Budget choice
Considering Paracas is mostly made up of hostels or the higher end hotels, there isn’t much choice in the budget hotel range. This hotel is useful for those coming in on a Cruz del Sur service as the check in is right inside the bus station you arrive at. Lovely surroundings and room was fine. Basic but did the job.

Bus stop motel.
Between highway traffic/taxis and a bust backing in every 30 minutes there was little sleep. Warm water the second day. Hard bed and pillows. Hot inside room. Flies. Much nicer options closer to the action for the price. Best part was no taxi/walk to the bus..

Dead Fish Hotel
The area was great but the place was terrible. It smelled of dead fish. I regretted booking this place as soon as I walked out of my car. If you like the smell of dead fish this place is fine. Also there is no cc machine so you will need to have sols just in case. The people were generally helpful and nice but the people that own the company just don't care about the people that come to visit. The hotel also states wifi but that does not exist in the room. Only when you step out of the room so that is even more inconvenient. Currency exchange is kind of unfair. It is 3.25 sols to the dollar if you have sols but if you exchange your dollars it is 3 sols. I know people need to make money but this is a budget hotel for the travelers as well. I just thought it was a little shady operation run by the ownership. The people are kind and helpful. I asked the guy about a good restaurant to go to and he suggested some good ones. Overall it was okay but I wouldn't stay here again unless they did something about the smell. I only noticed the smell at the hotel. When I went to the city I didn't smell anything.

the location is perfact, the bus station just on the side, and 5 minutes walkiing from the port. although the room area is noisy and if you want to have freakfast there, you need to make the reservation the day before. howerver, there are a lot of restaurant in the centre where is 5 minutes by walk.

Comfortable, economical stay in Paracas
This hotel is a great place to stay while exploring Paracas and the surrounding areas, especially if you are looking for a high quality economical option. It is near El Chaco, the bus company Cruz del Sur stops right inside the hotel, it I secure, and also has a well-known tour operation in addition to the hotel service. The rooms have decent amenities - small TV, hot shower, comfortable beds, and an outdoor patio space. The staff are kind and fairly helpful and can arrange local taxis, if needed. Facilities are well maintained, secure and clean. The only downside to this hotel was the early checkout requirement at by 10:30 AM.
