We stayed for 1-night on our trek to Machu Picchu in February. I found our room a little too rustic for my liking. It had a double and single bed, a small desk and very little room for anything else. There was a nice warm blanket on the bed and it was comfortable enough although the pillows were not great.... More

This is a nice, cute hostel to stay if you want to be a bit away from the noise. It is about 1 minute from the main market, and 5 minutes from the main square. The staff are very friendly and eager to help. Yummy breakfast served as well. Clean rooms, free wifi, really hot showers, warm comfy beds.

First off Ollantaytambo is wonderful and this Hostal was as well. The family who runs it are very sweet and helpful. We had been traveling for a while and needed clothes washed. The woman running the Inn washed them by hand for a small extra charge. She was so accommodating throughout our stay and seemed very sincere. We had a... More

Ollantaytambo is, for those in the know, a site perhaps even more powerful than Machu Picchu. K'uychi Punku sits 25 feet off the main archaeological plaza, so all one need do is step out the door and into the rui9ns. Convenient, comfortable, wifi, congenial owners. What is not to like? This has become my go-to hotel in Ollantaytambo.

Ollantaytambo is the main starting point for the Inca Trail hike and, as such, it is very busy and touristy with visitors being predominately young. The hotel is located as close as you could get to the Ollantaytambo Archaeological Park and it is within easy access of many restaurants. The hotel itself includes part of the old Inca structures and... More

As other reviews say, the modest hotel is great value and great location. Most of all -- 200% service. My sister got a bad intestinal bug the evening of our first day. The owner and her son took care of contacting medical personnel to come to the hotel at 8 PM. At 10, the owner changed her room from a... More

A friend, my son and I stayed at this lovely hotel for two nights last January, before going on to Machu Pichu. Ollantaytambo is a gem of a town to visit, and our stay was enhanced by the fact that we were lucky enough to get one of the rooms with the best views in town. No seriously, quadruple room... More

Muy buena atención. Nos hicieron sentir muy a gusto. Hermosa vista hacia las montañas, cerca de la Plaza de Armas, pero no en medio del ruido (tampoco hay tanto ruido). Un clima familiar y de buena predisposición. Muy lindo lugar para estar en pareja o en familia. Ofrecen desayuno de pan con mantequilla y mermelada, jugo fresco y hasta huevos... More

The location of the hostel is fantastic, it's right next to the ruins and the market. It was a short walk from the train station, around 10 minutes. The staff were welcoming and friendly, they were happy to answer our questions about restaurants etc. (even with limited English). The rooms were cosy and clean, with lots of Peruvian style blankets... More

Excellent location, just outside the market and close to the ruins, we didn't have any problems with noise and found the beds to be comfortable and warm. The breakfast was okay, we didn't get any cooked option.
