Ollantaytambo Lodge in Sacred Valley


In our trip to Peru 2010 we will enter one of the valleys that have left more legacies for humanity, the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

He the Incas' Sacred Valley, in the Peruvian Andes, it is composed of numerous rivers that descend through gorges and small valleys, where the Incas, due to their excellent geographical and climatic qualities, settled their empire, parallel to the Vilcanota River.

At our first stop in this valley we will reach the small town of Ollantaytambo. After valuing several options we have finally chosen to stay in the Ollantaytambo Lodge.

Again, we have made the reservation with Inkadina Travel & Tours, the receptive local agency that has managed several services in Peru, although its own web It also makes our homework much easier.

The price of this accommodation is around $ 40-60 USD per night and room

The accommodation is locate in a privileged place, in a central and very quiet area, from where you can see the beautiful mountains, the Sacred Valley, the Ollantaytambo temple and beautiful Inca terraces that are cultivated with products native to the local inhabitants.

Their rooms, Of the 24 available, they are very comfortable and are decorated with all the appropriate equipment for their category of a fun and unforgettable experience. These have a private and modern bathroom, hot water, safe, hairdryer, laundry service,…

Besides, the cleaning It is exquisite.

Among the other services, the hotel stands out for its restaurant where they serve a buffet breakfast of great variety, coffee bar, parking area, green area, luggage storage, oxygen service, currency exchange, etc ...

Already back, let's go to our "GUIDED VISIT" of the accommodation With our impressions.

At the beginning it was difficult for us to find the hotel, and that is Location It is at the end of a street below the town, in a quiet area where it seems that nothing is left. Ollantaytambo is not big, so we are talking about 3 minutes from the Plaza de Armas.

Their rooms, that we knew a little respect a priori, perfectly fulfilled being a passing accommodation. We miss a double bed, but it was all in perfect condition cleaning and with the necessary furniture and accessories.

Also the bath meets, although perhaps it is excessively small and did not have accessories (gels, shampoos, etc ...)

The best of the complex are its phenomenal outdoor gardens where, in addition to a small place with tables to take the breakfast (quite simple), they house a bar with restaurant service with a somewhat limited menu.

More interesting facts are that it has WIFI but only in its area near the lobby and it goes quite badly, in addition to having to ring to be opened, because the door is permanently closed.

The we would recommend? Well, it is one of those accommodations that we could not enjoy too much (good thing, which means that the day was very complete) so we will leave it to consumer taste, making it clear that it perfectly fulfills its function.
