Casa de Luz / La Pequena Casita Hotel
Travel Blogs from Aguas Calientes
Getting up at 3am after only a few hours of not so great sleep at La Pequena Casita (not a great place, but not bad either) was half exciting half awful.... I stayed in bed for a few minutes while mike went down to wait in line for the first bus to Machu Picchu. The first bus doesn't actually leave until 6, but if you're not on it, you'll miss the …

How has this hotel rated in the past?
