We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cuzco. Amaru is a short walk from Plaza de Armes where you find many tourist attractions. After walking around shopping and site seeing, the courtyard offered a lovely place to relax. The rooms are spotless and the staff have good English.

Yes taxis stop at the front door although the lane is very narrow.The problem you may have is that although the hotel is pretty central it is half way up a fairly steep lane.The altitude is such is such that even fairly fit people tend to puff quite a bit when walking back to the hotel although it's only steep for less than a hundred yards. When down the hill it's about 10 minutes,or less, walk on the flat to the central square

You might be able to get into your room early, but more likely you can/will leave your baggage in a secure area at your hotel. Then go enjoy an early morning.

The travel agent for our group of 14 had arranged for pickup at airport by the hotel. Transfer to airport on departure was done through hotel staff. There were a large number of taxis available at the airport. E-mailing the hostal for recommendations or suggestions is a good idea; they may be able to arrange transfer for you. If you get a cab at the airport, arranging the fare in advance is a good idea.

"all rooms are good!"
"A room around the main courtyard can be a little noisy but nothing too bad."
"Second floor rooms offer great views but you can get the same great views if you are on the first floor by walking out to the courtyard."
"Rooms at bottom of garden are quieter and have best views"
"Get room number 1 , great view"
US$53 - US$87 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
