I stayed here six nights. If you want to be near the main plaza of Arequipa, this hotel is as good as any. The rooms are pretty basic, but clean and comfortable. My room had a strong wifi signal. The TV was pretty small, but I never used it, so that didn't matter to me. My room had a low-end... More

Right off the main square - within walking distance of everyplace you would want to visit in Arequipa. Airport pick-up included. Breakfast was delicious - and made to order (the quinoa pancakes were so good, I had them each morning). Room and shower were big, clean, comfortable. Wifi a bit weak - but you're on vacation - get off your... More

Stayed here for 3 nights to acclimatise and relax after a long journey and it was a great choice. Very welcoming, helpful staff. Log fire in the reception with comfy sofas and a nice little outdoor-ish courtyard to sit quiety to take phone calls. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful, from advising on the altitude to... More

Well located near the central square, Contemporary design and furnishing, good sized rooms. The hotel provides airport transfers both ways, charming & chatty driver. The hotel staff are well trained and courteous. The general manager Thomas who is multi lingual is very helpful. Highly recommended!

Location cannot be beat, less than two minute walk from the main square. Get the King suite, very spacious and is the only room on the top floor. Front desk staff spoke excellent English and was very helpful. On the day of our early departure (before breakfast hours), boxed breakfast was provided. We also appreciate the complimentary airport transfers.

Los Tambos is ideally located, less than a block away from the main square. The hotel's best asset is the excellent service from the staff. May stay started with a personalized welcome letter, coffee on arrival, recommendations to suit my personal itinerary and genuinely interested (and interesting) people. I was checked in early and offered a complimentary late check out... More

This small hotel is centrally located, a half block from the main Plaze. It is spotlessly clean, tastefully appointed, and serves an excellent breakfast. What really sets it apart is the warmth and helpfulness of the staff. They go above and beyond - airport pickup is included if you stay 2 or more nights, if the hotel is not fully... More

Very clean hotel and rooms, very friendly and helpful staff. They had initially said they would pick up from the airport when we booked 2 months back, but later offered to pick us up from the airport for a fee. I reminded them of their original free pickup offer and they honored it without any questions. Even sent 2 taxis... More

Everything about Los Tambos was perfect. The location was ideal....just steps from most points of interest and many restaurants. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They helped with dinner reservations and arranged a city tour for our group of 4. The itself hotel was charming, breakfast was fresh and delicious, our rooms were large and very clean. Unfortunately, we... More

This place goes above and beyond. The night before checking out they called to ask if we need to store our bags, and whether we needed a taxi to help leave for our next destination (and had made note of where that was). Just a small example of the fine touches. They serve an excellent breakfast - try the quinoa... More
