Hotel Description

Much like its sister hotel just a few blocks away, the Amaru Hostal II offers travelers a great value for their money on accommodations in a charming Colonial and Republican-era building. The hotel has a lovely garden courtyard where guests can rest among the greenery as well as scenic city views thanks to its hillside location.

However, the hotel's wonderfully helpful staff is perhaps its most outstanding asset. They are very accommodating and can assist with tourist information, laundry service, luggage storage and transfers to and from the airport or a bus or train station, among other services.

Rooms come in singles, doubles and triples, have cable TV and are very clean and well-kept. Some even have balconies. Guests can also access the Internet via two computers provided in the lobby, make international calls and exchange books or borrow guidebooks from the hotel library.


The Amaru Hostal II is conveniently located in the neighborhood of San Blas, just a couple blocks from the San Blas Church and a 10- to 15-minute walk uphill from Cuzco's main plaza. San Blas is a quieter area of town known for its artisans and picturesque cobblestone streets.

Food & Beverage

The hotel's American-style breakfast is a great way to start the day and coca tea is available all day long. There's also a coffee shop on site.

Great stay!
We had a great stay at Amaru II - the location is a 5 minute walk from the main plaza, the room was very nice (space heaters are available for an additional $3), and the staff was kind enough to arrange pickup/dropoff from and to the airport and the Poroy train station. The hostal also provides breakfast in the morning, which was very nice to have before heading out for the day to Cuzco and Machu Picchu. It was our second time staying at Amaru II and we highly recommend it.

This hostal is really good. Everything was correct: Clean, room available very early; breakfast was ok (bread could be better); the rooms we stayed were very good size, nice!.
Staff very kind and helpful, I was sick (chest) and they offer to call a doctor.
I really appreciate their hospitality and excellent service.
