Andina Luxury
Ranked #20 of 79 Aguas Calientes B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 16, 2012

We had a room on the top floor in the back overlooking the river which was raging and wonderfully loud. Even with the windows closed the river provided enough white noise to wipe out any other noise there might have been in the hotel. Slept great here and the view of the river was spectactular. Close to the busses for Machu Piccu, a good restaurant (Toto's House) and not too far from the train station.

Room Tip: Top floor in the back overlooking the river was a great room.

This hotel gives good value for the money. Great "backyard" (which is a raging river!-- make sure to get a room at the back. The front rooms face the train tracks). The roar of the river may bother some people, but it just becomes white noise after a while.

All in all, it is beautiful in that raw, you're-in-the-jungle-now sort of way. The design was very artful, the rooms comfortable and clean.

This is a 3-star, don't expect a lot of amenities-- there was only one computer for internet use, but I was the only one who seemed to ever use it. Nobody but myself was foolish enough to work while on vacation in this beautiful place.

This lovely hotel was a nice surprise. We had a room facing the river and found the sound of the water soothing. The room wasn't terribly large but it was clean and perfectly comfortable. We appreciated the computer that were available for visitor use. Breakfast wasn't fancy but it was fine. The staff members were nice and helpful. I can definitely recommend it.

My family stayed one night at the Andina Luxury (after a frantic race through the Valle Sagrado to make the last train from Ollantaytambo). The rooms were excellent, modern and clean but small. The balcony overlooking the river was energizing but so tiny it was impossible for even one person to sit down, no room for a chair! The tubs in both our rooms would not drain adequately - a complaint I have seen in other reviews. The staff was helpful and courteous, storing our luggage while we toured Machu Picchu after we checked out. The included breakfast buffet was pretty much standard for the Peru tourist trade: Mostly a good selection but with very runny scrambled eggs. Also, buy your bottled water here at the Andina. At 4 Soles for two liters it is the best bargain you will see all day.

Room Tip: Riverside is the only way to go!

We stayed in the andina hotel on our first night back from the salkantay trek. It is a very nice hotel, flanked by the train tracks on one side, and river on the other (as many hotels are in this area). We stayed in a first floor room facing the river with a small balcony. The room was excellent, as was the view. Although you could hear the train going by, it was not disturbing and the sound of the river was great to fall asleep to. We heard that rooms facing the train tracks were a bit noisy. Also, the room had a Jacuzzi tub – about the best thing you can imagine after 5 days of hiking- and a large flat screen TV with satellite service. There were some small details at the hotel that fell short – one of the lights in the bathroom was out, the remote would not turn on the TV, and the rechargeable battery for the cordless phone in the room would not hold a charge. There are 2 computers for use, and wifi available only in the lobby. The breakfast started at 4 am and was excellent – both warm and cold options were available. We would recommend this place to a friend, as long as they booked a room facing the river.

Room Tip: the hotel is bordered by the train tracks on one side (aka loud), and river on the other (aka peacef...

We only stayed a night but it was a comfortable stay. They had a tub but draining the water took a while. Our room had a nice view of the river so that was nice, compared to staying in a room facing the train track. Check out is normally at 930am, but you can leave your bags in their storage while you visit Machu Picchu. After the trip to Machu, you can hang out in their lounge while you wait for the train to Cusco. lounge has wifi and 2 computers for those who don't have a laptop/smartphone. Train is just a few steps away. No complimentary water but they sell it cheaper than the other restaurants outside. Breakfast is a notch higher with pancakes, scrambled eggs, hot dogs, instead of the usual ham, cheese and bread common in other Peru budget hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river

The rooms are ok. Considering the relatively limited mid-priced options in Aguas Calientes, it's probably one of the better choices. It is by no means luxury however. There was some water damage in the bathroom. The breakfast was one of the better breakfasts we had of our entire trip. Pick your poison: Rooms on the river side have a nice view of the river, but the river is roaring loud (we had to put in ear plugs to sleep) in the spring time with the snow melt. Rooms on the other side have to deal with the train roaring by multiple times throughout the night (but most hotels in Aguas Calientes have the same issue). It was fine for a night.

Room Tip: If the river is high, the rooms on the river side can be noisy with the sound of the roaring river...
