Rupawasi Condor House
The Best place to stay in Aguas Calientes
There are more luxerous options but you reallt can't beat Rupa Wasi Ecolodge. The lodge is up the hill a bit from the square and is the only place with a view of Machu Picchu. Unlike the rows of concrete block hotels, Rupa Wasi is a beautifull wooden lodge with stunning views, big open windows and a great romantic getaway feel.
Unique Quality: The Service here is great without being sufficating. They will give you advice on hiking trails, Cook you a cheep traditional Peruvina meal and show you around the town but, other than perhaps the golden retrever, they will not bug you when you just want to stare out the window at Macchu Picchu up on the Mountian.
They have a reall commitment to ecology, they are building an extension out of recycled plasytic botles, and will happily tell you about their philosophy and their projects. They also have a Surf Lodge on the Coast.
Directions: From the railroad go uphil to the square. as soon as you are in the square take a left, pass city hall, go right up the steep stone stairs
