The Tree House restaurant that is part of the Rupawasi is the best restaurant in Aguas Caliente. The service at the hotel is wonderful, very attentive and warm. The rooms are basic, but the bedding is very nice. It feels a little like camping with fabulous food. There are quite a few stairs, but compared to Machu Picchu, it's not...

I was looking forward to this hotel on our trip to Machu Picchu. The website looks amazing however the room did not live up to it. There were a few items missing from the room such as a safe, phone, tv, and hair dryer. I am one for roughing it however if I am paying such a steep price as...

We had to walk up numerous steps to get to the hotel and although it was all built of wood and charming, the rooms were just average. We got one with two single beds even though we are a couple. Staff was helpful with contacting the tour operator when we arrived sick and they all helped to arrange for us...

Dear Guest Thanks for staying with us, regarding your stay, we are like you say up , but like everything in Aguas calientes is Up or down. Also important to mention visitors, say that Machupicchu is more expensive than Cusco, this is normal as everything has to come by train and also involves more logisitics, many people dont realize we...

Although it was 86 steps straight up to our room it was well worth. The hike up was good training for Machupicchu for sure. Built of all natural wood, well built as well up against the mountain: super clean, excellent service and excellent although expensive dinners. The breakfast were the same old that we had at most all hotels in...

My husband and I stayed in room 5, the highest room with a panoramic view at Rupa Wasi. It was kind of cool, like a guest/tree house. The downstairs held an extra single bed and the bathroom, while up the stairs (almost a ladder) was a room just big enough for the double bed. The large windows slide open making...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was unique and the room while small was clean and comfortable. The food in their restaurant was delicious! The alpaca wrapped in bacon with chimichurri on top was the best dish we had while in Peru.

This hotel is extremely overpriced for what it offers. The only two good things are the beds and the staff, which is friendly. Apart from that, showers are completely irregular - yes, there is hot water, but you can't regulate, so it's either scalding or freezing. If you stay in one of the standard rooms, you'll hear every step on...

My stay at Rupa Wasi was excellent. The staff was attentive and kind. The food at the restraunt was excellent, the beds comfortable, and the showers hot! I would definately stay there again and recommend it for anyone traveling to see Machu Picchu.

Everything about Rupa Wasi is inviting and hospitable, particularly the staff headed by manager Alcides. My room had a private balcony with a great view of the mountains and gorgeous foliage. The Tree House restaurant is great as well. I recommend the package that includes transportation, entrance and a guide to Machu Picchu and three meals.
