El Albergue was a beautiful hotel and the location couldn't be beat. Our room was spacious and clean with a small balcony overlooking a beautiful garden. It was the perfect retreat after hiking the ruins. The location on the train tracks is amazing for early morning training to Aquas Calientes and Machu Picchu, and there is a path through the back garden that is a short cut into town. The staff were really helpful in arranging transportation and answering questions and the restaurant was some of the best food we had on the trip.

Room Tip: The hotel overlooks the train station and tracks, so rooms in the back overlooking the garden are great!

This hotel offers a great and convent location. If you a traveling to Machu Picchu early in the morning to spend the day at one of the greatest places in earth, this is perfect hotel! It is located right at the train station... no possibility of being late for the train. Breakfast is wonderful! Service is excellent and it is located within walking distance from Ollantaytambo ruins (10 mins walk). If you like art be sure to check out Juan's art studio right next to the Chocolate museum (about 4 or 5 stores to the right) at the Ollantaytambo Plaza. Enjoy The Sacred Valley!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the front door are quieter!

We decided to spend a night in Ollantaytambo on our trip back from Machu Picchue to Cusco. This hotel was right next to the train station. When you get off the train the entrance is literally right next to the tracks to your right. The hotel was clean and well maintained. That night we ended up taking a shower in another room because the shower in our room was not working properly. But otherwise the room was spacious and comfortable. Also your stay at this hotel comes with a complimentary breakfast which was very good.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor but I would recommend requesting a second floor with a good view out to the mountain.

Very cozy and atmospheric hotel. The rooms are clean, good beds. There is an electric heater in the room. Keep in mind that the building is old and if you stay on the ground floor, you might hear squeaky floors above you. There is no TV in the room (who needs TV in such a beautiful place?) There is bottled water in the room free of charge. The best part of the hotel is the location. It is conveniently located inside the train station, so when you travel to Machu Picchu early in the morning, all you have to do is just get out of the hotel door and jump in the train. The breakfast was quite good and the staff spoke fluent English. I was a bit concerned with the noise from the trains, because early in the evening you could hear trains passing by once in awhile. Fortunately, the trains stop for the night, so it is quiet when you need your sleep.

We were here for Christmas eve prior to going to Machhu Picchu following morning. There are some lovely garden rooms which are very comfortable, clean, spacious and have all the facilities you could want . The hotel is/was the railway station and parts of the restaurant overlook it. The staff are very friendly and helpful and make the whole experience very enjoyable. We had a lovely meal with the Peruvian speciality of guinea pig -worth trying once! (Along with numerous Asian and central European 'special delicacies' I have sampled) with some excellent wine. Atmosphere was great and it is enjoyable watching trains arrive and set off -reminds one of the era great European train travel such as the Golden Arrow -sadly no more.The hotel is just down the road from the ruins which are worth a visit -time your visit to avoid large coach parties.
As we were leaving early to catch train to Machhu Picchu location was ideal - we rolled out of bed,collected our breakfast (hotel kindly provides this for early train) and straight on to train. Trains from here get to Machhu Pichhu first so you can there before the crowds.
Overall an excellent,comfortable stay in a lovely location. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Garden room -with balcony if staying for a few days.
