“We enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

We stayed two nights in the Hotel Sol. We walked in and the rate was lower than booking on the internet. The hotel was comfortable, the view was magnificent - overlooking the ruins and the service was very good. Sergio - on the front desk - was very helpful.

Hotel Sol has the best location in town. We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was great and always helpful. We had a room with a view of the river and ruins which was a nice bonus. Breakfast was good too. We would definitely stay here again.

Coming to Hotel Sol felt like coming to a home away from home. We stayed there the night after going to Machu Picchu. We had no trouble leaving our luggage there for a night and a day while we were in Aguas Calientes and Machu Picchu. Staff were friendly and helpful--they helped us call a previous hotel where we had forgotten an item and made an excellent dinner reservation at the hostel/restaurant next door. The location is perfect--a few steps from the main square, down the street from the train station, and a couple of blocks to the artisan market and ruins. We had a beautiful view of the ruins from our room (worth paying a little extra for). Breakfast was excellent and included home baked bread, eggs made to order, fresh fruit, coffee/tea/cocoa tea and I think pancakes were even an option.

Room Tip: ask for a ruins/river view

A very nice property in a central location. You are 3 blocks from plaza darmas and 3 blocks from the Ruins. I got a double room facing the river & the ruins. Gorgeous to wake up to. clean, nice common area. Wifi service good. Breakfast is okay. Nothing fancy. Some hard/crunchy bread with eggs or butter. and your morning coffee tea or juice.

Room Tip: Facing the river and ruins

We stayed 2 nights here in room 203.
The hotel is located in a wonderful spot. Less then a 5 minute walk to restaurants, town square and ruins.
We had a great balcony with chairs on it overlooking the ruins, great views to wake up to.
The room was simple but comfortable, the shower was great with plenty of hot water. The rooms include breakfast in a fanatastic eating area. Breakfast was wonderful, have the pancake as it is as big as a dinner plate.
The hotel arranged for a driver to take us back to Cuzco with stops in Moray and Salineras on the way. The driver did not speak english however with my limited spanish we managed well.
We did have 1 issue with the hotel that Lluc the owner handled very well.
When we arrived back in Cuzco around 5 pm we realised that the hotel had overcharged us. I contacted Lluc and he without hesitation acknowlegded that he made a mistake. He was unable to credit the money back to my credit card. I had a early morning flight back to Lima so Lluc sent the money to me by taxi and I recieved every penny back with a note apologizing around 9:30 that night.
A great place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 203 has the largest balcony you can actually sit on it. Go to the ruins early in the morning b...

We stayed three nights in the hotel. The room was large, clean, and in a wonderful environment. The room we had was next to the river and we had a great view and the sweet sounds of water flowing down the river.

The staff was very helpful and kind. They sincerely seemed interested in our comfort and safety.

The breakfast was very good. There was a choice of eggs and toast or pancakes along with the usual drink selection. Juice was served and there were various fruit selections.

There were three issues which stop me from giving this my top rating:
1) The bed was very hard. My wife ended up doubling up a thick blanket to make it acceptably soft (although still very hard). Your taste may vary but it felt extremely hard to me too.
2) Having hot water was a problem. They did try to rectify this and we did have one night of hot water and one night of coolish water.
3) The Wi-Fi did not work in our room, but it did work well in the second floor common area.

Overall, the size of the room, the great staff, and the beautiful view would cause me to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the river and away from the street.

Room 204, our own personal sanctuary for 3 nights. The room was very spacious, great shower and bathroom. The balcony was wonderful and the view was amazing. We could hear the river as we slept. Plenty of privacy. We enjoyed the web access and the outdoor atrium. Staff was very nice and helpful. Centrally located, we walked to the train station for our day at Machu Picchu, to the ruins, plenty of shopping. Walking around the town was very convenient and charming. I would defiantly go back.
