I had to Walk uphill

I liked La Cabana hotel, it was clean and neat but I had to walk (and it was long) uphill from station, which was very difficult with luggage. I don't know why nobody warned me earlier!

  • Staying at hotels

If you are on a tight schedule you can go to Machu Picchu from Cusco on a day trip. So you can easily come back to Cusco from Machu Picchu on the same day. Hence it is not necessary to stay at any hotel at Machu Picchu.  But if you are with family it is better to stay at least a night in Machu Picchu.

But if you decide to stay Machu Picchu an extra one night you may get the opportunity to see the sunrise at Machu Picchu. Also there is another thing to mention here. Lots of people like to climb up Huayna Picchu. But each day at most 400 people can climb up (a restriction from Peruvian Government, to save the Sanctuary), and if you do not put your name on the list early, you may not get the chance to climb. So you need to go there early to take the chance. So spending a night there may not be a bad idea. But again to remind you, you can easily have your Machu Picchu experience without staying there. Decision is yours.

  • Hotels at the ruins

At Machu Picchu ( which is actually Inca ruin, not a town now)  there is only one hotel, Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, which is just 150 feet from the ruins entrance gate. Other than this one  all other hotels are situated at Aguas Calientes town (few miles from the ruins). Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge is a deluxe hotel, 5 star (that's what they claim), and naturally very very expensive. Rooms start there from $ 700.00. If your pocket is not that deep, you can stay at one of the hotels at  Aguas Calientes.

  • Hotels at Aguas Calientes

You will find plenty of hotels at Machu Picchu. If you want luxury you can stay at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Hotel (Former Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel). Here single rooms starts from $350.00 a night. Environment of this hotel is breathtaking, you will see gardens and tree all around in this hotel. If you are not interested in deluxe hotels, you can stay hotels like Hostal Continental or Hostal Machu Picchu, which are as cheap as $ 20.00 a night. or  Hostal Wiracocha Inn, Rupa Wasi Eco Lodge, Hostal Presidente which are $50.00 a night.


For backpackers there are some hotels as cheap as $ 6.00. Hostal John, Hostal El Inka, or Hospedaje El Tambo have rooms under $ 10.00.

I am giving a list of Hotels below. If it says hostal, it means it does not have a restaurant. One more thing, room rates usually include 19% Tax, which is for Peruvian only. If you are not a Peruvian show them your Passport, and give them its copy to exempt yourself.

All hotels other than Machu Picchu Sanctuary lodge are in Aguas Calientes..

Telephone: 51 84 211122




Rooms starting from $450.00. It is a four star hotel. The best, hence expensive hotel in Aguas Calientes.  They have internet connection and Cable TV and telephone at each room, and more importantly they have a very big orchid garden surrounding the hotel. You can have nature walk (bird, bear, and other animal). This hotel is my favorite.   Staffs are very helpful. You can get a guide to Machu Picchu ruin from them. When you book, you may make arrangement for guide for Machu Picchu at room price. Also they will pick you from the stations. Bad thing is that you have to book early to get a room here, and pay in advance. For more >>

Phone: 0051 84 241 777 (Reservations at Monasterio Hotel, Cusco)



Only hotel at Machu Picchu. It is situated just at the entrance point of Machu Picchu ruins. It maintains  very high standard. Hence very expensive. The best thing of this hotel is that if you are interested to go to Huayna Picchu, you can get into Machu Picchu ruins very early from here easily. But bad thing is that , most visitors find it is over priced.
