“Best Overall Hotel in Peru”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

My family and stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and it was by far the best hotel we had stayed in Peru. I was fortunate to have a balcony view of the Ollantay. fortress ruins. I usually have difficulty sleeping unless I have a sound machine, but who needs a sound machine when you have the sound of the river!! The river flows by the hotel and I also had the view of it. This is probably the best view/location I have ever had in any hotel yet and I have travelled a lot.

The price is very good. The rooms are not top luxury, so people who are used to staying in corporate looking accommodations may be slightly disappointed. That is not to say anything bad about the rooms one bit. This hotel has more character and personality than any 5 star luxurious hotel.. I think the way the rooms look and the way the hotel is set up is very appropriate for the location. . The rooms are very clean.

The icing on the cake was the customer service. Seriously one of the best. The front desk was very helpful and flexible. At one point we had one person in our family back out last minute and they were willing to cancel a room in exchange for putting that person in a 3 bed room which saved us money. Most importantly, they helped us get a discount on our admission tickets to the fortress and gave us a tour guide. The tour guide's name was Walter and he was truly the best guide we have had on this trip. I recommend requesting him. I learned more from him that the guide we had at Machu Picchu. He was also very patient. I found that some guides like to rush things, but Walter was not one of them. He was excellent

So.. overall I highly recommend this place..

We moved over from KB Tambo Hotel next door because they could only accommodate us two nights, and this is a sister-hotel. The rooms here were large and nice, slept the four of us, and we were on the upper floor, on the side overlooking the creek and had a darling little balcony. The breakfast room was the best breakfast room of our entire trip - windows on three sides, overlooking the creek, views of all. Our only complaint was a very nasty smell in the bathroom like maybe the sink wasn't venting properly. We did let the staff know so maybe it's fixed!

We had an incredible room next to the river. It was very relaxing and spotless. The staff were so welcoming. They really stood out for their service and friendliness. The hotel next door had lost our reservation made months before, and we walked into paradise. Our friends still had their reservation next door, and moved over to Hotel Sol because it was so much nicer for the same price! Great atmosphere. They are doing so many things right!

Good and beautiful location directly on a river with view to the ruins. The room and bathroom (normally with plenty of hot water and good pressure - one morning we didn't have hot water) are nice, spacious and very clean with a small balcony. There are heaters available and free WiFi (good connection). The breakfast was very unequal - the first and second day it was very basic and on the third day above average. The staff was friendly. All in all compare to other hotels in Peru it was too expensive.
