My friends and I (6 of us) stayed at Amaru II before and after the Inca Trail hike. If you were to go to Cusco and want some recommendations on lodging, I would certainly recommend this place. The staff were amazing, well spoken (english and spanish), helpful. They help you arrange local city tours and the great thing about this... More

We did not actually book this hotel, but were moved from another hotel nearby that was overbooked. It was quite cold in Cusco and this place had the best heating and plenty of hot water. It was very clean, the bathroom was sterile and really nice. Breakfast a bit disappointing. Excellent location, short walk from the main plaza. Lovely fruit... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights, two before our trek to Machu Picchu and one afterward. The staff were very helpful, arranging for our airport pickup, calling cabs, giving us directions, and allowing us to store our large bags while we were trekking. Breakfast was delicious. It was made to order and served early enough that we... More

I was really impressed by the staff at Amaru 2, so friendly and helpful beyond expectation. The accommodation itself is super too. We stayed here on two occasions, on our first and last nights in Cusco. They have a free pickup shuttle from the airport and on leaving they got us a taxi for 15 soles (about 20 - 30... More

This place is great, don't think twice about it! Location, views, staff, all perfect. I also have stayed in Amaru I, the same quality and standard, had a great time and felt at home in this beautiful Inca Town.

Stayed here during our week in Peru, due to a mix-up at the other Amaru location. By far, this was the better accommodation! Rooms were comfortable and roomy, with large bathrooms. Views of the city are spectacular. Hotel staff was phenomenal - most spoke very passable English, and they all went out of their way to help us with our... More

There was 4 adults traveling together and we all loved this place ! A nice comfy bed, GREAT STAFF !!!, great neighborhood, simple breakfast, and just over all good time. We were only supposed to stay here 2 nights but ended up booking an extra because we wanted another day of solid rest....

We stayed here 3 nights then left for the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu and returned again for a night. Our first room on the second floor was tiny. We couldn't find a place to have our two carry-on suitcases open. The bathroom was up some steep stairs inside our room and was also miniscule. The room on our final... More

We stayed here for 2 nights before we did the Inca Trail and then 2 nights after. The staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was lovely with fresh orange juice, fruit salad and grains, yoghurt, coffee, bread rolls and an egg cooked whichever way you like every morning. You would not believe this was a 2 star hostel... More

Rooms beds bathrooms all comfortable and not spartan. The hotel is quiet, in the interesting San Blas district a few minutes walk from the city's central square. The breakfast is excellent for the price. The staff are all helpful and courteous. No problem to store your bags while you set off for Machu Pichu. Many good restaurants in the streets... More
