The room was large, clean and included a tub (you have to pay it apart if you want to use it). The position is good, the bed confortable. Anyway the window cannot be properly close (there is some space between the upper part and outside) so the room can be warmer and more silent

Okay to stay for a night. Our room was very small, with a single window to the hallway. Very noisy, especially in the morning starting at 5am when people start having breakfast. Bed sheet are too small, not a single hook or shelf. Basic breakfast. Nice bathroom.

Overpriced overpriced overpriced for what it is. Don't come and If possible avoid aguas calientes. Hotel with very.low standards with a price of a mid range hotel. I feel blackmailed. Here in aguas calientes that's the norm.

The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff / owners were very helpful with recommendations and offering information for restaurants and activities. As rooms go they were spacious well lit and ventilated The breakfast was well supplied with fresh fruit, bread coffee tea and cereal.

Good located. Friendly staff. The room was so and so, not very comfortable for me. Also breakfast was nothing special... Everything was basic and pretty clean. Wi-Fi didn't work very well, sometimes the signal was weak. Probably you can find something better nearby.

The rooms are spatious and clean and showers come with hot water which is not always the case in Aguas Calientes. The staff was very nice and helpfull to us even giving us breakfast packs on the days... More

We enjoyed our stay here, the only criticism is the noise from the street is very bad, especially if you are planning on getting up early to go to Machu Picchu for sunrise. Other than that, I found it to be clean, well presented and with lovely helpful staff.

Big bed. Down duvets. Clean, modern bathroom with hot water. Cable television. Good breakfast with eggs, bread, juices, tea and coffee. Darcy is the friendly owner and offers guided tours of Machu Picchu and offers good tips. It's affordable for the quality of sleep you get. Only 5 minute walk from the buses and trains. A little noisy but as... More

We stayed two nights here and wished we hadn't. Room was clean but had no window to the outside (only the corridor) so felt like a box. Then both nights we had no sleep, as there was so much noise throughout the night; kids, doors banging, shouting etc. on the second morning they were doing DIY at 8.30am which resonated... More
