Our group stayed here. I believe we were in an upgraded room, so others must have really been small. We had a window & terrace overlooking the river which made it very pleasant. Luckily we had closed the screenless windows before we went to bed because the next morning I found some huge flying bugs outside the door on the... More

We stayed here one night before heading up to Machu Picchu. The place is adequate but by no means luxurious. The river is right next to the hotel, so you have to be extra careful about using only bottled water. Location is fine but may not be your best option unless you are on a budget. If that is the...

I stayed here based on the reviews and the reasonable rates. At first, I loved my room with a terrace overlooking the river - so beautiful and the sound was so relaxing. At first, it was just the safe that didn't work but I wasn't bothered. But then, it was the hair dryer...and no hot water...and that wonderful river view?... More

Aguas Calientes is not known for good hotels. Therefore, We were not expecting much when we checked in. The room was not large, but it was adequate. The bathroom was fine and we never ran out of hot water. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was pretty good. The view of the river from our room was very nice.

Our group of 14 stayed here overnight for our visit to Machu Picchu. The hotel is situated with a beautiful, breathtaking view of the river. That said, the rooms were very small. You walked into a bed when you opened the door to your room. Bathrooms were on a platform...kind of odd. Their wifi was not working properly on the... More

It was very basic accommodations, 2 twin beds. large room with a balcony over looking the stream. Bathroom could have been larger, it was tight but okay. An elevator is sorely needed especially after my legs were hurting from hiking all day at Machu Picchu. The staff was great & helpful with my questions & requests. The breakfast could have... More

Stayed one night before going up to Machu Picchu, though it was in a package deal we had purchased thru Mystery Peru, hotel was very clean, comfortable and very friendly to any needs. Good location, restaurants nearby.

We had a limited choice of hotel from list from Inca Trail company, and had no expectation after reading all these reviews. But our rooms are clean and comfortable (2nd floor, facing the river), no issue with noises from buses or anybody else. Breakfast is great. Way more than acceptable for its price and rating. Hot water was an issue... More

To start with, I wouldn't book this hotel again. Rooms: Had to change rooms due to a broken window in the shower, which allowed bugs to enter freely, which they did. Rooms were clean and simple, but the back side of the hotel seems to be under construction, which isn't very pretty (as of Sept 2015). Also, there are a... More
