This hotel is convenient if traveling to Machu Picchu. It sits on beautiful landscape and the farm is pretty. Don't miss out on the organic breakfast made w ingredients from the farm. I highly recommend it!!!

This place is truly unique with it's massive flower and herb gardens, friendly cats, dogs and rabbits and an extensive farm. We had a second floor spacious room with windows looking out to the mountains on one side and the gardens on the other. There was a balcony with comfortable chairs to sit out on and enjoy the environment. Also...

From the small unsuspecting entrance right off the train platform we expected a modest, average hotel. We were met with very friendly staff and given the option to upgrade our room, which we took. Absolutely worth it. We had a beautiful spacious room, amazing view of the mountains, and our balcony over looked the garden. A small piece of paradise...

We absolutely loved our stay at El Albergue. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful (we ordered a taxi and guides through them), and our room was lovely. The location next to the train is very convenient, but it is also walking distance from the center of town and various hikes. We were able to store our luggage there after...

El Albergue does not disappoint! Right from the check-in experience I knew my stay would be great. The gardens are beautiful and the room was amazing with a sweeping view of the surrounding mountains. The location of the hotel is perfect...it's right at the Ollantaytambo train station. After a long day at Machu Picchu it was perfect to step off...

We arrived at the hotel which is located at the train station to Machu Picchu and when we entered it was like falling down an amazing Rabbit Hole! The lobby is very much like a structure from years ago. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and while sparsely furnished they reflect the exterior surroundings. There...

My only regret is that I spent just one night at this amazing hotel. I arrived with my wife and two children after a strenuous day in Machu Picchu. The hotel is located right on the train tracks, which was great. We were tired and wanted to relax and get ready for a good meal after getting off the train....

Charming little hotel right at the train station. On site restaurant was one of the best we visited in all of Peru. Rooms large, extremely comfortable, with excellent bedding, mini fridge, and nice bathrooms. Located a little out from the center of town but was an easy walk to the central plaza and ruins. Overall we loved Ollantaytambo!
