“Simply horrid.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Stay away. Noisy surroundings. Small, quaintly decorated rooms. Indifferent & unefficient staff. I hereby award them with the "Worst Breakfast Award" because of their undrinkable coffee, the rancid butter & cheese, the rubbery bread...anyway, I could go on and on but I think you get the idea, right?
The only good points: Good showers, mostly clean rooms, equipped with plasma TV sets (in case you care about that).
The icing of the cake?. A 9:30 AM check out! How about that? Total rip-off for what they charge.

Stayed here in July before catching the 20 min bus ride to Machu Picchu. Room and bathroom clean. First room was on the inside of the building with no window except one that.opens in to the corridor, no privicy and dark. No problem to change to a room at the back of the hotel, very quite. Breakfast basic but alright. While the hotel is Ok for 1 night I am sure you can do better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back as could be noisy on the front.

While not the worst hotel at which we have stayed, it is run down. Our philosophy is that "it's only one night," it was clean, small and a decent breakfast. We got there late, went to bed and left after breakfast. What can we say? Would we book it? No. We were part of a tour.

Room Tip: Get on at least the third floor to avoid the street noise.

This hotel usually receives terrible reviews, and it is easy to understand why. The room are small and rundown, the view from our room is of a slum street and it was noisy (thankfuly, it rained and drove away the people partying on the street)

But if you are here for only one night and plan to spend your time at Machu Picchu or at least away from the hotel, it will suffice. The sheets appeared clean, the bathroom worked, and we had hot water. Concerning the latter, I would suggest taking your shower early, or, if you are part of a tour group, try to shower as soon as possibile before everybody else turns on the hot water.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms. Anything away from the street would be best. Being assured of hot water w...

I stayed here with an OAT trip and did not have a choice in hotels. My room was on the first floor up from the lobby over looking the street. In the morning I opened my curtains to see the very poor neighborhood in which we were located. The room and bathroom were clean. The best part of the room was the blue bathroom complete with monogrammed towels! It is the type of room that you just want to laydown, sleep quickly and leave. We arrived after dark and after a day of hiking on the Machu Picchu park site, so I was tired and just wanted to crash in bed. The breakfast was eggs cooked to order. I felt sorry for the staff as they were trying to make the best of what they had to work with. If you have a choice look at a variety of other hotels first. I hope that OAT is considering changing hotels.

Room Tip: Stay closer to the railroad station in a hotel overlooking the river.

Other contributors had my room with its sheer drape over a window that didn't latch, into a hallway. No window to the outside at all. The 12' square louver in the shower was enough tp allow barking dogs and screaming children to be heard until much too late. Very poor neighborhood. Yes, it's Peru. However, the balance of our Peru hotels were quite satisfactory. Every tour company catering to Americans/Europeans should do better!

Room Tip: Stay closer to the bus stop to MP.

Okay, Peru is a "developing country." It is unrealistic to expect standards normal in more developed countries. Nevertheless, this place is pretty sad. We were on an Overseas Adventure tour. Maybe there are not that many options in Agua Calientes, the base town for Macchu Picchu. One of our tour members was assigned a room that had not been cleaned. When he lifted the bedspread, the sheets were full of hair. In the bathroom, he encountered a wastecan full of used toilet paper. There is endless noise. Hot water is in short supply. There is no place to hang or put anything in the rooms. Not a pleasant experience.
