Before we arrived the hotel helped us arrange a taxi from the airport for a good price. We decided to head straight to Ollantaytambo from the airport to acclimate to the high altitude for a night before heading to Machu Picchu. It was a bit a of a walk from where the taxi dropped us off, but not too bad. When we arrived the woman there was very friendly and offered to cook us some eggs and toast. The room was comfortable and the showers were hot, but the wifi did not reach our room, so we had to go to the common area to access it. They let us leave our luggage for the two days we were gone to Machu Picchu, which is convenient because it is hard to take a large bag on the train there. They even arranged for the taxi driver to pick us up again at the central square with our luggage already in hand when we arrived back. All in all, we felt very welcomed here and would love to stay here again if we ever return.
