Interaction with Guests
We will be happy to attend you every time you need. The hotel has a 24 hours service so don't hesitate to contact us whenever you need!
We are located two blocks from the Fortaleza of Ollantaytambo and at 10 minutes from the train station. We are also close to the city center, plaza de armas, where you can find many restaurants and shops.
To get to our place you will have to cross the bridge that brings you to the ruins of Ollantaytambo, then you will have to turn left on the first street after the bridge and after a few steps you can see us.
Henry and Catty were wonderful hosts, and La casa del abuelo is lovely. I have nothing but good things to say about this place. Very clean, very friendly, close to everything but removed enough from the plaza that it's not too loud at night. Breakfast is amazing. Henry and Catty took such good care of me when I was sick with altitude sickness that I ended up staying there an extra few days. This is THE place to stay in Ollantaytambo, seriously.
We echo our first stay. Casa Del Abuelo is an incredible place. We were sad we had to cut our second stay here short due to some strikes in the valley but Henry and Caty were very helpful in getting us out of the valley to Cusco. We really want to come back here again!
Henry & Caty are absolutely wonderful hosts. Even though this is a guest house you definitely get a warm and homey experience staying in their house and they are always nearby to offer help and just generally fun to chat with. Their daughter Mikaela is such a sweetheart and only makes you feel more like you are visiting friends. The location is excellent. A short walk from the train station, very convenient to the plaza and the location is just down the road to the ruins in town. The space is very clean and comfortable with good hot water and well functioning bathrooms. The included breakfast is an absolute treat with eggs made to order, local bread and jam and out of this world delicious cappuccino. We really enjoyed our time in Ollantaytambo in no small part thanks to Henry and Katy who also helped organize a ride up through the valley for us. We will DEFINITELY come back to Casa Del Abuelo. It is a magical place.
Henry was a great host! We loved staying at his place. His staff consisted of Finnish and Japanese personnel who made us feel welcome and comfortable. The location was very good and amenities wonderful. Of note: the shower worked wonderfully and the breakfast was outstanding.
Catty is very friendly and welcoming. She prepares everything for you to enjoy. Rooms are 4 star hotel level clean and well equipped with hair dryer,towels and etcs. The location is right close to Ollantaitambo ruins. You can see it from the back windows. We spent the Christmas Eve there and it was wonderful hearing all the fireworks just like Spring Festival in China. Breakfast with hot chocolate was fabulous.
We had a very pleasant stay at Catty's place.
First of all, the location is absolutely perfect! Right in front of the ruins, and a 10 mn walking distance from the train station to Aguas Calientes.
Then Catty and her husband were extremely nice and thoughtful. On the morning we went to Machu Picchu, they had prepared us a lovely breakfast box for us to bring. The next day, the breakfast was absolutely delightful!
Our room was also very comfortable, with a nice private bathroom, and on top of that, the relaxing sound of the river passing just a few meters below...
