Casa Del Sol Machu Picchu
Elegant, welcoming and socially conscious riverside hotel, offering stylish, luxury accommodation and exceptional cuisine in a very convenient and scenic location.
The elegant, socially conscious Casa del Sol Machu Picchu hotel is the latest addition to the portfolio of Peruvian-owned Casa del Sol properties. Though we don't strictly agree with its self-designation as a boutique hotel, it is certainly a welcome upmarket addition to the clutch of hotels in Machu Picchu village below the ruins, as its exceptional reviews attest.
Painted in earthy tones and strewn with alpaca throws, the guestrooms incorporate abundant polished wood, discreet works of traditionally-inspired art and floor to ceiling windows. Bathrooms are strikingly original in design, and the suites even have a hot tub on a glass-fronted terrace overlooking the fast-flowing Vilcanota river.
Many guests have commented on how pleasant it is to fall asleep to the sound of the river, but should you need any more help relaxing there is a spa with a hydrotherapy pool, dry sauna and steam and massage rooms. There is also an excellent restaurant, offering exquisitely presented gourmet food in relaxed surroundings.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Aguas Calientes is an amazingly well organized town. Its main justification for existence is to facilitate the visit of tourists to the ruins at Machu Picchu! and it does this brilliantly and efficiently. The Casa del Sol hotel is close to the railway station: indeed the tracks run along the street right in front of it, which is reminiscent of Indian hill towns. The buses for the ruins run from just 50 yards away, so it is a very convenient place to stay if you are visiting the ruins! and why else would you be in Aguas Calientes? The staff were very helpful and our room on the fourth floor was good, with a view out over the river behind. Breakfast was fine and the wifi was good. The staff were perhaps the most helpful that we had encountered so far on our trip to Peru. They really did go the extra mile to assist us. Great place to stay.PR, Edinburgh
