I would like to thank this place, actually named Hostal Sauce. We were there during the Macchu PIcchu train crash, and it was so nice to be in a nice place like this during all that chaos. I read a few unfavorable reviews, but I must respectfully disagree with them. In fact, I cannot even picture that incident regarding some soup that was late and overpriced. Everybody here was helpful. Thais, the owner's daughter, was working there while we were there, and she is awesome. She really helped us out a lot with a bunch of things. So did the woman who works in the kitchen. Our baby got bronchitis, and she walked all the way down to the doctor's clinic with us and yelled at him for overcharging us. Her daughter, who is only 7, was also just delightful. The place is nice, clean, awesomely located, and has good breakfast food and great coffee. Don't think twice about staying here. As far as normal hotels would go, this would be a 4 stars, but considering where it is located and what is available there, I definitely give it 5 stars. If you are going to Machu Picchu, I absolutely recommend staying a couple days in this town before you take the train. Ollantaytambo is a really cool place.

Hostel Sauce wasn't the highlight of our trip, but it served its purpose -- it was comfortable, efficient, and for-the-most-part, welcoming.

Rooms: the bed was very comfy, the blankets were very warm. They had brought us a little basket of fruit, water, and chocolates when we arrived -- very nice touch. The water bottles were replenished every day.

Food/Drink: the breakfasts were okay -- nothing to write home about, but they filled our stomachs and gave us the energy to go out exploring for another day. The Pisco Sour welcome drinks were STRONG -- so be prepared! I never ate at the restaurant at the Hotel other than for breakfast as there were many options in the square right outside the front door and they were all very very good.

Activities: they were very helpful in getting us set up with a driver for day tours to Moray, Maras, Chinchero, Pisac. They also arranged the pick-up and drop-off to the airport in Cuzco. Prices were reasonable. The drivers usually didn't speak much English though -- and when I say not much, I mean pretty much none at all. Having said that, we managed okay even with our elementary (and I mean REALLY elementary) Spanish skills. They also packed up a lunch for us to take with for our day at Macchu Picchu and included a free drive to the train station in the wee hours of the morning. Much appreciated!

Service: the girls at the desk and the other staff members were all extremely nice. We found the woman who came in to take care of the accounting (perhaps she's the owner?) to be less pleasant. Not mean, per se, but just less pleasant than the other staff members. But then again, we never really had to deal with her except to give her the final room payment, so it didn't really matter too much how pleasant she was.

I totally loved this hotel for the proximity to the train station and the view of the fortress.
Ollantay is the name of the town and Tambo means gate. So "Gates of Ollantay".

Do not try the restaurant, non-existent really. But, because of the center of town location, ther is no shortage of restaurants. Some that are really cozy and cool looking.

Beds were very comfy, lots of blankets, bathroom was clean and an awesome site. No problems with check in and check out. We prepaid online.

This hotel is a tad expensive, but it gives you a safe and comfortable feeling. And a nice place to rest up before MP. By far the nicest hotel in Ollantaytambo.

Hot tip - on our way to Ollantay we took a private tour $60 US, but on the way back, after our MP train tour; we just flagged down a tour bus and got a lift back to Cuzco for approx. 2 US per person. I totally recommend going to Ollantay during the late afternoon, staying overnight and taking the "red eye" to MP. You get there before the crowds of Cuzco arrive on the later trains. Take the backpacker fare. Cheapest way.

Please feel free to write if you have any questions.

Because we had such a big lunch, we decided to stay at the hotel restaurant for dinner and have just a bowl of soup. The manager had earlier told us that this was possible and listed the different kinds of soup offered. I should have known we were in trouble when the kitchen staff/waitress showed a shocked expression when we ordered. Marco (our guide) was with us, translating, both when we initially asked about the soup and again now that we were ordering. Seeing the expression of the kitchen lady, I said that if this created difficulty, we could join Marco in going out to another restaurant. We were assured that we could have soup at the "Sauce Hotel and Restaurant". We ordered our soup and Marco went off to a restaurant while we waited and waited and waited...... Marco returned from having dinner about an hour later and was surprised to see that we were still waiting!!! He went to the kitchen and after asking about our soup, he was assured that it would be ready soon. We finally got it about 10 minutes later. The bill was 22 sol - very expensive compared to other full meals we had had in nice restaurants. The manager became surly when we did not leave a tip after waiting so long for the expensive, soup. Breakfast was to be served starting at 7 a.m. rather than 6 a.m. like all of the other hotels we stayed at so we went for a walk and returned at 7. It wasn't ready until 7:30 and the coffee was absolutely undrinkable - with horrible rubbery pieces of heated milk in it but long gone cold. Apparently, the restaurant has been more or less closed except for breakfast but they aren't telling anyone??? The view from our room was not at all nice but the room was clean and comfortable. The lobby area was cozy - a nice place to sit and read - with some beautiful woodwork and Puruvian knit hats. Fortunately, the horrible experience here was unique in our 3 weeks of travel.

We stayed for two nights in Ollanta prior to our Inca Trail hike this past September. This hotel is in a great location, maybe 2 minutes from the main square. I preferred this location than to others that there further away, maybe 10 minutes away closer to the train stations.

The room and bathroom were clean and nicely kept. We asked for a room with a view of the ruins. It was very beautiful!!! The staff was great and accommodating to us. We did have to use some of our broken high school spanish, but it was all part of the experience! The breakfast in the morning was good with eggs and pancakes to order. There is also an ATM in the lobby which ended up being very useful.
