Extremely happy that we decided to stay here. The rooms are spotless, and I loved the white sheets with the dark brown wood and exposed beams. The service at check-in was very friendly. We had a little problem with no hot water in the room when we arrived at 3pm, but we called the front desk, and within 5 minutes... More

Who knew....from the outside you would think...no way...right outside the train station. BUT RUN here if you can. If you cannot stay there have every meal you can in the restaurant. it is just amazing. The rooms are carefree and delightful (try to stay on the second floor for sure - corner room). The meals are organic - everything grown... More

A quiet and serene location to spend a night or two during your Machu Picchu trip. So much more peaceful than the hectic Cusco. It's right at the train station, so you can literally leave the hotel lobby and board your train.It really is that simple. Breakfast was good and included daily. Dinner was very good, and you don't even... More

We stayed at the El Albergue for two nights when we were headed to Machu Picchu. The hotel has a beautiful garden, organic farm that you can tour and a great restaurant. It is right on the train tracks which makes it very convenient if you are headed to Mapi on an early train. We didn't hear much noise from... More

Our stay at El Albergue will go down as the best hotel experience I've had in my lifetime! The rooms were picture-worthy with vaulted ceilings with exposed antique beams, heated floors in the bathroom, and whitewashed walls adorned with artwork done by the Seattle-born artist & owner (Wendy Weeks). On top of the amazing rooms, the grounds are covered by... More

I can't say enough good things about El Albergue. Our room had a big porch and an amazing view of the mountains. It feels like you're staying in a garden, surrounded by beautiful flowers. We took a wood fired sauna that the hotel set up for us, perfect after a long day of hiking. Last but now least, it's the... More

We had a lovely stay at El Albergue. It is a cute, well run little hotel in Ollantaytambo. ROOM: The rooms are very clean with crisp, white linen. After staying in Peru for 2 weeks, we came to accept that the beds are hard everywhere. El Albergue is no exception. There are sweet touches in the room like a candle... More

We followed the reviews and blogs and went straight here after arriving in Lima. Made for a long day but El albergue arranged our pickup in Cuzco and we went straight to hotel. Very difficult to express how great a place this is. I will try to do it justice. Perfect location, great room, amazing restaurant (get the fresh pasta)... More

The short version: if you stay in Ollantaytambo, stay at the El Albergue. The place is well maintained, charming, clean rooms, great food, excellent location, great service/ staff. We stayed at the EA for one night with two couples. Upon arrival you kind of wonder where you are going since the hotel is literally inside the train station, but dont... More

This hotel has so many great reviews, mine is just another ringing endorsement. First, the town is lovely and our favorite place of the trip. The hotel is conveniently located AT the train station (for your easy convenience to get on train to AC). The staff were all helpful, especially Sara, who has a relaxed and friendly way about her....
