Such a great find!!! We got here from Cusco via a collectivo and got dropped off at the square. The hotel is like 30 second walk downhill from the square overlooking the ruins. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the lobby area is nice with a cozy fireplace. One of the staff members had her 1 year old there and he was the cutest baby ever!! The hotel has a restaurant that was started recently by one of their friends and it was the best food we had in cusco. It was gluten free restaurant and we had awesome sushi and gluten free pizza and if you had a little too much to drink that night the bedrooms are just a few stairs away. They also organized a driver for us on our return from Macchu Picchu to visit Maras, Moray and Chinchero who was great and very affordable. They also had awesome breakfast. If you are in Olly you need to stay here.

Room Tip: Get the room that has the views to the ruins. It is a beautiful sight to wake up to.

Great place! My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon trip to Peru. The owners were unbelievably friendly and helpful. They helped arrange transportation around the Sacred Valley to several sites and another time back to Cusco. They got us really good prices, compared to what was on most internet blog sites, with friendly drivers. The view from room 13 is awesome - looks right out over the ruins. The rooms were comfortable, clean and quaint and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Get room 13!

This was a good stay. The bilingual manager was very helpful but not everyone on the staff speaks English. The location is great; one block from the plaza, one block from the ruins and a ten minute walk to the train station. The room was adequate and clean but because of its location you do get some road noise and also noise from the bar downstairs. We had a great view of the ruins which are illuminated at night. A good breakfast buffet. It has nothing to do with the hotel, but stay away from the ATM just inside the doors. The machine ripped me off of 200 soles by not giving me any money for my transaction. No adjustment was made later by the bank.

Sauce Hostal was a great to place to stay in Ollantaytambo. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was good. The best part...we could see the ruins right from our room! The front desk staff were very helpful and the driver that they work with was a great guide around some of the Sacred Valley ruins. Sauce Hostal is also very close to the train to Machu Picchu.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Ollantaytambo.

The view of the ruins from this property is possibly the best in town. You can hear the water running through the channels right outside your window. The owners are very kind and very helpful. The rooms are clean, basic and pleasant. Breakfast is typical Peruvian.
