Centrally located up many stairs on the Hill but most of the Hotels are. Clean, small and comfortable. A good place to stay if you want to be close to Macchu. Children play until late at night so noise can be in the air. Small Dining room. Buffet Breakfast.

Our room was simple but clean we were happy about it. Breakfast was also very simple but ok. The employees were very friendly if we got to see them. They did not pick us up at the trainstation, we had to call for them and the reception desk was often empty.

I stayed here for one night. They were very friendly, and I had a great stay. Internet was fast, although shut off in the middle of the night. My room was on the fourth floor, and with no elevator, that was a long way up there after climbing Machu Picchu all day. Room was perfectly fine, although I wish they... More

The Imperio Hotel was an unexpected surprise. We had to be separated from our group and we were sent from the Flowers Hotel up to see Gisela at the Imperio. We could not have been made to feel more welcome. Our room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Even the towels were made into a dog with a lovely flower... More

On first appearance it looks fine, but then you go up to the rooms and the corridors and stairs, make you doubt the choice. The room is quite small, tight in fact, furnishings are not really that, there's a storage unit of some sort, where you can place say a back pack, maybe a second one as well, maybe your... More

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
