“Aguas Calientes is not so hot”
Reviewed September 10, 2008

The hotel is located off the beaten path in a residential section of town. The room was a concrete box, small and damp with no window other than a sliding window overlooking the hallway and no furniture other than the bed. There was a dehumidifier in the room that made a terrible noise when it started up. The dehumidifier was obviously necessary because there was a large water spot on the ceiling, partially covered up by a painting, which was the only decoration in the room. Although the room was prepaid through a package, we left and booked a room at the Hatuchay Towers. We knew we wouldn't be getting any sleep in this dingy, damp, smelly room, so paying for another hotel was worth it.

We booked this hotel through South America Hotels.net, which features nice photographs of clean rooms with nice views. Our room had no windows, opening into a corridor near reception. It was damp, smelled damp and had been occupied by smokers, even though we requested no smoking accommodation. There was no furniture other than a bed and bedside cabinets. The room was almost clean.
Everyone gets up early in Aguas Callientes and things get pretty noisy at 5am. But this hotel seemed to be noisy all night with staff listening to the radio loudly in reception, or walking the corridors with their walky talkies.
Breakfast at the hotel was average.
The location was a little way from the better end of town and surrounded by building sites. We had to walk through rubble to get to the reception.
In over a month of travel, this was the worst hotel we stayed in while in Peru.

  • Liked — Can't think of a good point.
  • Disliked — Smelly, damp, noisy room.

The service here really shines. When the girl at the front desk realized that we were going to miss the free breakfast (b/c we were planning on going to MP before sunrise) she offered to have packed lunches made by 5AM! They also stored our luggage for the day, then brought it out to the train station in time for our train.

The rooms themselves are nothing to speak of -- small and cramped, but everything was clean (esp. the bathroom). Be careful not to get one of the fully interior rooms with no outside windows for ventilation. Our bathroom window cracked open onto the hallway to let the steam out and between that and the thin doors, we could hear everyone passing in the hallway. Earplugs did the trick, but be forewarned.

  • Liked — Excellent service.
  • Disliked — You could hear hallway noise
