we have stayed there for few nights. Our room was quite average. In the country side, I found rather expensive. We had hot water all the time and shower was good. The garden area was beautiful. I found the hotels communal area was better than actual room. There is also not so much lighting in the room. The breakfast was... More

We are very pleased that you have chosen us as part of your trip. We regret that the WiFi service was not adequate, but this is a problem in the town, because the company in charge does not give proper support and signal. In regard of the breakfast, it is a buffet and you can choose any drinks; coffe, milk,... More

The Samanapaq has no curb appeal an a hasty step out of the door without a look at traffic is bound to get you sidewhacked by a bus or taxi. But open the doors into the courtyard and you'll find a very inviting and comfortable place to stay if you want to stay in Ollantaytambo to explore the many ruins... More

Besides it is a beatiful site, the hotel has also a beautiful landscape surrounding it. Their breakfast is also very good. My only concern was the internet - very weak and sometimes do not work. But the hotel´s team is great and they assisted me very weel with everything that I needed. I strong recomend this hotel.

I was only here for a short overnight while heading to Machu Picchu. When I first walked in, I was blown away. I was not expecting to walk into a beautiful quaint garden-like area from coming in from a wall on the street. Very appealing decor. The office was being renovated at the time but it did not hinder anything... More

We were put here in a package tour. What a hidden gem! The people are so nice and the hotel is just a short walk away from the town square. We left early in the morning to catch the train to Agua Caliente, and when we checked out they were quite helpful with leaving our bags behind, and gave us... More

The hotel is an oasis for us when we visited Machu Picchu. We arrived at Hotel Samanapaq during the late afternoon and the staff asked about our travel agenda to Machu Picchu. We had a 4:50 a.m. check-in for our train ride to Aguas Calientes the next morning so they offered a wake up call and each of us a... More

The hotel is located near the main plaza. Looks like it's the better hotel in the small town. Very relaxing hotel with a beautiful garden. The standard room is not the biggest, however it was very cute and cozy. Friendly personnel. Nice storage, they safeguarded our luggage while away to Machu Picchu.

I stayed 2 nights with my boyfriend. The hotel is located near the little main plaza. The bed was comfortable, there was a heater inside. The SHOWER is AMAZING, always with hot water. We had to catch our train early morning for Machu Picchu, so they gave us a snack bag for our trip, which was a life saver cause... More

All fine. Very clean modern finished hotel, helpful storing luggage as they are well used to people travelling for overnight visits to Machu Picchu. Breakfast buffet of eggs, cheese, breads with jam and butter, juice and tea and coffee perfectly sufficient to start the day ,OK, nothing special. Negatives, WiFi didn't work much beyond reception and even then was slow... More

Looks like one of the better hotels in this small town a short walk from the main square and attractions. Whilst the rooms were quite small there were a couple of well appointed lounge areas with an open fire. The grounds are beautiful with the entrance gate always locked. Breakfast was a modest buffet with the standard scrambled eggs. Good... More
