“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

This hotel has checks all the boxes for a mid-range hotel. The rooms offer hair dryers, hot showers and heat (ask for a heater) which are all great on cold nights. There are also tvs with satellite but internet and satellite are spotty in the valley. The grounds are really well tended with thoughtful touches like fresh flowers, vaulted wood ceilings and some rooms with inca walls. The hotel is very clean and the people are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good with eggs to order. The hotel is in sight of the Ollantaytambo ruins and a very short walk from the plaza. This is a really great little town and great hotels. We extended our stay.

We stayed here two nights as our launching point for Machu Picchu. It was nice. I liked how they had accommodations for a family of 4. They even provided breakfast for us when we needed to catch the 6:10 train to Machu Picchu. The breakfast was good and they had WiFi. It was not the most dependable, but it was enough to check e-mail. Sometime it was a little hard to make Skype calls. The rooms were fine. They were clean and they sufficed for what we needed. The street could get a little noisy, especially if you want to go to sleep early to sleep in late. The little courtyard was nice and quaint. They are close to the Temple of Ollantaytambo and a short walk to the train station. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed in Tikawasi last May 3-5, 2014. My room was at 3rd floor, with a very beautiful view of the archeological site which are just few steps away from this hotel. The location is excellent. The service is excellent. My room is spacious. Breakfast was good. Nothing I could ask for, really!

But the real deal was Shelly, the friendliest and most helpful person ever. She recommended the best restaurants in town, she helped me with my itineraries, she arranged my luggage to be transported to Cusco as I cannot bring them in Aguas Calientes, and so much more. Shelly became my hero in Ollantaytambo, and I was very grateful that she works for Tikawasi. The hotel alone made my first Sacred Valley destination memorable, but Shelly served as a cherry on top of my very beautiful and sweet stay in Ollanta.

You should stay in Takawasi if ever you are stopping at Ollantaytambo. Everyone in this hotel are friendly and nice people. If ever I would be given a chance to visit Peru again, I will make sure to find ways to visit Tikawasi and Shelly once again.

This delightful little hotel is in an amazing place in the Sacred Valley. The Inca ruins can be seen from the courtyard and some of the hotel walls are Incan.

Noises from the neighboring room carried but the music station provided a remedy for that. We are not bilingual and would have been more comfortable with some English ability at the front desk.

The transportation arranged for us from Cusco and back was excellent and perfectly timed. So grateful for the hotel arranging that!

Our family of 4 stayed recently stayed at this hotel. It was perfect. We were able to drop off our luggage the day before we stayed as we were staying in AC for the night before Machu Picchu. Our luggage was waiting in our room when we arrived. The staff went out of their way for us. When our horseback riding tour did not show, a staff member brought me to the tourism office. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was good. The ruins are a 2 minute walk and the train to Machu Picchu is a 10 minute walk. I would definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Tikawasi Valley Hotel. I was traveling with my three adult daughters. The hotel arranged for our taxis to and from Cusco. The drivers were prompt, reliable and reasonably priced. In fact, our flight out of Cusco was at 7:00 a.m. and so our taxi was at the hotel at 4:30 a.m. sharp!

The staff was pleasant and very accommodating. The rooms were clean and well kept. The humidity caused the bathrooms to be a bit damp smelling, but that was not from a lack of cleanliness. Remember, the hotel is situated on original Inca ruins. Very charming and historic. It is near the market, church and the Ollantaytambo Temple ruins. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here one night in triple room on our return from MachuPichu. It is about 10 minutes walk from the train station.
We arrived at night and the walk was in a dark road.
We were so surprised in the morning that we were spot on the Inca site.
The hotel is very nice and the staff are helpful.
We found it very convince to break the return from MachuPichu , by overnight here, walk the Inca site from the hotel, and visit the Sacred valley on the way back to Cusco
