It’s not a 4 star hotel. It’s an affordable, comfortable and clean pit-stop before or after the climb to MP. My 3 kids and husband slept comfortably.

One of their staff met us at the train station and escorted us up the hill to the hotel. Our room was fine, walls a bit thin but lots of people make noise early trying to catch the bus to Machu Picchu.

Beautiful location at the top of a busy street of restaurants and shops. Lots of steps, but close to the Hot Springs and gorgeous views from our window. The room itself was clean and big enough to fit my family of 5. Very happy with our choice.

Sleep to the sounds of the stream!
Wilson was great - he picked us up from the train station and walked us back. This hotel is at the quiet edge of town overlooking this lovely gushing mountain stream. The entry to hot springs are right next doors. The room was nice for us 5, the bathroom not as much. No warm water and this was in winter. So all in all a functional place, friendly staff and quiet. Recommended.
