The suite at Terra Viva was amazing! The view from the terrace was incredible. From the moment we stepped of the train in Machu Picchu a Terra Viva rep was waiting for us, carried our luggage and we were immediately greeted by reception when arriving at the hotel. We were checked in and offered a complimentary welcome drink from their restaurant. Bed in the suite was huge and super comfortable. Hot tub was also comfortable with a view of the beautiful mountain landscape. Would definitely recommend! Thanks for a great stay in the beautiful pueblo of Machu Picchu.

We had the pleasure of staying at Tierra Viva in the middle of one of the most life changing journeys of hiking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. The room had the greatest view to the most beautiful little tropical courtyard, and I enjoyed being able to have the windows open for a bit in the daytime to enjoy the amazing view and beautiful weather. The staff was incredibly kind and ready to serve with a smile. I am grateful for such a great experience.

Slightly disappointed , the good points are we were met from the train to be taken to the hotel and at the end of the stay we were met with our luggage back at the station meaning we didn’t need to carry everything round Machu Picchu. We also enjoyed our meal at the restaurant. The not so good was that on check in we were told not to open the windows due to insects ( use plenty of insect repellent in the town and at Machu Picchu) but the air conditioning didn’t work. Judging by the fact the panel was off the electrical unit this was a known problem. They promptly offered to move us to an equivalent room but it wasn’t. The first room had a lovely king size bed with a comfy mattress,the new room had a king size bed head but only a double bed with an inferior mattress. They would have moved us again but frankly we had been on the road early for train then walked for 3 hours round Machu Picchu then had already spent time sorting out being moved and had had enough

Junior Suite, river view room. Great location, and among the top places to stay for an immersive stay in Aguas Caliente/Macchu Picchu Pueblo. Great breakfast that is included with your stay. Close to everything and a great staff that will assist you with any of your needs. They will meet you at the train station, and a porter will carry your bags to the room, a nice touch after a day of planes, trains, buses from Lima or Cusco. Can’t speak for other rooms, but the we stayed in 406 and the panoramic view of the mountains and river were great! In room frig, with complimentary drinks/water. Even laundry available for the backpackers.

The hotel was conveniently located near the train station and town. The staff was very nice and accommodating when we asked for a late checkout. Someone was waiting for us at the train station to collect us and out bags. They even helped upon or departure with our bags. The breakfast was very average - fruits, cereal, ham and cheeses, breads, and two out dishes. But the coffee was “mud.” For great coffee, visit Coffee Trotter in town. The staff was very friendly, and the place had a great vibe. Oh…and the restaurant/bar serves the BEST Pisco sour ever! Very thick and creamy!

The hotel is a great place to stay when going to Machu Picchu early the next morning, the bus literally picks you up from outside the hotel. Aguas Calientes town is pretty small so the location is pretty good for restaurants too. The rooms and breakfast are nothing special though.

We stayed one night at Tierra Viva Machu Picchu. It was a very well-located hotel which also has a restaurant. it is a 3-minute walk to the buses which take you to Machu Picchu, as well as the train which arrives in town. We had dinner at the restaurant on site and it was super delicious! Breakfast was also incredible with so many options!!

Great location, near the train and bus station, but away from the noisy part of town. Decent breakfast included. Not a lot of “extras” though. Staff was very friendly. Apparently there are showers available after you check out before you get your train, but we didn’t take advantage of this.
