I booked this hotel through our travel agency. It was a cheap rate, good location and the pictures looked really nice. After booking, I checked the reviews and saw that it had mostly 1 or 2 stars. I tried to cancel the booking, but unfortunately it was not refundable. I wish I had've taken the loss and booked somewhere else.... More

Let me begin by saying if I had done my research and read some previous Trip Advisor reviews, I would not be writing this unfortunate review about this motel. If I could give this a zero rating, I would. Our arrangements were made by at third-party and I made the mistake of not reading any reviews own my own and... More

Alright, I had two weeks to kill before meeting up with my tour group. Using www.hotelscombined.com, I scored 11 nights @ $50Aud a night. The intent was to relax, maybe work out a little and practice Spanish before moving into a few nights of luxury and meeting up with the tour. Inca Real is in a decent location, 10min walk... More

Inexplicably our excellent travel company booked us into this dreadful place for two nights. From the outside this hotel looks attractive. Walk into the pleasant small atrium with room doors off the ground floor and two upper galleries, furnished with easy chairs and sofas, and you're full of hope. Go to your room, though, and hope begins to crumble. No... More

Only stay here if it's cheap and 1 or 2 nights at most. Musty rooms as there's no ventilation direct to the outside air. Rooms vent into an atrium that's open at the top a bit, enough so you hear the music from across the road and have light waking you. Breakfast is a greasy egg and 2 small slices... More

Dark, mold smelling room, with used dirty sheets (and no one who would change them). Breakfast= cold coffee, 2 toast and one scrambled egg with ham (and no possibility to get eggs without ham for vegetarians). One of the more expensive places we stayed at during our three week trip (stayed mostly in hostels) and definitely the worst!

I have not stayed there but would not even if I am paid to do it. I made a mistake by reserving there but cancelled straight away. They confirmed my cancellation but not a single word to say that they would charge me. One month later they took money from my bank account and they still do not reply to... More

The only good thing to say about this hovel, is that some of reception staff are really nice and accomodating. I travelled in March 2014. When i turned left i ended up at a bar with what could only be described as working girl minors, looking for their pay day. Very unnerving. If i turned right out of the hotel... More
