We stayed here for one night after visiting Machu Pichu. It was still under construction and workmen were going back and forth all day. Everything seems to have been thrown up pretty quickly in Aguas Calientes judging by the cement bags sticking out of concrete walls! Hotel was comfortable enough, had an excellent meal at the restaurant. Buffet breakfast was... More

Maybe it was because we'd been roughing it for four days in the Andes but our bed here was the hugest and most comfiest ever! Easy to get to from the train station and the staff were lovely. Wifi in our room was a bit slow but there were computers in the lobby available for use. Great brekkie buffet before... More

This is probably the only hotel in Aguas Calientes that offers normal 3-star hotel standards for the price you pay and a happy medium between the least expensive options and the most expensive hotels. Location is very good, 5 blocks from Aguas Calientes train station. You can feel the traditional atmosphere of the area walking around the little town. The... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night, dinner is included and we were glad to see that most of the dishes in the menu are marked as "gluten free", which is not common in Peru. Unfortunately, this is not true: once we explained we actually needed gluten free food, the waitress came back and said that nothing in the... More

This is a very nice hotel located in central Aguas Calientes Peru. The town isn't very big so you're pretty close to everything no matter where you stay. The breakfasts were good, cold cuts, eggs cooked to order, nice juice selection, good fruit selection, except the coffee wasn't very good. The bar was fun, though expensive. Our favorite place to...

Spent 2 nights here in mid August. From the moment you checked in ,the service by ALL of the staff was excellent. Carrying your bags to railway station was a pleasant surprise. No lift and a few stairs to negotiate because the place is built on the inclining street that is Agua Caliente. Breakfast and evening meals ( including in... More

Spending at least one night in Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu town is almost unavoidable. That is probably why it felt so crowded and dirty. The tourism industry there seems to be growing faster than the town can keep up, so there were problems with drainage/sewage, clogged streets, crowded sidewalks, etc. This hotel was, externally, one of the nicest. But you can... More

We stayed in Room 431 on 8/6/14 after hiking Macchu Picchu all day and were unable to sleep until after 2 AM because of the bar across the street blasting their music at full volume, then the hotel construction resumed at 7 AM. Very unhappy with this hotel-would not recopmmend it under any circumstances

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in June as we were visiting Macchu Pichu over 2days and needed accommodation. After our first day at Macchu Pichu we were tired from the altitude and wanted to rest for the afternoon. On checking in, we were given a room which was more than 80 steps up from the lobby which...

This hotel has a major problem bestowed by the designers - hard surfaces everywhere. That is not to say it is not new and beautiful, because it is. But when you come to the hotel from two days of exploring Inca sites, you want to sleep. The nightclub down the road blaring out its music til 2 am did not... More
