Casa Andina Standard Machu Picchu
This Peruvian-owned mid-range hotel in Machu Picchu village is a convenient base for visits to the ruins.
Owned by the reputable Casa Andina group, this contemporary hotel prides itself on its prime location opposite the railway station at the centre of Machu Picchu village. Guests arriving by train have the treat of being delivered quite literally to the door.
Whilst the building’s five-storey grey panelled exterior is a little drab, the inside is fresh, clean and modern with bright furniture, marble floors, brilliant white walls and attractive artworks.
The 54 guestrooms are simple, functional and modern in design. White walls and bedding are interrupted only by a slim brightly coloured throw hung across the end of the bed, a contemporary homage to the colourful traditional weavings of the area. Superior rooms and Suites have the added benefit of a view out over the Vilcanota River. The hotel’s riverside restaurant has floor to ceiling windows which optimise the view
