Reading through the various horror story reviews of hotels in Aguas Calientes, we chose Terrazas del Inca because it sounded the best of the reasonably priced hotels. My expectations were pretty low, but we found the hotel to be clean and the staff to be very friendly and accommodating, We hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu so our trekking company dropped our bags at the hotel for us. Later, after we checked out, the hotel held our bags for the day when we went up again to Machu Picchu and they let us hang out in the comfortable lounge areas before our train. The front desk people always greeted us by name. They had good restaurant recommendations. Wifi service was dependable (so we could check back in with family after hiking). And there was plenty of hot water when we showered. So I'd recommend this B&B.
If you do pay with US dollars, make sure that they're in crisp, perfect condition --- or they won't be accepted. (Same with the bus up to Machu Picchu.)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the bank of the little river that runs through the village of Aguas Calientes, most of the rooms have a beautiful view over the river, and each room is very well equipped. There are outdoor terraces where you can read a book and drink a cup of coffee while enjoying the great view. Breakfast is served very early. At the moment you check in, you will receive lots of information about Machu Picchu and the surrounding area. There is herbal tea constantly available, which you will be able to enjoy free of charge throughout your stay. There is a small restaurant where you can order up food and drink. If you walk for 5 minutes up the hill, you will arrive at the entry gate of the hot springs. The train station and the bus stop is just a 5 minute walk down the hill. The Machu Picchu Archeological Complex is a 30 minute bus ride up from Aguas Calientes. If you choose to walk up to the ruins, it will take you about an hour and 40 minutes. There are nearby sites such as the Mandor Garden where you can commune with nature in all her glory. The Garden is a 40 minute walk. The beginning of the hiking trail up Mt. Putucusi is a 10 minute walk away. If you hike up that trail for an hour and reach the peak, you can look across at Machu Picchu. The people who work at Terrazas del Inca are very warm, friendly, and happy to be of service. For all these reasons, come visit Aguas Calientes, and enjoy a wonderful experience in Peru. ... more less
