      Is this the best hotel we ever stayed in ? Beautiful setting. Great staff. Lots of steps to climb, but this is the Peruvian Andes. Recommended

      This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. It is an Eco Lodge and is set in beautiful natural surroundings. We had a room overlooking the Urubamba river. The room was spacious with a lounge area, a large bathroom and a huge king sized bed. We had complimentary Pisco in the room as well as the offer to light our fire if needed. Staff were friendly and attentive and we had an excellent meal in Cafe Inkaterra at night. Wonderful experience!

      The welcome, room, food and facilities are excellent. This is a relaxing and beautiful resort. The rooms are spacious and scattered in the grounds. The little bars and places to sit by a roaring fire and relax are all very tastefully decorated with homour and local flavour. Excellent service.

      Very unexpected. Hotel situated in valley below Machu Picchu, next to railway line, but only a few trains a day turn around at this point returning to Cusco. Tropical gardens with many humming birds encouraged by the hanging honey feeders. Room was clean and comfortable with our own patio area. Restaurant was very good. Hotel organises nature walks around the grounds passing Prehistoric Cave paintings. They also grow and process their own tea.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel Aguas Calientes

      Tropical Relaxation


      We recently stayed at the El Pueblo hotel and loved it. It is situated in a nearly town of the Machu Picchu ruins, nestled quietly on a hillside among many tropical plants and trees. It feels like a tropical paradise and your room is grouped in small clusters of individual buildings. The rooms and lounge areas are updated, casual and extremely comfortable.

      The hotel offers great spa services, fireplace cozy lounge area and a terrific restaurant. The personnel were courteous and overall service great. We wanted to stay longer.

      The hotel is located 20 minutes from the cliffs of Machu Picchu but the town offers transportation to the historic site and the trip is no problem at all. Some of the reviews are people suggesting the Sanctuary Hotel atop the ruin hills to avoid the drive but we would pick The Pueblo Hotel over this property any day.

      A haven


      Agua Caliente, the so called town below Machu Picchu is at best a primitive madcap place, you need the Pueblo Hotel to retreat to and regroup your senses! It is lovely.

      The whole ethos of the hotel is of sustainability and eco responsibility. The rooms are located in small pavillions some single, some two storeys, amongst lovely orchid gardens (guided tours available), footpaths and rockeries and are furnished with locally made furniture and fabrics. They have stone floors and real fires and window seats that are perfect for relaxing on after exploring Machu Picchu! The bathrooms are lovely too with massive shower roses that drench. The toiletries are all handmade and from local ingredients. The lounge, reception and restaurant and bar are all in seperate pavillions that reflect local architecture and the eco friendly approach. There is even a library full of books on local art, history, flora and fauna.

      The food was very good (massive and varied buffet breakfast, a perfect start to a busy, busy day and an interesting dinner menu). The restuarant over looks the Urubamba River, most impressive. I think you would either need a cast iron stomach or a death wish to venture into the town to eat!

      The grounds are also full of hummingbirds, attracted by the feeders of sugarwater placed around the gardens - another facinating bonus to the place.

      Some guide books say that the hotel is a little inconveniently located in relation to the town and the buses upto the ruins. This is nonsense, a five minute walk never hurt anyone and the location is a sanctuary away from dreadful Agua Caliente!

      The only fly in the ointement was that the water heater for our room was not working but it was fixed within minutes of reporting it. If you cannot afford the Sancutary at the gates of the ruins - this is the next best thing.

      Nature at its best


      I had the opportunity to se nature at its best, machu picchu pueblo hotel's gardens, butterfly, orchids and hummingbirds gave one of the most beautifull experience of my life

      Agree - too far away from the ruins


      I agree with the previous reviewer - this hotel is too far away from the ruins. Also I found the staff to be pretty unfriendly and although the breakfast was OK the lunch was terrible - we were served re-heated pasta whilst the waiters were having their own chit chat on the balcony!

      I stayed at the Sanctuary for 1 night and 1 night at this hotel and the Sanctuary was superb - we entered the ruins from the Sanctuary at 5.30am so we were all alone for 1 hour and watched the sun come up before the hordes arrived on the bus - bliss!

      If you are not doing the Inca trail then stay at the Sanctuary....



      We spent one night on our guided trip to Peru last June. I can only say that if I get the chance to return I will want to stay there longer. It

      is like staying in a mountain paradise. Steps away from the train station and the town market. Don't miss this one!

      Good choice in Aguas Calientes


      Clean, fairly modern, pleasant. Nice bathroom. Central. Quiet. Inca bar accross road good 4 drink and a munch.

      The Best Place to Stay in Machu Picchu


      I have been in Machu Picchu 3 times in and I can say Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel - INKATERRA is the best place to stay and enjoy the National Park of Machu Picchu.

      It is located 30 minutes from the ruins but still can get the sunrise.

      Too far away from the ruins


      What many people need to understand is that this property is a 30 minute bus ride away from the ruins. Although it is a lovely place with bungalow type dwellings situated along wooded paths, it is not convenient unless you WANT to spend time discovering the town of Aguas Calientes. You have to be careful to leave the ruins with the last bus ( I believe it was 5:30pm) and the first bus arrives just after sunrise.

      (btw: don't bother with the hot pool in town is situated at the top of the hill and is a small open air swimming pool the size of those at the Quality Inn chains.)

      The rooms are stucco with tile flooring and a high wood beamed ceiling. The two queen sized beds were softer than we like but the room was clean. The bath area ( toilet in a closet to the right and an open shower to the left) was clean but very basic. Hot water was in short supply.

      the included breakfast buffet was extensive and well done; served in a glass surrounded room that looks over the river and towards town.

      One thing I would be careful about is that I would insist on booking a room away from the lower area which is quite close to the train tracks. There are late trains that rumble though and we could hear them up the hill.

      It just seems to me that if you are going to spend this kind of money, it would be better for you to take the plunge and stay at the Machu Pichu Sanctuary lodge( the one up at the ruins) if it is only for one night.

      We stayed one night at the Sanctuary which allowed more private and quiet time at the ruins and another night at the Pueblo to explore town.

      Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel


      I spent two nights at this wonderful hotel in July 2003 and loved it. The rooms are large and comfortable and beautifully decorated in native style, and set in individual casitas in lush gardens. It is a bit pricey for Peru but well worth it. There is an excellent restaurant with wonderful service and a spa for unwinding after a day of hiking at MP.

      The buses to the ruins are just a short walk away. Highly recommended. I'd go back there anytime.

      Top 10 in my Life


      We stayed at the Machu Picchu Pueblo about a year ago. When you arrive at the train station the service begins. Porters take your bags and you follow. It's about a 10 minute walk uphill and stair walk to reception. Staff very efficient.

      We reserved a junior suite. More stone stairs but the end of the rainbow. Large, firm twin beds, fireplace,extra large bath with a glassed shower, and back porch to enjoy the local flora and fauna.

      Full breakfast included, however for Machuu Picchu lunch buffet tasty but too pricey. Go into town for lunch and dinner, Toto's is our fav.

      Staff is always efficient. Called one night because we could not get the fireplace started. Literally two minutes later, a employee had the fire roaring.

      When leaving, have a great breakfast overlooking the Rio, leave you bags behind, enjoy the day, the staff at the Pueblo will be at the train station waiting for you with bottled water, luggage and wet towels in hand for your trip back to Cusco.
