There are two reasons why I am giving this hotel an average review: small rooms and very poor noise insulation. Regardless of the location of your room (our room was on the fourth floor), you can hear people talk in the lobby and doors get shut at all hours of the day. Although the hotel staff were very nice and... More

I had a very good stay at Los Tambos hotel for two nights. It has a perfect position, just a few steps from the main square and attractions of Arequipa. The staff is extremely kind and they contacted me in advance to offer me their help in organizing my trip. Indeed, I booked an enjoyable one day trip to the... More

We stayed there for 3 nights, Arequipa is a beautiful town, love it. The service was excellent, we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff just as we arrived from the airport. Airport transfer is free by the way. Staff also helped to give food recommendations and make booking. Location wise, it is less than 5 minutes walk from the... More

Sited just off the Plaza del Armas, the location is extremely good. You can walk to the major sights, and to restaurants in the city centre. We were extremely satisfied with the price, and given we were staying two nights, were able to get a complimentary pick-up from the airport. We were a family of four, and they had anticipated...

let me start off by saying that the location is excellent. The staff of this hotel is outstanding. Friendly, helpful, well organized. Could not ask for better people to welcome you to Peru! The room was VERY clean, but tiny and very plainly and simply furnished. The bathroom was clearly renovated and was very spacious and nice. The breakfast is... More

This is a fantastic place to stay in Arequipa. Just off the Plaza de Armas, it's close to downtown shopping and restaurants. While our rooms were not outstanding, they were clean and bright. What stands out about Los Tambos are service and value. We were picked up and dropped off at the airport at the hotel's expense. Our friendly driver... More

We stayed 2 nights at Los Tambos, a decision guided by the high ratings on Trip Advisor. My review is mostly positive (I would rate it 3.5 if Trip Advisor allowed) - Pros and shortcomings listed at the end of this review. Overall, Los Tambos is a relatively new hotel and will no doubt improve over time with more experience.... More

Centrally located and within walking distance to the main square, restaurants and museum (to visit juanita) Rooms are quite small but clean and comfortable. When we first got to the hotel we had a tiny room and talked to the Manager who moved us to another room which was slightly bigger. Think European rooms and you will have an idea... More

Believe what you read from all the positive reviews. No doubt i shall be echoing a number of these as my experience was fantastic, so good in fact it set the standard too high for other hotels/accommodation to live up to! I often book accommodation based upon location. Los Tambos is perfectly positioned and is in a very safe location.... More

Aside from its wonderful location, less than one minute away from the main square, this hotel has a lot to offer. Rooms are large and well decorated, with comfortable beds, and no noise. Bathrooms are spotless, with hot shower. Good wifi connections. Excellent breakfast. And on top of it, super friendly staff who gave us lots of very useful tips... More
