Reviews for Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel
While as a location and setting this hotel was beautiful, I felt that there was not really the type of personalised experience that was available in a lot of the Peruvian luxury hotels. Rooms were good and comfortable and dining experience was reasonable. I would say it was an overall fair experience.
This is a lovely, tucked-away resort in the midst of a touristy town. While the town is overrun with t-shirt and other tourist stores (many tacky) and packed with tourists, the Inkaterra is a quiet getaway with individual cottages that include fireplaces, refrigerators and all with private baths-- all in the midst of beautiful natural gardens and greenery. Also has a great restaurant and bar. Great quiet spot with easy access to bus ride (or trail) to Machu Picchu. We debated between this hotel and the one at the top at the entrance to Machu Picchu. We toured that hotel once at the gate of Machu Picchu and were convinced we made the right choice. The only advantage in staying at the top is being able to miss the bus ride and the very slight chance of being able to catch the sunrise (it's usually cloudy.) The bus ride from the Inkaterra to the mountain isn't bad but either get up early and beat the crowds to the line, or go in the afternoon when there are much fewer people. We got to MP early and I had a tough time taking photos without gobs of people in them. However, by 3 pm, Machu Picchu looked empty by comparison and I was able to shoot many photos without people. Many visitors come to the site via the morning train and then leave to catch the train back.
We thoroughly enjoyed ours tay at the inkaterra. The room was impeccable, the staff kind, the food delicious and the grounds beautiful - a wonderful garden full of orchids, butterflies and hummingbirds along the river. Highly recommend!

This is the best hotel in Aguas Calientes. Stayed for 2 nights. Quality hotel with great rooms. Dinner and breakfast were included in our booking, which was great. The staff as expected were fantastic. Didn't spend much time at the hotel, as were up the mountain during the day. But there are Nature Walks, the Orchid Trail, massage and spa facilities, so if you are more for a relaxing stay they have you covered. Only downside, which is part of the charm is the number of steps in the grounds of the hotel. There are a lot and at night the lighting is not that good, so take it easy. Otherwise highly recommended - treat yourself.

Spent two nights here for our visit to Machu Picchu. The village of Aguas Calientes is quite small and compact and this resort sits at one end of the village. You are steps from the train, a short walk to where you get the public buses to Machu Picchu and just steps from the village, which is mainly restaurants, and souvenir shops. The resort spans several acres of cloud forest and the rooms are cottages spread over the property. There are several dining rooms, a main lobby, a spa and an eco center where you can book bird watching tours or garden/nature tours of the property. Rooms have fire places with starter and wood supplied, expansive bathrooms with shower only, patio or balcony off rooms, nice large sitting areas and beds. This is luxury at Machu Picchu.
