The attendance was very helpful, even received an upgrade compared to the room we booked. But in the beginning of the stay requested that the payment did it and we had the sad surprise that they are not accepting credit card problem by the machine (which already had the certificate before accepting). Apart from that, everything went well.

We were on a 3-week tour of Peru and Bolivia and stayed in three hotels in the Taypikala chain. They were all, BY FAR, the best hotels of our trip. Each one was 4-5 stars by American standards. Taypikala Hotel in Agua Calientes is as close to Machu Piccu as you can get. It is located next to a beautiful... More

I stayed at the Taypikala Hotel in Aguas Calientes in December 2014, and will have to say that it is on the higher end of the cost spectrum in the Machu Picchu area, and not worth the extra cost. My group paid $179 USD for 3 people in 1 room. The hotel is located near the hot springs, which means... More

I expected a lot more from this hotel, but it disappointed me for its price and services. Staff is great but it's services are not worth it in terms of their breakfast buffet (horrible), hotel food it's horrible, Wifi connection does not work in the rooms, TVs are small, Bathroom are great, bed and room it's fine, the view it's...

We checked in here after completing the Inca Trail. We were glad we did. The rooms are spacious and pretty luxurious from what I've seen in Peru. The hotel is modern and clean. The staff members were very helpful. The touristy attractions of the town are all in easy reach of the property. All in all, it was a great... More

The staff were great. Our bags were collected at the station.just as well. I am too old to carry bags up that hill at altitude!! The bed was comfortable and there was upgrading work going on. The room was clean but dust in the wicker furniture did not help my breathing. Breakfast was excellent, with good variety and free wifi... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night. It was decent. There is an uphill walk to get to the hotel though so if you're sore from the Inca trail maybe it's not for you. It's kind of outside of the hustle and bustle of aguas which is nice. But at the same time, everything in aguas is very close.... More

My husband, son and I stayed in the Taypicala for one night before going to Machu Picchu. It was a decent hotel that was fine for one night. While it was not as nice as other hotels we stayed at in Peru, it seemed like one of the nicer hotels in its price range in Aguas Calientes. We stayed in... More

Great location, great accommodations, great service, great food! Yes, it's a hike up to the hotel but everything is in Machu Picchu. Porters brought our bags so not an issue. The views from our room were simply lovely. I'd return in a heartbeat!
