I have stayed at this little hotel in Trujillo a few times now because I have had an excellent experience each time. The price per room is more than reasonable, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff are wonderfully helpful, and they serve a very nice fresh breakfast every morning. They have 4 floors and don't have an elevator,... More

My family and I took a trip to Trujillo and we had an amazing time, most of it because of this hotel and their knowledgeable staff. This hotel is the epitome of a family business, the owner (Señora Margarita) is often the receptionist, her son is the bellman, and the cousin is the cab and chauffeur driver. The hotel itself...

Let's start with the good stuff! The staff are helpful but little English. The rooms are clean. They arrange tours.(and even help when silly tourists like us book in for the wrong day!!) Breakfast is okay- from 7am. Eggs, bread, jam, coffee, juice. Towels folded into cute little animal shapes! The not so good: The 3 day special rate offered... More

Clean, comfortable, value for money, excellent friendly staff. This is not for people who want creature comforts. It's clean, fairly basic in decor and finishes but everything works (hot water was fine but there was a hint that with more people it would have been a bit erratic). WIFI, PC and printer (free). TV is fine with a couple of... More

This lodge is located in a nice suburb. Close to everything. Had some problems with hot water but i thinks its usual in peru. What I love of this place is the lovely staff. They make you life easier. They give you advice and help you with the bus schedule. They are just so helpful.

El Escudero Lodge in Trujillo is located in good part of town. The rooms are a good size if a little noisy. There's a great breakfast here but what makes this place are the lovely people who run it. They're happy to help and make this place what it is.

Bedrooms pretty comfortable, clean and large; however, hot waqter was a problem...you can hardly get anyif the place is full. The area around the hotel is not very nice either. If you go in your car, this place can be ok, no food though around.

“As many hotels in Peru, El Escudero do not have elevators so if you have issues climbing up 4 levels of stairs perhaps your should mention that you desire one of the rooms by the common area, which by the way, may be a little noisy as people tend to gather around here while they wait on their tour guides and breakfast.”

“Not sure if any of the rooms are away from the street but if so choose that AND away from the stairs.”
