This hotel is used mostly by large tour groups. Had we known, we would have selected another option. So many guests that were rude that it detracted from the positives. We arrived at 6:00am (luxury bus from Cusco to Puno) and didn't expect our room to be ready, but wanted to eat breakfast. We tried to get them to let... More

We stayed here as part of Gate 1 Tours. The hotel is one block away from the main square with many places to eat. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very tasty. Wifi could have been better but we found this to be a problem at all hotels in Peru. Since this is probably the highest... More

This hotel is just off of the square by 1/2 block. We stayed here part of a Gate1 Tour. There is a four-block long shopping avenue just off of the plaza. At the end of the shopping avenue, to the right is another plaza. We found the hotel to be charming and delightful. We upgraded to the spa room, Room... More

The Royal Inn Hotel is centrally located in Puno, Peru. The best bars and restaurants are within an easy walk. The rooms were pleasant and quiet at night. The bathroom was very nice with lovely tile and woodwork throughout. The restaurant offers a nice atmosphere for breakfast and I'm sure it was equally nice for dinner.

We joined Gate1 Travel tour and stayed in this hotel on September for two nights in Room 212. The hotel décor was old style which we didn't care for it. The room was clean and that's was the main thing. There was some kind of festival celebrating going on during the weekend that we stayed there so at night it... More

We did not stay at this hotel, but noticed a 'special' 3 course meal advertised on the board outside the hotel for 'tourists' in their restaurant. Price was 30 Peruvian soles each (about AUD$ 12.50), sounded like good value. My daughter and I arrived around 7.00 PM and were advised we could supply our own wine (BYO) free of corkage... More

The hotel is well located, close to the "Plaza de armas" and Calle Lima, the street where we find most of the Puño restaurants. Good quality hotel, high quality mattresses. Friendly staff. Hearty and diverse breakfast. But the decoration is outmoded, to be reviewed.

The staff was amazingly friendly. Our heater did not work, so they brought us up a floor unit. The TV had few choices. The breakfasts were some of the best in Peru. Beds-great. Cleanliness-great. Staff knowledge-excellent.
