“Decent breakfast and mediocre stay”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

We stayed here for 2 nights during our visit to Machu Picchu. We booked another hotel that wasn't great, so we wandered from the train station to find this hotel just 5 minutes away.

The breakfast spread was reasonably good, the room was clean but outdated, and the bathroom was very mediocre. It's 5 minutes from the train station, and walking distance to the bus station (that takes you up to Machu Picchu) and the main street with many restaurants.

For a night or two, it's ok, but there are certainly nicer hotels in town!

We paid about US$60 for this hotel which is not alot, but the bed is like sleeping on uneven timber floorboards. Would probably recommend researching a few other options before trying this one.

This hotel is overlooking the train stain. The rep did not meet us at the train station, so thankfully another worker showed us to the hotel. (Take a right out of the station, once you pass the market, take a right and the hotel is a couple buildings down on the left.) It's definitely bare bones, but it worked for us. Bathroom and sheets were clean. It was noisy and the windows are really thin, so closing them doesn't really help. Like most people, we were only there one night and were up at 5am to get to Machu Picchu for sunrise, so we weren't bothered by the morning trains. There was an evening midnight-ish train that woke up my friend, but with my earplugs, I didn't hear a thing.
They have a tv, but need special skills to get it to work. There is an area with two computers (no wireless) and a tv. Breakfast was fine and it was great that it started at 5am, so we could grab a little something prior to heading up to Machu Picchu. If you're looking for a decent place to stay for a night, I would recommend it.

Room Tip: No elevator, so get a lower flr rm.

Room clean, good size for three beds. Beds comfy but as usual ear plugs required. Bathroom clean, plenty hot water and towels. TV worked, true not a lot of storage but then most people don't stay more than a night or two. Breakfast ok (a little heavy on the salt), internet and a little seating area with a couple of easy chairs and a settee beside it. Staff friendly and helpful - limited english. The hotel stored our bags for us and offered us the use of the 'lounge area' when we returned to collect them as we still had a couple of hours before the train back down.

Reviewed 29 March 2011

I can but echo what others have said - this hotel is right by the train station. But there again Aguas Calientes is just a tourist town strung out along the railway track. It is up to you to decide if the noise is a problem

For us the warmth and helpfulness of the staff, plus the quality of the bedroom were the high point. We only stayed one night - the cost of the day ticket to Machu Picchu is so prohibitively high that most tourists are only in the town one night. You get up early, get up to MC at dawn, spend several hours there, then back down to AC and the train back to Cusco.

So if you want somewhere central, with nice staff and a comfortable room, offering by local standards value for money (and are not put off by the train issue) then you have to stay here.

I would recommend the hotel and if I ever returned would stay here again

Friendy staff, good continental breakfast, average rooms, good location. A decent stay for one night in Aguas Calientes. A bit hard to sleep, as it was New Year's Eve and the town's children were running wild with deafening firecrackers, but that's hardly the fault of the hotel. The morning view from one of our windows was spectacular.
