I stayed here with some friends for 4 nights around our visit to Machu Pichhu in november 2016. The rooms are very ok , the breakfast very good but the best part are the people, very friendly and warm.

Our stay at Picaflor Tambo was perfect. The location is just a block or so from the plaza, up a pedestrian only cobblestone street with a stream running down the side of it in a little canal. The guesthouse is very quiet and very clean, it's obvious that the family that owns this takes great pride in their property and...

Really nice place in Ollantaytambo. Hostel has a small number of rooms. As we visited it during off-season time we were the only travelers there. Place is really cozy and clean. Double rooms are just awesome. Especially the one called "inti". Huge, having window, two small balconies, fresh lilies and big bathroom. This is one of the best rooms we...

We stayed here for 3 nights in October. I loved the views of the mountains & the granaries. We did not have any noise issues as some others have mentioned. We were there on Wed, Thurs, & Fri. The noise issue is perhaps on weekend only???The beds were comfortable, bathroom adequate. Breakfast was simple, but good. Staff was very helpful...

driving through town as we were just arriving into Ollantaytambo, I was concerned as many places appeared down right shabby to say the least. My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Picaflor hotel in Ollantaytambo about 10 days ago for a couple of nights. I believe it is rated a 4 star hotel. It is charming and...

Stayed here three nights. Really loved the place. Spacious, well-appointed, high ceiling room, with a couple of small balconies with a view of the Granaries, next to a street water canal that made it sound like you were sleeping next to a bubbling stream. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Clean. Good location. Was looking forward to giving it the best possible...

In can't believe this. Writing this review at 2.30 am and still like we are in a discotheek. When we checked in it was quiet decent and looking a great hotel... but tonight we discovered otherwise. When you love a big party in your sleeping room go here.. otherwise skip it. One remark. Maybe it is only at Saturday. By...

Thank you for your review. Please find our reply to your comments Occassional weekend nightlife, is presently beyond our control as the local people of Ollantaytambo enjoy their weekends and festivities in town. However the Mayor and the Muncipality are now proceeding to re-locate bars from Qosqo Ayllu in accordance to the law and demands of the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood...

I spent two nights at Picaflor Tambo, on my way through to Aguas Calientes. The room I had was very generous in size, and ticks all the boxes - clean, comfortable bed and spacious. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and going to sleep with the sound of the running water was a treat....blissful! Definitely recommend Picaflor Tambo if...

I loved this place. They helped arrange transportation from the airport in Cusco, and the driver drove me to the hotel. Antonio was there to greet me, and showed me up to my room. The room was nice. Very cozy and clean. I had a nice little balcony overlooking the street, and some of the mountains towering above Ollantayyambo. I...

You will get your basics at Picaflor Tambo. The room we stayed at (2 person) was small but enough for the 1 night stay we had. We were getting up the next day at around 4am for the Inka Trail and was very glad that the house prepared a takeaway package for us for breakfast. The only thing to note...
