Puno has a few interesting cultural attractions — wander to the historic Plaza de Armas to see the Catedral Basilica San Carlos Borromeo and its 17th century facade. There are also some restaurants and bars to check out along Lima, the town’s main thoroughfare. Of course, the main attraction here are the boating tours to the various islands. Uros Islands and Taquile Island are known for Quechua residents and their colorful handmade textiles.
You’ll stay comfortable with the room’s climate control. There’s also oxygen available to help you adjust to the high altitude. Double glazed windows help make the room extra quiet. It’s easy to keep up with the latest with the hotel’s Internet access and direct telephones. All of the rooms come with private bathrooms, which are equipped with hair dryers.
While you’re enjoying your room, you can order room service. Have the staff take care of your laundry, and store your valuables in the safety deposit box. Fix yourself a drink at the minibar, and unwind in front of the cable TV.
The dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows, which offer a lovely view of the lake. The same is true of the bar, where you and your fellow travelers can grab a table and chat about your plans for the next day. Business travelers can make use of the hotel’s conference rooms, meeting rooms, and the business center.
