The Amaru Hostal has found favor with many travelers to Cuzco for its central location, beautiful outdoor areas and cost-effective accommodations.
The building itself is a historic Colonial and Republican-era structure enclosing two sunny garden courtyards where guests can relax on couches and enjoy the fresh air.
Single, double and triple rooms are available, some of them with panoramic city views, and the friendly hotel staff give the place a pleasant, familial atmosphere.
Guests can exchange books and borrow guidebooks at the hotel library, chill out in the TV room and take advantage of amenities such as luggage storage, a safe, laundry service, wireless Internet and transfers to and from the airport, bus or train stations.
The Amaru Hostal is located in the heart of the San Blas neighborhood just two blocks from Cuzco's main plaza. Hatun Rumiyoc Street and the San Blas Church are less than a block away and the area is full of great bars and restaurants. San Blas is a peaceful area of the city known for its charming cobblestone streets and skilled artisans.

Good location just two blocks off the main square of the city. And Cusco is centrally located to many beautiful places. The people are very friendly. And it is the jumping off place to get to Machu Pichu.
