Staying right at the entrance to Machu Picchu. Great breakfast and service.
Since it is located in a protected area, there is no AC in the rooms and it can get really hot! It is the most expensive hotel in the area but you are paying for the location

Some of the upgrades include rooms that feature panoramic mountain view and a furnished terrace.
With the ruined Inca citadel being the main attraction driving guests to the hotel, a focus on the indigenous culture and history can be found throughout the recreational activities offered. Guided treks and tours will give guests an amazing experience at the ruins, and an Incan Pachamama Tribute Ceremony will immerse visitors in the historic culture.
The Tampu Restaurant is considered a destination for foodies nestled in the remote Andes Mountains. Featuring a menu built around produce grown on the establishment, guests can sample elevated Peruvian cuisine for a dining experience that is hard to match. Serving both coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening, the accompanying Tampu Bar is exclusively available to hotel guests and allows visitors to start the day of strong or unwind comfortably in the evening.
For those looking to cross a visit to Machu Pichu off their bucket list, it’s hard to surpass the experience of the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge Machu Pichu.
