I stayed here a few nights in December 2009. I loved ever detail of this delightful hotel. The staff is wonderful and the restaurant was the perfect place to eat and relax after a long day of hiking. I strongly recommend this place for individuals and couples.

I am very impressed with El Albergue. The location is fantastic, the grounds are breathtaking, and all of the staff was very helpful. My stay in the superior balcony was unfortunately brief, and I wish I had planned a night after Machu Picchu, rather than before. Alas, I will have to return! Do yourself a favor and plan better than... More

Being a former railway station building it's obviously right next to the tracks. This makes access a bit inconvenient if arriving by car as there's a bit of a walk and the nearby streets are always busy, making parking difficult. As it is on the main line to Aguas Callientes the trains start early - very early (around 04.30) and... More

This hotel is one of the best I have stayed in! It is in the station at Ollantaytambo where you catch the train to Machu Picchu. How convenient is that! The bedrooms are huge and set back from the track with great views down the Urubamba valley. They have their own Huerta and cook their own produce in the restaurant.... More

We recently visited Peru, and April 2015. We were lucky enough to spend a night in this charming rustic hotel. It had beautiful gardens, and an amazing restaurant ( with veggies produced in their own farm). The rooms were more than adequate and the beds were very comfortable. We left here and went on a three-day backpacking track into the... More

We stayed 3 nights in April, 2015, before & after our trip to Machu Picchu. What a wonderful place!! The rooms are spacious and quaint, while still having any modern convenience we needed. Everyone on staff was so eager to take good care of us and give us anything we wanted. They even made a special tea for me when... More

We spent a couple of nights here as we acclimated to the high altitude before our trek to Machu Picchu. Lovely surroundings, excellent meals prepared with products from their own organic farm [which you can visit], tasty Pisco sours, comfortable beds and HOT solar heated showers. The Inca ruins are worth the visit as well. We hired a guide at... More

We reserved a few nights, several months in advance of our visit, and paid a deposit. We also sent money to purchase entry tickets to Machu Picchu. When my husband suffered an injury and we needed to cancel our trip to Peru, I notified El Albergue more than a month in advance and requested a refund according to their policy.... More

Our family of four stayed 3 nights at this wonderfully authentic and rustic boutique hotel as part of our destination to Machu Picchu. The location is perfect for numerous reasons. We were able to explore the quaint town of Ollantaytambo and some of the really great Inca ruins located there. There is an original Inca trail that goes directly from... More
