“Grand Memories”
Reviewed 28 April 2008

Ollantaytambo will always have a special place in our hearts due to the gracious staff and fun location of this hostal. We loved the location of our room with the balcony overlooking the trains and enjoyed watching the comings and goings of the vendors and the passengers. After a long flight from Miami, it was a pleasure to see our names held on a board by the taxi driver sent by El Albergue. Our first impressions of the Peruvian countryside were enhanced by the relaxing drive to Ollantaytambo and helped set the tone for our entire 18 day visit.

I just wanted to add my two cents worth that this was probably the nicest places I stayed in my 3 weeks in Peru. No not the fanciest, but clean, comfortable, friendly, and a nice retreat from the crowds further down the tracks near Machu Pichu and Cusco. Highly recommend!

Stayed October 2007

Just finished reading several reviews, and don't understand why no one commented on the sauna. It was a totally unexpected pleasure. A lovely memory for all the senses, including the scent of eucalyptus leaves.

  • Liked — Simplicity no TV, etc. Sound of Urubamba River, just outside my window.
  • Disliked — Can't think of anything
