We booked this hotel through bookings.com, or one of those sites, mainly because it was one of the cheaper options. We just needed a place to stay before going to MP. It worked out just fine for us. Location - it wasn't right next to the buses but pretty close - any closer and it would have been too loud.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night after doing Machu Picchu. It's a really lovely little hostel, clean rooms (towels smell amazing), hot, hot, hot water and a really decent breakfast in the morning. The only reason isn't a '5' is because it's a bit loud at night, which if you are getting up at 4am to do... More

... at least this is what I remember about this hostel. I had a dark room without window to the outside. Because the room didn't have a window there was no ventilation and the room, due to the climate, was dump. The bathroom was really small, and clean is something else. A construction site nearby, the family quarrels of the... More

This hostal is clean and comfortable for one night stay. They had good beds and later when we finally had hot water it was really hot. WiFi was good when it worked... We were promised to get breakfast 4:30 a.m. but they were little late with that. Very good anyways to be able to get anything at that time and... More

We booked the Hotel Sol de Oro while visiting Machu Picchu. We had been a bit leary of staying in Aquas Caliente based on reviews in travel books and online, but we found it to be a very lively and affordable place. The Hotel Sol de Oro was quite comfortable. We had two rooms and both had very comfortable beds... More

This is a classic case of "you get what you pay for". Don't stay here if you expect to get a good night sleep. We specifically asked for a quite room and where given a noisy one near the street. We convinced the hotel staff to let us change rooms, but the second one was just as bad. Every sound... More

The rooms and beds were nice and clean and comfortable. Hot water which is a plus in Peru I've found. However which is pretty huge the hotel is by a club. It was super loud music until late at night, 0130 per the owners. Which was disturbing , and it was loud all over the hotel so changing rooms wouldn't... More

This is a good place for visiting Machu Picchu. It is close to the train station, you can leave your luggage there while going up to MP and pick it up on the way to the train at the end of the day and they serve breakfast very early, so you can get up to MP before sunrise. Nothing fancy,... More

Clean and quiet with lovely women running the place. Perfect for a night en route to Manchu Pichu. Good wi-fi. There did not seem to be any hot water which could obviously be a huge problem, but i did not need to shower so I did not care, nor did I ask about that. Might have been an easy fix... More

We stayed there for one night, arriving late and leaving early, having breakfast at 4:30. The staff was friendly, we were happy with the rooms and slept well even though the windows were to the inside courtyard and we expected noisy tourists disturbing our sleep. For the price of USD40 it is one of the cheaper, but reliable accomodations in... More
