“Great Place to Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

Located steps from the train platform, this is a comfortable and well located hotel to base out of in the Sacred Valley before visiting MP. Rooms are very comfortable, restaurant is excellent and staff friendly. Stayed here three nights and found enough to do in the immediate environs to keep busy for two days before heading to MP. Left our main luggage here and then picked it up a day later on returning to Cusco. Highly recommend.

A really lovely hotel and right on the platform. Just right for the early start to Macchu Picchu.
The hotel has its own organic small holding and we were shown round by a really helpful member of staff. The food in the restaurant was very reasonable, different and really tasty. Well worth eating there if you're not staying at the hotel. Reserve a table.

The rooms were very comfortable (a great view of the mountains going up to MP from our one)

It can be a bit noisy with the trains trundling in and out but what do you expect at a station with tourists moving about. The last train seemed to be about 11:00 but they are off early in the morning (5:30).

Room Tip: Upstairs towards the back

Lovely albergue-countryside interior yet elegant and 100% genuine feeling. Good service, lovely rooms (mine was facing a quiet field).
Charming restaurant with an entertaining argentinian waiter. Amazing quisine- organic veggies and great pisco sours-of course!

Do your selfes a favour and stay there. Have a glass of whine and watch the old trains outside the restaurant.

I'm definitely going back!

The best hotel in Ollantaytambo. The restaurant inside the hotel is amazing. The breakfast was delicious and included. The location is perfect. It's right on the train platform. Very convenient if you're taking the train to Aguas Calientes to go to Macchu Picchu. Excellent service. My only complaint is that it can get noisy. Ask for a room on the second floor.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second level.

We spent two nights, and were so happy to be there! The decor was artsy and charming. The beds were comfortable and immaculate. The restaurant was one of the best we had on our trip, and prices were reasonable. Sergio and Natalie were especially helpful, answering many emails, storing our luggage, helping sort out a problem with a double booking, and just being cheerful and making you feel so welcome and at home.

We spent one night in this quaint hotel on our way back from Machu Picchu. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the room could not be beat for tranquility and comfort. The only reproach I have is that the excellent restaurant fell a bit short during breakfast. Other than that it was perfect.

Room Tip: We had room number 14 at the end of the garden. Very quite and lovely.

We stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved it. Our room had a veranda where we were able to sit and catch the last of the day's sun (and see a humming bird). All the hotel staff were helpful and polite, in particular Sergio and Natalie. Sergio was extremely helpful sorting out transport and tickets for us. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was absolutely delicious made with really fresh ingredients. We ate in the restaurant one night too and that was excellent. The cheesecake is to die for.

Room Tip: Ask for room 15 or 16
