We enjoyed together with friends our stay at Samanaq. There is no better location than Samanapaq to visit al the historic sites in Ollantaytambo. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is excellent. I really recommend this hotel.

Unfortunately we only had one night here. I would have liked to stay longer. The gardens were beautiful and the hotel clean and comfortable. Ollantaytambo is interesting too especially the old town and the ruins

The hotel is next to two busy streets with tourist buses, but you don't hear the noise in the hotel. It has a big garden, common rooms with a chimney,free WiFi. The atmosphere inside this area is great. It was a very comfortable stay for us. The rooms had the perfect size and the bathroom were clean. The view to... More

Beautiful gardens, very friendly hosts, outstanding breakfast buffet - and very friendly for families. We also used them to set us up with good value private taxi trips to and from Cuzco with tourist stops along the way.

I'm so glad we decided to start our trip in Peru with 3 nights at Hostal Samanapaq. The location is incredible, right at the edge of town, an easy walk to everything and surrounded by incredible mountains. The hostal arranged to pick us up at the Cusco airport and drive us to Ollantaytambo, which was a beautiful drive where we... More

Nice space in the shower, and it takes a while before getting hot. Tip: the hotel has a central satelite television wich is (almost at all channels)... More
