Clean hotel with hot showers. Very comfy bed and pillows. We paid 90soles for a triple room so pretty cheap. Excellent location, very central with all agencies near by and lots of good restaurants. BUT VERY SQUEAKY beds!!! Breakfast is an extra 8 soles so we went out for breakfast.

Great staff, good location with small plaza outside to relax, good security, hot showers, owner took the time to explain all about trekking. Rooms are clean with nice hard beds. If you're a very light sleeper, like me, use earplugs and you'll be good.

Centrally located, right next to Plaza De Armas where you can easily exchange currencies and/or use ATMs. Very nice and helpful staff. Breakfast can be had for an extra. The owner suggested we have lunch at "Tres Estilos" and try their "cevichocho" for only 8 soles and boy were we glad he did, so good ! Tip : It may... More

Even though in the middle of noisy Huaraz, the Ginebra park has a very quiet atmosphere. Several good restaurants very nearby. A real recommendation if you look for a reasonable priced location. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, clean bathroom. There is a discotheque just around the corner, which did have some noise, but didn't really bother. You could even ask for... More

There is a new disco in Huaraz, annoying everyone in the center, especially people trying to sleep at Alpa-K as the disco is just behind. I could not sleep even with earplugs and decided to change for a smaller hostel, a bit above plaza de Armas, only half the price of alpa K and much quieter. It is relatively expensive... More

The rooms are simple but clean. The location is perfectly centered at the Parque Ginebra, which also means that it can be a little noisy during the weekends. The staff is really nice and really helpful concerning planning trips. There might be cheaper options in Huaraz but its worth the money! The rooftop terace is nice. Ask for fresh bread... More

My family (two adults and two kids) spent three nights at Alpa-K. The hotel has a convenient location and the rooms are nice and very reasonably priced. We were pleased with the breakfast. The hotel owner/manager, Bertrand, was very friendly, helpful, and accomodating. Highly recommended.
