Fodor's Expert Review Tierra Viva Cusco Machu Picchu Hotel

Av. Hermanos Ayar 401, Aguas Calientes, Cusco, Peru

Tierra Viva has quickly gained a reputation for creating hotels that offer a great balance between quality and price, and this one, standing above the river at the edge of town, is no exception. Clean, large, carpeted rooms are comfortable, with modern furnishings and amenities, beautifully decorated with colorful woven wall hangings and throws by native artisans. These weavings are also scattered throughout the hotel's common areas and are offered for sale, complete with a tag that tells you about the weaver. It's not quite as stylish as a boutique hotel, but it has everything you need after a day of hiking around Machu Picchu and at a reasonable cost. Opt for a suite if budget allows.

PROS

  • excellent quality for the price
  • great location
  • assisting local artisans

CONS

  • not as high design or comfortable as luxury options
  • rooms without a river view are not recommended
