We spent the night here after 4 days hiking and 3 nights camping into Machi Picchu. Any hotel would have seemed good, but the Sanctuary Lodge was just divine. From the moment we walked in the door they took such good care of us! From Marcos who checked us in to Julio who taught us all about pisco (and who... More

The Sanctuary Lodge gets an "A". Certainly not cheap, but the accommodations, while not overly spacious, are very adequate and spotlessly clean. The food is terrific. Proximity to the Park is unbeatable. But,the best thing is the service. Juliana, Frank, Lais, Gisela, Alex, Marcello, Henrri, Alexander-they will all treat you like royalty. We have never met nicer folks. Try to... More

The hotel has unique location and very good common facilities (restaurant, restrooms, etc.). However, the guest rooms are not up to the same level. It appears that they had not been updated for a very long time. While satisfactory, the image this hotel projects and prices being charged would call for an improvement.

we were in a presidential suite and it was spacious and comfortable. We have enjoyed the peaceful garden, and loved to watch the hummingbirds. The outdoor hot tub is overlooking some part of Mach Picchu. Of course we've enjoyed the proximity to Mach Picchu too. The staff was very attentative and the food delicious. The hotel offered (at no extra... More

Situated right at the park entrance, the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel in this wonderful location. To be able to enter the park at 6 am before the hoards of day trippers arrive, or to enjoy the ambience of the Machu Picchu in the quiet of the late afternoon, is worth the expense. The rooms were of a... More

Our stay at this hotel was organized by National Geographic Peru: Land of the Inca Tour., and it was the best choice possible. The rooms were much better than I expected after having read some reviews, and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. Everything was included, so I didn't have to worry about any expenses, including tips and alcohol. It... More

This is a spruced up but otherwise very ordinary 1960's era motel that happens to be just a few feet from the entry to Machu Picchu - the only hotel there. Everybody else who stays overnight has to take a bumpy 25 minute bus ride down to Aguas Calientes and will have problems staying late at Machu Picchu or getting... More

My friend and I had a memorable time staying at the Sanctuary Lodge during our 2 days 1 night trip in late Sep 14. We had a room with a patio. The room though small was comfortable, and the welcome fruit basket and variety of drinks and snacks in the minibar were welcome surprises! The Lodge location is excellent! We... More

a well organised and comfortable lodge at the gate to Machu Picchu, what more could you ask? They have this just right. Very comfortable rooms, good food and smiling attentive staff. On top of this, there is afternoon tea, a comprehensive buffet just like breakfast, pisco sour demonstrations and a 2 minute walk to the entrance .

This hotel is not glamorous. In some senses, it's a fancy motel. But it's right at the entry to Machu Picchu, which is priceless, and the staff are fantastic. The food at the restaurant is also good, and the grounds are nicely maintained, with a hot tub, orchid garden and a 'day room' structure that you can use to freshen... More
