This is a locally owned hotel with a great deal of pride of ownership. The staff are courteous and efficient. Great location at the train station. The hotel also has an organic farm which supplies the restaurant. The food and service is exceptional. We stayed three nights and dined there each night. The hotel arranged a car for us from...

We used trip adviser to select your dinner venue last night and we're delighted. We arrived without a reservation and after some discussion between the staff were seated in the annex closer to the rails. The food was excellent and cost us just 10 sol more than the dodgy place in the square that we'd eaten at the previous night.... More

I had searched many hotels and chose this for convenience. It is right at the train station, so we could sleep an extra half an hour in the morning. Check in was smooth and lady spoke good English. We got the rooms as booked. We booked the cheapest rooms. It was good enough. Room had 1 double and 1 single... More

I want to stay here so much! I really wanted to take the train from the hotel to Macchu Picchu which is meant to be awesome and easy and also try the Peruvian BBQ over hot coals that they have for lunch. I couldn't believe that I found a family room vacant and booked it. Unfortunately I booked the wrong... More

It has the best location in Ollaytantambo if you are taking an early train ride to Machu Picchu. It is literally just outside the door. The breakfast is nice with the option to have your eggs cook according to your liking. The room we got was big and comfortable. There was an issue with our booking with booking.com for the... More

We stayed here for three nights. We had a balcony room looking out over snow capped mountains. Wow. The room was tasteful and comfortable and we lived sitting on the balcony. It was great to have water provided. The Hotel is about a 10 minute walk out of town but if it's too hot to walk you can jump in... More

The staff were friendly and helpful. The experience was memorable and the restaurant was excellent. What more could you ask for. The views were spectacular and the grounds beautiful. We especially liked the Eucalyptus sauna which we reserved upon arrival. Make sure they bring you the right size robes though lol.

Quaint rooms in a beautiful garden setting. The rooms are close to the railroad tracks, but the trains do not run during the night so they did not disturb sleep. A wonderful breakfast is provided. Easy train access.

The hotel offers basic services plus nice touches like fresh flowers and purified water for free in the room. Lovely garden and excellent restaurant. But the standard rooms by the train station are small and dark with inadequate bathrooms. We were able to upgrade for one night to the balcony room. If I had this room for the whole time... More

We stayed at El Albergue for three nights at the beginning of our trip and it was such a great way to start our vacation. Everything about El Albergue was fantastic: the room was comfortable; the hotel was charming; the staff were helpful, friendly, and accommodating; the food at the restaurant was excellent and the location could not be better...
