Great hotel in beautiful train station. Superb restaurant uses organic ingredients farmed on inca terraces. Ollantaytambo is an inca town that is inhabited to this day with ancient city layout and architecture. Incredible dances on feast days. Wonderful experience. Highlight of our trip.

This hotel which is located at the train station was so much more than we expected. The gardens with hidden seating areas, hammocks under the trees and an abundance of flowers, some we recognized many we didn't, was lovely. We also visited their farm where they grow produce for the restaurant and raise chickens, turkeys, pigs, rabbits & Guinean pigs....

When we stepped off the train and opened the door to El Albergue, we had no idea that we were stepping into a magical garden with such amazing food. Our room was simply decorated and clean. I loved their farm across the lane, so this is truly a farm to table experience. The breakfast was included and delicious. The location...

This stopover on the way in and out of Machu Picchu is an absolute jewel. An old house on right at the train station, it is so convenient; but more than that is is wonderfully maintained with old wood and stain. The rooms are very comfortable, the food in the restaurant extraordinary and the service and attention impeccable. It makes...

Perfectly located for discovering the Sacred Valley and the start of our four day trek in the Andes to MacchuPichu. The rooms were clean, restaurant very good and the staff super friendly. The organic garden lunch in the grounds of the hotel was magnificent!

Overall, the hotel was very nice. The restaurant was great for dinner and lunch. The hotel gardens were huge and the head gardener was very nice to give us a tour of the farm and animals. Our room, while nice, was incredibly loud (room #2). Even though the trains don't start until 5:30, the loud noise started around 4am with...

The good part was the restaurant staff chef and food. Absolutely fabulous! It was a fantastic reasonably priced gourmet experience. The chef in this small restaurant was very skilled and passionate about his food. The rooms were very nice as well and the grounds and garden lovely The bad. Some of the front desk staff seemed terribly annoyed that you...

Have you ever stayed in a hotel at an old fashioned train station?Rooms and gardens to die for plus an organic kitchen garden with all sorts of animals,flowers, vegetables and herbs.What about watching 10 super cute suckling piglets,cuys and lama's?Plus an excellent chef and in my opinion the best breakfast granola ever!
