Best Places To Stay At Machu Picchu

The best hotels at Machu Picchu are mainly in the small town of Aguas Calientes which is a 20 bus ride away from the ancient citadel. There is one hotel located adjacent to the citadel that allows you to wake up and walk straight into the hotel, but it is not the cheapest, nor the best hotel in Machu Picchu. 

Machu Picchu Pueblo hotel

Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel provides tranquillity, away from the hoards visiting Machu Picchu. It has been built in 12 acres of beautifully manicured gardens, rife with hummingbirds.

Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge

Location, location, location... The Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge by Belmond has a great reputation -  mainly because it is the only hotel adjacent to the ancient citadel which gives you the extraordinary opportunity to be the first and last person at Machu Picchu.

El Mapi

El Mapi is a contemporary and economical hotel located on the main street of Aguas Calientes at the base of Machu Picchu. A good comfortable option for a cocktail, a nice meal and some rest after exploring Machu Picchu.
