After reading all of the reviews of Torre Dorada and looking at the price, I thought it had to be too good to be true. It was not.
The staff were wonderful. I felt as though I was staying with family(except I didn't have to do dishes). They were waiting for us at the airport as promised. They provided help and advice whenever we needed it and really made our trip much easier and more enjoyable. We went to them for advice on restaurants, tours, massages, and dealing with the altitude and they did not disappoint once. Their drivers were available to give us rides to and from town from 0500 until 2300 and they were always prompt and courteous. They were also much better drivers than the Peruvian taxi drivers.
They booked our trip to Machu Picchu for us. On Tuesday morning (early) they prepared a special breakfast for us and packed a lunch. They handed us a packet that contained our train tickets round trip to Aquas Calientes, bus tickets up to and down from Machu Picchu and our entrance tickets to Machu Picchu itself. Many other people in Aguas Calientes were waiting in long lines to get these tickets but we were able to skip the lines and focus on having a good time. They also made reservations for us at a hotel in Aguas Calientes.
The breakfasts at the Torre Dorada were very good and the dining room has beautiful views in the mornings. They provide free teas all day long and provide 2 bottles of water each day for free. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the shower had plenty of hot water and pressure.
In short, if you are going to Cusco, this is where you want to stay. Period. We had one gentleman at our hotel who spent one night of his stay at the Hotel Monestario and said he was glad to return to Torre Dorada for the rest of his stay.
