“What a great little hotel! ”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights during our trip to Machu Picchu. The hotel itself has quite a history, and the buildings are quite old and interesting. The room we stayed in had creaky wood floors (didn't bother me, but maybe the manager in the office below!) and nice old windows and doors. The bathroom was quite good considering the age of the building.

There were paths through a garden leading to other rooms, full of flowers, plants and birds. Given its proximity to the train station (6 Feet out the front door) the train noise didn't bother us. When we got up early to catch the train, we basically had to go out the front door and we were there.

The hotel staff were wonderful and helpful, especially Sergio. They even purchased our tickets to Machu Picchu for us since we could not get the website to work properly from home.
The adjoining restaurant was some of the best food I have had in South America. The coffee shop makes a mean macchiato and has a proper machine. Good wine too. They prepared a box lunch for our trip up to Machu Picchu hat was enough food for the two of us.

I highly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay there again. Convenient, charming and a great value.

We stayed at El Alberque Hotel overnight after visiting Machu Picchu,
before our venture with the Sacred Valley. The hotel is right by the train
station and staffs are really helpful. The restaurant in the Hotel is
very good, offering very good food and music accompaniment.
The room is OK, but clean, at an excellent price.They also offer free WiFi.
Highly recommended.

I stayed here with my extended family and we all agreed this was a great hotel. The service, amenities, and rooms were great. We had a few glitches with our luggage and LAN Airlines and the hotel reception was extremely helpful with resolving the issue. We also loved the restaurant and had dinner there everynight. This was an exceptional hotel and we would love to stay here again.

This is, no doubt a great little hotel located right at the train station that takes people to Machu Picchu. It also has a great restaurant and the location is beautiful inside. We had an room in the old section that we really liked. Staff was helpful and friendly. Definitively a place to stay on the way to Aguascalientes. We did gave a little problem. Being at the train station, and having a room overlooking the rails we were afraid about noise. This was not a problem but our room was right above the restaurant and we had an annoying noise from loud music that turned out to be just below and played until very late. The place is nice enough for us to forget this and use it again but beware of the room above the restaurant or be ready to go down and ask for the music to stop at a reasonable hour. Overall I would recommend and use it again.

Stayed three nights in Febuary with a group of well traveled friends. We took full advantage of the services and experiences offered by the hotel. I highly recommend the lunch offered at the Inns' organic farm.Be sure to hire Paul and his trusted driver to tour you around the key sites. I particularly liked the town of Olly as a base. We felt safe and secure as we wandered around.The Train never bothered our nights sleep . Waking up to a magnificent view of the snow capped Andes was perfection!

Stayed here one night before trekking 4 days to Machu Picchu. Service was impeccable, location was surreal. Despite light rain, the setting was great. Dinner was delicious and the coffee house was a pleasure. Great attention to detail and excellent pisco sours for happy hour! Highly recommend!

From the booking to check-in to check-out, El Albergue is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The staff was extremely friendly, and always happy to help out. The room was large and clean, and had wonderful views of the valley and the Veronica Glacier. We enjoyed an afternoon tour of their farm with Christian.

In going the extra mile, El Albergue printed out our Machu Picchu tickets, as well as our airline boarding passes for when we had to leave. All in all, I can't recommend this place enough. Go visit!

Room Tip: Room 15 has a beautiful view.
