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.
