Pacha, which is "earth" in the local quechua language, is a large room with direct access to the patio garden. Perfect for a trio of friends or family members with an en suite bathroom. Maximum capacity is 3.
Pacha is one of our 6 individually unique rooms that we offer in Picafor Tambo, a"bijou" guest house nested beneath the sacred mountain of "Pinkuylluna" with a peaceful aqua lullaby and beautiful balcony views to the Inca ruins above.
The house is located within the living Inca village of Ollantaytambo and offers you a perfect relaxing "sojourn" and break before or after your next adventure to Machu Picchu, the beauty of our Sacred Valley, Cusco or nearby into the delights of the jungle.
Our house offers the discerning guest a tranquil and unique experience of Peru and its rustic mountain countryside in a comfortable and cosy atmosphere. The house also showcases local craftsmanship and wood carving in traditional local style.
All our guests are most welcome to share our cosy salon with its warming fireplace.
We also offer a hearty breakfast of local produce to set you up for your day and of (email hidden) to relax after a full and fun day of exploring.
We look forward to helping you with your booking and making your stay with us special.

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 had a wonderful time at Picaflor. The place was very clean and in a great location! The host was accommodating and welcoming. She helped us arrange taxis to tour the area and even negotiated the price for us. And she packed a sack of snacks for our early departure to Machu Picchu.
the most convenient location. confortable room. great breakfast. Antonio and the lady are very kind. advisable.

I could not recommend staying at Picaflor Tambo more highly. My family and I were recommended them by friends and they could not have been more right about the joys of staying at Picaflor. The rooms and the whole setting of the guesthouse are absolutely gorgeous. The location is quiet, but a very short walk from the center of town and just across the way from a lovely hike to Inca Ruins on the mountain above. They were lovely hosts who went above and beyond from making tea to caring for a sick friend to make our stay wonderful.
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 had a lovely time in ollyantaytambo! everyone was very friendly and very helpful in answering our questions. the location was amazing with fabulous views and easy access to climbing around on the ruins located right behind the bnb. would definitely recommend this bnb! thanks for everything!
A nice place to stay in an absolutely gorgeous town. Make sure to specify very clearly which room you're interested in (queen bed, family room, etc).
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.
