Its a great weight off your mind to have the Hostel organise the transport to and fro Cusco, off the plane straight into the van Rooms were comfortable and roomy. (Unfortunately our hot water was not hot, but the hostel attempted to rectify it.) The view from our room was spectacular. Well positioned and a couple of minutes walk into... More

This place was amazing! There was a driver waiting for us in Cusco. When we arrived, Sabrina took care of everything we needed. Our room was spectacular and affordable. The grounds are full of beautiful flowers. The view and location were stunning. The room and bathroom were clean and just modern enough. I had an injury and Sabrina found me... More

This beautiful little hostel was a delight to stay and and I will definitely return. The location is idyllic, overlooking the river and on a quiet street, only a short walk from the main town. The hostel and room had lots of little extras included, adding to my experience. The staff are so friendly, offering lots of local advice and... More

We stayed here one night in a room with two double beds which were quite tight, but very comfy. The staff was very kind and got us a portable heater. The room was very clean. No breakfast was offered. Great location...close to everything.

I stayed here 3 nights. The hotel is located on a scenic little street in Ollantaytambo. The room was small but very pleasant and clean. My room had a bed, table/chair, end table and bathroom. There is a community room with a tv and books but I did not use that area choosing instead to relax in the beautifully gardened... More

This is a very nice place to stay. You can walk to all the points of interest in town and it's also close to good restaurants. The staff is friendly and helpful. We got great advice on things to do and where to eat. The gardens are beautiful and it's pleasant to walk around the grounds.

We stayed for 1-night on our trek to Machu Picchu in February. My only regret is not staying here for longer. The rooms are simple, not fancy, but very comfortable. The fresh flowers were a nice touch and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in #6, which was very private with a comfy bed and a small table with... More

Clean room (which is saying a lot in a dusty town), fabulous view, comfortable bed -- what more can you ask for? We were in room 7 (I think) which had a great sitting area outside. Florence at the front desk was wonderful in helping us plan local travel. Price is reasonable. Ollantaytambo is a town worth traveling to and... More

Ollyantambo is a small but very pretty town in the sacred valley and our overnight stop prior to reaching Machu Pichu . It would be a shame to miss it as it reflects the day to day lives of Peruvians who live here. The simple but beautiful Plaza de Armas was a show case that evening of dancing and music... More

We stayed one night at Hotel Iskay in August 2014. This guest house is located in the old centre of Ollantaytambo, amongst small inca streets. It's a nice option if you want to visit the ruins on the next day. The room was decent and very clean. The staff were very service-minded and helped us organise our trip back to... More
