I recommend this place highly! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! I don't speak much Spanish, but that was no problemo. We booked Amaru I originally, but were picked up at the airport free of charge and taken to Amaru II. I was told there was some renovation at Amaru I and they felt we would enjoy II better.... More

My fellow travelers and I were given a recommendation from a friend to stay here while in Cusco. It was tucked away from major hustle and bustle, but was still close to bars/markets/restaurants. The rooms were nice, spacious, had a hot shower (which you will realize is a luxury in Peru). There was a television in our room that we... More

We stayed there 7 nights in total. Rooms are nice, most with a great view, albeit a bit cold at night, and the heating did not work - there was a small additional electric heater though that did the trick. Overall clean and comfortable. Up in San Blas in a tight street with a very tight pavement - beware of... More

Full disclosure - I had originally booked Amaru Hostal 1, and was greeted at the airport with a complimentary transfer, as previously agreed. However it wasn't until we got to Amaru Hostal 1 that we were told "This isn't your stop. You are staying at Amaru Hostal 2." ... Uh oh. Alarm bells ! I've never had a booking not... More

We stayed here twice during our trip to Peru, and loved it both times. The hotel is in San Blas and has a beautiful view over the city. On our first stay we had a room on the end with a spectacular view from our little balcony. I'd recommend trying to get an end room with a view. The hotel... More

We stayed at the Amaru II for 2 nights. The hotel is in a great location in San Blas, only 5 minutes from the main square. The staff were really friendly and helpful and I thought the food in the restaurant was very good. Breakfast was basic but enough to get us going for the day. The view from the... More

This is my 2nd visit in Cuzco. The first experience was at Amaru 1 not so great last year, cause of there's no enough hot water in the shower and I had to rent the heater which didn't help at all, it was cold every day/night. But with Amaru II( staying for 4 nights), it's quieter, cleaner, more comfortable place... More

We spent a few nights in Amaru when exploring Cusco before and after our MP trek. It was amazing. So close to good restaurants and to city center. It was unforgettable stay. They had coca tea all the time which helped with the altitude.The breakfast service was a little slow. Front desk people were very nice.

Having so enjoyed our stay at the Amuru Valle Hotel, a couple days before, my husband and I decided to stay at this "sister" hostel in Cusco the evening of June 15, 2013. Immediately we were quite impressed with the establishment. It was very clean, spacious, comfortable and our room had a spectacular view of the city, as well as... More

We spent 5 nights at Amaru 2. The rooms were nice with good views of the city. The staff were really helpful no matter what queries we threw at them. And we completely disagree with the review below - the breakfast was the best we'd had in Peru and Bolivia! Really great way to start the day!
