Stayed here for 1 night (Sunday night in preparation to go to Machu Picchu). Like others pointed, this hotel is about a 10-15 minute uphill walk from the train station. We didn't have a problem walking after sitting in the train for 1.5 hrs, so it was actually nice to walk through the town to get the circulation going. Checking-in... More

We stayed here as part of a G Adventures tour. It is a 15 minute walk up the hill as this hotel is located away from the train station. The town is small so location is not an issue. Our room was on the top floor overlooking the square with a nice view. (I don't recall there being elevators) It's... More

The rooms were very clean, modern, and with great views of the beautiful town of Aguas Calientes below and the surrounding mountains of the Sacred Valley above. The staff was very helpful and friendly, had an awesome experience!!

A very average hotel, which is a bit disappointing considering the average reviews here. The place was clean, but we had issues with flooding showers, and not so great service. Aside from it taking quite a long time to be sure they fixed the shower, when we asked for a short delay in the check-out time they would not budge.... More

Stayed one night after Macchu Picchu visit. Clean, large, comfortable. Some noise as this town is densely populated...bring ear plugs. Great service. good breakfast. Close to many restaurants and hot springs. DO NOT take hotels towels to hot springs, they will charge you. Rent them on the way to the springs.

This hotel is within an easy walking distance of the bus to Machu Picchu and the train station. Our only complaint was that the WiFi did not work in the rooms, but we had lovely weather and it worked great from the benches right outside the hotel (and in a few restaurants right off the front door.

Was really disappointed after reading all the reviews. The hotel has an extremely run down and odd feel to it. The layouts of most things are weird. You access the lift walking past the breakfast buffet and behind a little wall. Everything feels run down and dated. The view is ok but our room also overlooked a noisy square which... More

Large room. We had a triple room with 3 single beds.. Hotel a bit dated and need a refurbishment. Staff ok. Breakfast ok but not great. 5 minute walk to Machu Picchu bus and train station. Close to shops and restaurants. If i stay in this town again i will look for another hotel.
