From beginning to end, a great experience. Booking online was no problem by email with Graciela. We decided to begin our 10 days in Peru (after an overnight at the Lima Airport Ramada) in Ollantaytambo, which is lower elevation than Cusco, to get acclimated. Graciela in person was a delight. She was like a concierge, arranging taxis (at the best prices) and resolving a problem with Peru Rail concerning our reservations on the trains to and from Machu Picchu, always with a smile.
We had a prime room, king bed, with a spectacular view of the Inca ruins and mountains beyond, plus it overlooked an active street corner in town. We stayed there four nights and never tired of looking out our window at the view and the colorful street scene. One day a local funeral procession passed by right under the window. Also a water channel runs by the hotel so during the quiet nights we enjoyed the sound of rushing water.
The hotel itself is spotless, bed was very comfortable, breakfast was good. Room was simple but charming. Other rooms and bathrooms that we saw were smaller. There's an ATM right in the outer lobby, one of only two in the town.
Be aware that the town is quite small (though lively and interesting and well-preserved Inca village) and the hotel as well as other facilities are simple, often rustic...if you expect an international style hotel and decor you will be disappointed in the hotel as well as the area. But if you want to experience the Sacred Valley in reasonable comfort without sacrificing authenticity of culture, the town and Hostal Sauce are highly recommended.
