El Albergue Ollantaytambo , Peru

Offering rooms with impeccable rustic style décor and garden views, this inn just 19 miles from Machu Picchu, features red tiled terraced Spanish galleries and views of the surrounding scenery.

Originally opened in 1925 by the name of “Hotel Santa Rosa," El Albergue is a historic and romantic lodge, located in the Ollantaytambo train station little more than an hour away from Machu Picchu and the city of Cusco.

With only 16 rooms special detail is given to each and every one, resulting in an elegantly rustic style. Beautiful gardens visited by hummingbirds are engulfed by the aroma of fuchsia, passionflower, peaches and avocado trees which all adorn the early 20th century lodge. Step outside and catch the train to the spectacular ruins of Machu Picchu.

While you are at El Albergue you may spend your days visiting the Inca and Pre-Inca archeological sites of Ollantaytambo, Pisaq and Moray, river rafting and mountain biking, and enjoying the beauty and culture of the Andes.
