This hotel is located in a very convenient area of the small city. The people are very helpful and friendly. The place is very clean and extremely pleasant. Breakfast is average, enough to spend a few hours up in the mountain.

Not too far from square and street where the restaurants are located, about 2 blocks with some pretty steep steps. The road in front of the hotel is hard packed, but a little muddy. The room we had was very large with 2 full sized beds plus a rollaway - perfect for a family of 5. The breakfast was so-so.... More

Nice rooms in a good location. You are close to the train station, the bus stop (and office), and the town center. Rooms are a decent size, but you won't be spending much await time in them anyhow. The staff is very helpful in all things associated with the area, from how to dress for the pending weather at Machu... More

This hotel is well located near the train station and bus station. The hotel is very nice inside, rooms were comfortable. Staff was quite helpful with restaurant recommendations and Macchu Picchu advice. Early breakfast (4:30 am!) is helpful to get an early start on your Macchu Picchu ascent!

This is the perfect hotel to check into after 4 days on the Inca Trail. The beds are soft, the pillow are downy, the showers have lots of hot water delivered at high pressure. The breakfast buffet is big and so tasty. The cooked-to-order eggs and cinnamon buns were perfect for satisfying even my sons' enormous post-hike appetites. We found... More

We were so appreciate of the wonderful service and nice facilities at the Tierra Viva Machu Picchu. We were met at the train station (notified them ahead of time during online booking) and our luggage was carried by cart down to the hotel. This was not a trivial thing and the return to the train the next day was the... More

We stayed here for one night to be able to experience a two day visit to Machu Picchu since it is such an expensive trip we wanted to enjoy more than one day. The service of this hotel is great, they even offered to meet us on the train station with our luggage before our train departed. They even accommodate... More

In general a very good experience in Machu Picchu. Hotels here can go for high prices and we believe this hotel hits the right mix of value for the money. The rooms in the hotel are nice and have all the necessary amenities. The breakfast included with the room was actually very good. A full breakfast with many options available.... More
