Stayed here one night after a Sacred Valley tour before heading out for Machu Picchu. The town Olly itself is tiny but really quaint and we were glad we decided to stay the night. This place fits right in to Olly's overall vibe. Pros: Beautiful grounds (with hammocks for relaxing)/ great communal lounge area In room heaters (great for the... More

Our cozy, extended stay at the Samanapaq hotel included a comfortable room with a lovely view of the mountains. Entering the property, you are greeted by the soft sound of running water. Ample breakfasts included fresh fruit, many types of bread, cheese and meats, eggs, coffee and tea, several juices, in a comfortable setting. Office and housekeeping staff were extremely... More

My package holiday included a night at the Samanapaq hotel. It offered me the best night's sleep I had while in Peru; it's in a quiet location and the rooms are comfy. The staff were friendly and helpful beyond the norm, the breakfast great, and the private garden is lovely.

I echo the reviews here. Place has a homely B&B feel. However, it's a bit off the main square which makes it hard to get meals or transport. Rooms were clean but dated. Staff was helpful but not super enthusiastic (lady was). Breakfast area is lovely but choices are few. I would stay here if I cannot afford the Pakaritampu.

I booked this hotel online and there was a problem with the booking price, the hotel contacted me and made all possible to get it sorted. They also organised pickup at the train station for a fair price. Very good breakfast, short walk to the main square, nice gardens. Stayed in bedroom 8. The bedroom is not very big, but... More

What a lovely place to stay at the end of the Sacred Valley and before going on to Aqua Calientes. When dropped off at the whole in the wall entrance one wondered where one was going. However inside was a different atmosphere. The grounds are delightful and the lounges spacious. The rooms are pleasant if somewhat lacking in what are... More

This is a great place to stay. The breakfast is great - one of the best we've had in Peru. The owner is very friendly and staff is very helpful. There are beatiful grounds and several different common areas to hang out and relax. The room was very clean. The only negative is that the wifi doesn't work in the... More

I feel like some of the reviews below were for a different place. We found the staff here to be quiet, but perfectly friendly - especially the owner. And maybe it's because we're backpackers rather than 5* travelers, but breakfast was great: fresh breads, meat, cheese, scrambled eggs, coffee - and it was nice to be able to help yourself.... More

We were disappointed at the atmosphere of this place. Staff was not very friendly and the rooms were dated. We had to buy our own water (or buy it from the restaurant) even though the water isn't drinkable. It's about 3 blocks from the main square. The garden is lovely and if it's warm you can enjoy sitting out. I... More

This is a delightful place to stay. Set behind a tall wall at the junction of the towns one way system, it has gorgeous gardens and very comfortable rooms. We stayed here for a few days before and after our Inca trek and enjoyed it very much. The breakfast is no more than adequate, there is a choice of scrambled... More
