          Good hotel. When we stayed, the hotel had some renovations being done so it was a bit messy and kind of smelly in the hallways, but the terrace was beautiful and we didn't notice it more than just walking to and from the room. Really though, people stay here for the access to Machu Picchu. It was a warm welcome to not have to take a bus up and down the mountain to rest, and we got to enjoy the early morning and evening at the park and avoid the lunch hours when the sun is hottest and park is busiest. Also, the hotel provides free soda / bottled water for its guests, which made it very easy to stay hydrated and relaxed. The food is also included, though it wasn't great. Most of the dishes were things we ate for calories and not because it was particularly delicious. But again, the location is why people come here and the staff does a great job of taking care of its guests. And the beds are comfortable and much needed after hiking around Machu Picchu all day.

          Wonderful view of Machu Pucchu. Right outside the main gate. We have left the Uruabamga Valley and have reached the jungle area. Very green and it is not the rainy season yet. The Hiram Bingham Train is wonderful. Dining car, bar car and live music.

          The hotel is simply incredible. Starting from the staff who treats you as if you were from the royal family! whatever you ask for, they get you. Food is spectacular and is included on the price. you can have whatever you want - even a bottle of wine for "free"!
          the room is also really good but nothing in special. although they go to the room a lot when you are not there to organize you clothes and stuff. very thoughtfull.
          the highlight for me is the spa outside with a particular view to machu picchu. surreal. worth every cent. and you can order drinks and snakcs while hanging in there enjoying the view. sth only the sanctuary can do for you!!
          The proximity with machu picchu is incredible. this is the only hotel up there on the moutains so you get to be the first to arrive in the city to see sunrise and get to be the last to leave! no need to worry on bus timing!

          tip - this hotel is one of the luxury hotels so you have a visa infinity you can pay the cheapest fare and get an upgrade upon your arrival:

          yes the hotel is expensive, but if you have a chance and the love for machu picchu, go do it! even for one night! it is worth it!

          The Sanctuary Lodge sits right at the entrance to the site. Modestly built but luxuriously run, it is all about two things: service and location. It delivers on both. Food is freshly prepared and delicious, served in the light and airy dining room. In the evening there are panpipe players. Our room, one of the suites, had an orchid garden overlooking the mountain. I might also have opted for the ground floor rooms which share a common grassy courtyard. Best of all is the evening access (and technically morning, too - though we slept in) to Machu Picchu, when you can leisurely explore the site after all of the others have left.

          This monastary was reconfigured and they get a lot of bang in very little space. It was peaceful, serene and just what was needed after a day on the mountain. Thank you for your service and excellent cuisine!

          There is no doubt that staying at the Lodge was an extravagance. We paid $825USD/night, but that does include 3 meals, all drinks (inc alcohol and minibar) a spa and immediate access to the MP gateway very first thing in the morning.
          Remember - you've come a hell of a long way and made a huge effort to get to Machu Picchu - and this place makes it something truly unforgettable!
          As a hotel its pretty good - but you're paying for the location! The alternative is to stay down in the town (which looks good, by the way). However staying in town means an extremely early walk (abt 3am) to be up at the gates when they open at 6am. The first buses don't arrive until around 7.30am.
          Staying at the Lodge means rolling out of bed at 5.30 and being first in line at 5.40. And you can then come and go to the site as you please throughout the day.
          If you can afford it - even if it means a stretch - don't think, just do!
