We stayed here a week, nice clean room, quiet at night & good for sleeping. A good breakfast was included. The building is in a garden setting which was occasionally nice to sit in and watch the birds. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk (or short taxi ride) to the central square and very close to shopping and a mall with a supermarket. The only downside is there was no heating and it gets cold in Cajamarca at night.

Quaint colonial style buildings characterise this hotel. Rooms are large with huge beds, which are not overly comfortable, and well equipped bathrooms. The hotel is quiet even though it is in the centre of town as it is located behind a high wall which excludes most noise. Staff are helpful and friendly, but service is average. The bar is seldom attended and range of drinks is limited. The restaurant is a bare bones room. The menu is quite extensive but the quality of the food is average. There is no heat in the rooms and this combined with the high altitude and rainfall makes everything in the room feel rather damp and cold. WiFi works throughout the hotel but is slow. Same day laundry service is offered but quality is average. Overall a comfortable quiet place to stay if expectations are lowered
