Stayed here two nights while in Ollanta. Cozy is definitely a word to be used, small would be another. The price was right though. Clean. Breakfast was good, but basic. Nice view of the ruins, out our window. Was a little tough to find in the dark, from the plaza, but we did it. Power went out during our last...

Myself, partner and adult son shared the family room which is set slightly on its own looking out at the Inca ruins. We loved everything about this place; the staff, the breakfast, the views, the pretty flowers and plants around the rooms/garden and of course the resident cat who spent many a day and night with us. If we ever...

Arrived late at night, had many cobblestone steps to climb up to get to hotel BUT it was well worth it when we checked into our room #6. Away from the other rooms, a little garden, and a beautiful view of the ruins. We were so busy with touring, we do wish we could have had a day to truly...

We stayed two nights in this hostal with our three girls (14, 12 and 9). The location is amazing, you see the terraces of the ruins of ollantaytambo through your window. The rooms are cozy, they are clean and decorated with local themes and with so much love. This was perfect, especially because of "pichi" the non-tail cat of the...

Great hostel, very quirky. Would stay here again, in a quiet area but then I think this town was fairly quiet. Did us a packed breakfast and arranged for a taxi to meet us in Cuzco at 9.30pm after the train had been cancelled due to a strike and we had to travel from Puno by bus, later than planned....

Hotel is located a bit off the main square, with no car access. Not a huge deal, but we were uninformed and had to leave the cab and carry or fairly heavy bags quite a way through the cobblestone streets. Again, not a big deal had we been told. Once there, the staff was very pleasant. Even went so far...

The hotel is a few minutes walk from the main square. It's a quaint little hotel with only around 7 rooms with a fab view of the archeological park. We stayed in room 5, the room was small but clean and adequate with a private bathroom. We heard some noise from the neighbouring residential property on the first evening but...

This is a seven-room hotel with great views and great service. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We stayed here on two different occasions and loved this place both times. The breakfast, views, and well-groomed gardens were special.

Hostal Iskay was a great place to stay in Sacred Valley overnight. It is extremely close to the Ollantaytambo ruins, as well as to nearby restaurants/markets. The train stop to Aguas Calientes is also a short drive away, though I believe that might be walkable as well. The rooms were small but comfortable. They were clean and beds comfortable. The...

We started our Peru vacation here, spending 3 nights before visiting Machu Picchu and then spending our return night here, before heading off to Cusco. Room 6 is lovely. Terrific view of ruins, and feels like your own little bungalow, with a private walkway and outdoor seating area. The location is wonderful as well - just a few blocks from...
