We had an overnight stay at Sumaq Hotel during our visit to Machu Pichu. A great things from the hotel is that they pick up your bags at the train station upon arrival, and deliver them there 30 minutes before your train departure. The rooms are spacious and well furnished, and the staff was courteous and attentive. One bad thing...

The hotel is in an excellent location with dramatic views of the river. The decor, hotel staff service, and food also were excellent. Rooms were very comfortable. Our view was unique as the hotel is on a hillside, so a tropical garden was outside our window up to ground level. Afternoon tea was served also. Convenient location for walking in...

From the moment you first enter the lobby you are smothered with attention. It starts with a warm towel, a welcome drink and unique snacks while you are being checked in. We had a lovely room with balcony overlooking the river rushing past. The river is loud but we found it to be soothing. Our bed was very comfortable. The...

We loved this hotel! The atmosphere was beautiful while a little understated. The room was very comfortable, with the river rushing by just across the small roadway. It was such a great sound!

The hotel is well located overlooking the river and was fairly empty when we stayed during the low season. We got a very good deal for a five-star hotel and I was more than happy with the comfort and facilities, with a spacious room with little balcony and a huge comfortable bed. An excellent dinner and breakfast were included in...

Stayed only one night but really wished we had stayed longer. The staff was great. Rooms were modern and well kept. The food was absolutely terrific. It's just a 3 min walk up to the city centre but far enough people are not bothering you.
