Located in Aguas Caliebtes village near the bus stop that take us to the Matchu Pitchu site, Sumaq hotel was a amazing.
Unexpected in many way:
- Super friendly... read more staff specially Miguel (Bar) and Melissa (Cooking lessons)
- Spacious room and very confortable bed
- DELICIOUS restaurant: probably the best in the area.
=> This hotel made our stay a piece of heaven
A real 5 stars, I do recommend this hotel
This may just be the nicest hotel I've stayed in - anywhere! It is a lovely hotel at the base of the mountain. Rooms are beautifully-appointed, beds are comfortable and... read more we had a quiet and restful night's sleep. Service is outstanding as well. The hotel provides so many little extras. Our check-in included an invitation to sit on comfortable couches and enjoy a lemonade and small snack, while they came to us with an ipad to complete the check-in process. We left our room briefly to explore the area, and came back to find a beautifully arranged fruit tray waiting for us in our room. An attendant knocked on our door and asked us if we needed more towels (even though we had already been provided 2 per person), then offered us chocolates when we politely declined. Breakfast and dinner (with wine) were included in our overnight stay. Both were delicious. They even offered us a free cooking class, which we had no time for. (Machu Picchu awaited!) This was an outstanding hotel, definitely the best of the 5 hotels that we stayed in while traveling around Peru. More
LOCATION-After arriving at the train station, we were met with someone from the hotel who took our luggage & walked us to the hotel.
It is situated at... read more the edge of the small town of Aguas Calientes but not too far from restaurants & the centre of town. The rooms are well appointed & lobby is cozy.
Based on limited observation, I dare to say it’s the nicest one in town.
STAFF-Check in was very personal. Instead of the staff sitting or standing behind the counter, we sat in the living room type lobby & got processed there. Naemi was very welcoming & assisted us with our requirements to get us up to Machu Piccu. She also got us connected with a private guide, Rodrigo Jaen Becerra. I highly recommend him based on his command of English, knowledge of the area & shortcuts here & there.
ROOM-we had a river view & the sound of the water rushing added to the overall ambiance. Plus it was nice just to watch hikers walking on their way to the citadel in the early morning up to mid-afternoon.
We stayed her for two nights during our recent visit to Machu Picchu. The is a very nice and new facility. Even more importantly, the staff at the... read more hotel and exceptionally warm and welcoming. The restaurant at the hotel was also excellent. We would definitely stay here again should our travels bring us back to the area.
Beautifully appointed hotel with a great view of the rive and nestled between the hills of the Andes. We were surprised how sub tropical the area is given the dry... read more season in the sacred valley. The staff met us at the train station which we did not expect and put our bags in the room for us. We were met with wonderful drinks and appetizers in the relaxed and well appointed cozy lobby. After our tour to Machu Picchu they let us stay in the lobby to relax and enjoy more complimentary drinks and appetizers. Nice touch and a pleasant surprise. Dinner was excellent and the breakfast buffet was the largest and most varied I have seen in a while. Hard to pick with so many choices. The rooms were clean and modern and we had an issue with the tv which they fixed immediately. I was told the bus would drop us off in front of the hotel but when I told the driver he did not stop at the hotel and dropped us off at the main bus depot with everyone else. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone. Most people we spoke to did not like their accommodations at all and were very unhappy as the place is full of hostels and small inns. Although a bit pricier than we expected for Peru it was money well spent. More
