From the outside, this hotel is fairly plain--but it is quite pretty on the inside. Service was very good. Again, everyone was very friendly.
We were here with a group and every one liked the hotel and their rooms--even those with a hike to the last room in the complex (we were in building 5, first floor; but some were on the third).
Best breakfast of all the hotels we stayed at in Peru. Great selection of items, including made to order omelets. Good selection of fruits, juices, and breads.
Dinner is included in the room rate but is only served at 6, 730, or 9 PM. It takes about an hour and a half for your order to be taken and served. Choice of 3 appetizers, 5? entrees, and 3 desserts. The soup was great. We both loved the pork. Dessert wasn't too memorable as neither of us can remember what we had both nights we were there.
Aquas Calientes is small--quick walk to the bus over to Machu Picchu. Quick walk to anything else.
While I was in the room relaxing, I could hear a fire consultant discussing improvements that could be made to the property. His only recommendation was self-close doors--the management official with him stated that the hotel had already planned to do that was there were lots of complaints about noise from the doors slamming.
The hotel is a little noisy due to all of the hard surfaces--tile floors, hardwood doors, etc.
WiFi worked in our room which faced the street but those that were in rooms that faced the back of the property had no service.
