Beautiful room, clean bathroom, and a great view of mountains from the balcony. It's a short walking distance through the hotel's back gate to the farm where they grow their vegetables served in their restaurant. Food is gret there for breakfast & dinners. The courtyard is quiet & calming surrounded by flowering trees & shrubs with visits from songbirds &... More

My wife and I loved this place! It is small with only 12 rooms but if you are lucky enough to get a second floor room you will wake to incredible views. From the minute you walk in you are well taken care of. The rooms ARE basic, they remind me of a summer cottage, which is part of the... More

Stayed one night here on our way to Machu Picchu. The staff was helpful and pleasant from the moment we booked our reservations. Very quick to respond and answer any questions that we had. The hotel is small and charming as it was actually part of the train station. You could hear the trains now and then but nothing that... More

The rooms are VERY BASIC. Just a bed with a squeaky floor. Reminds me of a hostel, with a private bath.Bathroom is very clean but reminds me of the showers at LA Fitness. The only product available is a gel that serves as shampoo and body wash. Even though its right next to the train tracks, the other hotels in... More

This was probably my favorite stay in Peru. The room was very comfortable & spacious and the gardens are beautiful. Also enjoyed wandering through & admiring their organic farm. Excellent breakfast included as well. Highly recommend!

This hotel was so much fun to stay in being part of the train station. I loved the bar as it was right on the platform in an old fashioned station restaurant. It was amazing to have a beer and watch the trains and passengers going to and from Machu Picchu. The restaurant was behind the bar and food and... More

Chose here as the best hotel in Ollantaytambo according to TripAdvisor. Overall it was OK but the room was a bit more primitive than I was expecting. The bed was hard, the décor was whitewash walls and wooden floors, the door lock was a padlock and wasn’t the easiest to operate. There were also two cobwebs in the bathroom with... More

The hotel is wonderful, sitting right off the train platform for the trains that travel to Machu Picchu. The restaurant was excellent, and the staff was wonderful. The central garden was gorgeous and the room had deck chairs overlooking it, which was a nice added touch.
