Hotel picked us up at the train station and carried all our bags up to the hotel. The hotel is at the top of Aguas Calientes which is nice since he can get loud from all the restaurants etc going on in the town at night. The town isn't that large but does have many restaurants to choose from. Also...

I am having a hard time writing this review, I hate reading reviews of people that book a 2 star hotel and expect 5 star amenities and service. After spending the rest of the time in 5 star hotels it was a hard contrast but we booked late and there wasn't much to choose from in aguas calientes. So this...

As part of my G Adventures tour I stayed here the night before going on my tour up to Machu Picchu. This hotel is almost at the top of the hill from the train station. It's worth the walk up and the views are wonderful. The rooms are comfortable and the staff very friendly.

This hotel is fantastic! My room was spacious, clean and had a window that you can leave open for a cool fresh breeze! The staff was courteous, friendly and very helpful! Breakfast is free and menu is more or less similar to other hotels that offer free breakfast. Overall great experience!

Taypikala was the perfect place for us to stay before heading to Machu Picchu early in the morning. The room was very large and beautiful and had a jacuzzi and sitting/dining area. The staff was very attentive and friendly and they were very well prepared for people visiting Machu Picchu. They knew all of the details of the trains, buses,...

This hotel was fine and had a nice early breakfast for travellers heading up to Machu Picchu. The staff were friendly. The rooms were hot and we borrowed fans to cool off the room. It was reasonably hot in Aquas Caliente and very humid in April and we had showers during the day

The staff is very polite and helpful. The room was new well decorated confortable beds and sheets, very spacious, however the curtains were white without any blackout so we got all the lights from the square in front of the hotel so this caused some trouble for us to get to sleep. The breakfast was very good.

Clean hotel, plenty of hot water, free breakfast good plus. We never ate here except for breakfast. Wifi free but weak. Service was good, John at the dining room was helpful. Hotel is the top of hill which makes it hard to get back to after going to town.

Great hotel, fabulous views, clean, comfortable room and great fluffy towels! The staff were a standout. So helpful, cheerful and efficient. Loved Enrico, the food waiter, he was a star! It's a bit of a walk uphill but the hotel porter met us at the station and carried our bags for us. Room service dinner was delicious too. Stayed for...
