Daniel! Thank you for your comment! We loved to host you at the House! We are very happy to know you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you next time you come to Rio. Best Regards from all the staff at El Misti.


Old, damp, dingy, and not really clean. I stayed there for 5 nights and only 2 bathrooms had hand soap in them. They never refilled the dispensers. Old beds, Old linens, etc. The air circulation and quality in my room was terrible. On a positive note, the staff are friendly and helpful and the location is great. The dinners they provide for a fee are very good.
