I booked this room two months in advance on booking.com. We were greeted very kindly by two young women and promptly shown to our room #21 one flight up from the lobby and with large windows facing a small town square and the river. The pleasant room was very clean with 1 queen bed, 1 sng bed and a small... More

The hotel manager Martha was one of the nicest hotel employees that I have ever interacted with, back home or abroad. She was helpful with advice, flexible for each and every request- keeping our bags an extra day, serving breakfast late, hanging our clothes to dry after the rain, etc. she was great to talk to and was very honest...

This hotel is right next to the school , which was OK for us as we are early risers (to get into the market!) however the music as the school bell goes for a while. the hotel is very basic, wifi is free but not too strong, but do-able. Plumbing wasn't the best toilets would stop running and two of... More

You only go to this area to visit the ruins at Machu Picchu and it is such a historical area they have restrictions on development, so keep in mind there aren't that many hotels to choose from. It isn't one of the hotels I would have chosen on my own, but I was travelling with my Daughters' school group and... More

Great value compared to other hostels in the area. The breakfast was good and they fed us before our hike to Machu Picchu at 5am. The staff were friendly and we felt safe leaving our belongings there. They even watched our bags when we were not staying another night. The shower was hot at times and cold at other times.

Just look for your name on a sign. You will be picked up at the train station. very clean rooms ,breakfast, good hot showers . All that one needs to get a great start on your Waynapicchu climb the next morning. They even give you a banana a must for the day. You can leave your stuff in the hotel... More

A friend and I just stayed here for 1 night. Here are some highlights: PROS - great location: close to the train station, on a main street, easy to find - we tried to leave at 3:30am to wait in line for the bus up to machu picchu. we found ourselves trapped in the lobby (front door was locked), but...
