Can't get better location.

One thing I'm not sure that people realise before they get to MP is that it isn't just the site itself that is incredibly special. It is surrounded by green and snowcapped steep sided mountains - its mindblowing.
By staying at the lodge you are just outside the entrance to MP, with all other accommodation a 20 minute bus ride down the valley at Aguas Calientes. You can't get a better location especially if you like the idea of being able to go into the site early, then having lunch and maybe a siesta before going back in once the Cuzco crowds have gone.
If you can afford it, it is definately worth considering.
