Garden was nicePosted Nov 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
There aren't many options in Urubamba. This is your run of the mill hotel, and is a place to rest your head if you're heading to the Sacred Valley. The Gardens are nice, but the bed is very hard. If the bed was more comfortable I would be giving a different review - felt like I was sleeping on the floor. The people that work there are very nice, and extremely helpful. The hotel seems very safe, as they have a guard at the front that locks the gate entrance of the hotel. There are really no other alternatives to eating at the hotel so you may want to bring some food with you.

Very nicePosted Apr 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is wonderfully located as a starting point to head to Machu Picchu. If you are however looking for a nightlife or restaurants, this is not the place. We look an hour bus from Cusco here, and then caught the train to Machu Picchu early the next day. Great location to discover other surrounding areas of interest. Internet is very sketchy at best, about 60% success rate.

Boutique San Augustin- more of a hostel than hotelPosted Jan 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very disappointed after reading many great reviews. The front desk staff was very unhelpful, first pretending that we did not have reservation for 2 rooms and only giving us after we showed the confirmation. The front doors of both rooms left a half centimeter crack which enabled bugs and small spiders to enter the room at will (but apparently none exited). Rooms are small. Grounds are nicely landscaped. Not much to do in walking distance. Breakfast was ok and upto the local standards.

A Wonderful Experience; Highly RecommendPosted Dec 31, 2013
Pros: The peaceful setting. The charm of staying in a converted/restored monastery that proved to be extremely comforable with a memorable experience.
Cons: Re-train the hotel staff or hire persons who take responsibility for their actions (or non-actions). Make customer service a priority!
Location: (covered in narrative, above)
This 100+ year-old restored/renovated/modernized hotel provides a pristine setting for a wonderful, enjoyable experience. It is quiet quiet quiet!! The lovely garden sitting areas, the inner courtyard, and the ambiance provide unforgetable memories. We wouldn't stay anywhere else if we repeated this journey 10 more times! The rooms are rustically comfortable, but the bathrooms are strikingly modern - from the stone-wall enclosed shower (how refreshing was the shower with strong pressure/flow to provide a massage-like experience. The monestary's chapel provided for even quieter moments. Can you say "peaceful calm?" The downside? The hotel staff need to be re-trained; their attitude is lackadaisical at best and their interaction with guests is best characterized as "detached." Nobody seemed to take ownership for screw-ups. Taxi arrangements - made twice, and in both English and Spanish - fell through the cracks. We three waited for naught, in the rain at the train station, for the pre-arranged taxi that never came. No apology, no excuses, nothing! (other than "I'll pass this one to the responsible (irresponsible?) person. Stay here for the charm and memories, but do NOT relay upon hotel staff....do everything yourself and you'll come away with a great hotel experience.
