The small town of Ollantaytambo is located within Peru’s Sacred Valley close to Machu Picchu. It’s a quaint and traditional Incan village, and is surrounded by some seriously stunning peaks. Outdoor activities abound and include hiking, horseback riding, biking, and rafting. There is also an Inca temple and fortress above town—visiting these structures will give travelers access to some impressive Inca stonework.
The Ollantaytambo Lodge is calm, quiet and comfortable. The building has red-tile roofs and extends around a central courtyard that looks out over the nearby mountains. The setting is peaceful and relaxed. Guests are welcomed with a free Pisco Sour.
The rooms here are large and clean. They have private bathrooms and showers with plenty of hot water. The windows look out onto the courtyard and garden, and all rooms have spectacular views of the mountains. The beds are comfy and have fluffy comforters and bedside reading lamps. The rooms can sleep up to three people and have daily housekeeping service.
A complimentary buffet breakfast helps guests start their day off right. Lunch and dinner are available as well, and the meals tend to incorporate both typical Peruvian food and international recipes. Room service is available from 6:30 AM to 11:00 PM. The hotel has a well stocked bar where you can order cold beer, cocktails, or wine. Sipping a Pisco Sour after a day of hiking is a great way to end your day in Ollantaytambo.
Wireless Internet is available throughout most of the hotel. Guests can store valuables in a safety deposit box and keep their bags secure in a luggage room if they’ll be heading out for a day or two. Other services of the Ollantaytambo Lodge include currency exchange, oxygen service, laundry service, and parking.
The staff here is warm and provides excellent service to their guests.
