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.

It is probably one of the most charming hotel I ever stayed in. It's situated on a railway platform, to gain access you need to roll your suitcases through the ticket barrier and along the platform - which makes you feel you are entering the world of Harry Potter. Once inside, you are surrounded by magical gardens full of exotic Peruvian plants and flowers. The balconies are carved wood, the rooms are spacious, the bathrooms supplied with air-freshener - a bucket full of aromatic green leaves which smell vaguely like basil. The whole place is like that - unexpected, charming and a bit magical. They have their own farm, a coffee plot and a restaurant cooking amazing food. The staff are friendly, there's a sauna, you can book massage, and when you are ready to board your train to Machu Picchu, you just roll out your suitcase and you are on the platform! What a place, book a room there without hesitation! There's no railways noise in the rooms.

This hotel is amazing. Right in the train station with great rooms. Restaurant has delicious food and the customer service could not be better. Hotel manager Miguel was beyond kind. Make sure to take advantage of the bikes they have and their farm! Couldn’t have asked for a better stay!

This creatively restored railway station and compound is the perfect launchpad for any number of adventures in the Sacred Valley. We loved the balcony room with view on the lush garden and the volcano that dominates the valley. Rustic but tastefully luxe furnishings in the rooms - excellent shower and bathroom area - lots of little touches that make a hotel special. The dining room offerings, at breakfast and other meals, is outstanding. The staff is friendly and very helpful. And El Albergue staff will organize your Machu Picchu adventure, or explorations into the Sacred Valley - with excellent drivers and guides. Their packed lunches are also outstanding. We wish we could have stayed for months!
