Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great hotel! We booked a room originally with Hotel Retama, but when we got to the train station, one of their staff took us to its sister hotel which is Hotel Tara from what I believe was a newer construction since we arrived hours before our check in time. They were able to give us a room right away. Thank you!!! This gesture was appreciated as we had our entry time to Machu Picchu that afternoon (took a hike from Aguas Calientes up to the trailhead leading to Machu Picchu- trailhead was about a 25 minute walk from the hotel) hotel was also very close to the train station and the main plaza, but still on a quieter side which we liked. It has a lot of restaurants close to it as well. The room was very clean and bed so comfy!! Great shower! Later at night and at dawn, it’s nice to hear the river rushing and the birds chirping. We asked for a late checkout for a reasonable fee ($30 at the time) since our train back to Cusco was not until almost 4PM. Breakfast selection was pretty okay as well. Breakfast was served at Hotel Retama, just about a 2min walk from Hotel Tara. Very open -courtyard like-. Thank you Hotel Tara and the staff. We enjoyed our stay!

We stayed here for 3 nights in May 2022. We found the hotel very comfortable, clean, safe, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was nice with coffee, juices, fruit, breads, and eggs. They even packed us a sack breakfast the days we went to Machu Picchu. We had the family room, which had two large beds (one like two kings combined, and the other a king size. I liked that the place was small, near the aqua springs, and a nice waterfall to hike. The hotel staff went out of their way to welcome us, and give us directions and tourist advice.

I’ve never seen a bed this big and I’ve stated at 100’s of hotels. It goes with the big room size. Overall, it’s a good hotel. Rooms are great. Bathrooms clean. Staff helpful. There are some down sides though.

1) It is situated at the very end of the road, uphill from the main train/bus station. This is likely not an issue for more physically fit individuals but can be a bit of a challenge for others.

2) No elevators. I personally don’t mind, but having a room on the 4th floor meant going up and down 80+ stairs each time you had to go out. Again, not ideal for those with physical disabilities.

3) Wi-fi signal on the 4th floor was very weak and interrupted. Got a bit better after the router was reset but still sketchy.

That said, I enjoyed my stay. Plenty of restaurants, shops, laundry services (including one in the adjacent street that was 24 hrs service), massage joints (I’m not into massages but some may need one after hiking the Inca trail).

Breakfast was good. Healthy choices. Custom eggs.

If you don’t mind going uphill, or climbing stairs (if you do, then Machu Picchu is not the ideal vacation for you), and you prefer to be at an arm’s length from the crowd, then this place is a good choice.

The hotel was ok, very clean and personnel nice. I had several questions before arrival and communication was slow and average. Breakfast was included, the worse breakfast experience I have every had. You can't really call it a breakfast. When we arrived in the area for breakfast, there was nothing there. All the trays were empty with an ocasion piece of fruit. Obviously they did not want restock anything as we were one of the last people there. We arrived at 8:30 a.m. which is not to late and there was nothing there to eat. The person noticed how annoyed we were and tried to offer us some stale bread. The whole experience was bad and was not the way I wanted to start my adventure in Macchu Picchu. Overpriced for what it is. I would not recommed!

The hotel was arranged by our tour operator. The staff is friendly. Rooms are clean and it’s reasonably quiet at night. Our early start for Machu Picchu even allowed for breakfast at 5am, which was great. We were able to store our luggage and pick it up on return. Thank you.

I stayed two nights at Hotel Tara Machu Picchu. It was a cozy hotel located in Machu Picchu town literally surrounded by shops, restaurants and cafes and beside a river running through the centre of the town. At night it was quite and peaceful.

The railway station is only about a five minutes walk across the river (there are a few bridges) so it was very convenient. The service from the hotel staff were excellent. They were so courteous, patient and helpful. Highly recommended!

I was very happy with this new hotel in Aguas Calientes. (I live in Cusco and visit Machu Picchu very often.) The rooms were very clean and comfortable and larger than most I've stayed in in the town. The staff was especially friendly and helpful -- something that isn't always common in a place where there is so much competition for the tourist's money. It is a bit of a climb up the hill to reach, but it's worth it because there's much less noise outside. Also, the sound of the river outside was really relaxing and made sleeping easier.

This last minute booking was a gem. Super clean, friendly staff, comfy bed, river walk view, and prompt service. They explained everything from buses to Machu Picchu to the hot springs and surrounding hikes. Will definitely be back again!!!

Excellent option when staying at Machu Pichu. The Hotel is very comfortable, beds and shower are very good, spacious and bright rooms, they offer a good breakfast and its location is ideal, with the sound of the river in front.
The staff is very kind and gentle, their recommendations are very accurate regarding schedules and organization for visiting the Llaqta.
