Booked here by my tour company. Interesting location at least partly in a converted train station (the rooms were in separate buildings out back). It's a small town, so maybe 5 minute walk to the epicenter of town, 10 to the ruins. I liked the vibe -- a bit funky and environmentally conscious. Enjoyed the people staying here, too. I... More

We only stayed here for one night, I wish it had been more. It's a sea of tranquility yet on the platform of the train station! Our room was in a beautiful courtyard with fantastic plants, including beautiful Cannas - these attracted a hummingbird which my husband and i sat watching and filming for ages - from outside our room!...

Loved staying at the Albergue! Nice big room, good bed, nice ambiance. Colonial style and atmosphere. Most kind staff. Asked when booking a quiet room, which we got, in the garden, and the ever passing trains from early morning were no nuisance. Our shower gave hot water, but was not the best shower I had...that might be the only negative... More

The El Alburgue is perfect if you like convenience. It's located right on the train platform that leaves for Machu Picchu. It's a rustic hotel that has a friendly and helpful staff. Our room was in the back and had a gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains. Our front window overlooked the train tracks.The food was tasty, and the service... More

We reached El Albergue at the end of a long day in time for dinner at the restaurant. Wonderful dinner! We slept in rooms 1 and 2. Mattresses firm, rooms spacious, a little bit of a rustic feel, most welcome. View of distant glacier from the balcony in the morning was breath taking. Breakfast was great - I had the... More

El Albergue was the highlight of our trip, hotel wise. It is a lovely hotel wonderfully located right at the train station set in a wonderful garden. The room we had (#14) looked out to the garden, we had little rabbits eating the grass right by our door (they are the lawn mowers here), lovely room with light on two... More

First, the positives: the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the setting is fantastic - nice garden location with a couple of hammocks. Being right on the train platform is very convenient for getting to Machu Picchu - and it's a quick walk uphill to "town". But a few things left a bad taste in my mouth. First, one of... More

Charming hotel in great location, but no heat or hot water, at least during our stay. It was cold and I didnt appreciate not being able to take a proper shower. Having said that, the room was charming, the setting very beautiful, and the restaurant very high quality.

The location for this hotel is great and the room is very nice (aside from the lack of hot water in the solar heated rooms), but what bugs me were the fees. There is a 10% service fee which isn't fully disclosed when booking the room, which is the first thing. Then, when checking out, I was informed that they... More

Dear Timothy, We are glad you liked your room and the location of the hotel. Regarding your complaint about hidden fees, I'm very surprised as the only additional fee that we have is a 10% gratuity or tip, which is clearly stated in our hotel reservation policy which you agreed to at the moment you made your reservation. As to... More

I could have spit on top of the train out the window of my room. This is actually a GOOD thing! El Albergue had all the atmosphere and was exactly what I was hoping for! I had a wonderful view of the train station activity as the trains passed right below my room. The room was large and very clean... More
