We had a large group with several rooms. All were clean and nice, some had great views. Every one was pleased with the breakfast (cereal & yogurt, bread, eggs to order, and beverages). The courtyard was lovely with a nice seating area and hot coca tea. The Hostel picked up most of our group at the airport as planned, but... More

This place had such good reviews we gave it a try before we left to go back to Lima in the morning. Both my sister's family of 7 and my family of 5 stayed here. Jose and his manager agreed via email that the 6 am ride to the airport in the morning would be covered by Amaru in place... More

Amaru is very comfortable hotel, with Spanish patio. The friendly staff is happy to help you. There is always a refreshing coco tea in the courtyard. Each room has a heater.It located close to the center on a cute narrow street. Very good price!

I could give this hostal a 5 stars rating only if the staff and specially the reservation agent or owner "Jose Lovon " were more honest at the time of my reservation about the extra that i need to pay because we were 4 people (2 adults and 2 children ages 7 and 5) . At the time of the... More

Cozy and with the needed ammenities. A bit far from the city center. Friedly staff and very good breakfast . They kindly stored our luggage while we visited Aguas Calientes and Machu Picchu. No internet in the rooms.

The rooms were very big, heated, comfortable. Also the best shower we had during our trip in peru. Breakfast was good with tasty crunchy breads. The hotel looks nice, very cusco-style with the wooden balcony and the location is in a very nice hip and mondial neighbourhood of the city. Service is very friendly and professional. The only minus is... More

My girlfriend and I needed to acclimatize before doing a 4 day trek into the Andes. We toured around Cisco and needed a place to stay. The Amaru II was great! It was in a good location, had friendly staff and provided a nice breakfast every morning. They stored our bags during our trek and we were not worried about... More

This cute little hostal is quite clean. It has hot water (for showers only) and heat (at night only). Not every place offers hot showers so be sure to ask. The price includes breakfast, and it's basically a basket of breads, yogurt with fruit and cereal, and eggs. The staff here is very friendly. You can also ask the hotel... More

This is a pretty hotel, on a good location, just a few minutes by foot from the Plaza de Armas. The rooms, normally, are clean. The breakfast is no buffet, but is good. There is a good view on Cuzco from the hotel and the hotel is located in a colonial house. But the first night I had to spend... More
