Great Value for the location... A very cute hotel Apr 19, 2011
Stayed here for our visit to Macchu Picchu. This is probably the best hotel for the money in Aguas Calientes. I didn't bother checking any of the hostels available there and the Inkatara was just way out of our budget. Found this little gem through a Peruvian travel website.
We booked 3 rooms, 2 normal and 1 suite and had arranged for 3 beds per room. The suite was probably the best as it had 2 floors and separated bedrooms. The views from the balcony of the suite was impressive.
Hot water, which is a necessity here, was available without any issues. Although the bathroom could use some upgrading. Breakfast was included in our booking and I must say the breakfast was delicious. We got freshly cooked egg whites along with freshly squeezed Orange Juice. Bread was also available with jam and butter. and you had a choice of coffee and cocoa tea.
The beds weren't anything like you would get in a Westin or The W, but they were comfortable enough for a good night's sleep. Moreover, it gets a bit chilly at night therefore they had space heaters which provided adequate warmth.
The best selling point of this hotel is LOCATION, LOCATION, & LOCATION. It's pretty much dead center of aguas calientes. Walking distance from the little walking markets, the touristy trap restaurants (beware, they rope you in for food, but it's expensive) and the buses that take you to Machu Picchu.
I would suggest that you stay here if you want to go check out the sunrise in the morning at Machu Picchu. You get to beat all the late morning rush and get a private tour of macchu picchu.
