We stayed at Hotel Sol for one night in April. Unfortunately the hotel was full for our second night but the hotel arranged for us to stay in their other hotel (Hostal Iskay - see separate review) and moved our cases and even escorted us to the Hostal in the evening.
Hotel Sol is perfectly located near to the main square for eating out, shopping or just watching the world go by. It is less than a 10 minute walk from the train station to. We had a large room with a balcony overlooking the river with a view across to the Inca ruins and mountains. Completely breathtaking. The room was spotlessly clean with a large bed, fresh bedlinen and towels.
There is no TV in the room (brilliant) but if you really wanted to watch there is one in the lounge area. There was wifi available but not a great reception.
We didn't have any breakfast at the hotel as we were out early to go to Machu Picchu but they gave us a packed meal instead which was more than sufficient and in fact did us for lunch too!
The staff were incredibly helpful and polite. We left our camera in a taxi returning to Cusco and
on the off chance emailed the hotel in case it somehow made its way back to them (by photo recognition!). Amazingly it did and Wilbert put us in touch with the taxi driver who delivered the camera to our hotel in Cusco the next day - thank you again :)
We would highly recommend this hotel - reasonably priced, perfect location and spotless.
