Being a frequent business traveler, it is somewhat hard to impress me with hotel rooms. But the rooms at Aranwa were very nice - high ceilings, spacious, and large bathroom area with rain showers and huge tub with jets. One of our group had altitude sickness the first night, and the hotel doctor was very helpful in treating her with first massage and homeopathic remedies and then oxygen and traditional medication. She recovered by the next day and we were able to take part in the activities arranged by the hotel, which included river rafting and day trips to ruins and shopping. The staff and guides were very friendly and knowledgeable with good command of English (we have minimal Spanish skills). If you're interested in shopping, go directly to Chinchero, as the quality of goods is significantly nicer than Pisac or Ollantaytambo. The town of Chincero is also very scenic, and you will see guinea pigs under the stove here, which we didn't see anywhere else but which is supposed to be characteristic in the area. The ruins at Ollantaytambo are pretty neat, though, so that would be a good reason to go there. Try to see the salt plains at Salineras and the Maray ruins are also interesting. Property grounds were spectacular, and we all loved this hotel - highly recommend it!
