The hotel was very charming and the our room was large and the bed was very comfortable. A great convenience is being able to enjoy a wonderful breakfast or dinner on the property of the hotel. Departing trains are stationed 10 feet from your hotel which makes it very convenient if moving on by train. Aside from hearing the train... More

Our tour company booked this hotel for us and the location was great for those who plan to take the train but we had other complaints. The in room safe wasn't working (low batteries) and they had misplaced the key so we had nowhere to put our valuables. They told us we could just opt to not have our room... More

For those exploring the Sacred Valey and Macchu Pichu, Ollantaytambo is a great alternative location to hang out instead of staying entirely in Cuzco or Agua Calientes. El Albergue sits at the end of the village, right on the train track. This gives the place serenity and a unique setting to watch the countless trains to Macchu Picchu pass by.... More

We had high expectations for this place after reading all the great reviews and seeing the intro video on its website. I must say, yes, the hotel grounds is beautiful, rooms are beautiful, however, seems they are nickle-and-dime-ing us on everything (i.e. needed to pay for water if wanted more than the 1L complementary bottle provided, 10% gratuity included on...

We booked this hotel using Tripadvisor recommendations and are amazed by the reviews that stated there was no train noise. We stayed two nights and both mornings were woken between 3&4 am by noise from the tracks. Not trains at first, but banging as if someone was hitting the rails with a large hammer - the trains started a bit... More

Our room was directly above the train tracks. We never heard a thing! It was amazingly comfortable and clean with lots of hot water. The grounds are lovely. We were given a private tour by the manager, who showed us the school and farm. She even walked us to the ruins and arranged a Machu Picchu guide for the next... More

We chose this place as a two day stop before heading up machu pichu, thinking we might have to put up with some noise due to the proximity to the train (a good convenience when it comes to boarding). To our pleasant surprise the place is dead quiet on the inside, you can barely feel the train as it arrives.... More

We booked two nights at El Abergue as our "splurge" hotel after hiking the four day Inca Trail. The room did not disappoint. It was beautiful and felt luxurious. The bed is very comfortable, the bathrooms are large, exceptionally clean and have hot water. The hotel grounds are beautifully maintained, and look very tropical. There are some adirondack chairs for... More

We stayed here twice, before and after Machu Picchu, in two different rooms. Both were balcony rooms and had 2 double beds with a view of the grassy area. We loved the second one that overlooked the mountain range (on a clear day). Rooms #15 & 16 are probably the best due to the straight on views of the mountains.... More

My trepidation was profound on arrival. There had been a strike in the area and the station was very busy. Walking on to a busy platform to check in was a novel experience. We thought our sleep would be disturbed but it was fear that didn't come to fruition. We liked the food and it was good and the beds... More
