We stayed 2 nights here and it was absolutely wonderful. The hotel IS situated right on the train line to Machu Picchu but that is the fun of it. We spent hours watching the trains come and go ( as we acclimatised to the altitude). The restaurant is quaint and the food is ten out of ten. The staff were... More

We stayed one (sleepless) night at El Albergue before a 4 day trek to the Machu Picchu. Our room (number 3) had view on the train track. It was very confortable, but so noisy! The restaurant offers awesome food, and the staff was pretty welcoming.

When you stay in the Albergue hotel, you first imagine that you are in a small European town. The steam engines roll past the Cafe Mayu, right next to the lobby, as you sip your extremely well-made coffee. In the chilly winter mornings of Ollantaytambo, Peru, this tiny moment carries more weight than gold. The rooms are worth the price.... More

We booked here on the strength of the many positive reviews and feel a bit let down overall. There are some good points, beautiful gardens, rooms airy and well serviced, but I have to be balanced. The staff in the restaurant are surly and the food most definitely is not as good as some of the other reviews state, of... More

We had a quiet room for the night of 6th July 2014 at the back of the hotel. Once inside you would not realise that you are actually at the station on the line to Machu Picchu. The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful. The restaurant was one of the better ones we experienced in Peru. In particular... More

Beautiful grounds, gorgeous architecture, large rooms, clean wood floors (no musty carpets), friendly and helpful service, and the best location in town. Would have loved to stay a couple of days there. The town has charm galore. Only one drawback, which I hope they will correct soon. Ask them if they have covered their pillows with an allergen cover.

We stayed at this rustic and charming hotel for two nights on our way to Machu Picchu. We had room 15 on the second floor at the back of the hotel further away from the train tracks. What a lovely spot, the views from our balcony facing the mountains and ancient ruins of the town were beautiful. Both rooms 15... More

This is lovely hotel located right on the railway platform. It was a very convenient place to stay for visiting Machu Picchu. It was pleasant to hear the trains arrive and leave. At night it was quiet and we slept soundly. From the bedroom, it felt as though we were in the country with views of the ruins, hills and... More
