One can guess that Aguas Calientes is too expensive because of its proximity with Machu Picchu. But it is twice more expensive than it should be regarding the service and the infrastructure. The employees at the reception are very kind but not so efficient and very bad at english. Although we where staying right in front of them at the time of Check out, they had forgotten that we were waiting for our room key...
There is a wall made of plants in the restaurant. At its bottom, there are a few decaying plants (to be compared to the photo on the website ... you will understand that the place could be better managed...)
There are better values like the Sumaq or the Mapi hotels.
The only surprisingly good experience was the fine dinner.
