Self acclaimed as “the train station hotel”, this historical Peru hotel opened in 1923 under the name of Santa Rosa Hotel. With the arrival of the train to town, the hotel was re-opened in 1976, making it the oldest accommodation in Ollantaytambo. Providing an intimate atmosphere enhanced by friendly and professional service, this beautiful hotel is perfect if you are looking for a personalized stay in the Sacred Valley with a feeling of being right at home.
El Albergue Bed & Breakfast is engulfed by lush, verdant, and beautifully simple gardens filled with hummingbirds and graced by the aroma of fuchsia, passionflower, floripondium, peaches, and avocado trees that fill the gardens. Not only does this greenery make the hotel look spectacular, it also makes a perfect accompaniment to the outstanding scenery of the Sacred Valley. It is no surprise that this pleasant hotel is regularly blessed as the best hotel in Peru.
Open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., the hotel’s restaurant and café awaits you for a delicious buffet breakfast every morning, offering fresh fruits, yogurt, granola, cereals, eggs, coffee, and juice. The Café Mayu, directly located on the train platform, is the perfect place to enjoy refreshments and snacks before taking the train back to Cusco. In the restaurants, guests will find a full lunch and dinner menu displaying exquisite dishes made exclusively with organic local products and combining traditional Peruvian and European flavors.
Special care and attention to each and every detail characterize the hotel’s charming 16 rooms. Abundant with personal touches such as plants and Andean textiles, the décor of the rooms reflects the natural ambience of the property with gorgeous wooden furnishings and artwork standing out from the whitewashed walls, flowing with natural colors and influences. The rustic appeal of the accommodations is matched by ample modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay for guests such as private bathrooms, wireless Internet, and a safe deposit box.
