I picked the hotel based upon TA reviews. I spent 3 nights and was delighted with my choice. My room was second floor and very good. The hostess was wonderful. Breakfast was essentially to order. The location was great. A very very pleased guest.
We stayed here for a couple of nights before heading to Machu Picchu by train. This place is very close to some ruins, a market, and the main square. It is also a pretty close walk to the train station. The room itself had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Staff was super friendly and helpful! We had to leave before breakfast was served, but when we told the woman at the desk the night before she was able to have someone prepare a bagged breakfast for us!
This hotel was perfect for us. We had two rooms for four people. We stopped in Ollantaytambo to acclimate before our trip to Machu Picchu as it was a few thousand feet lower than Cusco. We spent 2 nights here. Catta helped us so much! She arrange a private taxi for us to take us to ruins and a weaving demonstration. Also, the salt mines. He toured us around for 8 hours. Perfect day. Our train ride was early before breakfast, so Catta packed us all bag snacks to take with us. Also, she stored our luggage for our return and arranged our taxi ride back to Cusco. She was great and the town was great. We wished we had booked the extra night prior to the trip to Cusco.
This hotel was wonderful. Such a great location handy to the ruins, main square, train station and cafes/restaurants. It was very clean and tidy and provided an excellent breakfast plus very good coffee. On our early morning departure to Machu Picchu they even packed a breakfast for us. The staff were excellent, very helpful, friendly and assisted with taxi day trip bookings. I would highly recommend this place if you are after a clean and tidy basic budget hotel. We stayed 3 nights and it was an excellent place to base ourselves in the Sacred Valley.
Our three-day stay in this budget small hotel could not have been better. We occupied two rooms facing a small street only a short distance away from the Temple of Sun and main square. Ollantaytambo has a special atmosphere of a small town frequented by both tourists and locals. We used it as our base after the visit of Cusco and Pisac, and took trips to Maras and Moray from there as well. Locally we visited Temple of the Sun, hiked on our own to the ruins on the other side of town, and took a Peruvian cooking class. Every evening we enjoyed walking through the lively central square and the quiet streets lined with old stone walls above it. As the town lays on the railway line from Cusco to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu) it was easy to head out to our trek on Inca Trail from there as well. Dona Catta staff prepared excellent breakfast including coffee and eggs made to order every day and for our early start day they prepared a boxed breakfast for 5:20 a.m. As long as you understand that the hotel provides simple, clean, basic hotel accommodation you will love your stay there. We certainly did.…
