We would definitely stay here again should our travels bring us back to the area.
Having arrived on the train and walked through the enormous retail ‘opportunity’ that is waiting for you around the station, we were walked down the hill to the Sumac hotel.... read more From the moment you walked in you knew that this was somewhere special, which was surprising considering that most patrons will only stay one night on their way to Machu Pichu. Fantastic, polite, well-informed reception staff who were well used to taking care of baggage no matter what time you arrived or departed. Lovely spacious rooms, well-appointed and extremely comfortable. Delightful lounge area with good WiFi throughout. Helpful bar and restaurant staff, and probably the best food we experienced, at dinner, in the whole of Peru. Some noise form early morning trekkers, and the transfer buses to Machu Pichu, but of little consequence. Definitely recommended. More
This is quite a disappointing hotel; it is in need of some refurbishment, both with the building and leadership. We were expecting a top hotel but did not find it... read more at Sumaq, which was very disappointing. The other hotels we stayed in the region (Antigua Casona San Bas in Cusco; Sol y Luna in Urubamba; El Alberguein Ollantaytambo) tried much harder to provide good service and provided considerable better value for money. I would recommend a lower priced hotel and standard amenities.
