this is a 'no frills place'! Rooms are clean with comfortable beds. We did not have enough hot water for a quick shower ( 2 adults 1 child).
It is impossible to sleep past 4:30 am when people eat breakfast to head out and deag the chairs on the tile floors. (even from the 4th floor). Breakfast had mostly items that travelers would avoid to prevent getting sick so it was not worth it. There is no ac so you hear all the dogs barking below. The noise of the train waa not a problem.
I was impressed by the size and cuteness of this quaint hotel in ac. Most of the staff was nice and the free early breakfast was much appreciated as I was hiking to mp early. I spent 2 nights here and was happy with the room and view. The only reason I did not give it a 5 was due to the loud noise from the train station outside my window so I could not open it. I had to play music on my phone just to fall asleep which made it difficult getting up so early but if you can sleep through noise this will be no issue. the bed was comfy and big so this helped. Good price for a cute hotel.
This hotel is cheap and perfect for a one night stay. The receptionist was very helpful and provided a map and proceeded to talk through all locations. The location, however, does not bode well for a good night sleep only because it literally overlooks the train station so train horns and train noises late into night and early morning are sure to wake you up, however, that was the only noise. The room was pleasant enough and clean with plenty of blankets - bed very comfortable. The bathroom, however, was very small and really struggled to get 2 people in it. Not the cleanest but all in all - suitable for one night. I would have preferred to get a good night sleep as you need to get up at about 3am to get to the front of the bus queue at 5/6am for Macchu Picchu if you want to see the sunset. As most of the hotels are located quite near the train station, its unlikely you avoid nearing the train horns completely. Apart from visiting Macchu Picchu there isn't much to do in Aguas Calientes - there are plenty of gift shops and restaurants and bars but the town is literally at the foot of a mountain so it really is just a stop over for Machhu Picchu. For us, one night was more than enough.
We stayed one night at this hotel. It is right next to the railway station. The staff were excellent and always so nice and genuine. The window in our room had to be kept open constantly as there was a foul odor if the window was closed. This causes some bugs to get in and was a bit annoying. But other than that it was just what we were looking for in Aguas Calientes. The rooms are small but nicely decorated and we enjoyed our stay. Wifi didn't work well in the rooms. This is a budget hotel, and for the price, I would recommend it to most travelers staying a night or two just looking for a place to sleep before doing Machu Picchu.
The hotel was very close to railway station, a short walk. One needs a map of where the hotel is before arriving there because there are no taxis in Aguas Calientes to take you. I did not hear any noise from the trains and my room overlooked the train station. and I had hot water.
