Gringo Bill's Hostal

Colla Raymi 104, Aguas Calientes, Cusco, Peru

Bill has hosted Machu Picchu travelers since 1979, his was one of the first lodgings in town. Just off the Plaza de Armas, it features some of the finest stonework and lush gardens around. Once a budget option, competition has forced Bill to take his rooms—and rates—up a notch. Renovations include some larger rooms and suites. While it is not the cheapest of the fewer-frills options, it definitely has more character than most.
