Small Swiss-run hotel blending pre-Inca stonework with indigenous handicrafts and colonial design elements, including a lovely courtyard and terrace with panoramic views of the city.

The small Swiss-run Los Apus is on an atmospheric street in the artisan district of San Blas, a short distance uphill from the main square. In a style typical of Cusco, it fuses ancient features (including original pre-Inca stonework) with colonial design elements and indigenous artefacts to reflect the varied history and culture of the region.

From the foundations of a 17th century Spanish house, the hotel has been restored to accommodate 20 high-ceilinged guestrooms decorated in simple Andean style. There are two restaurants: one in a colonial-style courtyard bathed in light from the glass roof, and the other on the top floor where a panoramic view of the city unfurls from the rooftop terrace.

  • By fay the most memorable part was our time at refugio Amazonas.... The staff made our stay wonderful. Really cannot recommend this place enough. 

    JW, Swadlincote
  • The Inca Trail with the 3 day camping has to be the most memorable part.  It was an extraordinary adventure - tough, exhilarating, stunning and as a family with grown up children an amazing challenge to do as a group of 5. We all loved Peru and our holiday.  Peru surprised us.  It blew our minds.  The country is stunning, the people charming, the history fascinating and the food absolutely delicious.  We look forward to returning and maybe trying the Salcantay trek!  We will definitely want to return to El Tambo for more chill time!

  • The Peru holiday was all very well constructed. Favourite parts were the floating islands, the nocturnal canoe trip and the trek to Macchu Picchu. Organisation was brilliant and it all hung together very well. Thanks!
