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

The staff were professional and extremely helpful. All of the dinner recommendations were excellent. The breakfast was great eggs cooked to order and some very wonderful local pastries. I do not usually tip the front desk staff at hotels but I left the ladies at the desk a tip just because they were so helpful.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Los Tambos. It is a small hotel just steps away from the main plaza, so we easily walked everywhere. The service was outstanding! The staff is professional, friendly, and helpful with all practical needs: ride to and from airport, tour arrangements for places outside Arequipa, restaurants, and more. The breakfast is cooked to... More

Great little hotel with friendly service, right in the middle of downtown, near all major attractions. Ideal place to explore Arequipa. We loved the room, location and service and would definitely stay there again!

Can't say enough about the great service at Los Tambos. Without exception, the staff was the friendliest and most helpful we have ever encountered at a hotel. They arranged tours, parking and taxis and always with a smile. The location could not be beat! A half a block from the main square and within a few blocks of museums, restaurants,... More

Los Tambos would be a 5 star if not for the beds. Most uncomfortable beds we slept in, in the 8 beds/rooms we had on our 3 week trip to Peru. The room was nice, they pick you up and return you to the airport (@ 1/2 hr trip), it is just 1/2 block from the main square thus very... More
