This hotel was just what our tour group needed after a day climbing around Machu Picchu. We were warned ahead of time that some of our accommodations might be noisy and that bringing ear plugs would be in order. The night we stayed, there was a festival going on in the soccer field almost next door and the ear plugs... More

The Imperio Machupicchu Hotel is functional and very small. There is no elevator and is primarily designed for one night stays in which the guest is exhausted from climbing Machu Picchu, so there is no need for frills. It is located in the village square and there are many places to eat or shop. The rooms are small, but very... More

This hotel is cute and quaint and charming and one of my favorites. It is small and very clean. Located on a hill (as is almost everything in Aqua Calientes) and it has no elevator. Breakfast was included and good. The shower was hot. No hairdryer. The staff was friendly and helpful.

If you manage to get to Machu Picchu and Aguas Calientes avoid this hotel at all costs. This has to be one of the worst around. The outside noise is deafening as is the noise inside the hotel. So if you are spending the night, as most people are, to get up early the next morning to experience Machu Picchu,... More

The window didn't close, it was really noisy outside. We could have as well slept outside.. The room was tiny. We couldn't eat anything over breakfast. Wifi didn't work in the rooms. The service was average, nothing special. Wouldn't really recommend, there are plenty of hotels in Aguas Calientes

I had no issues with the hotel at all. Accommodations were good for Peru. This was not a 5 star hotel, but very CLEAN, comfortable, had good hot water pressure and decent beds. Staff was very friendly and always available. Very likely could have negotiated a lower price had we not booked through a travel agency.

This hotel is comfortable and clean. Good location next to the railway station and town. Breakfast has limited options, but to be fair, they will provide fruit if you ask for it! Staff are very accommodating, wi-fi only works in the foyer, they are happy to store your luggage after checkout if you are visiting local attractions.

I had no problems in one night at this hotel, unlike some other reviewers. I found a very clean room an pleasant bed. Indeed the location is indeed noisy, breakfast is poor and the hotel does not offer anything special. However, once my goal was just having a room to sleep a night in my expedition to Machu Picchu (and... More

By far one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in, and I am not a snob about hotels. The first room I had the door lock did not work and I was locked out of my room. The second room I had was on an upper floor so not as noisy but the bathroom smelled like urine, there... More

This place was booked by our tour operator during a 2 day hike/visit to MP. First problem is that the walls are the thinnest I've ever seen. Many people mentioned this in the reviews, but it is REALLY bad. For some reason, the window to outside has a big sliding door, but there is no balcony, so it serves no... More
