Apu Lodge is one of those special places where the guest experience comes first. Gustavo, the manager, was warm, engaging and interesting. Nestled off the beaten path and surrounded by a beautiful garden full of gorgeous flowers and 50 types of hummingbirds. Omelette for breakfast was the best; organic eggs made the difference. Had the opportunity to participate in a... More

We stayed at the Apu lodge for one night in March prior to heading out on the Inca Trail. The beds were comfortable, the staff very friendly (and with good English - the owner, who was running the desk when we checked in, is a native English speaker), and the environs quiet and beautiful. The lodge is a little off... More

This place is a little woo: 1) there are no TVs in the rooms 2) when my husband I got back after our trip to Machu Picchu, out of breath and dripping from a surprise rain shower, the night guy Gustavo was just like, "Ah, a little rain blessing. Very nice." but you can tell they mean well. For two... More

Apu Lodge has a nice location on a quiet pedestrian only street. Our room had a very nice view of the Ollantaytambo historic site. From the lodge it was a short walk to town where there are a number of restaurants and shops as well as a short walk further to the Ollantaytambo historic site. We enjoyed the restaurant recommendation... More

I stayed here on 3/6 for one night before Machu picchu. This hotel is located in a quiet area in the town (about 5 minutes from its main plaza area). Spacious and clean room with small bathroom with hot shower (temperature was unstable though). Heater machine and hair dryer were ready for asking. Various teas in the reception area were... More

English spoken, clean comfortable, great view of the mountains and the staff was outstanding. Enter the gates into a nice yard and garden. The hotel has hardwood floors, comfortable beds, courtyard views and lobby sitting area. The night manager Gustavo was the best. He went out of the way to make us comfortable and our stay great. Highly recommend this... More

I had the most amazing time in this place! The staff are probably the nicest people I had ever met, and the atmosphere in this place is amazing as it is relaxing. I had already recommended this to a bunch of people, including close relatives.

Very cute boutique hotel and as other viewers said, beautiful views and beautiful premise. Our issues - and probably issues irrelevant for others - is that it's a long uphill walk on uneven cobblestones to the very end of the hotel. On the upside, it is away from the noise but the B&B grounds are squeaky and you can hear... More

The garden makes this place special in Ollantaytambo. Ollantaytambo can feel busy and noisy around the plaza principal, ruins, and on the road to the railroad station. Once you step up into the Apu Lodge's garden behind a stone wall you are in a different world. It has magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and 3 idyllic hammocks. The back... More

The location is gorgeous, far from the madding traffic of the plaza, surrounded by a nice and relaxing garden, with great views over the Inca ruins. But something must be improved: - wi-fi connection (it should be extended to all premises); - presentation of the breakfast buffet; - baggage transportation (from & to the plaza); - hot water supply in...

Many thanks for your review and helpful suggestions. I am glad that you liked Apu Lodge, our beautiful location, views and garden. I notice that you stayed a few months ago, and am pleased to report that the issues we had with hot water then, following a new installation, have resolved. I apologize for this and understand that it is... More
