We loved El Albergue! We had a room overlooking the train tracks and enjoyed watching the comings and goings of the travelers. It was also very convenient for our own traveling to be right there. The property is cute and cozy, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The beds are comfortable and the showers have good water pressure. Wifi... More

My wife and I took a trip to Machu Picchu to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Based on our research we decided to spend 2 days in Ollantaytambo prior to our arrival at Machu Picchu, which turned out to be a great decision, largely due to our stay at El Albergue hotel (very environmentally progressive). Julia made our prior arrangements a... More

My daughter and I started our Peru vacation in Ollantaytambo and we couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay at El Albergue. I was having problems setting up transportation from Cusco airport to the hotel and Julia was very helpful in arranging a driver for us. For 100 dollars the driver was there to pick us up on...

I stayed at El Albergue for one night, two days in between going to Machu Picchu. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, and our room was extremely spacious and quaint as well. The staff were very accommodating and willing to help out with anything during our stay. The hotel is also right on the train station which makes it SO easy... More

Tired from our 4 day Inca trail, it was a relief to step into the hotel which is right on the platform of Ollantaytambo railway station. That said, the rooms are quiet and beautifully placed near gardens with views of snow capped mountains. Spacious and clean with great showers, this was just what we needed after the Inca trail to...

We stayed at El Albergue for two nights. Our room was # 9. We were a group of 4 adults, a couple and 2 more people. The Albergue was able to accommodate us without problem. We paid an extra charge for the additional person. The place was clean. It had a small garden, and a good view. We did not... More

El Albergue is wonderful, eclectic and full of good character. Our room looked out snow capped mountains and a lovely garden. The staff is attentive, professional, kind and responsive. The decor is simple and tasteful, the owner has a good eye. White walls, old dark wood beams. Beds are perfect - nice and firm. Lovely fireplace in the lobby area.... More

When they say "convenient to train station" they aren't kidding. Walk right out of the hotel and right onto the train to Aguas Calientes. The restaurant serves some amazingly fresh food (there's an organic garden adjacent to the establishment) and the service is phenomenal (Jenifer was a fantastic server). Make sure to linger for Happy Hour and have some of... More

I shoul say that El Albergue was not my first option in Ollantaytambo - I had another one, but as it was full they directed me to "El Albergue". But I should say: I was very lucky!! This hotel is that kind of "Great Small Hotel": lovely decored, confortable, a very committed team, all this had made our stay a... More
