“Beautiful Hotel”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We stayed here for one night during our trip to Aguas Calientes. It's located moments from the train station, and just moments from the bus station that treks up and down the mountain to Machu Picchu. The staff here were so friendly and accommodating. The lobby is gorgeous, with a beautiful view of the river. Our original room was a view of the river, but had two twin beds. My husband and I requested to be switched to a room with a queen or king sized bed, and they immediately catered to our request. In the time they needed to switch our rooms, we treated ourselves to massages at their gorgeous spa. It's a very small spa, but the services were great. We both had one of the best massages in recent memory. The hotel switched us to a room on the opposite side of the hotel, which meant we lost our river view. However, the room was still very nice, although a bit loud as you could hear trains beginning their rides into the city very early in the morning. A nice perk here is that dinner is included in your reservation. They treat you to a 4 course meal which is pretty decent. I wouldn't say it's the most delicious meal had in Peru, but we were pleasantly surprised that we did not have to venture out after a long day of hiking Machu Picchu. The location is wonderful, and it appears to be brand new. Everything is very clean and the hotel makes it very easy to relax and enjoy yourself while in Aguas Calientes.

Room Tip: If the view is important to you, request a room with a view of the river. Just be sure to specify up...

Nice food, comfortable and spacious room (including a good bathroom), and efficient staff. The dining/breakfast room has a rather good view of the cascading river - really loved that . I had originally wanted to stay at the Sanctuary Lodge for its closeness to the Machupicchu site. But there my son would have had to take a single room at the full room price because they cannot accomodate three to a room. That was fine except that the charge for his room would include full board for two people and there was no discount at all for there only being one person dining. Ridiculous not even to have a token discount - so I saved masses of money and booked the Casa del Sol (and was really surprised how pleasant it was). When I later saw the Sanctuary Lodge I was really surprised how dull it looked I and was delighted not to have wasted the money. The Casa del Sol is not super luxurious but it does what it aims to do extremely well. Only gripe was that we had a room train side. Exciting to watch but not not much fun when you want to sleep. But for that I would have awarded this an excellent. It did though not go on all night.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the train side of the hotel.

The hotel was beyond our expectations. We stayed overnight in a suite room facing the river complete with a jacuzzi! The room was big and comfortable and the river view was beautiful. The 4-course dinner included in the room rate was excellent. The breakfast buffet had many choices and of good quality with many choices. The location of the hotel was also good as it was very near the railway and the bus stop going up to Machu Picchu. Service staff were very polite, friendly and accommodating. The jnternet service was fast. The lobby even had a complimentary coffee and coca tea service which is hard to find in many hotels in Peru.

Room Tip: Get a top floor room with a jacuzzi facing the river

As I always say, you HAVE TO rate the places with regard to their surroundings, comparing like to like. In Mach Picchu (Aguas Calientes) Casa del Sol is one of the best! Service is excellent, location even better (2 minutes from train station and Machu Picchu bus), rooms are immaculate, food is very good...nothing is left to chance. A BIG shout out to Miguel, who loves his job and making the guests as comfortable as possible as well as ALL the girls at the front desk who work hard every day taking care of the guests. The highest of recommendations because of the people (first), service and location...no downsides worth mentioning. You'll pay more here, but it's worth it!

Room Tip: Get a suite - you'll be happy you spent the extra money!

Delightful boutique hotel. Quite charming location. Railway runs in front of hotel; back of hotel has great river view. Great that dinner and breakfast included in rate. Nothing too ostentatious. Hotel relatively new, completed last winter. Fantastic stay.

Beautiful hotel with modern design yet somehow still Peruvian. Great location near train and bus. Clean rooms, tv, deep tubs, nice linens. Must get room facing river. Lighting is a bit too dark for my taste. Room is stuffy with open windows but no cross breeze. Surprised that dinner was included and it was a creative, elegant, multi-course meal.
