Located just a short five-minute walk from the train station in Aguas Calientes and beautifully surrounded by over 12 acres of forest garden beside the Urubamba River, is the grand Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel. This hotel is at the foot of one of the most famous and mysterious archaeological sites in the world, directly overlooking the roaring river.
The Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is split into a main building and bungalows, emulating a small Andean town. The architecture is Spanish colonial in style with stone archways and red tiled roofs. White walls, red tiles, high windows flanked by exposed beams, and a private veranda, all contribute to make this the perfect place to enjoy your stay at Machu Picchu. Guests can sit on their verandas or walk leisurely along garden paths.
The Pueblo is home to 372 species of orchids, 100 species of birds, and 250 species of butterflies. Even if you don't stay at the Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel it is well worth a visit. Spend some time wandering the paths or take one of their orchid or bird tours. The hotel offers a wide range of ecotourism activities that promote contact with nature and the local culture. It is also involved in a project to rehabilitate spectacled bears and eventually to release them into the wild.
For your hungry needs, the Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel has three fabulous options:
Mikhuna Wasi, which means “house of food” in the Quechua language, is a comfortable, spacious area built as a large glass house with an exceptional view of the Urubamba River and the green mountains. The restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy the breakfast buffet or a delectable variety of international and Peruvian cuisine for lunch or dinner.
Café Inkaterra is located just a few meters from the Aguas Calientes train station. This buffet-style restaurant offers regional and international cuisine served in a spacious dining room.
Hiram Bingham Bar offers a comfortable atmosphere with a large selection of drinks, light snacks, and board games. The bar is an experience for the senses as it combines the aromas of extravagant humid forest flowers, soft coffee, the unmistakable Peruvian lemon constantly cut for the famous Pisco sour, and a hint of honey from the wax of the rough beams.
86 secluded rooms, all with different pitched-roof bungalows, are connected to each other by winding stone paths. There's a definite home-like atmosphere about the hotel, with colorful handcrafted furnishings and spacious rooms filled by plenty of natural light.
The Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel has large, comfortable single and double rooms in standard and superior grades, along with junior suites and suites for the guest who requires greater comfort and luxury. Triple rooms are available only in some superior rooms and junior suites.
Some suites are equipped with wireless Internet, flat screen TVs and DVD players, slippers and bathrobes, and separate sitting areas. The Inkaterra Suite, the hotel’s most luxurious room comes with a private garden, pool, iPod dock, and minibar.
