For those willing to ignore a few negatives—it's a bit overpriced, it's quite a few blocks uphill, the Wi-Fi is spotty and doesn't reach to every room, and there isn't an elevator—this may be your best bet when most everything else is filled. While not nearly as interesting as its sister hotel outside of Puno, this small Taypikala is quite pleasant, with wood flooring, bamboo furniture, and Andean ceramics and textiles layered throughout the hotel. Rooms have nearly floor-to-ceiling windows that face out at the green mountains. Those on the fourth floor have particularly nice views.
