This hotel was part of a package trek for the night after we hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Good location far enough from all the touristy chaos of Aquas Calientas, but still only a few minute walk to everything. Rooms were basic - but clean, warm and with plenty of hot water for the shower. Breakfast was good... More

Santuario Hotel is located in a great part of Aguascalientes. I was told by other travelers staying in the main part of town, that the noise kept them up most of the night. Santuario is quiet and a short walk from most of the restaurants and hotels in Aguascalientes. Get a front facing room with a balcony if you can.... More

After spending the previous three nights under canvas on the Inca Trail (two of which in the pouring rain) and enduring the basic sanitation of the trail campsites, the Santuario Hotel seemed like the promised land. Warm shower, comfortable bed, fantastic. Looked at a little more objectively, the Santuario is fairly undistinguished but offers a decent level of comfort and... More

We stayed here for one night in May 2014. Had a room overlooking the river. It was magnificent but pretty loud, however that didn't bother us. The rooms were spacious and clean, provided shampoo and soap. The hotel is a 5 min walk from the bus that goes up to Macchu Piccchu. Breakfast is continental and starts pretty early. They... More

The rooms were ok. I would recommend a room with a balcony overlooking the river. We were there during rainy season so the river flow was amazing. Some people complained about the noise from the river but I think it helped me sleep. There is no elevator so if you have trouble on stairs book a lower room The hotel... More

I stayed here on the way to Machu Picchu as a tour group. The room looked out on the river. So pretty. The staff were wonderful. There was no lift, so I had to pay to have my bags taken upstairs. The river was noisy but it looked so beautiful. A short walk uphill to get the bus to Machu... More

Reception and the lobby are pleasant. You are then led upstairs to the room, a warren of corridors (I dread to think about fire) which smell of disinfectant. Our room was very small and the beds creaked alarmingly. Our window was very loose in the frame when closed. For blankets there was a choice of an extremely thick one you'd... More

If you get a room with a view of the river Great. You can hear the river moving, very nice. Breakfast was good, fixed eggs to order. It is a walk back up the hill to town for the bus or train. No elevator and we were on the third floor.

Hotel Santuario is well located to start your trip to Machu Picchu, the bus will stop on the way back from Machu Picchu if you ask the driver. It has a nice view on the river. The staff are friendly, good breakfast at any time you ask. Value for money.

Situated close to the railway station but out of the town noise, the hotel provides a port erring service at the station so you can drop your bags and go straight to the historic site on the bus. The hotel is modern and clean. No lift but given that most guests arrive with day packs and don't flinch at a... More
