Four of us stayed here for one night April 24 and it could not have been more lovely. The hotel arranged transport from Cusco, and prepurchased train and Machu Picchu tickets for us. They have an excellent front desk and the breakfast was really great. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed here for several nights in August 2016. We loved Ollantaytambo, and this hotel. Our room had a small private seating area with awesome views of the ruins. The room and the bathroom were clean, and although it was cold at night, the linens on the bed were really warm, and we were very comfortable. The...

Given the location in the remote and ancient village of Ollantaytambo, this hotel provides remarkable amenities. The room and bathroom were in excellent shape. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. We had a great view of the Ollantaytambo ruins from our window and a nice garden sitting area outside our door.

Travelled April 2014 - This was a lovely little hostal in Ollantaytambo. We stayed here on two separate occasions, firstly in their largest room with the private garden which it was lovely. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed sitting in the deck chairs outside our room overlooking the ruins. The views were stunning. Our second room was small and...

Hostal Iskay was perfect for our first night in Peru. We arranged a ride from the airport with the hotel and the driver was waiting for us when we landed. The hotel is simple, clean, and very picturesque. Ollantaytambo is very easy to navigate on foot.

Great location within walking distance to everything you need. Our room had a view looking out on the Ollantaytambo ruins which was pretty cool. Very cool decor and we had a nice little patio next to our room to sit and look out on the ruins. We were walking distance to the train station and the folks at the front...

It's true, the view really is lovely. The garden is exceptionally pleasant and you really couldn't wish for a nicer spot to sip tea and watch the sunset. Many of the staff have very good English and are extremely helpful. You get the impression they are proud to work there, which is quite understandable given the lower general standards of...

Great view of the ruins from some parts of the Hostal. Good service at arrival and at breakfast. It is important to know that your car will not reach the door of the place so you might end up like us carrying your luggage up, and you might not be ready for it because of the high altitude. The facilities...
