    Absolutely beautiful landscape. The breakfast was excellent and the staff was very helpful. Our favorite place we stayed in the Andes.

    The bed was a little hard.

    The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, and the hotel offers lots of information about the area. The location is beautiful and convenient as well -- it was wonderful to sit in the garden in the morning with my coffee and breakfast. Very friendly and welcoming -- we would absolutely stay here again. Highly recommended!

    Wifi only available in reception -- however this wasn't a real issue as reception stays open late (which was uncommon in the Sacred Valley, based on our travels throughout other towns).

    The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to provide assistance with luggage. We were tired so they ordered & picked up our dinner from a restaurant! The setting is lovely and very quiet.

    Although the staff pick up the luggage, it's a long walk over very uneven cobblestones & the path to the hotel was poorly lit at night. Hot water took forever to arrive.

    I dont normally do reviews but I am making an exception for this delighful accomodation. There were no negatives. Ollyantatambo was the highlight of our 4 weeks travelling & so was Apu Lodge. We have no hesitation ln recommending.

    We stayed at the Apu lodge for 4 nights in May. The lodge was incredibly beautiful, clean and well maintained. It is situated on the edge of town off a quiet pathway. We stayed on the second floor and the views were breathtaking. The Apu serves breakfast every morning beginning at 7:30 am. In addition to the granola, fresh fruit, milk, yogurt, coffee and cocoa tea, the staff makes eggs made to order. There is cocoa tea and coffee in the lobby 24/7. The owner, Ruth, and the staff were amazingly helpful, kind and friendly. During our stay, my son’s luggage was missing for 4 days. Had it not been for the tireless efforts of Miguel and Ruth, we never would have recovered our luggage. Moreover, I incurred an eye injury during my stay and after we checked out, we returned to the lodge for help. Ruth, the owner, arranged for a taxi to Cusco and made me an appointment at medical clinic there immediately. My eye was tended to and we were back on track in no time. I can’t tell you what a comfort it was to have someone so caring and trustworthy to rely on in our time of need so far from home. The Apu is an exceptional place and, if I’m ever fortunate enough to stay in the Sacred Valley again, I would not consider staying anywhere else. I strongly recommend that visitors spend time in the Sacred Valley – and not just use it as a one night stop over on their way to Machu Picchu. It is truly an amazing place with a magic all its own.

    The location of Apu Lodge is amazing- up a stone path and then through a gate into a lovely garden. The rooms were large and comfortable, the staff remarkably friendly and helpful and the breakfasts fantastic.

    They were very helpful before our visit & gave us many good planning ideas. It was fresh, quiet, and a good value.

    Unfortunately the power was out for the whole town in the morning, no hot water or Internet, but they offered discount!

    Friendly staff, good location, nice room with a view.

    Closest road access is a 10 minute uphill bag drag over uneven cobblestones.

    The view is amazing!!! We really enjoyed it here. We stayed one night but I wouldn't have minded staying two. The hotel was clean with a nice breakfast included and hot water and comfortable beds. I love ollantaytambo. It's so much better than Machu Picchu! Less crowded and I think more beautiful. Definitely go see the ruins there! You will not be disappointed. We hired Apu Lodge transportation from cusco airport. It was great to have them there with a sign upon arrival as I suppose you could get a little disoriented. At $110 soles it's a bit expensive. We took a collectivo back to cusco from ollantaytambo for $15 soles a person. If I did it again I would probably just find a collectivo from cusco airport to ollantaytambo.

    Loved the scenery, the lovely Peruvian girl Carol who helped us out a lot, the beautiful town, the care we felt (ie the early breakfast left for us when we went to Machu Picchu early), lovely room, the quiet and peace. My 15 and 17 year olds loved this place over all others we stayed at in Peru. We had the most amazing view from our window!

    Limited WiFi- though this was exacerbated by the non-Peruvian staff member who seemed to take up a lot of bandwidth watching movies and did not seem to be concerned that guests could not get online.

    Very friendly staff: In the morning the whole village hasn't had electricity (due to some construction activities). So there was no hot water and no Internet in the lodge. Even if they were not responsible for this, they gave me a discount on the rate for that night.

    Lovely hostel, place right in the center of the old Inca town.

    It should be taken into account that the hostel is located right in the end of a long-long paved street right at the opposite end of the town from the railway station - so be careful if you have a suitcase with wheels, a long paved walk is guaranteed.

    Very quiet, great view from the rooms upstairs. Easy walking to center and ruinas. Free tea and coffee all day. Very helpful staff. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our time.

    Nothing to mention.

    The Apu Lodge was energetically clean and the staff was very accommodating. The location was also nice as it was located a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the main square. It also had beautiful views of the ruins.

    Beautiful mountain view from the room and in general. The place is very calm and quiet. Breakfast was nice.

    No TV in the room, internet only at the reception. No vehicle access, so we had to walk some with our bags to the hostel and back (when we left).

    We were placed in a room with 4 beds, which is exactly what we needed. Hot water in the thermos was available most of the day and the breakfast service was good.

    There were bugs in our bathroom, the toilet didn't work and there were no clean, dry towels available. This was problematic for us. The Internet was very slow and spotty, not at all reliable.

    Fantastic little B&B close to the plaza del mas (town centre) and the train to Machu Picchu and Cusco. Awesome staff, Louise and her team are great and made me feel very welcome, and they are really very helpful in all ways. Rooms are very comfortable.
