A palace in Puno! Jul 29, 2009
Luxury accommodations in Puno! This wasn't a hostel, it was a hotel at a super bargain price. For only 8 USD extra, you get a double twin room with furniture (two chairs! Two tables! Two reading lights with electricity!) a spacious bathroom with towels, hot water, and a 'modern' well-kept decor. No paint cans or cemicals taking up counter space. Toilet was sleek and black, always worked and wasn't stained or wobbly. The room included a working TV with remote and even channels to watch, as well as a mini-mini bar for late-night munchies(pringles, chocolate, coke and even beer!)
After our previous hostel experiences, we were dissapointed to only have one night surrounded by all this luxury.
Our expectations were beyond low arriving in Puno having been without hot water showers and electricity in Aguas Calientes. At first, the neighbourhood did not seem promising, but only because our collectivo driver pointed us in the wrong direction, and the hostel is actually quite close to great shopping, restaurants and bank machines. The staff were wonderful, helpful and made sure our stay was a pleasant as possible. Carried our bags to our room, let us use their office for emails, Coca tea on arrival and a satisfying continental breakfast.
Highly reccommend splurging for at least one night of comfort as the little bit of extra pampering is really appreciated after cold Cusco, and before rustic Amantani.
