Very Good 8.0
Excellent views, only issue, as this is an old building the floor (wooden made) is noisy on the common areas.
Rafael, ca3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Cute place but has no hot water. This was a big no from two travellers who returned from a rainy day in Peru. (By “no hot water” I mean freezing the entire time). Breakfast was average and the rooms were pretty clean.

Very Good 8.0
In general the hotel was very nice. It had a great view, friendly and helpful staff, and unique rooms. The bed in our room was not especially comfortable though. I would definitely recommend this hotel to any other travellers.
Sam, ca2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Lovely little oasis in the city. It's perfect for travellers that like to have a place to hang out and get some quiet after long days wandering about. The walls are a bit thin so bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper. Otherwise I felt quite at home and enjoyed my stay at Amaru thoroughly.
Soliska, ca3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
I was in Peru for 2.5 weeks and from Lima, to Nasca, to Arequipa, to Chivay, to Ollaytambo (I even stayed at a different hotel in Cusco) - Amaru Inca was my last hotel stay before I returned to Canada. I am so glad I chose to spend my last 2 nights there, it was by far THE BEST hotel I stayed at! Awesome location, super clean, amazing price, lovely views and garden terraces, good wifi, great service, quiet, and best of all, the shower was always HOT. I will 100% recommend this place to any of my friends who plans to visit Cusco!

Great location
I recommend this hotel. I especially appreciated the helpful staff when we encountered last-minute problems with our planned trip to Machu Picchu. The hotel is located about two minutes from the remains of an amazing Inca wall and is close to a square with many shops and restaurants.
