Accueil chaleureux. Petit déjeuner au top. Très propre. Couvertures chaudes. Eau chaude. Hôtes très arrangeants. Nous avons séjourné deux nuits; le 1er matin nous prenions le train à 5h pour aller au Machu Picchu, un petit déjeuner sous forme de snack nous attendait dans la salle à manger. Très appréciable. "L'hôtel" est placé dans une petite rue très calme, à 2 minutes à pied de la place principale.
Nous recommandons vivement. De plus, le village est DE LOIN plus agréable qu'Agua Calientes.
My friend and I stayed here on our way to Machu Pichu and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Ollantayambo or the Sacred Valley area. Our host was very welcoming and helpful with recommendations and arranging transportation. Breakfast was included, no frills but cute place, clean and great value. Only drawback is that wifi is slow, but that seemed to be the case at most places I've encountered in Peru
Very charming place and impeccable service. Just across the street from the entrance to the amazing climb of Pinkuylluna that gives you the best (and free !) view of Ollantaytambo an it's main ruins. Only downside: the walls seem to be made of paper as we could hear our neighbors whispering...
We stayed in the Rumi room, on the ground floor and next to the street/pathway outside.
Checkin was a little disconcerting. We were met by a relatively unfriendly young man (not the lovely hostess who appeared later) who led us into a unwindowed, harshly lit room to fill in forms. It felt a bit like an interrogation room.
Overall this was a nice stay in a lovely town. A few things to be aware of:
- If you are big on privacy, this may not be for you. All the room doors open into the same hallway, so sounds travel easily. The room doors are paned with glass and have curtains that only just cover them.
- Our bathroom was amazingly modern, but smelled very strongly of mildew as soon as the shower had been run.
Breakfast was great, custom-made at the time of our choosing.
The burbling water channel outside was indeed nice. The location is right next to the Pinkuylluna trail leading up to the granaries - a phenomenal hike.
I would stay here again but would try to get a room upstairs.
The Rumi room at Picaflor was the perfect place to stay following my visit to Machu Picchu and the breakfast in the morning was exactly what I needed. It was a very beautiful house in a very beautiful, lively, and safe little town. I would definitely recommend staying here even if you don't have plans to go to Machu Picchu.
We loved our stay at Picaflor Tambo! Beautiful rooms with unbeatable view. Hosts were very kind and helpful and even held a complementary pisco sour happy hour for guests. Definitely recommend this place.
I wish I stayed longer!
Antonio was a great host. Before my arrival, he helped reserve a private taxi from Cusco to Ollantaytambo. I was taken to a few sights on the way as well.
Upon my arrival, he saw that I was not feeling well and rushed to make me some tea. I was traveling alone and felt so well cared for while at Picaflor. Ollantaytambo is a cute town with such character. I only stayed one night but plan to stay longer next time. The room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. After a difficult day of travel, this was exactly what I needed. The wi-fi was not easy to access but Antonio just graciously handed over his laptop so that I could use it. He helped me with accesing the train station and schedules to Machu Picchu. The next morning, I had a beautiful breakfast ready for me. It truly nurtured me for another busy day of travel. Antonio had been worried that I was disturbed with noise throughout the evening- I guess there was activity on the street on Saturday night. It was very sweet of him to worry- I slept great with no problems! I had a great stay in the Rumi room @ Picaflor.
