You cannot go wrong by staying here. It's a very nice and comfortable place to stay in Ollantaytambo.
The room and bathroom were nicely decorated, bright and clean. I had a room on the ground floor that opened into a beautifully maintained garden. When I opened the door in the morning, I could see the sunlight hitting the mountains in the distance; One morning, the moon was also still out right next to the peak of one mountains; It was very beautiful.
One great thing about the lodge was the promise that hot water will always be available. The shower had very good pressure. It was very nice to be able to have a hot shower in the evening after a long day of trekking and/or climbing.
The staff was extremely nice. Zed and Louise checked in me, and they were both very friendly and welcoming. I'm pretty much a fuss free traveller, but I'm sure if I had requested or needed anything they would have tried to accommodate it. The other staffs also seemed very nice, but I didn't get a chance to deal much with them.
I stayed for 2.5 days and wished I had alloted at least 1 more full day To Ollantaytambo and at the lodge. It really was a neat place to stay. Make sure you do wander the cobbled alleys of the city in the morning and afternoon to see people going and coming home from work.
It can feel like a relatively long walk on cobbled stones to get to the lodge, depending on how tired you are ;) . If you have big luggage(s) with wheels then you might want to arrange with the lodge beforehand to have a pick-up.
