This was so wonderful place to stay. Really nice place, and NICE PEOPLE. Really friendly. I opt for the tour leaving at 2:30 AM and they prepare a breakfast package. In other hotels I would just miss my breakfast, but not hear. Very nice services. Also one other thing that I really appreciate is the fact that I ve arrived... More

Wish we had stayed longer. This is a charming place with the nicest staff and great service. Our room was small but beautifully remodeled - hotel has an elevator, nice comfortable bed and fluffy towels. The young lady at the front desk went personally to buy a soft drink for my husband when he asked for the nearest store. The... More

We had an absolutely AMAZING experience at Los Tambos! We were welcomed at the airport by a driver who was kind, energetic and had a bottled water for each of us. We pulled up to Los Tambos and the manager was opening the car door and welcoming us. We were offered tea as we entered and felt right at home!... More

A real gem of a hotel just off the plaza, the perfect location for anyone visiting Arequipa. The rooms are all very clean and comfortable; I really felt at home. The staff are all exceptionally nice and helpful, providing superb customer service. Everyone was so great but I must single out Lisset at reception who daily provided great recommendations for...

Los Tambos: just off the plaza de armas good price clean rooms - relatively small, as are all the rooms I have seen in Arequipa good bed decent... More

Chocolate cake for breakfast! What a surprise on our first morning, when after breakfast, my husband was served a huge piece of chocolate cake! Someone had heard me mention that it was his birthday. From the moment we stepped out of the taxi from the airport with the charming and knowledgeable driver Carlos and were met by the ever helpful... More

Our appreciation of this hotel started on our ride in from the airport with their driver, Carlos. He pointed out the sights and regaled us with the charms of Peruvian food from cuy to chicha morada. Upon arrival, Los Tambos staff met the taxi and quickly brought our suitcases into the lobby and up to our room. The charming General... More
