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.

Best place in Aguas Calientes
Best place to stay in Aguas Calientes! The hotel was close to the hot spring, and all the way down are all the restaurants and markets. And if you are traveling with a family of 5, the room had 3 twin beds and 1 queen side bed.

Clean, comfortable and great for families.
One of the best hostels we've started at in Peru. Room 206 has 4 beds with a dozen windows, gorgeous views and a private bath with plenty of hot water. As typical the rooms are cool at night but the blankets are plenty warm. The river provides a constant white noise at night so you don't wake up to other people leaving earlier or buses honking, trains whistling, etc.

Great view!
The hotel is on the end of town near the hot springs. Not far from the station, but a steady climb. The Staff was very friendly and helpful. We got a corner room with a beautiful panoramic view of the woods. Curtain not super complete though, so some bleed-in light at night. Breakfast was bread, cheese, luncheon meat, one cereal and the usual drinks. They also prepared an egg to order that was quite good.

We reserved two rooms. My husband was not happy they did not change his room when requested. He was told they were booked. He did not like the humidity smell of his room. My room had bigger windows overlooking the river so it was more ventilated. Staff was super helpful with assisting me locate my reserved tourguide that didn't show as expected. The hotel room was overall comfortable and clean, and the bathrooms were nice with warm showers.

Hard working staff, lousy rooms
Our room had a very strong sewer smell & the condition was not good - the walls had rusty orange marks on them. The breakfast was quite good & the staff was very helpful and really trying hard.
