We stayed at the Apu Lodge 3 nights. When we arrived in Ollantatambo, we were surprised to learn that the Lodge was at the end of a long cobblestone walkway. Our luggage was transported to the Lodge in a cart powered by a 3-wheeled bicycle. It was all rather charming. The Lodge itself is simply but pleasantly furnished. The atmosphere is casual. The reception area is in part of a large common room with tables and chairs (also used for breakfast), a small sitting area next to a fireplace and book shelf/library. Our room was clean, simple and pleasant, with a terrific view of the Ollantatambo ruins. The queen-sized bed was very comfortable. There were plenty if blankets on the bed, including a comforter. The hot water tap in the shower was a little finicky but we had good hot showers. WIFI was a bit of a challenge. I could not get it in the room and it was “hit and miss” in the common area depending on where I was sitting. Breakfast was included in the price and was very basic (eggs on request, bread, fruit, granola and coffee). The owner was pleasant and friendly. Overall, I would recommend this charming hotel if you are going to stay in low key Ollantatambo. If you book a room here, be prepared to pay in cash (only good, untorn US bills or Soles accepted), and keep in mind that there are only 2 cash machines in Ollantatambo. Also, if you are taking the train to Machu Picchu, the train station is about a 20 minute walk away.
