Hostal Iskay is a very short 5 min walk from the Ollantaytambo ruins, in fact it is right across the river from the ruins. It is a beautifully manicured property and very reasonable for the price. Rooms are small, but the patio views are awesome. The property is beautifully curated with flowers & benches. It is also walking distance from... More

A little hard to get your luggage up the hill through the narrow streets but worth the climb. Very economical and close to the center of town. Very small room but very clean. Good place to stay to tour the nearby ruins.

I would return to Peru just to stay here again. Room 7 is separate from other structures, quiet, spacious and very comfortable. If you leave the bathroom window open, the cat can visit when she wants. Breakfast was very good; fresh.

Stayed here after reading good reviews, and wasn't disappointed. Stayed in room 4 which was quiet away from reception with a great view. Comfy beds with nice warm blankets. Bathroom was ok with nice hot water. Only a 2 minute walk to the square and restaurants. Wifi was good, as was the included breakfast. We had trouble finding this place... More

We had great views of the ruins from our room and also from the chairs in the garden just outside our room. The bottom part of the walls in the room is ancient stones, with the top all new--very nice. A nice shower and bed were appreciated. Our hosts were very helpful, and I would stay here again if I...

We absolutely loved our stay at Hotel Ishkay! It was clean and comfortable and just what we needed after climbing Machu Picchu. The staff were incredibly kind and helpful. Can't recommend this place enough!

It was a bit of a challenge finding the hotel. We were coming from Pisac and the driver had never been there before (it's also not easily accessible by car). When we arrived there was no one at the front desk. After waiting twenty minutes, we looked up in the book on the reception desk what room we were booked... More

Rooms 6 and 7 are the best for quiet rooms with outside sitting areas. The view is wonderful, and the grounds are pretty with many flowers and plants. Request a "box" breakfast if you are leaving early. I was very satisfied with arranging a driver to meet us in Cusco and take us around the Sacred Valley. It is more... More

Overall, our experience at Hostal Iskay was extremely satisfying. I could cite many reasons for that, but, a great deal comes from the manager and every member of his staff. They always went to great extents to be friendly and helpful and that in itself expanded our experience more than I would have imagined. In fact, they stand out as... More

We spent the first 3 nights of our trip to Peru at Hostal Iskay, and what a perfect place to start! Our room was simply but artfully decorated. The bathroom was clean and modern. The beds were warm and cozy. Great view of the Fortress from our window and our lovely sitting area outside. We whiled away several mornings, just... More
