Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Everything about this hotel is fine, the only thing that stands out is that the windows don’t seal all the way and you can hear the river and other people in the street. The owner was very nice and helped us with getting our tickets to Machupicchu. Bathrooms have a ventilation window to the hallway that can be opened from outside. Has a good view of the town.

Nice hotel with good breakfast and helpful front desk. The room was fine and it was quiet. The view was nice from the window. I would stay here again. There isn't an elevator which was the only hard thing after hiking all day

This was the nicest budget accomodation that we stayed in. The room was immaculate. The bathroom was modern, clean, and had the best hot water and water pressure. The windows overlooked the river so it was loud in a natural soothing way. The hotel is located away from traffic, trains, and pollution, but a five minute walk down the hill to the main square. The only downside is that the juice served with breakfast was questionable- my husband drank it, but I did not; he got a little sick, but I did not.... And they store bags and have a little bathroom where you can cleanup before getting on the train back to Cusco/Sacred Valley. Overall, I recommend that you stay there. We paid $30/night, but I suspect we could have talked them down as it was the low season and not all rooms were filled.

Loved this hotel! This is a family run business and the two owners are the cutest and sweetest couple that you could ever meet. Staying there felt like you were being taken care of by your grandparents. I feel this hotel is underrated and is truly a missed gem in Machu Picchu. I stayed on the fifth floor in a double room and the views that I had were amazing and breathtaking. My room was a corner unit, which meant we had two views. One of the waterfall and upper mountains, while the second view was of the river and the main city strip. Other than hearing the sounds of the river at night, it was a nice peaceful room. Room was larger, clean and the bathroom was clean and had great water pressure.

Breakfast was included in our stay and is located on the 6th floor with panoramic views of the town. This location is also great because you are close to many restaurants, about a 5 minute walk to the Thermal Springs and about a ten minute walk to the bus pickup location to Machu Picchu.

They also allowed us to store our suitcases at the hotel, while we went to Machu Picchu, so that we didn’t have to find alternative storage, while away.

We spent two nights in the hotel and we like everthing about it. As im wrighting this we are still here and we have nothing to complain about. The room is a little could but thats no problem as well beause they have a good little on the wall. (See pictures) The room is very clean and there are some cosy details with an peruan touch to give it a warm look.
All in all very recommandeble!
PS: ask for a room wit a view! ;-)

Nice family that is quick to respond to your questions! In the morning you get a good, simple and fresh breakfast, starting the day well!!!
We had a good internet connection in the bedroom and the shower was good and warm. This was nice after a walk / hike in Machu Picchu.
Nice quiet location and definitely recommended for a good stay. There is an elevator so you don't have to take the stairs :)
Thanks again for everything!

My daughter and I had hiked with a trekking company. Therefore, the hotel had been booked by the expensive trekking company I used (Llama Path) and not by myself. Having said that, I wish I had paid extra money for an upgraded hotel. This place reminds me of the one-star hotels I stayed in when I was poor and in my early 20's and traveling through Europe. The first room they gave us smelled damp and musty. I went to lay on the bed and noticed what appeared to be black mold on the wall. The "window" looked out onto the stairwell of the hotel (!). I was rather upset about the room. I asked for another room but was told that there were no other rooms. The gentleman who owns/runs the place must have thought I was a total nut because I started frantically miming how there was mold on the wall. He gave me another room. The gentleman is a rather sweet man - it's just that the place is basically a one-star hotel and I was expecting something nicer. The hotel is a long hike up the hill from the train station, which is difficult if you are carrying your own bags (as I was). The breakfast was the worst we had while we were in Peru - and it was heartbreaking because the old gentleman seemed so proud of the breakfast. If you are on a strict budget, I would look at other choices in Aguas Calientes. If you aren't on a strict budget, don't stay here - look for something that has a better review on Trip Advisor.

the family running this inn was very hospitable during our recent 2-night stay. there was a power outage in aguas calientes during that time and they provided candles, extra blankets and luckily their water is propane heated so no cold showers! breakfast was included - juice, coffee, tea, bread, fruit, cheese, ham and eggs made to order. location is close to everything - train and bus stations, crafts market, restaurants and hot springs. rooms have modern/clean decor. highly recommend staying here!

I really hate to complain... and to leave bad reviews. Before I detail my experience with this hotel, I'll also tell you a disclaimer: It's possible that the room they gave me is the exception. I considered asking for a different room, but thought the other rooms could be just as bad. However, when I walked upstairs to breakfast the next day, I saw several rooms that looked bright, airy and clean. However, room 103 (on the first floor) was the absolute worst experience in my life of basic hotel stays.

Here's the thing: I don't have super high standards :) Budget is part of my three part requirement for traveling. When I book a hotel, I look for cleanliness, health/ safety, and budget. I'm fine with basic rooms and I put up with a lot without complaining. However, there were so many issues with this room that I feel compelled to let other travelers know to make sure you don't get a room on the first floor.

First of all, many hotels/ properties in Aguas Calientes struggle with mildew/ mold due to infrastructure/ climate. Many of the places I stayed had a slight smell and you could see moldy areas that were painted over. But THIS room literally made me sick. When I walked in, the mold smell was so strong I wanted to cover my nose... when I left, every piece of clothing that was outside of my locked luggage reeked of a strong mold smell. This includes my jacket, pajamas, and my luggage itself. The second thing I noticed was a pile of fingernail clippings on the table that hadn't been cleaned. OK, maybe they accidentally didn't see it- but not exactly confidence inspiring.

When I drew the covers back from the bed, little insects flew out. Probably due to the moisture in the air, hopefully not due to uncleanliness-- but at this point, I was getting an icky feeling that made sleep difficult (after a very exhausting hike, this is probably the only reason I could sleep at all, LOL..). A few more gross/ weird observations. The toilet leaked water all over the bathroom floor, and the shower was leaking as well. Finally, there was this really WEIRD window (frosted plastic) that led to our neighboring hotel room's bathroom. If you open the sliding window you get a view of their toilet. True, who would choose to open the window?? Ha ha... but I opened it without knowing where it led. And this window wrapped from our bathroom into the hotel room- the other problem being that every time a neighbor used their bathroom it would fill our own room with light at all hours of the night.

The final weirdness is that there was a light in the room that literally flashed brightly every few seconds. I was so tired I just slept on top of the mattress wrapped in my many jackets for warmth, which all smelled like strong mold until I washed them after my Peru trip.

I don't mind older, basic rooms. The breakfast is fine and the other rooms, from all appearances, didn't look like my room. Just make sure you don't stay in room 103 :) And probably any other room on the first floor. When I left my sinuses are going crazy... yes I have allergies to mold, but I'm pretty sure the amount of mold would be a health hazard to anyone.

We stayed here for two nights and we'll never do it again. We asked for a family room, but they were 'not available'. The stair house had no roof. The room they tried to put us in was smelling stuffy. It is located in the centre of the town. You can get a much better place for less money, try the adjacent hotel or any other, but avoid this one.
Staff were not unfriendly, but reacted indifferently to our requests.
