Unfortunately, in Aguas Calientes, your choice is either expensive luxury or cheap roughing it. Terraz del Inca is the latter, and you do indeed get what you pay for in the low price--a barebones, but passable accommodation. Look for no frills as you are only provided a towel and a bar of soap. The entire room was damp (and items left in the room became damp), thus plenty of mildew. While there was thankfully hot water in the shower, it was full of mildew and there was no soap holder. The room was not very clean, but you can survive a night there. The TV only has three local Spanish channels, but the free wireless worked fine. I liked the white noise the river provided, it help me attempt to sleep in the uncomfortable, hard bed with very thin pillow. The inn will also let you leave luggage for free and use their common area when you come back from Machu Picchu. While the visit definitely wasn't comfortable, you don't go to Aguas Calientes to enjoy a hotel, thus it served its purpose for the one night stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the bank of the little river that runs through the village of Aguas Calientes, most of the rooms have a beautiful view over the river, and each room is very well equipped. There are outdoor terraces where you can read a book and drink a cup of coffee while enjoying the great view. Breakfast is served very early. At the moment you check in, you will receive lots of information about Machu Picchu and the surrounding area. There is herbal tea constantly available, which you will be able to enjoy free of charge throughout your stay. There is a small restaurant where you can order up food and drink. If you walk for 5 minutes up the hill, you will arrive at the entry gate of the hot springs. The train station and the bus stop is just a 5 minute walk down the hill. The Machu Picchu Archeological Complex is a 30 minute bus ride up from Aguas Calientes. If you choose to walk up to the ruins, it will take you about an hour and 40 minutes. There are nearby sites such as the Mandor Garden where you can commune with nature in all her glory. The Garden is a 40 minute walk. The beginning of the hiking trail up Mt. Putucusi is a 10 minute walk away. If you hike up that trail for an hour and reach the peak, you can look across at Machu Picchu. The people who work at Terrazas del Inca are very warm, friendly, and happy to be of service. For all these reasons, come visit Aguas Calientes, and enjoy a wonderful experience in Peru. ... more less
