We stayed in many hotels in Peru, but this was the best. The city itself is not that pretty, the street outside of the hotel is not properly paved, but once you check in here you feel so pampered that you overlook the outside. During check in, they offered us papaya juice and a mix with potatoes and banana chips. Once we were in our room, a housekeeper knocked on the door with a plate of cookies and chocolates. We went to the bar to have complimentary pisco sours and once we got back to the room, more chocolates on our pillows.
The food was great, the staff really friendly and polite.
We checked out the next morning, but since our train only left at 7pm, we went back to Machu Picchu. We came back back tired and sweaty and they let us take a shower at the spa area, which was fantastic.
There's no other place to stay in Aguas Calientes.
