Hotel Pakaritampu, located a few meters away from the Peru Rail train station is a very nice hotel. The staff was helpful and somewhat friendly, though they didn’t seem to speak much English. The buildings are orange colored, with a few separate bungalows, housing 4 or 5 rooms on each of their two floors. The rooms have hardwood floors, and a nice big bed, modern flat-screen TV with lots of channels in English. Views of the mountain from the rooms are good. The hotel has beautiful, colorful flowers all over the grounds – so, it’s very pretty. The hotel doesn’t have heating in its rooms, but they have nice big comforters to sleep in. Also, our visit was in May, so the temperature in Ollantaytambo wasn’t cold. Apparently, it’s the most expensive hotel in town, but it was still well priced at $135 U.S.D. One word of caution - we had dinner at the hotel restaurant – the place had no ambience and felt like a funeral parlor. The food was mediocre, except for their quinoa soup – that was delicious. The restaurant was also kind of expensive. Not knowing what other restaurants were available nearby, we just opted for the hotel restaurant, but we probably should’ve ventured out. The hotel itself, though, and its rooms were very nice – so I’d recommend this hotel.
