Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is undoubtedly one of the best hotels in Aguas Calientes. An excellently presented 5 star hotel with awesome facilities and impeccable service. My wife and I were lucky enough to spend 2 nights at Inkaterra, all expenses paid, and can attest that it exceeded our expectations.
Alas, it is not cheap!
Okay, a confession, I haven't stayed at the Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel personally, but I know the hotel well as I have had drinks and dinner there frequently in the past. The hotel offers everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel, and it's cheaper than the Inkaterra!
Definitely try the traditional guinnea pig dish at the à la carte Qunuq Restaurant!
