I had no problems in one night at this hotel, unlike some other reviewers. I found a very clean room an pleasant bed. Indeed the location is indeed noisy, breakfast is poor and the hotel does not offer anything special. However, once my goal was just having a room to sleep a night in my expedition to Machu Picchu (and I guess that is the goal for most people who overnight at Aguas Calientes) the Hotel did fulfill its purpose. Only if I found a dirty room the Hotel would bother my visit to Machu Picchu, and that did not happen.
