The colonial layout and pleasant atmosphere created a nice relaxing place to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the city outside. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty good, including eggs and fresh juice. The rooms are big, but they are clean and nice with high ceilings. Great views of the city out the windows.

Based on the standards of Peru/Cusco, this hostel was a great base to explore the sacred valley. Our group of 10 stayed 3 days ahead of/ 2 days after Inca trail hike. Staff was very accommodating. Grounds were beautifully maintained. Nice (comp) breakfast. Rooms were inconsistent: some rooms had instant hot water (#206) others never did after 15 min (3xx)....

Was pleasantly surprised by the location, service and cleanliness of this hostel. Also recovered complimentary airport transfer which was great as we were bombarded with taxi drivers trying to sell us rides for ridiculous amounts. Never pay more than $10usd for a airport transfer if you can help it as taxis are very cheap in Cuzco. Lots of lovely restaurants...

We stayed 2 days before our Inka trail trek and the 3 days after. The rooms were cozy and I was quite surprised to find American tv shows on the tv. The bed were comfortable and the down comforters made all the difference as the mornings and evenings were a bit chilly. The showers took a few minutes to get...

Our family of four spent one night at this lodge in late March. Location is good about 15 min walk from main square with great views of the city from lodge balconies. Breakfast is juice, eggs, coffee or tea and fruit salad. Our room was crowded with four beds and located right above the breakfast area. We asked for a...

I have been working outside of Cusco for the last couple of years, so I make regular trips through that town. I always try to stay at the Amaru 2 when I need a hotel in Cusco. It is a great deal for the money, lovely rooms, good breakfast, lovely little garden that has wifi reception. During the rainy season...

Our group of 6 rented 3 rooms for several nights before hiking the Inca Trail and one night after our return. Originally we were disappointed to not be booked at Amaru I, but found Amaru II was on a quieter street and just a short walk to restaurants and the Plaza. All our rooms were very nice and their are...

This place is amazing! Much more expensive than most hostals but so worth it. It's setting and view is lovely and our room was big and spotless. Staff were helpful as even lent us guide books to plan our trip. Great Place!

It gets really cold here at night and so the down comforters were really helpful. The beds were fantastic, and even though we had fun days planned it was hard to get out of bed! Showers were open and huge but the bathrooms got musky and humid really fast. If the bathrooms were a little better ventilated it would have...
