“Great location- freezing shower!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The hotel is in a great location on your way to Machu Picchu. The rooms were clean, but cold. They only had a small heating unit that could not warm the entire room. The power went out through out the night so there was no hot water for a shower warm shower. A freezing shower that you have paid over $250 for is very irritating. Food included in price was good.

Hotel is centrally located and the service was very good. We were picked up at the train location which is only a few minutes away by foot.
The price of the room included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was average, but they did a good job with the eggs. Dinner was also ok.
The room was small and dated. There was also an entry area with a couch and table.
The biggest concern was the fact that the windows were single pane and did not block any noise coming from the common area. Luckily guests did not have a party "attitude".
Given the limited choice of hotels, this is not a bad alternative.

We stayed in this hotel the night before heading up to Machu Picchu. Didn't spend much time time there, but thought it was nice. The hotel and rooms are very clean and far enough from the train tracks so you don't hear the noise from the train like many of the other hotels in the area. The restaurant had really good food but you do need to make a reservation for dinner. We didn't have time for breakfast as we got up really early to get in line for the bus up to Machu Picchu (apparently the line gets insanely long in the morning so give yourself plenty of time if you want to make it there in time for sunrise). I would definitely stay here again.

We spent two nights at this great hotel in May, 2013, and felt that it was the best one in the town. I don't know the price of it as it was included in our "tour package", but we had two breakfast, and a wonderful dinner included. Did I mention the comp. Pisco Sour. Not only did they bring our luggage up from the train station, but seeing as we were getting a late train out of there they let us keep out luggage there during the day, and then brought in back to the train station for us. It's a modern, sleek looking hotel, with a very friendly staff !!!

I stayed here for 1 night on a visit to Machu Picchu. The room was very clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was fabulous. The free pisco sour was mostly foam and not really worth the effort of getting it from the bar. Just pay for a drink and they'll probably make it better when it's not free. The breakfast in the morning was also fabulous with a lot of different choices. The staff were very courteous and professional. My only gripe was our room faced a courtyard and there were some loud people in the other rooms, so it wasn't exactly quiet - luckily, I was tired. I can't speak much for the value because it was part of a package, but I would stay here again even if it wasn't and I had to pay directly (I'd just ask for a room not on the courtyard.)

I booked this as part of a package, so I'm not sure the actual cost of the hotel. That being said, I would stay here again for sure! I could hear the river at night, and it sounded like the ocean. I didn't find the room to be noisy, and I was on the street facing side of the hotel. The room was very modern, and really comfortable. The bathroom was excellent. They offered a free drink upon check-in. The bar was great and modern. Excellent location, friendly staff. Book it!

Room Tip: If you want to risk the noise of people out late, ask for a room facing the street, its great to hea...

Really enjoyed staying here. The place is elegant, and ecologically sensitive. The rates are expensive but then again all the nice hotels here are as well. The bar has specials on drinks which are really good.
