This is one of those hotels where a rating can never do justice in summarizing what you will experience. Its one of those properties that straddles the lines between charming and modern, "green" vs. comfortable, convenient vs. noisy. we stayed here twice, once on the way to macchu Picchu and again on the way back. The Property is indeed charming,... More

I knew the hotel was at the train station but turning the corner and realizing it was literally the train station was a fantastic surprise! The hotel is cozy and quaint, the rooms warm and welcoming with their white walls and dark wood, creeky floors, with fabulous doors. All adding to the old charm of this unique property. It was...

Having read that the hotel was on the station we had some trepidation that this could be noisy However it had loads of character and the rooms and rear courtyard were full of charm and set in lovely gardens The restuarant was the best we ate in throughout our trip to Peru

We had a great stay at El Albergue for two nights. Family of 5 with two rooms (grandmother, two parents, and two teenagers (ages 18 and 15)). The rooms were interesting architecturally, and beds were comfortable. Easy to book online and we took one double and one triple, The location was great, with easy walking to town, but right by...

We loved staying at the hotel -- the restaurant was really good and the rooms large and clean. But the hit of our trip was the Pachamanca lunch -- which we were initially nervous about, since as vegetarians we were only assured "there would be potatoes and salad." It turned out to be a magnificent meal, with so many vegetarian... More

A beautiful oasis on the train platform !! Perfect spot for hopping on the train to Machupicchu. Lovely, charming, comfortable room with a balcony overlooking fabulous gardens where we spotted hummingbirds !! Very friendly and helpful staff, despite being very busy.

Location is perfect for catching the train to Machu Picchu (Aguascalientes). It's a short taxi ride or 15 minute walk to Ollantaytambo centre which is has a major Inca Archaeological site and a tourist market. Theres also a pleasant town square. We had a room with a small terrace which was lovely for sitting outside and admiring the lovely garden.... More

Stayed for one night on our way to Machu Pichu. Excellent location right on the railway platform. But the room was disappointing. The door wouldn't close properly and there was hardly any ventilation. Both the room and bathroom was small, not much room for two individuals to manoeuvre around. Having missed our lunch, the gourmet restaurant was not able to... More

Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear your found the room small. As the Standard rooms are in a building that is almost 100 years old, we do our best to make these rooms as comfortable as possible. We are glad you found solace in the gardens. More

We had a lovely romantic stay for one night. We only had the standard rooms, which means right by the station. Our teenage children had the train spotters room and still had a reasonable nights sleep. Our room was comfortable with fresh flowers, water and fruit and although we were awake early still had a reasonable nights sleep too. Trains... More
