Welcoming hotel with a traditional, rustic feel, set within attractive gardens with beautiful mountain views.

This is a modern hotel, but its traditional style blends in with that of the villages and farmhouses of the region. Terracotta walls and tiled roofs give a colonial look to the four buildings housing its cosy guestrooms, all set within attractive gardens with beautiful views of the mountains fringing the Sacred Valley. 

Polished eucalyptus floors and beams enhance the hotel's friendly atmosphere while a welcoming open fire makes the lounge a particularly cosy place to relax. Service is welcoming and there is also a pleasant restaurant, TV room and bar.

Hotel Pakaritampu is conveniently situated a couple of minutes' walk from the railway station in Ollantaytambo, the point of departure for the scenic railway journey to Machu Picchu. Ollantaytambo is well worth a visit in itself: it's a rural village whose history is manifested in the Inca walls forming the base of colonial houses, the exposed water channels that run along its cobbled lanes, and a massive Inca fortress perched on the gateway from the Andes to the jungle.

What our clients say

  • "Excellent location for the train station but a bit far from the main square in town. Staff were not very friendly but a clean and tidy hotel regardless."

    ES, London
  • Only there for one night but very nice.

    PT, Croydon
  • Lovely hotel in a beautiful town.

    DLLM,
  • "A very nice hotel comprising a number of separate two storey blocks built within very pleasant gardens and located about two minutes walk from the railway station. Breakfast offered an excellent, if familiar, choice of items and the dinner menu was more than adequate for a short stay. There was also a large bar."

    DM, Nottingham
  • Beautiful hotel in amazing surroundings. Loved the garden, streams running past, llama pen and general vibe of the hotel.

    HC Orpington
  • This was by far the best hotel in Ollantaytambo. Very comfortable in beautiful grounds and 5mins walk to get the train to  Machu Picchu.
