Machu Picchu Hotels
Machu Picchu is by far Peru’s most popular destination and therefore it is no wonder that the hotel and accommodation scene has exploded here. Nevertheless due to the location, in a narrow canyon, next to the Urubamba River, space is limited in Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu Town) and hotels therefore often have to be inventive with the spaces available. Nevertheless in Aguas Calientes one can find good quality hotels for all types of travelers and budgets. Apart from the standard amenities and services we look for in hotels, for Machu Picchu some other factors we think are important when choosing a hotel for our passengers. These are the hotel location; Machu Picchu is a pedestrian town with no traffic. The town is not that big but everything has to be done on foot. Also the location in regards to the train and bus station is good to keep in mind. Secondly as Machu Picchu is a town with a semi exotic and humid climate it is important that the hotels are foreseen for this with good ventilation or air conditioning for the higher end hotels.
