Reviewed April 9, 2013

Tucked away in the corner of the village, the hotel has absolutely breathtaking views of the valley, the river, the snow-capped mountains and the terraced fields - we could see all four from our bay window.
The most stunning outlook to wake-up with, even surpassed Halong Bay, which says something.

Incredible VFM as well, helpful staff - the only possible tiny downside was that a couple of the reception staff spoke v little English - but then, maybe I should be able to speak more Spanish

Superb - infinitely better value then The Colca Lodge (3 x the price and a much inferior location)

Room Tip: Take a book, sit on the edge of the valley in the sun and just watch three hours disappear in the mo...

we stayed in the Eco in Colca, in Yanque, peru. They use Eco for: no services, there was no hot water, no tv and the food was no even palatable. Don't go there, it is terrible. What more can I say? Not even a store near, on pigs and sheeps on the street. This is not tipic, it is absolutetly not sutetable for tourist.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with an alcove with windows, they have a great view.

Beautifully designed and very comfortable little eco-lodge overlooking the Colca valley in the small Yanque village with stunning location and sights. If you like quiet places from where to explore, this is worth a couple of days, with a very interesting little museum and hot springs/swimming pool in walking distance. Service was fine, breakfast offering a good choice of local bread and cheese, Internet is available in the restaurant. Definitely a place to return to, as is the whole Valle del Colca, with more time to walk around rather than being driven through in the normal tourism minibuses...

This hotel was adequate for the one night we stayed in the Colca Valley. The staff were not very friendly. We got to the room and it was quite cold, though a space heater was provided. The room had a double bed and a loft upstairs with two single beds. The loft felt unstable going up the ladder. After the hot water barely trickled out of the sink, we checked the shower and the hot water didn’t go on at all. We went back to the front desk and told us we had to leave it on for awhile before it would start. This was the case, but that would have been good to tell us before we went to the room or they could put a sign in the bathroom. We ate dinner at the hotel and the communication was difficult even though we speak enough Spanish to get by. The meals were pleasant, although the Lomo Saltado had no French fries, which was odd. It was also amusing that listed under their vegetarian options was a ham and cheese sandwich. 4 Soles seemed like a lot for water given the price everywhere else. Overall, the room worked, but I wouldn’t stay again.

If you are aware of the hotel standards in these rural areas like we were, you will be amazingly surprised of the value of it. It is not perfect, but it is the place to stay for its location, comfort, cleanliness and service. One of our rooms was room 102 as mentioned in previous reviews with a view of the mountains and river. It was breathtaking. We had a very good sleep and hot shower in the morning. Breakfast was very good and varied, but it ends early, at 8:30. Check out is at 10 a.m. (1 hour earlier than the rest of the region).
We decided to stay for dinner since there is not much as an option in Yanque and while the food was delicious and well-presented, the portions were rather small. Order the corn cream; it was amazing. We also ordered, alpaca steak and it was delicious as well.

Room Tip: Select a room with a view of the river.

A beautiful place, much more charming than our usual budget stays. The view from our bungalow, room 102 was amazing. The room is very large, with a double downstairs and two singles on the upper floor. There was a plug in electric heater, plenty of extra blankets, fluffy towels, toiletries and plenty of hot water in the large bathroom.
A varied buffet breakfast is served early in the morning.

We dined at the restaurant that evening, it was just okay, the menu is 35 soles. There are not many options in Yanque, we didn't want to leave the hotel. Friendly service, we would have liked to stay a second night however we were just on an overnight trip from Arequipa, see separate review for "ride in peru" under attractions.

We stayed here for one night with my family (10people) on our way to Colca. The place is beautiful, tranquil and rustic, but the service leaves a lot to be desired. There was no water in some of the rooms, the hot water took 5minutes to heat, our door handle was faulty and one of the staff entered our room while we were sleeping by mistake. You almost get the feeling that the hotel is slowly being abandoned.
