We enjoyed our stay here overall. The location is great - just a minute from the train station and about a 5 minute walk up to the town's main square. The room was good with a big bed, TV and ok bath/shower. However when we arrived reception didn't bother to show us to our room and the receptionist's English was... More

I was feeling a bit anxious about this section of our trip, as I wasn't sure why we needed to spend two nights here on our way to Machu Picchu, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens, conveniently located for the station and a short walk out of town. We had a room upstairs with... More

I think the best things about this hotel is the garden (you might spot a hummingbird if you are lucky) and the beautiful mountain scenery. I found the rooms themselves quite simple and a little rundown and need of a facelift. I ate at the hotel restaurant as I was tired and not feeling up to walking into town (about... More

We stayed here on our way to Machu Picchu, as it is minutes walking to the Ollantaytambo train station. It is very picturesque. The buildings are rust colored with nice designs. Reminded me of Sona Pani resort in the Himalayas. The hotel was booked via World Class travel service, so dont know how much we payed for a night. We... More

We loved this hotel. Very clean, beautiful manicured grounds and we woke up to see Llamas outside our window. Excellent breakfast. We had dinner there at night and if it is cold and you are looking for something warm try their soups made with milk. Just delicious. All in all i would rate this as a lovely hotel and we... More

Definitely a step above backpacker hotels, yet not a bit pretentious, this hotel feels like an oasis in the charming but dusty town. Beautiful grounds, inviting common spaces (bar, TV lounge, fireplaces). Better then average restaurant. I was happy to find tea and COFFEE available at all times. Easy walk from train station, not far from main plaza. Excellent location... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a tour group. The room was quiet, large and nicely furnished and the free wi-fi worked well. Dinner was an Ok buffet but the breakfast was not as good as most of the other hotels we stayed at in Peru - buffet was not very extensive and service lacking.... More

This hotel is conveniently close to the railway station, set in a peaceful well maintained garden with views of the surrounding mountains and the Inca remains of Ollantaytambo. The restaurant was rather large and impersonal serving average food and stale coffee during the day. Our accommodation however, although a good size with views overlooking the gardens was less than acceptable,... More

This hotel was located at the foot of the Ollantaytambo Fortress and and just a few steps from the train to Machu Picchu. The room was clean and spacious and had a great view. The restaurant was good and had the best soup I have ever experienced, "Inka Quinoa"!!!

I stayed here one night on return from Machu Picchu fortunate to get the last available room without reservations. It is located about halfway on the road from the train station to the historic el centro. As other reviewers have noted, the grounds are quite nice -- terraced, manicured, extensive, and tranquil. My room was clean and comfortable, the television... More
