Nice and affordable hotel. The room was clean and we loved the hot shower after the trekking. There are two types of rooms - with the view to the street which cloud be a little noisy because of trains and the one looking into the patio. We chose the one to the street and the view was amazing. Very mice and helpful staff.
After 7 days of hiking we arrived at Aguas Calientes really destroyed. We didn't have any reservation but the people working at the Hotel Los Caminanes were really welcoming from the very beginning. Because there was now room for just two they gave us a three bed room for the same price which included a chair and a wardrobe as well. As far as I know it is one of the (if not the) best value. The bathrooms got really hot showers and get cleaned daily, always containing toilet paper which is really rare in Peru most of the times. The beds are quite comfortable, the sheets are very fresh and clean. You always get enough space for drying and just putting your stuff somewhere. All the people working there are muy amable, helpful and always take their time for a little chat. If you want you can get a economic breakfast box which is really nice if you do the machu picchu early.
I didn't want to spend much money on the hotels through the sacred valley as I would only be spending a few hours in each one. Los caminantes was perfect for a few hours rest before heating off at 4am on the moonlight walk to Machu Picchu. The single room with bathroom was basic but clean. It is by the train tracks & surrounded by bars & cafes. But with ear plugs in I still managed a few hours shut eye.
We hate Aguas Calientes too! Stay in Ollantaytambo and make the day trip to Machu Picchu. Nobody in AC seems to care that they live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and it feels like a tourist trap through and through.
The people at the front desk are friendly, but that does not make up for the condition of the room/bathroom or the fact that it seems the whole 2nd floor in the back of the hotel is apparently apartments and not rooms for rent. For us, this meant teenage boys holding a wrestling match--yes, a wrestling match--above us in the late evening.
Could have been bad timing on our part, but regardless our room (#3) smelled damp and the bathrooms were not clean. We definitely left Aquas Calientes gladly, in no small part due to Los Caminantes.
This is a good cheap option it's near from the bus and train station. But the only complain was some noisy children that were located in the front room. People is very frendly and if you are going to climb to Machupicchu they have a room where you can left your luggage. It's safe.
