Before booking my reservation at this hotel, I had read many comments about this hotel, some positive and other negative. Management of the hotel tackled the issues pointed by other visitors. Overall, I liked the hotel. It is close to the bus and train stations (5-10 minutes walk), my room was clean, there were extra douvets in case I would... More

Great spot away from the main part of town and right on the river. Sleeping to the sound of the river is very pleasant and the views are fantastic. All the staff are super friendly. And the beds really comfy. The little old lady selling gifts etc 2 doors up is such a nice lady. But then again with my... More

The hotel (it is a hotel though it titles itself a 'hostal') is at the lower end of the town of Aguas Calientes, some ten minutes of walk from the train station. It has a spacious lobby and nice rooms. The staff was incredibly helpful. When we arrived, we discovered that we had been swindled by a tour operator, and... More

We got here late and were up early so didn't really have much time to spend in the hotel. The staff was helpful in keeping our luggage while we visited Machu Picchu the following day. The room was clean and the shower was warm. We loved hearing the sound of the river during the night and had no problem with... More

A nice cozy and warm room in a good location; just a block from the bus and train station and on the river. The room and the bed were both small, but this was totally satisfactory for one night. Breakfast was OK (just), and the wi fi was excellent. Note, the hotel has no elevator and the stairs to the... More

The room was clean but small and plain. However, the view of the river was exceptional. We left the window open to the sound of rushing water all night and it was the best night's rest I had during my stay in Peru. The continental breakfast was good also.

We stayed in the quad room (2 separate rooms a twin and a matrimonial). It was nice and had a great view of the Urubamba river! It was a little loud. Also, DO NOT leave your windows or doors to the balcony open. Bugs will come in. Also it was a little far from the main areas of town. Aguas... More

We got into Aguas Calientes pretty late at night, and when we walked into our room and turned on the light a HUGE bug came flying out at us. After about 10 minutes of trying to coerce it out of our room, we finally were able to get into the room and relax. Because we got in so late and... More

The hotel itself is very basic. If you are looking for a "nice place" to stay, this probably isn't it. Not because it isn't nice, but because it is very basic. I might have opted for a slightly better class of hotel up the street more in the heart of AC. However, I will say that the staff is very... More

The carpet was all ripped, the bed was very small for my husband and I...a junior double, It was hard and creeked every time you moved. It was a dark, dank room. The shower was filled with mosquito's they leave the window open. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff was not very friendly...we stayed in some... More
