This hotel and especiallly the garden made me feel I was in a Henry James novel or a passage to India - old fashioned, peaceful, quaint... I adored it. Rooms were very comfortable too and the restaurant was great with the best coffee we had in Peru. Also super close to the train station to Machu Pichu.

This hotel is located next to the train and is most convenient for an early morning departure to Aguas Calientes. It is a hidden gem with a small check in but when you go to the rooms there is a lovely garden. We had a hammock on our balcony and it was charming and delightful. There is a restaurant and... More

We stayed 2 nights here. Ate at the restaurant both nights and the food was inventive and fresh as well as delicious. French toast at breakfast was excellent. Hotel staff was extremely helpful when we had a complaint. Wonderful location for train to Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu.

Everything was great at el Albergue! A beautiful place with nice gardens. My room was great in every aspect. The staff was super nice. The restaurant offered vegetarian options and was very tasty. Plenty of options for breakfast to get you ready for hiking Machu Picchu! I would definitely stay there again (but perhaps ask for a room away from... More

The hotel gives straight onto the train platform at Ollantaytambo, which is very convenient for catching the train to Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu. The hotel is very pleasant, with simple rooms that are spacious, and wooden shutters on the inside of the windows. The place gives every appearance of being eco-conscious and gives you the opportunity of recycling batteries, plastics etc...... More

Ate here on my recent stay in Ollantaytambo, Absolutely fantastic, the food (pumpkin soup followed by pasta with a mushroom based "sauce"), the service (lead by super attentious Saul, the maitre d'), the place, everything. Undoubtedly, on of my best meals in Peru so far!!!

We stayed here due to the convenience of the train station for our trip to Machu Pichu. We had an excellent waitress on the morning of our trip who ensured that we had a cooked b/f before our v early train. Lovely meal in restaurant that night also and reasonably priced. Bed comfortable and rooms ok for short stay. Garden... More

We stayed at El Albergue for four nights and it was a wonderful experience. We had everything we needed, the rooms were spacious, the bathrooms well appointed, the beds very comfortable and the gardens lovely. We had two excellent dinners and the breakfasts were varied and filling. The organic farm was very interesting and we were impressed with the recycling... More

One of the highlights of Ollantaytambo is Alburgue. They have the best food and wonderful, very helpful staff. They helped arrange our trips and cabs and also let us use some of their facilities when we weren't staying there They were the only place in town with a generator when the power went out. All pasta is home made and... More
