Returned this evening from a 10 day trip to Peru. Los Tambos was without a doubt the best place we stayed. The location cannot be beat in Arequipa, and the staff was absolutely wonderful. Friendly, helpful, cheerful, accomodating employees, all very knowledgeable about the area, with excellent recommendations. Tasty made to order breakfast with the best variety of options we... More

Excellent location, 1/2 a block off the main plaza is perfect and hard to imagine a better location. Excellent staff. They arraigned transport from both the bus and airport for us; They will help you select tours or find you a private driver (Carlos was great!). Small things make a difference - and they pay attention to the small things... More

Best things about this hotel is the location and service. Located about half block from Plaza de Armas on a slightly more local street with locally priced fast food restaurants. Arequipa center is tiny, but this location makes it even more tiny to visit Arequipa in 1 day. About 3 minute walk to Plaza de Armas, 5-7 minutes to Santa... More

This hotel was very nice! Perfect location, comfortable room, professional staff, good breakfast! And the manager speaks French (in addition to English, Spanish and Portugese)... A place to visit! Romain (Belgium)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Los Tambos. The hotel is situated close to the main square and within walking distance to most sites we wanted to see in the city. The staff was very courteous and tended to our needs and wishes for tours and information on the city. Breakfast was delicious and the outdoor terrace was a lovely... More

The service is the reason that makes Los Tambos so special. The staff is so corteous and understanding. The rooms are small, but very clean and comfortable. The wifi connection was poor, but that's how it is in most hotels in Peru. The breakfast was one of the best I've had. It's a made to order breakfast with coffee, tea,... More

We were extremely well greeted by all the staff, especially by the manager. They helped us in every way they could by making reservations, instructing us about where and what to visit, during our stay in Arequipa. The breakfast was very good, too. I would suggest that they improve the tv and wifi service, and regulate the hot and cold... More

Los Tambos is centrally located near the Plaza de Armas in walking distance to many main attractions. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, setting up two awesome tours for us during out visit. The rooms were clean but as mentioned previously, small. But who spends time in a hotel room anyway when in such a cool city! The breakfasts... More
