Los Jardines is strategically located in a small city called Urubamba just between Cusco and Ollantaytambo, therefore allowing you to either go south and do all the sightseeing in Cusco (1hr 50min) passing first through Chinchero (1hr), popular because of its craft fair, or head west to Ollanta (45 min) and take one of the trains departing to Machupicchu without the rush of traveling all the way from Cusco or having to pay an overpriced stay in Ollantaytambo. The charge per night/ per room, not per person, in this hotel is just $24.00!
Sleeping in this town also allows you to get used to the altitude. Urubamba is definetly not as high above sea level as Cusco, I don't know exact numbers at the top of my head, but my boyfriend was first hand witness; as soon as we stepped off the plane the "soroche" (high-sickeness) symptoms began, so we just rushed to the hotel in Urubamba. Whatever it was, the couple hundred less masl allowed him to make it through the night.
Raul, the owner of Los Jardines, and his mother were extremely friendly with us. The first night we got to the hotel they notice my boyfriend's condition and didn't hasitate to offer their help with anything I and specially he could need. He helped us with our luggage and came up stairs with us to the room to check on everything. He broght extra towels, extra pillows, and made sure that the hot water was running, crucial if you want to take a shower in the Andes where the water is freezing cold. He even arranged for a taxi driver to pick us up the next morning to catch the first train to Macchupichu and only charged 30 soles!
In conclusion, the price is totally affortable, the rooms are very clean and nice, the staff is super kind, trustworthy, and would go out of their way to help you... and at last, but not least, the view out of the rooms of the second floor is so beautiful, wich reminds me that there is virtually no noise around the hotel..., another great feature ^.^
