We were passing through from Cusco to Aguas Calientes and decided to stop at Ollantaytambo. I am so glad we did!! Truly would have been a shame to miss this interesting place. El Albergue sent a driver to Cusco and he picked us up our hostal. From there, our long-suffering chauffeur took us up to Chinchero, on our way back to Ollantaytambo. Thank you, Victor!
El Albergue Bed & Breakfast is quaint and charming and sits right by the train platform. This is not a problem, since the last train out is around 7 PM or so. Very quiet and nice views. Exceptionally clean. Only drawback is (that depends on how you look at it) you have a good hike to the ruins and into town. Positively a plus is; you can roll out of bed and board the train.
Our rooms and hot showers were a welcome refuge after our long and tiring day spent traveling through the spectacular Sacred Valley and then climbing the hundreds of steps at the ruins. Breakfast was outstanding! All in all, a perfect 10!
