El Albergue Review

Right at the train station, the town's first hotel, El Albergue, features spacious rooms with dark-wood accents and historic black-and-white photos of the region. Owned by exuberant longtime American resident and artist Wendy Weeks, the lodging has homey touches like a wood-fired sauna, huge breakfasts, and a cozy sitting room. If you're lucky, you'll arrive just when the chocolate-chip cookies emerge from the oven and the whole place smells like Grandma's kitchen. Reserve in advance: the place is popular with groups about to embark on, or just returning from, the nearby Inca Trail. Children are welcome to use the family playground.

    Convenient Sacred Valley Hotel

    Albergue is a small hotel in the interesting village of Ollantaytambo that is also a railroad station for the Machu Picchu train. The ruins on the edge of town are very interesting also. The hotel has nice gardens and most of the rooms have a view of the ruins and/or mountains.

    Manager´s comment

    El Albergue Ollantaytambo (www.elalbergue.com) has been renovated recently, all rooms now have private bath, hot water 24hours, phones in room (still no TV, and probably never will be TV). We also take VISA credit or debit cards.
