An employee meets you at the train station and guides you to the hotel which is a 5 minute walk. The lobby and lounge are comfortable and decorated to match the local culture.... More

This year we decided to stay at Tierra Viva’s new hotel in Aguas Calientes ( only a 15 minute bus ride to Machu Picchu). Since we had great experience at Tierra Viva in Lima and in Cuzco, we knew we would not be disappointed. Like their other hotels, their newest hotel is immaculate, beautiful, and has so much character. The... More

We stayed here for one night before our day at Machu Picchu. We took overnight backpacks on the train from Ollantaytambo and really didn't want to lug them all over the mountain, so we emailed the hotel ahead of time to see if we could leave our luggage with them for the day and received a prompt email back from...

We arrived at the station at Aguas Acaliente to be met by a member of staff, who carried our bags and guided us to the hotel which was just 5 minutes walk away. The staff were very friendly and attentive. It is a new hotel and our room had a lovely view over the river. It was immaculately clean. Breakfast... More

Excellent service in time of crisis! The staff spoke very good English and were extremely helpful in recommending great restaurants for dinner. Bathroom was a bit tired but good location and view to the mountains. Breakfast was a good start to the day. Luggage collected at train station allowing us to go straight up to Machu Picchu.
