As the only hotel located right next to Machu Picchu and its citadel, the attraction of the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge is location, location, location. For the price the standards of the hotel are not really up to scratch, but at a minute’s walk from the turnstiles marking the entrance into the sacred valley, staying at the hotel lets you be the first amongst the ruins to see the sun rise, beating the hoards of tourists arriving on coaches shortly after, and if you like you can stay until dusk and be the last to leave. When you do finally drag yourself away from the mesmerising views, the hotel itself has landscaped gardens with hummingbirds and waterfalls which you can observe from your balcony before dinner, which is one area in which the hotel excels.
