Gran Hostal la Portada Review
This relatively new hotel fills a much needed gap in Huancavelica, providing travelers with a clean bed, hot shower, and friendly service at a bargain price. That it does all this while being one block from the plaza makes up for the fact that the building lacks the charm of some of the pricier properties in the area. The rooms have Wi-Fi, and the owners can arrange tours of the outlying villages for intrepid travellers.Be sure to book in advance around Semana Santa (Easter) and Fiestas Patrias (July 28th).
