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..
