Reviews for Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel
This was the last hotel in our 3 week exploration of Peru. It is nice. Vast secluded property - separated from town. Clusters of rooms in casitas - some with fireplaces. Lobby with bar and restaurant was comfortable. The food was good but not great. The service was good but not great. The property is about 25 years old and looks it - we stayed at the Inkaterra Hacienda in Urubamba immediately before this - this is no where near that class of hotel. The tours are interesting - they are trying to save the andean bear, so you can visit the pen area. Extraordinary gift shop with great staff.

We arrived at this hotel after a terrible time at their sister resort in Urumbamba and the Vistadome train so were not in the best frame of mind. From the start the staff were perfect even taking details of our troubles to pass on to management. Our room was a cottage in the gardens and beautifully presented. It was not large but equipped with an open fire, well stocked with wood and fire starter. This was just lovely, sitting in front of the fire, a glass of wine in our hands and the candles (supplied in the room) burning. I think for atmosphere this hotel wins over everywhere else we stayed. We had dinner in the restaurant which was excellent, with local and western dishes and the wait staff were friendly and helpful with the menu (I had guinea pig again). A stroll back through the gardens in the rain to our room, candlelight and a blazing fire. - bliss. Next morning after breakfast we did a tour of the gardens provided by the hotel before catching the train. This was surely the best hotel of our stay in Peru and we only wish it had been longer to enable us to make use of the Spa and pools. Congratulations to the Management - you have got it it right

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in April 2017 while visiting Machu Picchu. The hotel is in Aguas Calientes, which is the closest town to the site. We stayed here before doubling back to Cusco--turned out to be a great way to slowly acclimate to the altitude. It is about 7000ft (2000m). There aren't any cars in town. You can easily walk everywhere--train station, restaurants, stores and the bus departure area for Machu Picchu. Absolutely everything about this hotel was great! The people working there, the grounds, the rooms, food..... Staying there was worth every dime! Our breakfast and dinner were included in our stay. Both meals were fantastic every day. There was a wonderful variety of offerings and the food quality was superb! We opted to utilize the hotel's optional add-on of a guide to Machu Picchu. Originally unsure if it was a 'good deal' or not, we quickly realized that it was a fantastic deal.It included the bus ride, entrance into the site and lunch (stand alone that would have been about $130USD) It was a private tour with just my boyfriend, myself and our guide from the hotel, Joseph. I'm sure Joseph doesn't know everything, but it sure seemed like it! He was ridiculously full of any and all information on Machu Picchu, the surrounding area, Peru and nature. Also he was a great guy! He spoke superb English too! The hotel/Joseph planned the day out very well, and the day included lunch at the restaurant just outside the entrance to the site. The food at the restaurant was surprisingly good, and Joseph had brought us tasty snacks too, to enjoy at the top of the mountain. The following morning we did two of the included hotel activities, we went bird watching with Carmen and Aquilles, as well as going on a nature walk with Manuel. I highly recommend at least one of these wee adventures. The hotel grounds have an extraordinary beauty that you will miss if all you do is walk in between your room and the dining room. Carmen on the bird watching tour was wonderful & we were able to see birds that we had never seen or noticed. Manuel on the nature walk was also great. He taught us a lot about the grounds and the stunning orchids. Obviously I highly recommend this beautiful hotel in the cloud forest. We would stay here if we ever go back!

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.
