“Find a Different Hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2008

Our room had plumbing problems, and by the morning of our overnight stay we had no shower and no working toilet. We stayed here as part of our 2-day Inca Trail Hike/Machu Picchu tour booked through Llama Path. If you're doing that trip, request the upgrade to a better hotel -- you'll be glad you did. (Other than booking our stay at this hotel, though, Llama Path was a great tour company, and we had an excellent guide.) There is nothing pleasant about this place except the name of the shampoo ("Sexy Shampoo") and I guess the fact that they provide it. Of course, if you can't take a shower, the shampoo is of no use. Just find a different place to stay.

This is a very gloomy and smelly hostel. Not worth $50 american dollars. Our room smelled like a port-o-pottie. We had to change rooms and go out to buy incents to make it through the night.

One night at the Jardin Real - which is really a hostal and not a hotel - was part of the 2-day tour to Machu Picchu which we had booked via a Cuzco agency.

The hotel's website stated that the price for a double is 50$, which I think is definitly overpaid for what you get.

The staff at the hotel is friendly and helpful, but the room was small and the furniture quite old. The room had not TV, but a private bathroom with shower. To get hot water, you had to let the water running for several minutes before it warmed up. But the really bad thing about the rooms was the smell (like there was a dead animal somewhere, but we couldn't find one) - first we thought it came from the bathroom, but that didn't seem to be the case, and during the night (which was cold, and there is no heater) we even had to sleep with an open window because it smelled so terrible.

The breakfast was nothing special, but ok. The location in this tiny town is also ok, and the room was quiet.

  • Liked — staff friendlyness
  • Disliked — The room smelled really really bad!
  • Tips/Secrets — If you order a wake-up call, don't be surprised if someone knocks at your door at that time - there is no phone in the room ;-)
