Cosy stay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 2, 2012

We arranged our Peru trip through Gateway Travel Peru and the Santuario was the hotel they booked us into on our trip to Machu Picchu.
The bell boy from the hotel was at the train station to take our luggage to the hotel for us before we boarded the bus for the trip up the mountain.
When we came back down to town and arrived at the hotel our bag was already in our room.
The front desk staff were wonderful, after check in, we were asked if we would like cocao tea which was delivered to our room within 10 mins. Our room was on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the mountains and the raging river below. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious, and our bathroom was not cramped like some post's have sugested.
The breakfast was great, scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, cereal, coffe juices etc.
Our only grip was check out at 9am, but as we were going back up to Machu Picchu again before taking the train to Cusco it wasn't a problem. Our bags were delivered back at the statio in time for our train so we didn't have to worry about carrying them around with us.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to sleep while visiting the ruins.

Unique Quality: Great view of mountains and river.

This hotel faces the Urubamba river and Putucusi mountain. Freddy a hotel clerk picked us up from the train station and walked us down the main street to our hotel lobby. He told us about the different hiking trails we could take that afternoon and he offered to be our personal guide up Putucusi mountain (view of Machu Picchu) after he got out of work. Our hotel room had two standard full size beds, cable t.v., shower, and large windows giving us a wonderful view. The hotel had it's own restaurant downstairs with a very professional staff. At night we were lulled to sleep by the soothing sound of the running river. The hotel staff made every effort the next morning to have breakfast ready for my traveling companions and myself by 5:05am. Kudos to them! The buffet table was layed out with fruit bowls, platters of sliced fresh fruit, peeled avocados, scrambled eggs, cheese, slices of ham, yogurt, juices, a variety of breads, jams, cereal and coffee. Our knowledgeable personal guide picked us up at 5:20am and escorted us to Machu Picchu. He got us on the first bus that went up to Machu Picchu by cutting in front of a huge line of travelers (he had clout with the people in charge). We loved this hotel and the very accomodating staff!!! We felt special!

Unique Quality: Beautiful view of the river and mountains. Very serene and cozy. The staff is professional and very accomodating. Hotel is located away from the noise of the square and restaurants.

Directions: Yellow hotel at the bottom of the hill along the Urumbamba river, located next to the last hotel as the road bends.
