Great lodge, beautiful location. Stayed three nights in September 2012. On the edge of town, down a cobblestone street, about 5 minute walk to the town center. No vehicles are permitted on these walkways, so there is a distance to carry luggage. Taxi driver and/or the lodge will offer to assist you. To us, this was not an issue, and was a large part of the charm of Ollantaytambo. Beautiful gardens, and outstanding view out of our second floor room at the ruins. Town small and interesting enough to want to walk everywhere, but in case you don't want to walk the distance from the plaza with luggage to train station, it is only s./2 for 2 people in a motor car (which are fun too!). The lodge has internet, however it is only available in the lounge area. No phone or TV, but we certainly didn't miss either of them. Room was large. very clean. All staff very friendly, guests friendly. Entire atmosphere very casual. Great breakfast - best fried eggs ever! Great value, warm and hospitable lodge. Ollantaytambo is still small enough to see typical Peruvian life. Very quaint, and safe. We felt very sad when it was time to leave.
