The hotel staff was the best I have ever seen. They go out of their way to assist and to help. They provide all necessary information. Even though I was downstairs past the breakfast hours, they still accommodated me and made sure I had something to eat. They are very friendly and hospitable. While the hotel is only 3 stars, the staff is far better than any 5 star hotel in which I have ever stayed. Thank you Intiwatana El Tambo!!

Loud, no air conditioning, no wifi, bathroom disgusting(smelled of mold, shower no hot water, toilet running and chain kept coming off) dirty sheets, dirty pillows, blankets dirty floors, false advertisement overall nothing like the pictures while booking 4 or 5 star how!! You hear everything and all night people talking outside, soccer games noise, night club or bar noise. Just terrible its literally in the slums. Waste of money its better to stay in cusco to have good food, hotels etc. Place needs serious upgrade all the money we pay doesnt make sense might as well stay with the locals on the streets meaning the dogs!

One of the worst experiences
The hotel is nothing like what they saw it in the picture. They didn't have towels in the room and we had to ask them to bring them. Also there was no hot water. I would surely not recommend it.

Okay room - no hot water
The room was ok - we booked for 3 but gave us a two person room but we agreed though sleeping was a little tight - just be sure to confirm in advance. Also there was no hot water in the morning or evening.

Aguas Frias
We stayed here (as planned) for just one night. The hotel staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions, and they assisted us to arrange a guide for Machu Picchu. But there was not hot water for the showers (or at least not enough), which seems strange for a hotel. On the other hand, I don't see anywhere in the description that there would be hot water. Otherwise, the accommodations were good and fit our budget.

The address that come up is incorrect so we had a difficult time finding the place. When we called the number listed a child answered the phone so it must not be correct. Luckily the local police are very helpful and showed us the way. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The facility is average and the Wifi above the 2nd floor is spotty at best. The location is a short walk to the train station and the hot springs, and restaurants are very everywhere. It’s also a short walk to the busses to Machu Picchu. Get good directions before you go, stay on the first two floors, and you’ll have a great visit to Aguas Calientes.
