We arrived in the Sacred Valley on the third day of our 2 week trip. Our room included a queen bed and a single bed and amazing picture window with unreal views of the mountains and nearby ruins. The beds were comfy and the shower offered plenty of hot water. Breakfast included coca tea, eggs, meat, bread and jam and... More

POSITIVES: nice rustic decor. availability of kitchen with gas stove as well as microwave they held our bags when we visited MP. NEGATIVES: Our stay was in 2 parts--we checked in on Nov 228th and got a small room--no 5. We had booked twin bed room , they wrote back saying only double bedroom was available though our booking had... More

Loved our stay. Jose was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and providing us with our breakfast box for our early trip out to Machu Picchu. We stayed in room 6 and it has a stunning view! Definitely rustic, and we did have some ants, as mentioned below, but it wasn't a huge issue.

This place is pretty basic (no TV or fancy fittings, if that's what you're after), but it was clean, comfortable and there were lovely fresh flowers in our room. The bathroom was clean and the shower OK. We had a verandah with a table and chairs outside where we could sit in the evening and watch the stars, and magnificent... More

Stayed here 2 nights. I would not stay here again. I travel a lot and I write reviews about 1/3 of the time. We thought it would be rustic in a good way. It was rustic in a bad way. One step up from a bad hostel -- I've stayed in nicer hostels actually. Rustic I can excuse, but it... More

We stayed there three nights, one before Machu Picchu and two after. They held our luggage for us and even had some laundry done. The view from room 6 was magnificent. It was a little chilly the last day but the bed was comfortable and plenty of warm blankets. The bathroom and shower were modern and clean. The breakfast were... More

Quiet and right in the heart of the historic area, it's a very picturesque, beautifully landscaped unique hotel - unique in a very good way! Sabrina and all the staff were all very friendly and worked diligently to address any request we had... Be sure to explore the ruins on both sides of the valley...

Rooms are average size if not bigger than most in Peru. If you feel cold they have space heaters. The breakfast is great, lots of options. We had arranged a tour, and they never showed up. The hotel owner was great, he called a taxi driver he knew, and he drove us around for much cheaper than the arranged tour... More

I stayed there for a romantic occasion in early winter last year (sorry for delay in writing this). Nov and Dec are a great time to go to the Sacred Valley, weatherwise and not too many tourists. The staff were quick in responding to emails. Make sure you book quickly on booking.com, all necessary info is there, so don't surf... More

We only stayed here one night, and despite our taxi driver taking 30 minutes wandering the town to find it, really delighted at our room. The bathroom was beautiful (with hot water!) and the bed was comfortable. But it was so cold, and one of the windows wouldn't close so we stuffed a pillow in it. The wifi didn't work... More
