One of the best hotels in town!Posted Aug 31, 2014
Great, fun hotel right with very friendly staff and a nicely decorated room. Bus for machu picchu stops right in front of hotel, putukusi trail right behind, and located at a great location right at the edge of town. The included dinner was amazing, some of the best food we had in Peru! It's a bit pricey, but with meals and drinks included it works out well.

Pampering after Inca Trail HikePosted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Location, staff, food, cleanliness, strong water pressure of showers, comfy beds, and decorations of hotel-its pretty.
Cons: Not sure-we didn't notice anything.
Location: This hotel is in Aguas Calientes on the road right a 2 minute walk to where you take the bus up to Machu Pichu. The whole town is a walking town.
After the hike, we checked in to this beautiful hotel. We were delighted to find out that high tea, our 3 course dinner, a sumptious buffet breakfast, a freshly squeezed welcome juice and decorative and delicious snacks and welcome pastries delivered to the room were all included in our price! Also complimentary was a class on making pisco sours and ceviche, which we got to eat and drink with Freddy and Laura-they were so charming and sweet and the food and beverage wonderful! My friend had a massage which she said was one of the best she had ever had and we enjoyed our balcony and listening to the river. It was a very luxurious experience and we would recommend this hotel and its staff and food (especially ceviche and alpaca) highly, especially if you want to recouperate after the hike.

Great ROI - watch your room placementPosted Jun 2, 2014
The staff was pleasant and helpful - very approachable and service oriented. Hotel room was very good -- and I stay at Starwood hotels regularly. The inclusive meals were way more than I expected. Three course dinner for everyone staying in the room and large buffet breakfast. One free drink per person plus the nice extras upon arrival (drinks, snack, hot towels). Location was fine... some say its 'far' from town, but it is all relative -- AC is not that large so a 200m walk from the train station is hardly an issue. Biggest issue was the proximity to the train tracks -- we were on the 5th floor, at the far end, windows/balcony facing the woods/train tracks. Trains stop from 12:30am - 5am but otherwise they run regularly. While trying to sleep, felt like the trains were driving right through the room! Could be improved by staying on the lower levels, facing the street.

Architect didn't consider river view potentialPosted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: Room was very nice. Lobby and bar area was also very nice but could have been more spacious. Buffet breakfast was great. Dinner was very good.
Cons: When we first arrived for the complimentary Pisco drink the bar staff seemed overwhelmed and we waited a long time for our drinks.
Location: Location was ok but the town overall wasn't of much interest to us. Came to see Machu Piccu which was very inspiring to us.
The thing that was disappointing to me was the fact that the architect didn't take more consideration for the view of the Urabama River. The roof of the building is such that you have to go stand on the balcony to see the river which is outstanding. We were on the fourth floor. When there is a view of something as spectacular as the Urabama River an architect should definitely take advantage of it. We had to stay at a hostel for a night because we arrived a day early and it had a bay window looking on to the Urabama River. The view and sound was fabulous if you appreciate that sort of thing. The hotel is a little overpriced in my opinion but overall it's a good place to stay.

Americans Visiting PeruPosted May 31, 2014
Cons: nada. if you go to Machu Picchu don't stay in your hotel, take advantage of your time up there. Sumaq takes care of the rest for you!
Location: walk along the inca trail. Highly recommend fit young people to buy Huayna Picchu tickets online in advance, definitely a spiritual experience.
Honestly, nothing but excellence here! From the second I stepped off the train I had 5 minutes to catch a bus to climb Huayna Picchu, and the staff waiting for me helped me do this amazing feat! They were so accommodating, and allowed my mom into the room and carried our luggage while doing the official check in later upon my return. Also, they offered a drink and something sweet to eat during the check in process. Management was awesome. clean hotel, accommodating staff. They served us the BEST food we ever ate while in Peru. As well, they made life easy for us and we got on the 2nd bus leaving for Machu Picchu from directly outside the front door of the hotel without waiting in line. They also got our Machu Picchu and bus tickets for us, all we did was lend them our pass ports and give them the money for it. They had the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in! Also, river view was beautiful. I awoke with leg cramps from climbing Huayna Picchu, so at 2 a.m. I got in the bathroom's jacuzzi and was able to get to sleep again! Staff were super nice and helpful, will recommend to all !

location is good with wonderful views of the riverPosted May 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was a good staging point for our trip to Machu Picchu. The bus to the Citadel stopped right outside the door. I was glad that it wasn't in the center of town since Aguas Calientes is all about tourism and packed with tourists and souvenir booths all selling virtually the same items.
