Our trip guide booked this place for lunch, because we had requested the typical dish of Pachamanca. Oscar, the farm manager, and his staff didn't disappoint. The had the stones ready for cooking by when we arrived and after 20 mins of getting all the food covered with the stones, we had an awesome meal of chicken, lamb, pork and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 February 2017

A bit of a later review was there in December 2014, but never too late, this place is unforgetable. When you first get off the train it looks like you're about to enter the station, that really worried me - and then it is a restaurant, then you go through the garden full of flowers and roses and hummingbirds. I...

Spacious room, with shutters. Lots of useful wall pegs! Bathroom tired, sink made of rough grey material made to resemble rock - very impractical. Pretty gardens with view of snow capped mountains. Restaurant, and useful little cafe. Breakfast ok - cold buffet & eggs to order. Right next to train station so no need to rush if you're catching the...

My husband and I stayed here 5/5-5/7/17. Cost of our superior double room with balcony was $437.80 for the 2 nights. I booked this in August 2016 through booking.com. This is a very popular property so my advice is to book ahead if you decide to stay here. This property is located right as you exit the train. Check in...

We stayed for 1 night on way to Aquas Cailientes. Right on station platform so great for catching train in morning. Beautiful & comfortable room set in lovely gardens with views of the mountains. Restaurant was excellent for evening meal & breakfast was best of our whole trip. Friendly helpful staff.

Very pleasant stay , recomended. Lay out of rooms was welcoming and the gardens complemented the accommodation well, making the whole staf pleasant. The food at dinner and breakfast was good, they can provide gluten free bread if you give at least 24 hours notice.

A friend and I stayed at the El Albergue for 4 nights. It seemed most guests stay for 1-2 nights, as a stay over before heading to Machu Picchu, but or stay let us really take in Ollantaytambo and all the magic it holds. Julia was amazingly helpful and knows so very much about the location. The staff were all...

Very nice place to stay with your family. Good environment, food, and very nice staff. I enjoyed my experience here. The only issue I had was that the wifi is extremely slow. Other than that, I have not complaints.

This hotel is very unique-it's at a train station and how many times do you get to do that?! I would recommend this hotel as it is very convenient when arriving or departing by train and the main part of town is not too far. The grounds are very pretty and they brought in fresh greenery into our room everyday....
