My daughters and I agreed that this was our favorite hotel during our travels in Peru. The thing that made the difference with this hotel was the staff. They were very helpful, friendly, and attentive to every detail. Our triple room was spacious and had three comfortable beds. We really enjoyed the dinner provided by the hotel. The breakfast was good and enough for us to start our day. The location of this hotel is excellent - it is very near to the Peru Rail Train Station as well as the buses to Machu Picchu. The location and uniqueness of Aguas Calientes is really part of the charm of this place. It is the closest town to Machu Picchu and is situated in a dramatic location at the base of the mountain. The town is surrounded by rushing waters of nearby rivers and streams. It is a quirky town because Peru Rail runs through the middle down a main thoroughfare. Other travelers have mentioned that they were bothered by being next to the railroad tracks, but we did not find it was a problem. One way to avoid this would be to request a room that faces the stream on the opposite side of the hotel. Our stay was restful and refreshing. We would definitely stay here again.
