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

Had two rooms for a family vacation. Hotel is just up the street from the train station making it very easy to catch the Machu Picchu train. Also easy walk to center of town. Nice rooms. Staff was helpful. We left bags with them when we headed to MP and they were collected by our arranged pickup without incident. Internet... More

I'd booked this lodge several months before our trip to the Sacred Valley and didn't know what to expect. After a few days in Lima and related, we flew to Cusco, then took a taxi to OIlantaytambo. The driver didn't know exactly where this was, so he asked someone in the town square (a delightful attribute of every Peru town).... More

Our family of 6 stayed at Apu Lodge for 2 days and loved it! Beautiful location, down a cobblestone street, an easy walk to everywhere. Quiet place to stay, great breakfast, very accommodating staff & hot water. The staff even left breakfast out for us on the morning that we left early to travel to Machu Picchu. The lodge is...

Apu Lodge is beautiful. From the friendly and welcoming staff, the wonderfully maintained garden, to the fantastic views, Apu Lodge is the place to stay when visiting Ollantaytambo. The breakfast is filling and nutritious…coffee, teas, fresh bread, eggs, fruit, granola and locally made yogurt. The decor is simple yet inviting, with art by local artists hanging in every room. We... More

I stayed at Apu lodge for over a week and loved it. The view is incredible, the grounds are beautiful and well kept, staff was friendly as well. There is wi-fi and hot water, and the daily breakfast was well done. They were very accomodating and set out a to-go breakfast prior to my Machu Picchu visit, which I thought... More

This lodge is absolutely beautiful, secluded from the more busy streets of Ollantaytambo. It has stunning views of the ruins and valley, morning cloud banks over the mountains are just perfect to wake up to, and watch while you eat breakfast or meditate. Cannot emphasize enough how beautiful the lodge's location and views are! Only issue was the sleep quality.... More

We stayed a couple of nights and the Apu lodge is an oasis behind the wall. lovely gardens and hammocks. Difficult to find at first, but then it is a nice walk along the non vehicle cobblestone paths. Wifi was very slow but that is indicative of most of the places we found in South America rural areas. Ollantaytambo was... More
