El Albergue is a rustic, friendly little hotel in flowery gardens beside the railway in Ollantaytambo, Sacred Valley.

Built in 1925, this rustic, colonial style guesthouse sits behind Ollantaytambo train station (so very convenient if you have an early morning train to catch) but still only a short walk from the centre of the village. With just a small number of rooms, the hotel's focus is on friendly and personal service.

The whitewashed, tiled building has wooden balconies and the guest rooms also benefit from polished flooring and solid wooden furnishing,, giving them a cottagey feel. There’s complimentary Wifi.

 The lovely gardens are well tended with lots of colourful flowers which frequently attract hummingbirds to the property. The restaurant has a good reputation for serving local dishes with an inventive touch and is also open to non-guests. Many of the ingredients come from their own organic farm.

  • We had a private tour, which we think was the best way to do this sort of trip.  Although we had only 9 days in Peru in the Cuzco area, we managed to cover an extensive amount of material in depth and the whole trip was unforgettable.  The local organisation was superb - punctual, knowledgeable, reliable, etc.

    PS, Reading
  • We love Peru and the people every time we go back it is a memorable experience. 

    JL, Cobham
  • "All of it was memorable in different ways as the culture is so different. We found the Peruvian people helpful and cheerful. We enjoyed Arequipa, the Colca Canyon and Lake Titicaca, along with all of the trips and transfers."
