El Albergue is a friendly hotel for travellers in Sacred Valley. It's right on the station so handy for catching the train to Machu Picchu. The rooms are very clean with crisp linen. The bathrooms are a bit small and the beds are a on the firm side and also only double. It has a lovely restaurant and on check...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 February 2017

A bit of a later review was there in December 2014, but never too late, this place is unforgetable. When you first get off the train it looks like you're about to enter the station, that really worried me - and then it is a restaurant, then you go through the garden full of flowers and roses and hummingbirds. I...

I am surprised how positive the reviews are for this hotel. The reason I am giving it this rating is mostly because of our room assignment. Some of the good things first: The best part of this hotel is the location. It is right at the train station so if you have an early train to catch to Manchu Picchu...

We were fortunate enough to stay a night at El Albergue en route to Machu Picchu but immediately upon arrival I already wished we had more time to spend there. We arrived in time for the Panchamanca lunch which is truly special - fresh vegetables from their farm along with chicken, lamb and pork buried and cooked on hot stones....

We spent two nights here and wish we could have spent more. Lovely gardens, a great bar and fabulous restaurant . It is a perfect location for getting trains to/from Machu Picchu and only 10 mins walk from the village centre.

After flying all day, then a long taxi ride from Cusco (2hours - 110 sols) this interesting, comfortable and welcoming hotel on the Ollantaytambo railway platform was heaven sent. The restaurant and lobby front onto the platform and behind are a number of structures with rooms around gardens. Our room was large and comfortable and we slept soundly... no noise...

Ok- we arrived at 20.30 . Car stopped at the busy train ticketing area and we walked down to the train station pulling out bags through the vendors and tons of people. Was a bit shocking- our driver took us through the entrance to the train station where I could finally see the sign for the hotel. The entrance is...

A most comfortable place, beautiful gardens and mountain views. Delicious restaurant meals, and breakfast included. Room spacious, bed comfortable. Easy access to train to Machu Picchu, and easy walk to village of Ollantaytambo where the streets and plaza are well worth wandering. Also, archeologic ruins right there - and an entry ticket also includes entries to other sites in the...

Lovely hotel right on the train station. Great helpful staff and very convenient for the town of Ollantaytambo and its ruins. Very clean and tidy with good breakfast choice. Would recommend to anyone with a night or more in Ollantaytambo.

My boyfriend and I stayed here to catch the train to Machu Picchu early in the morning. Ollantaytambo is a very quaint town that is still filled authentic Incan charm, so we wanted to experience the town prior to our trek to MP. El Albergue is a gorgeous hotel situated right next to the train, so it makes for a...
