We had previously visited Machu Picchu so didn't go there on this trip. A recommendation from a friend led us to stay outside of Cuzco instead and explore Ollantaytambo. We climbed the ruins two days and had lots of time to explore. We walked on a secluded dirt path from the hotel to the ruins and village. The hotel is... More

This is a really amazing place to stay. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone. The rooms are stunning, with amazing views and fresh flowers. Though it's near the train station, it's extremely peaceful and quiet. It feels like an oasis. The food at the restaurant is amazing (Alice Waters style) from food they grow on their farm. This doesn't... More

Just walking through the grounds makes you feel like you've entered an oasis. It's such an enchanting feeling that you can't help but feel comforted and relaxed here. The rooms are impeccable and cozy. The staff makes you feel welcomed the second you walk through the door. It's so nice to feel at ease when you're traveling from far away.... More

This hotel is in a beautiful setting with clean comfortable rooms, a great restaurant, helpful staff, and the perfect location for visiting Machu Picchu. You walk out the front door and step on to the train.Their hotel manager was so personable, professional and responsive to our needs, quickly taking care of all details and subsequently all my stresses.

We LOVED our four night stay at El Albergue: everything about it exceeded our expectations! The garden rooms were delightful---spacious, great beds, beautiful bathrooms, beautifully decorated and quiet. The gardens were spectacular--a great place to rest and recharge after busy days of sightseeing. The service is great---low key, friendly and professional. The food was incredible--after our first meal there we... More

We recently spent eight days in the Cuzco - Macchu Pichu area and, if we had it to do over, we would have lengthened our stay at El Albergue in Ollantaytambo. El Albergue conceals its charms on the approach (right next to the train station) but once inside the property reveals itself to be a hidden oasis. Beautiful grounds, well-appointed... More

I absolutely loved this hotel. Looks like nothing from the outside. Then, you walk in and it's this perfect little oasis. Food was delicious. Room, and view was spectacular. Staff was super friendly (Julia is wonderful.) My iPhone disappeared, but I think it's somewhere on their farm. (I dropped it.)

This is a charming place right in the train station at Ollantaytambo. Most of the train passenger do not even know that past the coffee shop on the platform is a very charming inn. Try the fresh made pasta dishes and desserts are all great.

My friends and I had the most wonderful experience staying at El Albergue in Ollanta. We stayed here after visiting Machu Picchu and we were happy to discover that the hotel is conveniently located right next to the train station. The premise was extremely quiet and peaceful - just the atmosphere we were looking for after visiting the heavily populated... More

The convenience of location, right inside the train station, is tremendous, because you generally leave early in the morning by 6-730AM for Machu Picchu by train. The hotel is nice, and the room was comfortable, with a leafy surroundings outside. We were displeased that we got a room with 2 beds, instead of one queen bed as was booked. The... More
