Good location near main square, supermarket on corner. Staff excellent, very helpful despite little English. Very good breakfast. No heat in room, unfortunately, but lots of plugs and a TV! Staff gave us extra blankets and even brought us hot water bottles when we were cold (no heat in rooms). Excellent shower, lots of hot water.

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...

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...
