Stopped here for dinner the night before heading to Machu Picchu. Food wasn't bad, had a big portion of chicken tacos and a cerveza. It was enjoyable for people watching and star gazing. No complaints re: food or service, although it wasn't all that remarkable.

We stopped there for drinks last week and had a blast. The views of the square from our outside table were fantastic. The service was also very quick and efficient. The drinks were awesome especially my new favorite; The Pisco Sour. This place is totally worth it to stop by for a few drinks especially since they have some free... More

We arrived to town with no reservation, stumbled into this place and we were so glad that we did. This was our first "hostel" stay and it was fine. Clean, warm and quiet describe this simple hostel and you can't beat the location. Great value

We did not stay at this hostal (though now wish we had) but we ate here for dinner and enjoyed it so much we came back for breakfast. The owners, chefs and servers are a sweet couple who make great food. The empanadas are AMAZING especially the chicken. It's all made fresh when you order. The location is great, right... More

Service was great. The place is really cozy, and it's very well located to see the town. We were unlucky to have the water heater fail during our stay, but the owner provided all the help for us to have a hot shower, regardless of it being past midnight. Also, he woke up earlier than usual, at 5am to prepare... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a lunch and a dinner at this cafe while we were visiting Ollantaytambo. It sits on the main plaza, with a view of the mountains beyond the Urubamba River. We found the food to be excellent, especially the veggie burger (hamburguesa vegetariana), the quinoa soup, pesto pasta and guacamole. For lunch we loved the chicken empanadas and... More

I stayed here just one night (a short night). I arrived here at about 8pm. I was greeted well by the wonderful lady who runs this hotel with her family. Unfortunately, due to some miscommunication, she didn't have the Hotels.com booking I had made. Not her mistake though. Fortunately, she had a room free. I paid her $27 for it... More

Hostel Kiswar Ollantaytambo This hostal is located in Plaza de Armas, in the very centre of Ollantaytambo (a small village anyway). Having read the very good reviews, I was disappointed. Basically, I didn't like my room, since: - It didn't feel cozy and very clean - It was noisy: I could VERY CLEARLY hear people walking down the stairs and... More

The physical plant is pretty basic but this place has soul. The people running it are amazing when it comes to help and caring! The location is great too. Close to the best , but not most expensive, restaurant in town, right on the square. .It is good clean basic shelter with people that will insure you are well taken... More
