We had a superior room which only meant that it was bigger than some of the others and could not detect any greater luxuries than the other rooms. The bathroom was tiny but adequate although the towels had seen better days. The bed was quite comfortable although it was only a standard kingsize and, given the size of the room,... More

I stayed here for a few nights after my Choquequirao trek and on my birthday, they left a lovely bowl of fruit for me in my room. The hotel is in an excellent location, just a few minutes' safe walk from the centre. It is very old, with evidence of Incas and because of this, they are restricted from making... More

We paid extra for the large room 204 with balcony. The room itself was fine, large and bright with a comfortable bed. Unfortunately the tiny bathroom absolutely reeked of faeces when we walked in, and the terrible smell remained for our stay. Street noise in this room is also an issue. There were wooden shutters, but perhaps hanging thick curtains... More

We stayed here before and after walking the Inca trail. Perfect position. Rooms of good size in a part of a lovely inca building, pleasant courtyard. Hot water a bit variable , and no supplied bottled water..minor irritants. The front of house staff were fabulous..courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable. Recommended, especially in its price range.

We stayed here at the end of the rainy season mid April which may account for our room smelling distinctly of mold. It was at the end of a passageway that opened into a courtyard and backed onto another building which didn't look to be in the best repair. It was also freezing when we arrived (the doors wide open,... More

This is a great hotel to stay; just 5-10 minutes away from the main square and very quiet at night. The staff were excellent and very helpful. Our main luggage was left at the hotel during our trip to Macchu Picchu and didn't leave our room. Coca and other teas always available and a good breakfast each day. The lovely... More

The hotel is in one of the corners of an old Incan building. I believe one of the emperors born/lived there. There is a very quaint courtyard surrounded by rooms. Our room was very cozy with a small sitting area. The service at the hotel was excellent. They were always willing to give suggestions or help in any way. Breakfast... More

We stayed at this hotel during our Machu Picchu trip. Excellent location, wonderful staff who are very cordial and helpful. Our room was #101, family suite .. loved the room and the suite (bathroom was small though :) ). Just a 5 min walk away from the central plaza, at a very safe neighborhood. The front door is always locked... More

Had two nights here. Left our luggage for 3 nights then 2 more. Sylvia was really helpful and friendly. Lovely courtyard. We sat and played cards one afternoon. A few beers and water were available in the breakfast area if you wanted to help yourself and pay later. Use of a laptop in the lobby. This is a tiny hotel... More

Unaytambo is brilliantly located next to the Temple of the Sun. The hotel is down a small alley, perfectly safe, and they keep the front doors locked. The hotel is small and the rooms are ok in size. They are cold but they offer lots of blankets. The bathroom is very small and I found it difficult to get dried... More
