7 minute walk from the railway station, located on the bus route to Machu Pichu.
Nice welcome drink & nibblies on arrival. Breaky & dinner was included which was great. Free WiFi, although I had trouble logging in on my phone in my room. It worked well in the dining room & reception. Hubby didn't have a prob logging in with his laptop.
Room was on the ground floor facing the road and the river flowing past.
I found with the noise of the river & busses running constantly during the day & I had a problem hearing the TV with the volume up high. Closed the door & curtains, problem fixed.
Porter collected our bags from the train station & dropped them back on departure
What a find! The service and attention was the best that I have had. The restaurant has a fine chef and everything served looks and tastes like it was prepared by a gourmet chef. The room was a suite which was clean and well supplied...More
Thank you Tania and Sumaq hotel. I was amazed at the service they provided. We arrived late after going straight from the train to a Machu Picchu citadel tour and were very tired.
Tania sent someone to buy our round trip bus tickets from MP Peublo (Aguas Calientes) to MP for the next day. We were so thankful! Also, I made the mistake of only printing my reservation for the hike the next day and not the entrance tickets, and she looked that up for us as well on the government website and had that printed for us.
The Hiram Bingham bus dropped us off in front of the hotel after the tour on the first day as this is a popular hotel for those on our train and tour. Sanctuary Lodge was sold out but we are so glad because Sumaq offered amazing customer service, clean rooms, friendly staff and easy access to bus stop to MP. I would prefer nicer amenities and better food at Sumaq than staying at the Sanctuary lodge, which we heard was bare bones. The spa at that hotel did not even have its own shower.
We had a river view room and complementary dinner. Also, at 5:30 am we had the breakfast buffet prior to leaving for our 6am Machu Picchu mountain hike. They provided us a take away box and we packed a sandwich for our hike. We brought the Gatorade and waters from the room. So convenient as we did not want to think about buying something so early in the morning.
Also, they send ahead your luggage to the train station, which is three blocks away (4 minute walk).
Thank you again Tania and Sumaq!
We are a family of four and stayed here for two nights. It’s at the bottom of Aguas Calientes, close to the river which sounds so peaceful at night and the best of natural noise makers. Beds are super comfortable. Service was lovely. This is by far the nicest place to stay in Aguas Calientes. More
