Latest Check-Ins

Can't recommend staying here. Small parking area right at the main door of the hotel. Yes, you are protected from the street but only by a fence, so you are completely visible from the street. 35sol for camping seems reasonable until your remember that the guy wants 15sol for a shower (he came down to 10sols when we showed how appalled we were at the price). They open a room for you to shower, but it's only available during certain hours. Decided just to stay in Huarez for the day and push on to the incredibly beautiful Camping Guadalupe in Caraz (30sol pp and the shower is included).

There is space for max 2 little campers or vans inside the fenced parking lot. We could use the toilets behind the reception. In the evening we could seat inside and use the good wifi. Wifi also reaches the parking lotWe payed 35 Soles without showers.

Place is ok. A bit noisy during the night, but we felt safe here. Shower for 15 soles per person is a joke, right? But who needs shower anyway? haha

It was raining a lot when we were there so the lady invite us to the common areas of the hotel to stay dry :)

Good place to spent a night in Huaraz and Plan the next hiking-trips. Stayed here with our small van, including electricity and WiFi for 35 Soles. Shower costs 15 p.P. To towncenter it's about 20 minutes to walk. Safe place to leave the car.

Still 35 s pn for 2 & 15 for a shower (inc towel, soap & shampoo).

Very easy to enter with our RV 7m lenght since it is not in the City Center. Can go to city center by taxi for 3 soles. Be careful : no RV longer than 7m ! The managers of the Hotel are very helpful and gave us contact to do trecks cheaper than what tourism centres offer (for instance to go to Laguna 69 out of crowded time).

35 soles for two people.

It is open and they do receive campers. Sometimes it takes them a looong time to open the door. Bell is on the right by the small door. They charge 30 soles for the vehicle. That includes parking, bathroom, use of common areas and wifi. Showers are 15pp.

We talked them down to 90 soles for a matrimonial. We had an excellent view, great wifi, best hot shower of the trip, and an excellent view included. It was a great place for a break. You get the cheapest price for booking multiple days, if you can't talk them down from there listed 180 soles price just book for two days on or other online site. We compared to all other listed places on ioverlander and this was by far the nicest.

Tried to stay here but no one answered the bell, seemed closed.
