What a wonderful stay we had! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The owners were always walking the property making sure things are running smooth. Super comfortable beds, romantic setting, and the free eucalyptus sauna was amazing! I would I back to Ollanta just to stay there. Oh, and the restaurant was super good too!

Rated the hotel and staff excellent, we had room 16 which was tranquil and had beautiful views to the mountain. The trains, while you knew they were there, didn`t bother us at all (and i am a light sleeper.) The breakfast was delicious, and the staff worked hard to make sure we were well fed. The coffee was the best coffee i had tasted in all of Peru (and USA might I add!). The location was great too! The bottle of water each day was lovely.

The only downer was the tour they offered (and we subsequently accepted) was a complete rip off and cannot believe we stupidly fell for it! We were looking at ways of getting back to Cusco and they suggested taking a tour that goes through Moras Moray, the salt mines and chinchero at a price of $90, lasting 5 hours ending in Cusco. We assumed that at that price it would include a guide and entrance fees. To put it into context, we had been quoted $60 from a place elsewhere, but would be in a tour bus, so figured the extra $30 would cover the fact that we had a private driver/guide. Our driver barely spoke to us, i think as he assumed we only spoke English! Our trip only lasted 3.5 hours as we had no idea of the significance of Moras Moray, and the entrance fee to chichera was 130 soles, more than Macchu Pichu itself!

We had a clean comfortable room but were disappointed in the fact there was no bar fridge or tea and coffee making facilities in the room. After travelling through Sth America for the next four weeks we found that no rooms have fridges or tea and coffee making facilities, so be prepared. The floor creaked really badly overnight and if one of us got up to use the loo, the noise was that bad it woke the other person. The view from the room was wonderful, over looking snow covered mountains on one side and overlooking the garden from the outside balcony. We found that the Wifi only worked if we were out on the balcony. The breakfast was very good but we found the food in the restrauant to be average for the price. The staff were all really friendly and very helpful. The garden was beautiful and really restful after a long day of site seeing. It was a great location for catching the train to Aquas Calientes. For a couple of oldies we did find the walk up the hill to the town a bit of a struggle each day. And of course if you didn't want to eat and the restrauant in the Hotel everyday you had to make that trip back up the hill. The upside was that is away from the constant dust, and the noise of the hundreds of buses and cars that pass through the town everyday.

El Albergue and Ollantaytambo where both such huge surprises to us, maybe because we didn't expect much and because it was just so charming and beautiful! El Albergue was a highlight in our trip and the best hotel we stayed in for our whole trip. I would go back there any day and stay for a week! I also think for the little bit extra, stay in a suite, totally worth every sent. You would never guess that there is such an amazing place just inside the train station. I really cannot recommend it highly enough. Also don't miss out on the amazing wood stove sauna, something special. We also had dinner at the restaurant and had a wonderful meal. Ollantaytambo and El Albergue stole our hearts! The staff was also very helpful and extremely friendly. Thank you for such an amazing time.

Room Tip: Rather pay a bit more and stay in one of the suites or bigger rooms.

The first two nights we stayed in room 15, a superior balcony room. It was absolutely beautiful, clean, super comfortable bed, great wifi, lots of hot water, darkness at night (heavy shutters to block early sun), and excellent view. You can't avoid train noises from 5:30am to 10pm, but it wasn't obnoxious. The birds woke us up.

After Machu Picchu, we arrived at 8pm and checked into standard room #4 to save $20 USD. We were also getting up early for our return to Cusco, so the standard room seemed like an ok choice. It was like night and day. There was a balcony - directly over the train line. The room shook when the trains came and left. Noise (talking) started at 4:30am. Floor was sticky, no hot water at night, and shower was tiny. wifi did not work.

Would we have done it again to save $20? No.

Breakfast was good on all days. We had dinner on the first night and the food was pretty good. Restaurant service was great.

Service from the front desk was not helpful when we asked about help setting up guides and excursions that they advertised - so come prepared.

Overall - the location can't be beat - to be able to get off the train, hungry, tired, and dirty - and have a place to crash - was comforting.
