Fantastic staff at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge
The Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel at Machu Picchu. The other option is to stay approx. 45 minute bus ride from Machu Picchu. Relative to other Belmond hotels, this is an older property and the rooms are small. We were traveling with our son (14) and fitting an extra bed in the room required some maneuvering. The staff were extremely helpful in working to accommodate. The restaurant food and service were also very good. They offer a pisco class at 6:00 which was fun and worth going to. Suggest getting a room with a terrace. It is worth the extra money, or at least ensure you don’t end up with a room overlooking the parking lot.

Very expensive but for a once in a lifetime experience the cost was well worth it....take advantage of the dining options: eat in the restaurant, order to your room or even to be delivered to your outside terrace! Our room with terrace had an outstanding view of Huayna Picchu. If you’re thinking about climbing this mountain remember that your not climbing but taking step after step of continuous zig zagging steep levels till you reach the top. Definitely not for the out of shape tourists. At Aquas Calientes shopping is fun and bartering is the way to challenge prices! The dogs in this area have personality. At Machu Picchu the Alpacas are all about for fun and amazing photo opportunities....we took time to settle down in Cusco and Aquas Calientes for before Machu Picchu to adjust to the high altitude. Our reward for this trip was staying in The Belmond Sanctuary Lodge. Best of can be the first person at the gate in the morning and can return to the Belmond for lunch and then return to Machu Picchu a second time entry to enjoy more beautiful historical culture. At the exit remember to stamp your passport!

Good but..
I think for the price, the hotel should offer more. None of the services that they offer were available, there’s no pool or hot tub, the Orchid wall seems to be in need of some Maintanence. However, it IS the only hotel within steps of Machu Picchu and the staff and customer service were both excellent. We enjoyed the food there as well. Next time, I’ll probablt save a couple hundred bucks and stay down in Machu Picchu Pueblo, only a short 20 minute bus ride away
