Machu Picchu Hotels
Machu Picchu now officially named as one of the ‘New Wonders of the World’ attracts hundreds of visitors every day. Due to the remote location of the sanctuary most tourists prefer to stay for at least one night, in one of the many hotels situated close to the citadel.
The Sanctuary Lodge hotel is the only accommodation located adjacent to Machu Picchu itself, with everything else located in a small village called Aguas Calientes, 30 minutes below, in the Urubamba Valley.
In Aguas Calientes there are many hotels and hostels to choose from, but unfortunately many are overpriced and lack quality and service. If you are going to travel to Machu Picchu and want to stay one or more nights, we recommend that you dig a little deeper in to your pockets and pay around a US$100.00 per night minimum to avoid disappointment. If your travel budget is lower, we suggest that you can easily find accommodation on arrival. Take a moment to inspect your room and qualify that it meets your expectations, before handing over any cash. In lower end hostels take care of your personal belongings, as petty theft is common.

There are several Machu Picchu hotels to choose from, but our insiders tip is a night (or two) at the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Hotel (Formally known as the Pueblo Hotel). This hotel is simply one of the best on the country, if not South America. Be prepared to dig deep though, as this hotel isn’t cheap!
