Picaflor is a nice guest house really close to the ruins, in a narrow street (so narrow that cars can´t get in), and very charming. At the street there is some water flowing like a small canal, it is really nice. The guest house is cozy and very clean, with a good shower, a good bed, good linen and towels, charming decor details. We stayed in 2 different rooms: for the first 2 days, a room on the ground floor, and the last night on the first floor. The first one was better. In the other one you can hear everything. Both had a problem: the doors had glass windows and the curtains were very thin -- not so good for privacy. Be aware in case you have lots of luggage: you have to tell the owner then she can contract someone to help. Although she wrote in her Airbnb page she would help with the luggage, when we arrived there, she said she couldn't do anything because her aid "was on his lunchtime". We had to insist: it wasn't just a matter of pushing suitcases for two or three blocks. The street is paved with cobblestones and that meant we would have to literally carry suitcases weighing 15 kilos or more.
Sorry you experienced difficulty with the luggage help and noise.
During the recent house refurbishment we have sought to preserve the Inca harmony with traditional building style, natural wooden floors and doors, worked stone, sustainable adobe walls.
We do have an active policy of contacting all our guests on their booking to offer our secure taxi service and help contacting us in advance. We do not have 24 hours porter as Hotels, we are a family guest house.
Picaflor was a beautiful place to stay and due to the small size of the town, very close to everything - we only wish we would have had more time to stay there. They were very responsive and also very helpful when we had to change our reservation at the last minute. The room and bathroom was very clean and we had ample hot water. I would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting Ollyantaytambo and the Sacred Valley!
My husband and I stayed at Picaflor Tambo on our way to and from Machu Picchu last week. What a delight!! Hilda and her staff are so hospitable and helpful, and their B&B is beautifully maintained. Their guest house is very well situated for access to the city square, restaurants, the train station and the entrance to the national preserve in Ollantaytambo. Some of the ruins you can even access just a few steps from Picaflor's front door! A great morning walk! Hilda hosts a "Happy Hour" in the early evening which is a wonderful opportunity to meet the other guests, one of whom had a birthday while we were there and was celebrated with a cake, candle and song! My husband wasn't feeling while we were traveling, and Hilda went out of her way to help us get the attention he needed. She rearranged rooms so we could stay another night, and by the next day he was better. How appreciative we were of her caring nature. (We may not have made it to Machu Picchu if she hadn't been so accommodating.) Hilda is an amazing host and we highly recommend Picaflor Tambo as a place to stay in Ollantaytambo. You won't be disappointed! And on a side note, Ollantaytambo is delightful place to stay in general. Wish we could have stayed longer!!
Great location for the price. Helpful staff. Right outside the door you can literally takes steps up to ruins. Minutes walk to the main square. Inti seems to be the best room, so request if you can. All the rooms are a little different. We didn't end up getting the rooms we requested. Good stay.
