Stayed here for 3 nights in September, what a great experience. The rooms and public areas are all well maintined and clean. Very impressed in what is a hostel! The location is very close to main square and all amenities. The nature of Cusco is very hilly and this is located on a very steep narrow street. The location is...

Spend 2 or 3 nights there. Hotel is closed to city center and I liked the classical spanish style of hotel. so nice rooms, nice terrace, good staff and simple Peruvian breakfast. I can recommend this hotel for travelers who are staying in cusco few days.

The location of this property is very good. Free pick up FROM the airport was a bonus. We stayed one night before going to MP and one night after MP. The first night we got a room on the first level, which was really nice, clean and spacious, bed was comfy too.We could see the city Cusco from the top...

Amaru Hostal is a great hotel with a lot of charm. It's well-located and within easy walking distance to the main Plaza de Armas and most of the city's main sites. There are little restaurants, cafes, gift shops and convenience stores open late all up and down the street it's on. However, note that it's on a very steep and...

I had a price on booking.com of $60 but they added tax on when I paid, no discussion. It also claims free airport transportation. Since I came by bus I assumed I would have a free service to the airport on my way back. No. The room was average, creaky floorboards above and overpriced (more so with tax). The only...

The building itself is lovely, and our room (a double ensuite) was well furnished and clean, but it was located above a staircase and was very very noisy with people coming and going all night. Breakfast was good and fresh (served rather than buffet), and the location was good, but we checked out early because of the noise-it was impossible...

Stayed here for the last 3 nights of our trip. The rooms are clean and roomy. The breakfast here was by far the best we had. Fruit and yogurt, with breads, eggs, juice, coffee, or tea. The place is very very clean! I would recommend this place to anyone of our friends coming to cusco.

From the driver they send to pick you up at the airport, to the free coca tea, to the friendly front desk, to the beautiful hotel itself -- this place was great! Cusco is small, but this place manages to be in a central location nonetheless. The driver was really friendly and the ride was pretty cheap! Especially for the...

Stayed here the last two nights of our trip. Just a little uphill from Plaza de Armas, it's easy to get around on foot. Beautiful garden areas throughout as well as as tucked away deck areas to sit in. The bed was comfortable and room warm at night. Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from. Free coca tea offered...

Our family stayed here prior to hiking the Inca Trail. We had 5 rooms, so we basically had the top floor of one side. It was so nice to sit out on the veranda and enjoy the city view and each other's company. The staff here is very friendly and hard working. Someone was always cleaning something. The only downside...
