Lets start off with the one of two negatives, the LOOOOONG path/stairwell up to Rupa is not so bad, but was under construction when we arrived, that was a pain in the tush. They had someone meet us and escort us to Rupa, which was very kind and made it that much better for me. The second one is the... More

We were looking forward to this hotel! It was our one splurge on the trip - most places we stayed were in the $50-$75 range. It did not meet our expectations. Both days we were there the water was turned off for periods of time. The first day we were informed about this and thought it was just a little... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we booked two nights at Rupa Wasi Lodge and could not have been more pleased. The staff is extremely helpful and Saida met every need we had with a smile and a giggle. She continually went above and beyond to make our stay everything we had hoped. She even showed us the trick... More

This very small hotel near Machu Picchu was not fancy but very clean and comfortable. It had a rustic charm appropriate for the area and had a great restaurant associated with it. The front desk receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly and spoke English very well. The bed and pillow was the best we had in Peru. Although there was... More

Rupa Wasi is a beautiful and original hotel with stunning views. The staff was incredibly friendly, rooms were very clean, and there was plenty of hot water. AND it also has the best restaurant in Aguas Calientes. Their lunch boxes for the Machu Picchu hike were delicious and very convenient. I would stay here again!

Rupa Wasi was a dream come true: clean, quiet, and pleasantly secluded. The friendly and patient staff went out of their way to help me (even solving some minor travel/ticket snafus) and escorted me from the train station to my room. Upon arriving in the tree-cloaked lobby, you can sip coca leaf tea in a lovely, sunny room. The Treehouse... More

We found Rupa Wasi in a guide book, then looked on TripAdvisor and was blown away by the reviews. This little place only has a handful of rooms and a restaurant. Rupa Wasi is considered sustainable lodging because of their commitment to environmental responsibility: they compost, recycle, and encourage minimal water & electrical use. Additionally, they have gone through great... More

Aguas Calientes is a weird place where you feel that everyone has their hand stretched out for your money -- a real tourist trap, and you ARE trapped because there's nowhere else to stay when going to Machu Picchu. Having said that, Rupa Wasi is an oasis. If you can afford it -- and this is a very REASONABLE hotel... More

First, let me tell you that in general quality of hotels in Aguas Calientes is very poor unless you are willing to pay more than US300 per night! That being said, Rupa Wasi is a gem compared to the rest. Maybe this hotel would receive a very poor review in a more competitive environment... My wife and I got the... More

Aguas Calientes is a tourist town, and there's no getting around that. But in our room at Rupa Wasi we could completely forget the bustle and commerce all around and truly relax and feel at home. The staff went above and beyond to be helpful and make us comfortable, upgrading us to a larger room with a better view free... More
