After an afternoon exploring Ollantaytambo ruins and a walk up to the main square, we found the beautiful hillside gardens a lovely haven off the narrowish main road from the town to the railway station. It was reassuring to know that our early train the next morning was such a short walk from the hotel. Our room was quite dark but comfortable. As it was October but not yet very cold, we wondered how room temperature was controlled during summer and winter because there seemed to be no fixed heating or cooling fixtures. Bathroom toiletries on our single night were just adequate. On arrival, we booked an early morning wakeup call which was not provided. When asked why this didn't happen, there was no response from the staff.
We decided not to walk back up to the main town square for dinner and found the hotel meal was adequate. A very early morning breakfast choices were quite basic: perhaps not all the food was yet displayed at opening time. The hotel is exceptionally convenient for the train station to take travellers to Machu Picchu or back towards Cusco. This review may sound less enthusiastic than some others on this website. Perhaps the beautiful exterior surrounds of the accommodation promised something more exciting within the walls and food service. This is certainly an adequate short-term stay between famous sights in this part of Peru.More
