We stayed for 2 nights, at USD 90 per night. Beautiful garden, tastefully decorated lounge area, rooms are clean and spacious, nice breakfast spread. But for this place to be number 1 on tripadvisor, it does lack some fine details though...

Short distance from the main square. Rooms dated. Looked clean tho slightly musty smelling. Staff not as friendly as they could be but passable. Good... More

I stayed here the night before heading to the Inka Trek. Just a small doorway in an alley way, but when you go through the entrance you are greeted by gardens and a homey atmosphere. The rooms are basic, but comfortable, and the setting is wonderful. The staff were all so friendly, and th breakfast was good, eggs included. A... More

This wasn't my first choice in Ollantaytambo but i enjoyed a great stay here. Lovely garden and grounds, good breakfast and helpful staff. Rooms are quite basic but clean enough - just be sure to request a groundfloor room to ensure you get a hot shower and good water pressure! We booked a private tour (by "van") for 4 of... More

We stopped in Ollantaytambo en route from Machu Picchu. In fact, Olly is an interesting town in its own right and Samanapaq is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating - they arranged our guide and cab to Pisaq, also a tour of the remarkable local ruins - and the hotel amenities are excellent: beautiful... More

What to say about this hotel? You won't find a nicer place at any price. The owner lives on site, and it shows. Absolutely breathtaking mountain views. Meticulously maintained gardens, hammocks, hummingbirds. 9.8 on a 10 scale, and I'm picky! Would be 10/10 if not for the busy street outside the gate (outside of their control, but be careful on...

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.

We arrived late with our rented car, the town is a bit "neglected" with narrow streets with trucks and buses crossing it, and then we entered the Samanapaq which is a big closed compound in the middle of this noisy town. The place looks excellent, with gardens, public areas and so on which is great after the first shock of... More

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

We stayed here 2 nights and really enjoyed Ollantaytambo and this hotel. It was clean and comfortable with hot water and Internet in the common areas. The common areas are large and comfortable. Ollanta was an interesting town with good ruins. There were excellent restaurants in town as well. The owner and staff of this Hotel could not have been... More
