“Nice place to stay a night”
Reviewed 11 April 2010

I was only here one night and it was a pleasant stay. This is a good location if you arrive and depart by train however I came by bus (while the railway was closed for repairs) so there was a 10 minute walk from the town centre which became a bit tedious. Breakfast was good.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff was very professional and attentive. The room was clean, comfortable and had lots of hot water available. The restaurant food was great and we enjoyed breakfast in bed every morning. We will be back!

We were provided with excellent service. Gabriela was so helpful in answering our many questions about train and ticket issues for Machu Picchu. The room was somewhat plain but it had a huge comfortable bed and we overlooked the lovely garden. The hotel is in a great location if you plan to take the train to Machu Picchu. Unfortunately, the train was not running from this stop while we were there. We had a delicious dinner one night and the chef made us a very tasty box lunch to take with us the next day on our trip to Machu Picchu. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel.

I recommend spending a few nights at this hotel to enjoy their wonderful food, sauna, and relaxing atmosphere. The experience with other hotels in the valley varied dramatically. The people at El Albergue make you feel truly welcomed. Although the internet connection is a little difficult to figure out, everything else was awesome. We spent 28 days in Peru, and our 3 nights at this hotel were the best!

Probably one of the nicer places in Ollay, but nothing to rave about.
Nice family run business

El Albergue has clean rooms with heaters and warm blankets (you need these in June-Aug) Good breakfast and excellent restaurant as well as a nice expresso bar for caffiene addicts like me. If you are noise sensitive try to get an upper floor room away from train station as the wood structure means you hear footsteps from room above.

The library and sitting areas are welcoming with some good resources. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Convenience to the train to Aguas Calientes (right out the door) is a plus. You need to carry your luggage for some way (about equal to a city block) from the gate to the station (vehicles cannot pass this point) to the hotel so be forwarned.

One night became three, and I could tell you that, things really work there. From the whole deco perspective to the great restaurant in it, the rustic sauna, the bed, the backyard, the people and the peace.... No noise (and the first room we got, was right in front of the station) and no bugging of any kind. Great shower, great views, and easy access to the surrondings.
