“Great place in Ollantaytambo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Loved our one night stay here on the way to Machu Picchu. The room was spacious but even better - the view was spectacular. I think we had the best room in the place. The family was friendly and helpful. And the breakfast was perfect for our morning climb if the ruins.

Sauce hotel is quite small and no elevator but the décor and rooms were just wonderful. The knit hats in the lobby were very cute. Breakfast was great. The staff were nice and some spoke English. It was a fun place to stay to watch all the folks walk by in the morning on their way to school or work. The wifi worked out in the middle of nowhere. Nice short walk to the train station. It was very nice of them to keep our big luggage for our overnight trek to MP.

Room Tip: More quiet off the street but you can see the world go by on the street side.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sauce Hostal. We were there for only a night, but found the accommodations to be very clean and comfortable and the staff were extremely friendly.

The hotel is located across from the ruins in Ollantaytambo, so offers good views and a great location.

We were two families with 4 kids who stayed for one night at this inn which is conveniently located close to the ruins, train station and the market square. On our way to Aquas Calientes from Cusco we left behind some luggage that was properly cared for till we returned the next day in the evening. The evening we were there was a festive one in town since it was the full moon and there was a festival to the Lord of the Towers. There was singing and dancing in the square and processions through the town. Our children made friends with kids of people who worked in the inn and walked around this safe town till late in the night. The Innkeeper was extremely friendly and hospitable and made this place feel just like home. Breakfast in the morning was fried eggs and cereal and was good. There was a lady selling amazing beef and chicken skewers right outside the hotel. Don't miss this pre ruin climb snack !

Excellent location. Close to the train station, market place, ruins. Small hotel,6-8 rooms, clean leanings, heaters in the rooms. Shower was good, but had to give a little time for the water to get worm. Stayed in room 15, our friends - in 13. Internet slow. Took the train to MP and back. Juvista and her husband were very friendly and helpful. Ollyantaytambo is a small town (village) with a lot of homeless dogs.
The rate for the room is a little too high for this kind of hotel/hostal. We paid 330s/$132.94 for 2 nights.
Good restaurans in Ollanta: Puka Rumi, hearts cafe

We were happy to have chosen this hotel as our home-base in the Sacred Valley and would recommend it again highly. Ollyan is a lovely little town with shops, restaraunts, bars and RUINS to explore. I thought it much nicer than near-by Urubamba. STAY HERE
Llubitza and Ephraim are hands-on owners running the hotel and it's like you are in their home. Nice to come home at end of day to sit in the front parlor and have some mate de coca. The breakfast buffet was nice each morning. The rooms and beds were clean and comfortable and bathrooms just fine- plenty of hot water, working toilets, clean. It was easy to book this- Llubitza answers e-mails quickly! Price is reasonable. The location is perfect- near the ruins (our window in our room overlooked the ruins-cool) and near lots of restaraunts. The "Old Town" area and plaza are close. It can be noisey at times as it is off the main drag to ruins and plaza- just take earplugs if you're a light sleeper. The train station to Aguas Calientes is near-by. The hosts helped us with transfers from Cusco, taxis to other places. They are just nice, genuine people who care about their guests! I would choose it again!

Room Tip: away from the main street, overlooking the ruins is perfect

We stayed here for two nights on our way and returning from Manchu Picchu. This property is a nice small hotel. The owners are helpful and made us feel welcome. Normally breakfast is starts at 7. We were to catch an early trains to MP, and they laid out an early breakfast.

There is internet, albeit slow at times, and no television in the rooms. Rooms are clean. The street side rooms can be noisy until about 10 PM. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms without a view are quieter.
