great place to stay
Posted Apr 14, 2016
We stayed two (non-consecutive) nights in this is a unique Peruvian hotel, but went to Machu Picchu for one night in between. I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Ollantaytambo. It is not a Marriot or Hilton style hotel, but a smaller hotel with about 20 rooms. Our room had a (creaky) wooden floor and was quite basic in furnishing, but was clean with a good supply of towels. There is a security safe in the room and a fast, complimentary wifi.
The strength of this hotel is the location, the staff, the service, and the restaurant. It is in a train station and you literally walk from the platform into the hotel lobby. This was a great bonus after a long day at Machu Picchu – off the train and into the lobby, get our key and within two minutes we were in our room. We were not disturbed at all by the noise of trains.
The staff did all they could to assist guests. The receptionist, Javier was awesome. He spoke excellent English and provided us with sound advice to our many questions. Julia, one of the managers also introduced herself to ensure our stay was going well.
There was a good choice of breakfast items in the complimentary breakfast including scrambled eggs, juice, fruit, coffee and tea, with excellent waiter/waitress service. The web site explains how they source their food from their local farm. We also had dinner there both evenings and they had a varied menu with all items at reasonable prices - great lasagna.
