Gea Lodge is a lovely simple lodge surrounded by a roaring river and botanical gardens. The gardens and waterfall are beautiful. Erwin, the lodge owner, was really helpful. Dinner was delicious! The only issue was the shower didn't have the hottest water. Great place to stay if you're walking along the tracks from Hidroeléctrica and hiking up to Machu Picchu....

A totally different experience, with respect to the all-hotels-and-restaurants Machu Picchu Pueblo, if you don't mind walking for 4 km in the forest along the railway, An ideal choice if you are doing the "alternative" way to go back to the Sacred Valley or Cuzco (walking + bus instead of the expensive train): Clean, quiet, simple, relaxing, with a beautiful...

This place was great. It is around 1,5 km from Agua Calientes. That means if you walk the train tracks, you have this distance shorter on both ways. It is a great position if you walk up the steps to Machu Picchu. Owners are very nice, and the rooms are good. Eat at the lodge they serve great food, for...

Thanks for your comments! We love to see you enjoyed our traditional cuisine at Mamá Angélica Restaurant, thanks for leaving feedback and letting us grow reputation. Aguas Calientes (also known as Machupicchu village) is 4Km far from us, around 1h walk. It's very easy to get to the first checkpoint at Puente Ruinas (2Km / 30min), but be prepared for...

As a family with 2 kids (7 and 8 years old) Aguas Calientes didn't sounded like a place where we could find something quiet, decent, reasonable priced to sleep. But then I found the website of Gea Lodge (same owner as the Mandor Gardens)! It sounded great and it was! Erwin picked us up at the train station in Aguas...

We are a family of 4 adults that stayed at the Gea Lodge last week. Great location to escape the crowds in Aguas Calientes. Very reasonable price. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Friendly staff. Dinner was very good. Walk half an hour to the start of the hike to Machu Picchu. Not an easy hike but much better than waiting for...

We were so lucky to find this lodge through trip advisor. After spending a few nights in the flawless Incan town of ollantaytambo, we arrived by train in aguas calientes a sad tourist town reeking of inauthenticity. Fortunately we were met by Erwin Rosa at the train station, who carried our bags as we walked a pleasant hour along the...

Being late with our travel planning, I was appalled by the hotel options and the prices in Aguas Calientes. We also would have liked to hike the Inka trail, but this sounded equally crowded. We ended up doing the trip as described below, which I highly recommend for outdoor lovers and hikers. Key ingredient is the Gea Lodge (it is...
