Wachuma B&B
Ranked #35 of 79 Aguas Calientes B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 9, 2012

It is a simple hotel, but very clean, and the staff is very friendly.
The night we spent there, there was a rehearsal for the anniversary of the city in the schoolyard that sits in the back of the hotel. This test was until 04:00 am. Outside this essay, the hotel is very quiet and well located. I Recommend to anyone who does not want to spend much. It was an excellent cost / benefit ratio.

Room Tip: If you need tickets to Machu Picchu, you can ask them by email.

My husband and I stayed at Wachuma B & B on September 29, 2012. Room was affordable and clean. Jimmy and staff are very friendly - they safely stored our luggage during our trip to MP. Nice to have a TV, but didn't use it. Th biggest downfall, and it is a huge one, is the amount of noise coming from the court yard out our bedroom window. Trying to get an early night sleep to prepare for the next morning was impossible, as was sleeping for more than an hour at a time. Army drills at 9pm, and then periodic yelling through out the night. A domestic fight was occuring somewhere in the neighbourhood, complete with blood curdling screams. The hall light was left on until very late, and it blared through the glass windows into our room. Not a pleasant night - our worse in Peru.

Wachuma is centrally located and close to the railway but backs on to a building site at present (noisy from 0800 but you'd want to be getting up to Macchu Pichu anyway).
The rooms were Ok once we had changed from a very small "matrimonial" room to a twin room which had much more space. A persistent but minor leak in the bathroom was a little annoying but solved temporarily with a towel. It was a later realization that the landings on the stair above looked down directly into the bathroom through the window into the atrium.
The heating was inadequate but the rooms otherwise comfortable. Breakfast was fine and the staff helpful. Google translate made up for our lack of Spanish. Wifi worked OK.

Room Tip: Avoid a matrimonial room if you want space and avoid the ground floor if you want privacy in the bat...

I arrived in Aguas Calientes in an agreement with a guide I'd met once, no tickets in hand, and no clear way to find my tour the next morning. Jimmy and Jenny were very patient with me, helping to call my agency, and finally Jimmy walked me down to the ticket office and convinced them to print me a new ticket when things went from bad to worse. Jimmy then showed me where I could get on the bus in the morning and verified that my bus tickets were good to go. Overall, above and beyond making a visitor feel comfortable in a strange city so many miles from home!

The rooms are cute, quaint, and CLEAN... moreso than any of the B&B hotels that I've recently used in Lima, Tarapoto, and Puerto Maldonado. Wireless internet works well in the lobby and in my room (on the second floor). There is some noise from the children playing in the courtyard in the back, but it all stopped after 9:30pm.

Great value, and excellent service... more like "hosts" than employees, really! Highly recommended for the budget traveler.

PS. Jimmy collects coins from all over the world. Have some in your pocket when you go so you can expand his collection!

We stayed for two nights. The owners, Jimmy and Jenny, went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. I haven't met 2 more hospitable since my arrival in Peru. The rooms are quaint and clean, showers have extremely hot water, and the views of the surrounding mountains are gorgeous. Jenny met us at 4:30 AM with our breakfast all set up in the atrium so we were in good shape to head up to Machu Picchu.

The only drawback was that our room was over the local school's courtyard and we just happened to be in town during their annual "pageant". This was at no fault to the hotel but it gave us some good laughs. The B&B is centrally located and easily accessible to any of Aguascalientes Calientes amenities. Thanks Jimmy and Jenny!!
