Santa Maria Inn (Puno) is a good hostal with excellent location, because there is a great supermarket on the corner, and you can find a great pharmacy inside it. We couldn't enjoy the breakfast, because my husband was not feeling very well. This Hostal provided us a good drug that helped my husband recovering. The service was good, but, the...

After leaving a disappointing stay in Cusco (with staff that seemed to just not give a damn anymore), I was so happy to be staying at a hostal where the staff really cared about their individual guests. Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff was incredibly friendly. First off they gave us a room off the main street...

We booked this through booking.com more than 5 days in advance, we read good reviews on trip advisor so were confident in our choice. When we arrived the receptionist took a long time to assign a room, when she finally did, we took the key and unlocked an already occupied room, not the greatest security..... When we told her she...

We stayed a couple of nights in June and for the money we were very impressed. As previous Reviews have stated there are 5 floors but if taking slowly all is manageable. We arrived at this alttitude and after 18 hours seemed to cope well. Hotel is ideally placed for Most locations. Plaza de Armes 5 min stroll as is...

This hotel is located close to the center of Puno and many artisan markets and cafes/restaurants. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. They can help you organize tours through the region and to the lake. Breakfast is included, and showers have hot water. Very good value for money!

We stayed in the Santa Maria Inn in April as a stopover whilst travelling from La Paz to Cusco. We arrived in the late afternoon and left early the next morning so just needed somewhere cheap and easy and this place fit the bill. Just a few minutes by taxi from the bus station, as with all buildings in the...

My wife is tired of travelling, so she stood home and I travelled alone in this trip to Peru. Two things made me book this ho(s)tel: the low price for a solo traveller and the good references in Trip Advisor. That said, IMHO, it was better than I expected. ALWAYS BEARING IN MIND THE CHEAP PRICE. There was nothing really...

We spent a week at The Santa Maria Inn while we were searching for an apartment in Puno. We found the staff to be exceptionally helpful and friendly to us and our 11 year son. The hotel is centrally located and a short walk from the Calle Lima restaurants and the Plaza de Armas. They keep the front door locked...

Although this hotel is nothing to write home about it is good value for a single at 35 soles a night (about 13 dollars). The lady who runs it is very sweet and kind. She lent me a couple of her own shawls for a few days because it was cold! It is only a few minutes walk from restaurants...
