At KB Tambo, you'll experience great customer service, nice and clean rooms and also a chance to relax on the roof with a premium view on the ruins. For the price, you cannot go wrong. Highly recommended.

The hostel was clean and staff very friendly. A great location! The hot tub was not working, didn't look as if it worked for a long time. Which is a shame, the view from the roof terrace was beautiful!!!!!!!!!!! We enjoyed a beer and chilled up on the roof terrace for a couple of hours and it was very nice!

My son and I stayed at KB Tambo 2 nights before our Inca Trail Trek. We definitely made the right decision to use that as our base to see the Sacred Valley. Ollantaytambo is a much different experience than Cuzco--not so busy or touristy. We thoroughly enjoyed the hostal. The room was bright and cheerful. The beds were comfortable and...

We ad a room with a bathroom, so kind of like a hotel. Huge room, with good beds and pillows. Hot water. Overpriced I thought, but it is in the center of the action. Friendly staff. I am 53 and was traveling with my 20 year old daughter and it met my comfort needs and her bohemian needs. Ollantaytambo was...

The KB tambo is a excellent hotel option in Ollantaytambo. The bakery restaurant that is part of the Hotel bakes fresh bread, pizzas and a variety of pies and cakes. The breakfast that is part of the stay, is very tasty. The room was clean and comfortable and the wifi worked well. Our room was on the first floor and...

It would have been nice to spend more than one night here. We had a garden view room on the second floor--a beautiful garden view, plus a view of the ruins. It was also nice to have furniture for once--a table with two chairs, a bookcase, a chest of drawers, two night tables. It was clean, the water was hot,...

Loved the authentic experience and getting off the beaten tourist path. The highlight of our trip to Peru was the places we were taken by the KB Tambo crew for mountain biking, gorgeous views, history and a lot of fun. Highly recommend it!

A gem of a place to stay! Small and comfortable just up the road from the Inca ruins and down from the main plaza. Rooms are tucked away behind. We had a room on the top with a view of the Inca terraces. Lovely little garden full of flowers. Breakfast is included and served out front in the bakery by...

My friend and I stayed here at the end of April 2013 for one night. April is a great time to go to Peru as it's their fall and not the busiest time of the year. Ollantaytambo is a really neat place to stay. We had other friends who stayed at Aguas Calientes (the town closest to Machupicchu) but that...
