It is perfect, cozy and great service, the only reason is why I would not give 5 stars is that on the second floor, facing the river, with the best view…. They don’t have soundproof windows, so at 5am you feel the Bus is taking you up the mountain…

Words can not properly express how happy and completely 110% satisfied we are with the entire staff at the SUMAQ HOTEL, in Machu Picchu, Peru and a special shout out to our personal Machu Picchu Guide arranged by the SUMAQ Hotel.  If you want the very best, most professional and extremely knowledgeable guide in all of Machu Picchu, then ask for Mr. Joel Miler Castillo Villavicencio.  I am a Travel Agent and an International Travel Director taking small groups all over the world staying at high-end luxury resorts, and I have to tell you the entire staff and our guide at the Sumaq Hotel absolutely exceeded our expectations. Each and every staff person was kind, considerate, passionate, well informed and, most of all, an excellent Hospitality Ambassador.  The Sumaq Hotel management team should be very proud of the training they have put in place and how well their employees have performed.

We had a wonderful experience in the Sumaq Hotel. Not only was the hotel beautiful, comfortable and clean, but the staff was over the top with the service they gave us. We were first picked up at the train station by Jose, who took our luggage to the hotel and also helped us buying our bus tickets to Machu Picchu. Once we arrived to the hotel, we were greeted by the staff with a delicious hours d’ouvre sent by the chef of the restaurant. Noemi and Natalie at the front desk were very helpful and friendly and Moises and Justino gave us great service at the restaurant. We were spoiled by the chef with delicious food all the time! The hotel also recommended us a great guide for Machu Picchu, we really enjoyed our tour with him. His name is Rodrigo J. Becerra. He was not only very knowledgeable, but a great photographer and a very patient guide who took the time to give us a noteworthy tour during all the restrictions that are undergoing right now at Machu Picchu. He really made our experience in Machu Picchu a great one! We totally recommend this hotel to anyone who is staying in Aguas Calientes. Thanks to all the staff of The Sumaq Hotel for making our stay a memorable one, we’ll be back!

While the hotel wasn't as luxurious as the photos led me to believe, we had a nice one night stay here (ended up leaving one night early). The hotel arranged a Machu Picchu citadel tour for us which was lovely. The rooms were clean enough, but they could use some revamping, as could the menu. I would like to give a special thank you to Jose who helped us rearrange our stay when COVID hit.
