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

This hotel was very good for us. Not right at the city center but only 5min away on foot. The room was nice and we could let our big luggage there while going to the Machu Picchu. Being a little over the city gives a nice view.

Good location in the San Blas neighborhood. The front desk was very helpful and we were able to book a driver for a full day in the sacred valley for 230 soles. The breakfast was good enough and you can eat very early, starting at 5:30 AM (before leaving for Machu Picchu for example). Our room on the ground level... More

This pertains to Amaru I and Amaru II, as they are under the same ownership. Not knowing the details of the process for visiting Manchu Piccu (bus tickets, train tickets, entrance pass, etc.), I decided to book this through Amaru in advance. Instead of looking out for its customer, Amaru exploited my lack of knowledge, wildly overcharging me. When asked... More

We stayed here for overall 3 nights during our visit to Cusco and Machu Picchu, and we really liked this experience. We were actually booked at their Amaru Hostal I, but they had us moved here, but we did not complain. They have a very nice setting, pretty good rooms and facilities. Nice views from this place toward the Cusco... More

I escorted a group of high school students on a Spanish Immersion trip to Peru and we spent 3 nights here. The location is safe and within easy walking distance of the historic district, market and central Cusco. This is not a hostel in the traditional sense but more like a small economy hotel. Rooms were certainly adequate as a... More

Breakfast every morning is included which consists if coffee, tea, eggs, fresh fruit and bread. Breakfast starts early at 530am. The WiFi can be in and... More

This hotel, which is more a hotel than a hostel, has a good location in Cusco. The rooms are clean, breakfast is good (there's an excellent fruit salad!) and the staff is very helpful. I stayed there three nights with a group and it was great. Their laundry service is good and economical compared to other places.

This is more a hotel than a hostel, the rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast was simple but good for starting a day of sightseeing. The coffee was very strong, something that I appreciate when traveling. The location was very close to the main square, definitely go back again!
