Our G adventures tour stopped here for the night before heading up to Machu Picchu the next morning. Room was large on the corner of the building and the bathroom and room were nice and clean. Unfortunately being on the corner we had 2 nightclubs competing with each other outside our room. We were able to get to sleep so... More

Like many others, we stayed at the hotel prior to our visit to Machu Picchu. As mentioned by others, you have to hike uphill to get to the hotel, and again if you walk to the town square or some of the restaurants/bars in the area, The room was fine, spacious, and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We... More

Our family was overall very disappointed with our stay at this hotel. The rooms are highly variable in quality, there were flying bugs in the rooms, the rooms were marginally clean, the elevator was broken, the breakfast was awful. My father has stayed in much cheaper hotels in Aguas Calientes offering better experiences. The only saving grace was that the... More

This is an average hotel, with great staff. Free baggage transfer to/from the train station. Free breakfast, and free WiFi. WiFi was VERY spotty though. It's at the top of a hill, so it's a bit of a hike to reach the top. Plenty of hot water, and the beds were of average comfort. If I had to visit the... More

Spent a very relaxing night here before our visit to Machupiccu. Great rooms that look toward the town of Aguas Calientes. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, and an overall nice atmosphere made for a nice stay. Lots of places to eat or have a coffee just steps away. This hotel is a bit of s walk up a hill from the...

Our assessment is that it is the hotel met 3-stars easily, because of its centric location. We feel the 4-star rating was achieved because of the closeness to the central plaza, WiFi, Refrigerator, and Safe. Breakfast was included, which was a... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in Taypikala hotel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. We booked a suite which was really special, it was spacious and even had a hot tub in the room. This hotel is the perfect choice when visiting Machu picchu, especially if you have done... More

This hotel was clean, comfortable, had delicious food, tea/coffee available all day, and great Pisco sours waiting for us when we checked in. I would recommend it to friends and family. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

I did not have great expectation for hotels in Aguas Calientes based on all that I had read, but this was a really good hotel with great views. we were met at the station and escorted up the long hill to the hotel which overlooks a small square and the river. Great view from our room. The room was large,... More

I think we have to realise this town is just a holding area for people visiting MP, and the hotels have no reason to improve/update, as people will always stay here. So based on that, this hotel isn't that bad, as it was generally comfortable, and we were only staying one night. Collected from the train station as promised buy... More
