"The staff is amazing! Felipe, who I think no longer works there, is truly caring and accommodating! He helped us through a complicated situation (unrelated to this hotel) and refused to accept tips from us afterwards.…"

About KB Tambo Hostal

Much of the town is laid out in the same way as it was in Inca times. Escape the crowds, and yet be a few yards from one of the most fantastic ruins on the planet! This is Ollantaytambo - the Living Inca City, and it possesses a wealth of history, culture, mountains and rivers.

‘KB Tambo’ is located at the top of the road from the railway station, at the intersection of the main road through town. Recently newly reconstructed with all private bathrooms, pleasant courtyard garden and awesome rooftop deck with ruins views. Our rooms are from $5 to $20, with the best beds and showers in town. They are amazing ! Our on site restaurant and bar has excellent food and drinks, and we promise to give you one of those 'special experiences' that you will always remember.

If you are interested in mountain biking, rafting, or trekking we can take you on the time of your life, inexpensively and throughout Peru. The owner, Will "KB" Janecek from Colorado USA, has been featured as a guide in Bike magazine and knows the local area extensively.

-Take a stroll through the town. There are still several houses dating back from Incan time.
-Ruins of Ollantaytambo - the only site where the Incas defeated the Spaniards in battle. Admission with ‘boleto turístico’ (can be purchased at entrance to ruins).
-Museo CATCCO is a cultural center and informational center for the town. It has a small store selling local handicrafts.
- Look for houses with red plastic bags hanging outside on posts. These houses are where locals go to drink Chicha, a local brew made out of corn. It is a great way to experience the local flavor, provided that you speak enough Spanish to communicate with the other Chicha drinkers.

Accommodation Information

All of our rooms have private bathrooms, and showers with 24 hour hot water - we use gas water heaters, not the cheap electric ones. We have Standard rooms for $15 a person that feature the same linens and baths as our suites, but dont have as nice of views of the ruins, etc. Our Garden View rooms face the garden and have nice views of the flowers but they are on ground level and so dont have ruin views. They are a little older, but they are very quiet and pleasant. Finally, we have our Suites, built brand new in 2007. Featuring high quality linens, mattresses, and bathrooms and showers, they also have views of either the gardens or the Incan ruins around town.
