The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff MADE this hotel. They were always so helpful and eager to help. They didn't speak much English, except the front desk staff but the restaurant and bellhop staff were so eager to help. I loved them. The breakfast was served and it had choices - including friend eggs. The room was very comfortable - especially the bed. The bathroom very clean with lots of hot water. I would stay here again.
We did not have high expectations when we booked but the hotel was nice, The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the restaurant had great food. the hotel location is perfect, just a couple of blocks away from the plaza de armas and shops and restaurants.
We stayed here for two nights when visiting Titicaca Lake. The location is absolutely perfect, just 100 metres from Plaza de Armas and dinner options. Rooms were really big, but quite old and basic. The staff was very nice and helpful. Big breakfast buffet, that they even opened up earlier just for us, so that we could have breakfast bedste our early bus to Cusco. Recommendable.
This hotel was booked for us as part of a tour of Peru for two nights and I cannot say I had high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The hotel is very well located, 2 min walk to the main square. The room was not and clean, with a nice bathroom - it even had a bathtub. Staff is very helpful and breakfast was nice
In our trip to Bolivia we spent one night at Qelqatani. When we booked we didn't have big expectations but we did it because it was recommended by Peru Hop. Puno was not Lima, Cusco, Arequipa and we were surprise to find something at the level of these big cities. Because we spent one night we cannot say much about but, for one night ,everything was perfect, room, service, breakfast, friendly staff. They have everything they advertise and it works. Many Thanks !!!
Qelqatani Hotel has fare rates, is very well located at Jr Taparaca St, in the heart of Puno downtown, 2min walking distance from Jr Lima St, where you can find most services (restaurants, shops, banks, etc) and also close to historical sites. On the top of that, the hotel is very well maintained, from the building appearance to the common spaces and room care, creating a huge contrast with the majority of unfinished buildings surrounding it. Moreover, we had a pleasant interaction with a high level and professional staff, that diligently helped us with late check out times, negotiating rates with taxi drivers and even going out in the neighborhood to find a small sweet delight they didn’t have at the menu to accompany my last coffee at the hotel. So, overall, I strongly recommend this hotel for Pune visitors.…
For the price this hotel is really good value. It’s in a great location to explore Puno from, breakfast is good, there’s a printer and computer for you to use and free WiFi. Staff are really kind and helpful and will phone taxis etc. There is oxygen in the hotel to use too should you become unwell from the altitude and you can store your luggage if you go onto an island for the night.
very nice people, nice rooms and the people very cool. 2 streets from "Lima Street" (a street withe restaurants and shops) and 3 streets from the central park of Puno and the Cathedral. Clean rooms, clean baths, big beds.
Close to city center but -slow internet -no soundproof: could hear disco 1 am + -on day of departure credit cards were not accepted (luckily we had cash but what if we didn’t?) -taxi service ordered through hotel was mixed up -there was little hot water - mostly lukewarm
We were completely shocked at how dated this hotel is, the location is away from the lake in urine soaked alleys. The bathroom is like going back to the 70s with a slippery step into a Chubb for a shower. The water to start with was brown, then finally cleared,the temperature was only just warm enough. The breakfast was average with helpful staff. We arrived from the beautiful Peru rail Titicaca train, so this was like a huge disappointment. The wifi didn’t work really even at the reception.
