Pros: -Good location (close to everything) -Above average customer service -Great breakfast -Beautiful view of the town, river & mountains (we stayed on the 3rd floor) Cons: -The bathroom was terrible (turning the shower on for more than a 30 seconds meant the tub would fill up with water because the drain was completely clogged - it wouldn't drain for...

There's much to like about this hotel but having a corner room meant I had to contend with the boom-boom from the bar across the street which didn't end until after midnight. This was a challenge with a 5am start. On the positive side, the room was modern & clean, the reception & restaurant staff were very helpful, preparing a...

Reserved a suite to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The room was exactly as advertised. Bottled water, fruit basket, bathrobes for the hot tub and 2 free Pisco sours. The staff were friendly, the breakfast was plentiful and the hotel is clean with an elevator. Located on the top of the town, it was quiet and had a nice open...

This is a great hotel in a good location. I found all the staff very friendly and accommodating. If you are expecting a luxury hotel like the Ritz or Marriott, do not go to Machu Picchu. This is exactly what I expected. At first, the lack of Internet in the rooms was disappointing, but that actually made me get out...

" The front desk staff named Irvin took good care of us. He did an extra mile by allowing us to use the room to freshen up after our climb at Wayna Picchu even if we were already checked out. The service was for a fee though but still it was appreciated. The takeaway breakfast fruits and sandwich was a...

The hotel was located in a nice area of Aguas Calientes. We had a large room (suite) which was very nice. It was disappointing that Internet access was only available in the lobby. The breakfast was very good along with the service.

Rooms oversized . Good location . Useless unfriendly staff. Rude arrogant at the front desk . Was very upset with one of the male supervisors at the front desk as he has zero guest services . Location not bad .. had to walk through the small restaurant to find the lift ..

Not my favorite hotel during our Peru trip but this is the best we found for the price. The nicest hotel in M.P. is Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, which is far too expensive as it's located in M.P. and not Aguas Calientes. The hotel is less than 10 min walk to the bus station to go to Machu Picchu ($25/person for...

This is a nice hotel and with nice staff, nice rooms, a nice location, and a good breakfast. We did have two issues during our stay though. Both the sink and the bathtub had plumbing leaks when the water was turned on. This resulted in a semi-flooded bathroom floor. We used our soiled towels to partially stem the tide. We...

When we arrived in Aguas Calientes we were not sure what to expect as it in not a very attractive town. However the hotel was nice and clean and the rooms a good size. They start breakfasts at 5am for the Machu Picchu early starters, and the breakfast was lovely with a good selection.
