I'm not sure how, but I think we got the best room in the house: Room 215, at the top corner of the back courtyard. Windows along two walls with stunning views over the red tile rooftops of Cusco and the hills beyond. A comfortable "matrimonial" with an additional single, lovely hardwood floors, and a clean tiled bathroom with a strong hot shower! The walls could perhaps use a fresh coat of paint, but there's really nothing to complain about here! Good breakfasts in the morning and friendly helpful service at the front desk.
Amaru is generally a quiet place but does get some neighbourhood noise: nothing extreme and nothing light sleepers can't remedy with a set of ear plugs (which if you're like me are a traveller's best friend anyhow). Ask for a room in the back courtyard. The gardens are lovely and home to a resident hummingbird (linger a little and you'll see him). Great location in San Blas about three or four blocks from the main plaza and conveniently just around the corner from delicious Jack's Cafe! It was a pleasure to stay and relax here on our last four nights in Peru.
