Hotel Balsa Inn, Puno
Average, not great
Good value for the price, but the hotel needs some updating and cleaning. Front desk staff quoted us one price on a taxi to tour the area, and then when the taxi arrived we were told a price that was 50% more than the initial one. I had to spend 30 minutes negotiating it back down to the initial price.

A Old hotel but clean. The location is OK, near the plaza, only 3 minutes walk. A Quite area, and not suitable for walking alone near the hotel. Bad Service because I have left some clothes in the bathroom and then check out to the Lake Titikaka. I have returned to the hotel to take the luggage in the afternoon, the staff have not remind me that there is some clothes I have left in the bath room.
