriving the night before. After check-in we were immediately led to our rooms and offered cocoa tea and pure oxygen to help ease the altitude sickness. As my daughter and I were fighting colds and fevers just prior to leaving for vacation coupled with the altitude sickness this was a great help. The hotel offers great views of Lake Titicaca. Outside the breakfast area the hotel had 2 Alpaca’s to view which my 2 girls loved. The breakfast was very good and plentiful. More on a European standard rather then North American standard (so healthier). Hotel offers complimentary cocoa tea in the front lobby at all hours of the day. The rooms were very spacious and easily accommodated the 4 of us. The room was equipped with a modern washroom with plenty of hot water. The hotel is outside of town but a very cheap taxi ride to the centre of town. We paid 7 Sol at the low end and 10 Sol at the high end. ($2-3 USD). Wifi is provided free of charge and worked well during our stay. This was a truly great find and I would definitely stay again.
Stayed here for 4 nights. Staff are efficient and helpful. I got a room with lovely views of Lake Titicaca. Buffet breakfast is delicious. Nightly turndowns with yummy dessert left on the table for me to munch on after a full day of activities. During my downtime, I chilled at the gazebos, appreciated the peaceful atmosphere and took tons of photos of their resident alpacas. WiFi is excellent as well.
Even though you are a fair way out of town..the hotel was great. You are right on Lake Titicaca and we were only there for 2 nights One night they had a show with local dancing and music and their chef was excellent ....his meals were of a very high quality. As most people stay there for the tours of lake only, the hotel was surprisingly very comfortable and the staff were exceptional..
The WiFi is spotty. Can go hours with great reception, then hours fading in and out. Walls are thin so nose from adjacent rooms is annoying. TV goes in and out. Got a free bottle of water (for brushing teeth, etc.) on the first day, but not the second. Florescent lights are slow to come on and sometimes flicker. I got my wake up calls. Companions didn't. Showers have low pressure when many guests get up at the same like (duh, this is a tour group hotel). Breakfast this morning-- finally after several of us reminded them, they finally put out scrambled eggs.
We were quite disappointed. The whole hotel is old and has the appearance of a socialist recreational home from the 80s. I would think it needs a complete renovation, especially the bathrooms. I would certainly not give it four stars. When we checked in, we were given a small card together with the key saying that this is a not smoking hotel. And the lady insisted that this is the money important thing in the hotel. But they did not tell us how to find our room. How absolutely service quality being the most important thing? The only asset is the view and the quite nice restaurants with lake view. It was rated fifth best hotel in Puno on TripAdvisor. If that is the case, hotel qualify in the region must be an issue.
Stayed here for almost one week. The staff was great and the hotel was very welcoming. There was nice views of the Lake Titicaca too, from the restaurant and some rooms. Also, the restaurant menu (lunch and dinner) was very good with nice options, for a good value. I had some problems with the altitude and the staff was very attentive with me.
Stayed in the Hotel Sonesta Puno for two nights on 16th and 17th October in a party of 25 other travellers. As with all Hotels on this holiday the passports were handed in at reception for photo-copies to be made. Passports were usually available for collection a couple of hours later. The Hotel Overlooks Lake Titicaca which gives great views from the restaurant / breakfast room. A short Taxi ride for about seven Peruvian Sol, about $2 USD will take four people one way into the centre of Puno where a greater variety of restaurants can be found. Bedrooms very clean and quiet with a radiator warming the room which was needed.
Stayed here 2 nights. Lovely grounds, great staff, very welcoming and helpful. Selection 3 options for eating, tried the restaurant and pizzaria both very good and value for money. Room spacious and clean. No criticism of the hotel at all. There isn’t much nearby so you’re likely to stay in the hotel unless you have trips booked.
Very nice hotel overlooking the lake. Nicely appointed rooms and very friendly staff. As the hotel is at the edge of town, eating at the restaurant is the only option unless you want to taxi into town (I would not recommend walking). The food and service were very good for the location. One thing to note, the hotel is unable to change large bills or convert money, so plan accordingly. If I ever go back to Puno, I would be more than happy to stay at this hotel again.
The hotel is located just outside the city but with a fantastic view to the lake. One taxi to the town center costs 3 USD The rooms are clean , big with two double beds. Bathroom has been renovated. Breakfast is good. The plugs are not compatible with European standard...since the hotel was full they did not have adapters but they offered to charge our equipment at the reception.
