"paulyduckduck" below offers some excellent advice - he had obviously planned meticulously and I attempted the same for what was a major major anniversary for my wife and I. I had attempted a similar pilgrimage 15 years ago but an agent then booked us into the Hotel Ruinas Machu Picchu in Cusco without understanding that is not what I had... More

We enjoyed 2 perfectly luxurious nights here, just mere steps away from the park entrance. Total pampering is the way to describe the experience. "How can we help you?", "What can we do to make your day better?, "Please let us know if we can do ANYTHING for you." is just what we heard all day long and everywhere. We... More

Firstly I have to say that anyone who is staying here and not going to re-visit Machu Picchu should reconsider immediately. You are paying a premium to stay here because of a very major historical site on your doorstep. Yes it is expensive, but it is all inclusive, so wine and beer on tap as is all the other facilities,... More

The only hotel on Machu Picchu that is 500+ feet from the entrance to the park and has only 30 rooms. The buses start to arrive at the park at 6:00 am which opens at 6:30 am and closes at 5:00 pm and the buses will transport the visitors off the mountain until all have left. The hotel is a... More

Very expensive---but if you can get it into your budget it will make all the difference in your visit to Machu Picchu. Instead of going up and back twice in the bus, at the end of the day you can collapse in your room, have a great dinner and unlimited free drinks [check if that is true when you visit!]... More

The only hotel up at Machu Picchu does not disappoint. Because the hotel door is located 30 seconds away from the entrance to Machu Picchu, the location alone would be enough to make our stay memorable. When the crowds have dwindled at Machu Picchu in mid afternoon, the hotel clients have the run of the amazing Machu Picchu site and... More

We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite. I wouldn't call it that, it was a nice room with a king bed and place to sit. It had a large outdoor seating area but it certainly wasn't Presidential. However the service was beyond wonderful. The food was great and the bar of course was perfect. All our meals were included and... More

Was expensive, but worth the price. Stayed here for two nights. The customer service was top notch and the employees were all friendly. The best part was exploring the park in the morning before the first bus arrived and in the evening after the last bus departed.

I booked one night here based on what turned out to be really erroneous assumptions: a) the hotel was the deluxe 5 star retreat depicted in its website b) spending the night would allow one access to the ruins hours before the first buses arrived from the town below of Aguascalientes ( Machu Picchu Pueblo). With regard to the first,... More

Visited in November 2011. As the only hotel up by the Machu Pichu, the hotel is very expensive, rooms are small. If you do not want to see the sunrise at Machu Pichu I dont think it is worth to stay here. There are small hotels in the small town where the train arrives at..
