We had 2 rooms opposite each other for our family of 5. 1 room had the view of the rapids and the other had the view of the main street. We found that we didn't want to open our window as the sound of the water was very loud and we couldn't hear each other talk but with the window closed we couldn't really hear it.
There was tea/coffee and juices available in the foyer 24 hours.
Breakfast included a selection of juices, fruits, cereals, meats, some croissants and then egg however you wanted them coked. This was included in the price.
Dinner which was also included in the price, consisted of a set menu where there were a few choices and 4 courses. Its available from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. We did feel that the lighting was too dark during dinner and made us feel very tired. The menu was in Spanish and English which made it easier to choose. I wasn't feeling very well and they offered to make me a chicken noodle soup which I thought was great.
There was free Wi-Fi although we found that it only worked in the foyer and not in our rooms.
The BEST shower we have had in 3 weeks travelling through Peru.
Everything that Aguas Calienties has to offer is all within walking distance of the Hotel.
When we were departing in the morning for the train station, the staff helped us with our luggage and did not seem to expect or want for a tips which we were shocked about but gave them some anyway. They seemed surprised.
Staff seemed friendly and spoke reasonable English.
