This hotel is conveniently located on the main street in AC; a great location for catching the early bus up to Machu Picchu and exploring the city. The hot water was temperamental but somewhat to be expected in such a remote location. The hotel staff was the highlight of this location. The woman who helped us check in gave us the great news that a bus ticket office was still open past 9PM which meant we were able to buy our bus ticket up the mountain the night before. She packed us breakfast the following morning (4am departure) and let us keep our stuff at the hotel while we explored the city after our Machu Picchu visit. If you're looking for a simple, affordable and convenient spot to stay in AC, look no further!

Close to train
Gal at the didn’t speak English, but we were able to get but with Goggle Translator. She gave me an umbrella to use the morning I went to Machu Picchu as it was raining. She also packed me a bag breakfast for my early morning. Nice room with view of the river. Great location and easy to find from the train station. Friendly staff.

They met us right off the train station and walked us in, the lady at the front desk was extremely helpful and walked us through exactly what we needed to get our bus ticket to macchu picchu. She packed us a lunch/breakfast the next before and sent us off to the climb. The actual property is right next to the river which makes for an extremely relaxing stay. It is also close to great restaurants and a shopping market.

Great place for a great price
A stone's throw away from the train station, but not noisy. Our room had a spectacular view of the river. The staff were very friendly and informative about the bus trip to Machu Picchu. Plenty of hot water, comfortable beds, and a nice breakfast (bread, local cheese, fruit, tea, coffee).
