Stay of a Lifetime
The most beautiful hotel you could ever imagine! There is no other setting like this in the world, so why would you stay anywhere else when you take a trip to Machu Picchu? The staff make every effort to make sure you are taken care of. They truly deliver first-class service at the Sanctuary Lodge. Bruno was such a pleasure to work with. The rooms are quite comfortable and the views from the hotel grounds are stunning. The food at the restaurant is fantastic. We loved that they had changing rooms for guests to take a shower and change clothes for the train even after checking out. I would recommend a stay here a thousand times over. This may be a once in a lifetime traveling experience, so making a reservation here is a must!

First of all this hotel was so bad that I did not even get to stay in it. I made reservations three months in advance and the last day before flying out to Peru I get a message that my reservation has been cancel. To this day I do not know what happen and why my reservation was cancel. No one was able to help me out and I ended up staying in a different hotel at no fault of mine. Bad service bad communication bad everything. Don’t book here they will cancel your res.
