I immediately felt in love with Ollantaytambo and with Apu Lodge, so I stayed here for 6 days after my trip to Machu Picchu. Louise and her friendly staff make you really feel like at home. The village is really unique, you get an idea of how it was to live in an Inka village.
The view from Apu Lodge onto the village is fantastic and the whole location is nice and peacefull. No cars, a lot of fresh air and just the sound of water running down the alley. You can enjoy the sun in the lovely garden, the rooms are very clean and decorated with art from local artists. Carlos can help you to organize your trip to Machu Picchu.
I can highly recommand this hotel as well as the whole nice little village of Ollantaytambo with excellent restaurants. You should not waste your money in any of these anonymous 5 star hotels in the sacred valley, but rather make a donation to one of the social and community projects and stay in Apu Lodge.
