Help me choose a hotel in Aguas Calientes

Jump to last reply

After being delightfully surprised by the wide variety of really nice-looking hotels and hostals in the $40 - $60 price range in Arequipa and Cusco, I have to confess I'm stumped by Aguas Calientes. I've seen a large number of negative comments regarding so many of the hotels and hostals -- even in the mid-range price range -- including complaints about mold, mildew, dirty sheets, bugs, disgusting bathrooms. And so, reluctantly, I'm considering going above our budgeted price range (but not by too much!), just for one night. Here are the hotels and hostals I'm currently considering:

1. La Cabana, which has a regular double room available for $110 and a superior double room for $120
2. El Santuario, which has a regular double room available for $99
3. the Presidente, which has a regular double room available for $99
4. the Rupa Wasi, which only has a suite available for $109
5. Gringo Bill's, which has a regular double room available for $75
6. the Wiracocha, which has a regular double room available for $60

So . . . which one should I choose? We don't need something fancy, but we do need something safe, clean, and comfortable, where we have at least a chance at getting a good night's sleep.

Thanks so much for any help!
