Hotel La Cabana Machu Picchu
Ranked #8 of 29 Hotels in Aguas Calientes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We stayed here for one night in late April as a couple. We asked them to meet our train to take an extra bag with clothes and toiletries up to the the hotel so we could continue on the bus to Machu Picchu. At first we didn't see anyone, but as we exited the train station there was a man holding a La Cabana sign. We handed over our bag and were happy that when we returned in the evening to check in, it was right there. They were very friendly and helpful. Cute little boutique hotel. We ended up on the 4th (top floor) in a very large room. The bath was a bit dated, but functional and clean. The room had it's own sitting area and was very comfortable. Great breakfast in the morning and again they brought our bag to the train station for us after we spent the day at Machu Picchu. Excellent service and a friendly place. The walk is up hill, but if you spent the night in Cusco, the elevation is not a problem here.

My friends and I stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms we had were tight (2 single beds in each room) and so was the bathroom. However, with that said, it was still a comfortable stay. The staff was great. Lis at the front desk was helpful. She even had a cake made for my sister and friend who were celebrating their bdays! She surprised us by having it in the room and one of the beds was made w/ sculpted towels and colored petals strewn on the bed.....nice touch!! The luggage carrier was also on hand at the train station to take our stuff as the route to the hotel is a "climb".....and also, he brought our luggage back to the train station upon our departure. Breakfast was a buffet of hot and cold food. The hotel is right along the thoroughfare of pubs/restos/shops. Wouldn't mind staying here again....great value for the buck!!

Pro: a very nice boutique hotel on the main street of the town. We only stayed one night before we took bus to Machiu Picchu. Our group were offered the whole third floor rooms which are all very roomy and nicely touch. Breakfast is good and very good service.
Con:A bit uphill long walk from the train station to the hotel especially you have heavy luggage.
Our tour company PFL booked this hotel for us and it was a good choice.

We stayed two nights at this hotel. It is on a very steep street above the town but fairly convenient. We were surprised to be met at the train station by a staff member then led quickly up the steep streets of the town with no offer of any help with our luggage. Quite an endurance test! The room was adequate size with a queen plus twin size bed but smelled musty. The atmosphere is very humid in Aquas Calientes. We were awakened by noise from other guests getting up early to travel to Machu Picchu and a couple of roosters but the breakfast was good. The receptionist was friendly and stored our luggage the last day so we could tour MP one more time before our train departed. We felt the cost was a bit high but it IS just below Machu Picchu!

The hotel was clean and on the main street of town, which was nice. The breakfast was below average but, the rest of the hotel was nice. The hotel does have some odd features about it. For one, the bathrooms all have windows that open up into the main hall. Also, the rooms are all next to a large staircase or courtyard so it can be a little noisy. The internet was hit or miss but, worked the majority of the time. Overall, the hotel did its job and allowed us to see Machu Picchu. It just did not blow me away.

La Cabana is actually quite a good three star hotel.The rooms were well presented and very clean and the rates were quite reasonable.

There were a few quirky things about the hotel which made our stay quite interesting.

The staircase is in a large open area in the centre of the hotel with some of the bedroom and bathroom windows opening onto it. It was quite disconcerting to be sitting on the loo up on the 4th floor and be able to hear conversations going on at the front reception desk!

The bathroom itself was quite pokey and to fit the toilet roll holder in they had put it tucked away into a corner at head height making it quite a challenge to reach :)

The hotel is right in the middle of town so you do get a bit of noise. There are no vehicles that far up the hill so it is mainly dogs barking and I am sure I heard the occasional chicken clucking.

It may have been free but unfortunately the internet was frustratingly irregular. I would say 9 out of 10 attempts to login were unsuccessful.

Overall, our stay was quite pleasant and the hotel staff were very helpful.
