It's well located, close to the station, main square and bus station. Spacious, room heating available and hot water. Is value for money. The staff is well informed. Overall you don't need to be in a 5 star hotel to enjoy the beauty of machu picchu. Gringo gives you as much comfort.

Gringo Bills was a very nice hotel. Clean and comfortable. I arranged for a person from the hotel to meet us at the train station. This was helpful, because the hotel is a bit hidden. Check out is at 9am but they let us stay until 10 am for free. The only major problem was the noise. It was so...

Gringo Bill's is going through a rebirth. Bill's son has taken over the property and is working very hard to renovate the property without loosing the uniqueness of the original Gringo Bills. Lawrence, Bill's son is an architect and has the skills to pull it off. He was a great host providing us with ideas as well as setting up...

Excellent service, spacious rooms with interesting deco (a bit psychedelic), immaculately clean. Highly recommended especially seeing the dumps and tourist traps that you can find in Aguas Calientes - and it's all soooo expensive for Peru. Buffet breakfast pretty good too. And you can even start having it at 4.15am. Knowing how early you have to be at the bus...

So the owner's son went to college in the US and returned to operate this charming gem of a hotel. He has the Western gift with service, working with guests, and ensuring you are happy. This place is right in the plaza and in a quiet nook of this small quaint touristy town. This hotel has character. The owner upgrades...

Service was terrible. the guy at the desk could not have been more unfriendly. when we got to our room, I took my shoes off and walked into the bathroom to find that the toilet leaked out all ove the floor and would not flush. The guy came...

Gringo Bills is located in pretty much the center of the tiny town of Aguas Calientes (aka “Machu Picchu Pueblo”). The town is pedestrian only, so no car will pick you up at the train station. Gringo Bill’s sent someone from their reception to “pick us up” – essentially, this was a person with a dolly who transported our luggage...

I'm not sure what the other hostals in the Aguas Calientes area are like, but I wouldn't stay here again. We found it expensive for what it was -- the room smelled musty, the beds were uncomfortable, the room was incredibly cramped and somewhat run down. I didn't mind the stairs, considering that this seems to be part of the...

Took a chance after reading mixed reviews and lucked out. Okay, it's not the Sanctuary Lodge, but our room was clean and comfortable with a private balcony. Rep met us at the train on arrival. The staff were "laid back" but helpful and friendly to us. Breakfast was simple but good. Solid Wi-Fi in the lobby. We took stairs to...
