Fodor's Expert Review El Albergue

Estación de Ferrocarril, Ollantaytambo, Cusco, Peru Fodor's Choice

Right at the train station, the town's first and undoubtedly finest hotel, El Albergue, is absolutely lovely, with spacious rooms featuring dark-wood accents, historic black-and-white photos of the region, and a tranquil garden area. The lodging has homey touches, 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. It also features the best restaurant in town, perfect for a special dinner.
