My wife and I stayed here with my 2-year old daughter for a few nights in January 2021. I worked from the cafe during the week while the ladies explored this amazing little village before visiting Machu on the weekend. This place (actually the entire country) has unquestionably been impacted negatively by the coronavirus. I truly hope as people emerge from the limitations and constraints imposed by the spread of the virus that people look to spend their time and money at a place like this. Despite the circumstances and after meeting the owner, I empathize with their unfortunate situation but also am grateful for their persistent resilience and adaptability. Because they own the property, they are making the best of the situation, taking care of their animals and crops, refurbishing some of the buildings. This place should be on your radar for comfort and reliability. Do not worry about what you have read regarding train "noise and smell". I stayed here for days, there are no concerns at all. Never awakened by the trains, never smelled a thing aside from when at the tracks. This place is great...and ironically, entry is controlled by the train station guards, so it feels more safe than anywhere else. I loved it here, and hope others enjoy their stay as much as we did. Also worth mentioning - this team reached out to us early and often to ensure coordination was comprehensive preparing for our arrival. The room upgrade was also appreciated!!

We stayed at El Albergue in Sept. 2019 so I'm quite behind in writing this review but still felt compelled to do so as I went through some trip photos. I was looking forward to staying here based on the excellent TripAdvisor reviews but this is one of the few times my fellow travelers have let me down. We booked a Superior Balcony room that was supposed to be "furthest from the train platform," but in fact was effectively right next to it and we could clearly see, smell, and hear the train maybe 25 feet from our window. The lighting in the room was poor and gave it a dark, dreary feeling. I'd say the overall quality of the room was 3-star level. In terms of food, the in-house restaurant is fine, though not particularly memorable. We did enjoy the pachamanca lunch experience though and had a great chat with other guests during the meal. I wrote a fairly extensive review on the in-room feedback card at the end of our stay and wish I'd taken a picture so I could remember more details. I will say the service was good, but I wasn't thrilled with our stay here and wouldn't seek it out again.

Our stay last summer was wonderful - I have been meaning to write a review ever since. Our unexpected upgrade to "La Casita" was a treat; we also enjoyed the wood-fired sauna, and the gardens & hammocks. The breakfasts were the best we had in Peru - the bread was so good I tried to buy some - the kind maitre d gifted me some instead. I appreciated the conservation efforts as well.

Oh my gosh, what an amazing hotel following a long trek to Machu Picchu! The bedrooms were simple, modern, yet very comforting and homey. The walk back to the rooms was amazing; flowers and healthy vegetation everywhere. We were able to freely walk around the property; exploring the farm, animals, coffee roaster, and the distillery. The food was amazing, and breakfast was always fresh. Overall, magical stay.

We chose the superior garden room. It was large, simply furnished, beautiful, full of light. There were a queen bed and a twin, a large bench, some chairs, and a nice little desk. Our door opened onto a really lovely garden, where we enjoyed strolling and watching birds and butterflies. Excellent sleep--could just barely hear the trains, which did not disturb us at all. The food is excellent. Try the quinoa soup--simple, clean, sustaining, and delicious. Breakfast is lovely, too. There's a nice selection of fruits, breads, and yogurt on the buffet, plus hot choices prepared to order. Try the tacu-tacu--a cake of refried beans, topped with an egg. SO good! All the service personnel are helpful, kind, and friendly. Good drinks, too! Cannot wait to return.
