We stayed for 1 night in Sauce hostal in 2010 September. The location is excellent with great views of the ruins and is very close to the entrance of the market. The manager was very courteous and gave us good service. We had slight difficulty in getting to the train station next day since the cab was late, but our manager ran around and got our cab just in time. The rooms are basic but have a nice character to them. I would go and stay there again. Ollantaytambo ruins were fantastic!

I stayed at this hotel prior to meeting our group for the Inca Trail Trek. The rooms are small, accomodations are clean, basic and comfortable. The location can't be beat. The breakfast was good. The rooms have heaters. My only complaints are that it took a long time for the hot water to work- it eventually did but I had to run the water in the shower for a long time first and the coffee could have been brewed differently- they use instant coffee

This is a very small basic Hostel \ Hotel, it was very clean, and very comfortable, Unfortunately I only had a very brief overnight stay here after a trip to the local Inca Ruins.

the food and hospitality was very good and the Small team of staff were very helpful and friendly.

The town square is a thirty second walk away and the market a two minute walk so excellent location.

I would highly recomend this hotel if you want peace and quiet

The location of this hotel is pretty hard to beat. I've stayed here several times. It's clean and comfortable, with nice down comforters to keep you warm at night. Located right downtown and within a few minutes walk of restaurants and ruins. This is my go-to hotel in Ollantaytambo.

This place was clean. The rooms were a little small (for 4 people) but there was hot water. The breakfast is included is comparable to most places we stayed. It is a 10 min walk from the train and a 3 minute walk from the Plaza de Armas. The person at the front desk speaks clear English. There is free (very slow, but free) wifi. All you can ask for in a place like this, though it was a tad pricier than other places.

We really enjoyed our stay at this charming little hotel. The room was clean, spacious, comfortable, had plenty of hot water. Our window (and the restaurant) had a great view of the ruins, and also of the little square below where the vendor ladies sold breakfast and snacks to the school kids and workers in the morning. Fun to watch. Breakfast was excellent, exceptional breads and what tasted like homemade jams.
It's very convenient to the ruins, and also to the main square with several choices for dinner. Note the trade-off for that room in the front, you're on the main street through town. One would not expect that this little street is the main route for large trucks serving the gas fields many miles away, so it was pretty noisy well into the night. A room away from the front would be much quieter.

Room Tip: Rooms closest to the street are noisy from truck traffic.
