Lovely rooms, great sheets and pillows! There is heat and high pressure hot water showrs! The staff was very helpful and friendly.

I stayed at six other places in Cusco, ranging from a hostel to a 4 star hotel, and Amaru Inca was by far the best. It was hard to leave. The decor was gorgeous, with ornate wooden furniture and beautiful art everywhere. The outdoor courtyard gardens were a perfect place for a cup of tea and to watch the sunset. There was 24 hour staff who were super helpful and mostly spoke English. It felt safe and relaxing. Will be my first choice next time I'm in Cusco.
