We stayed at Inkaterra during a 2-day trip to Machu Picchu, and it was the perfect place to relax in after a long hiking day. The rooms nestled in the cloud forest with high trees are super nice, large and confortable, making you feel at home. The hotel is within walking distance from the train and bus stations, which makes it very practical. The service was excellent. Not to forget the lovely wake up knock knock of the candies man 😊. A lovely hotel we highly recommend!

This was an eco friendly hotel. All bathroom accessories were either reusable or eco friendly. The rubber sandals given, I think made out of tyres , were the most uncomfortable I have ever walked in, but a nice touch. Breakfast was good but dinner was limited , as we were vegetarians, and food only average. Staff great, helpful and chatty.

This hotel was a gem. Such a cool surprise at the end of our walk to get there. Felt like sleeping in the jungle. Hot tubs were complimentary. The turn down service included warm water bottles filled and tuck in the bed. This was welcomed after a long day of hiking the Inca trail. Dinner and drinks were great at the main restaurant. Breakfast was good too.

Fantastically located within a short walk of the town and buses taking you up to MP. The hotel was like a collection of Spanish style buildings set in a tropical jungle. Each unit was well equipped with a fab king size bed and large plate windows but no tea or coffee facilities. The room had a heater which we needed...dont let the tropical feel fool you, it was cold even in late April. Dinner was included and it was a super 3 course meal which was served by a very friendly waiter! Wine was not too expensive either. Breakfast had a massive choice and cooked to order, and again was delicious. The hotel itself had fantastic hummingbirds everywhere, encouraged by all the feeders which were around the grounds. The birds were colourful and plentiful and, for me, another real high spot! There was also an orchid garden so allow plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful grounds. It was raining when we were there but we still wished we had stayed an extra night. MP itself is absolutely stunning! Really loved this hotel.

Want to stay in a fabulous hotel in Machu Picchu? Then this is it. A short walk from the train station the grounds are immaculate and the architecture beautiful. Check in was easy and the staff attentive but not overbearing. The rooms? Awesome. Large, great views, plenty of "extras" and the bathroom again, fabulous. Nothing is left undone. So far of our travels in Peru I slept the best here. We actually wanted to cancel the rest of our trip and just stay at this hotel. But this place fills up so make reservations early and don't expect to be able to change due to the high demand. I promise, you won't be disappointed.

Due to the rearrangement needed from the farmers strike we stayed a second night here rather than at the Hacienda Urubamba, which allowed us to get to MachuPicchu. It was a slightly difficult hotel to review, in part because it is a much larger hotel, and perhaps more importantly, came after one of our favourites, which coloured opinions. The room was OK, but a bit damp, but this got a bit better when we left the rather noisy dehumidifier running. The site is fairly heavily wooded, great for wildlife and bird spotting, but this resulted in the rooms being quite dark, and our neighbours, both sides, behind and above were all a bit noisy at times. Breakfast buffet was OK without being exceptional in any area, and the one evening meal we ate in the main restaurant was fine. Our issue with the food was on the last day, when we wanted a light meal before we moved on, so made our way to the Inkaterra Cafe, expecting to be able to get lunch. Oh no, it is a cafe in name only, the same white tablecloths and full menu as the main restaurant in the hotel (which was not doing lunches) but required a reservation, which we had not made, so hungry was I. The hotel had provided a good base to get to MachuPicchu for our tour, which was brilliant, allowed us to see the “kiss me quick” tourista town which has grown up to support visitors to the ruins and had potentially beautiful gardens with lots of birdwatching but it did not match the standards of the Inkaterra’s at either Urubamba or Cuzco.

This property is literally in the rain forest. Not surprisingly, its built on a hillside, consisting of a number of small, separate buildings housing rooms, public spaces, dining, gift shop, library, spa, etc.The view from our room was very cool ! There are some steps as part of the walkways between the buildings. Part of the mission of the property is environmental conservation, which is evident in how the property is run. For example, we saw no plastic used for anything. Everything is reusable or made from natural materials. The dining, gift shop, service, amenities, and grounds were all wonderful ! Just sitting and watching the wild birds was thrilling ! So many types of humming birds at the feeders. The parrots are very vocal in the morning.

This hotel is like a vacation within a vacation. The first thing to know about this place is that it's beautiful. You won't find a more lovely location in Aguas Calientes, and that's saying something. Other perks? The staff is very friendly, and the restaurant is top-notch. You should also know that, unlike every other hotel in AC, it's on the "locals" side of the river. Instead of the tacky tourist trap where all the other hotels are located, this is close to the rather nice community where people actually live. I'm afraid most people who stay in Aguas Calientes never venture this way, which is a terrible shame. The football field in particular is a great social and entertainment hub. So, even if you don't stay here, be sure to head in this direction, or have dinner at their restaurant. It's closer to the train station than most (about a five minute walk,) but you won't be following the crowds when you exit. So you'll want to arrange for a guide to pick you up, or know where you're going before you get on the train. The down side of the location, of course, is that you will hear the trains. They are very close--in fact, the restaurant is right between the tracks.

Wonderful setting, views are stunning, make the most of it from the lobby/ stylish and comfortable public area. Miles from civilisation, so be prepared to eat/drink in hotel - which is expensive compared to bars/restaurants in towns. Hot water bottles provided at night which was a nice touch - it gets very cold! Disappointed by breakfast choice, it was rather sparse. Quality selection of toiletries supplied in bathroom. Offers free tours for birdwatching, stargazing etc. Found staff to be rather aloof - think they’re used to American guests who stay in cabins up the hill. With a bit of effort on our part, they engaged more.

This hotel is different. Full of green, feels like you are in a rainforest. The room was spacious and cozy which includes a fireplace. The food of the restaurant was very good. The service was exceptional. I loved to see the birds in their environment. The staff set areas with food so you can see them. Location was great.
