One of the best experiences ever! The rooms are nice, modern, kept clean at a fair price but the amazing staff and service take it to another level! They helped me to make the most out of my 4 days in beautiful Arequipa with tips and directions for restaurants and sights, arranging my trip to Colca Canyon where I was... More

We stayed here for New Year's Eve and had a wonderful stay. The hotel staff are incredibly friendly, the rooms are great value and the breakfasts are great. The hotel has 2 lovely roof terraces and our room had a huge balcony onto the street. While the Internet might not be the fastest in the world, I think this was... More

This was a very nice, clean hotel with outstanding service. The staff was kind and flexible in helping us switch rooms and making arrangements for tours and dinner. Best and friendliest service of our two week trip to Peru. Excellent breakfast in a lovely location, with two different terraces where guests can relax and enjoy a view of El Misti.... More

Just a 100m from the plaza des Armas, this hotel is very well located, and still rather quiet street. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and organised my trip through the Colca valley, as well as making the great suggestion of taking the free walking tour of Arequipa.

Most notably the hotel staff was very flexible and helpful, adjusting superbly to our plans and schedules.They made an effort arranging to return things unintentionally left behind. The location is very convenient for exploring the town centre. The room size was relatively small - the only (and minor) inconvenience.

Ok, our room was small but also clean and included all necessities. But whatever the room size, the real strength of this hotel, in addition to the truly central and convenient location, is its staff. I stay in all kinds of hotels, from luxury to basic, all over the world. This one has the most friendly, helpful and welcoming staff... More

We spent several nights in this property and was very pleased with almost everything. The rooms were well appointed and the breakfast was excellent. The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive with all our questions and request. The 1 draw back was that there was someone below us smoking in the bathroom where the ventilation shaft that came right into... More

Next to City Center, amazing interior decor mixing modern and traditional, super friendly staff. Probably the best overall value for the money during my trip to Peru where we mixed high and low end accomodations.

I was at Los Tambos for four nights. The two different rooms I had were nice, with good beds, the bathrooms belong to the best I have seen during my vacation in Peru. Breakfast was also very good; it is served on the top floor. You can sit on the balcony with a view if you want. I left for... More

One block from main square, this quaint boutique hotel has very good service. Speak English well. Clean. Overheard them explaining the entire city to a couple. Only 4 floors. I read complaints of noise but I was overlooking street on 3rd floor and no noise. Nice room and bathroom. Huge TV with many channels. Water took awhile to warm but... More
