“The best hotel in Arequipa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

After a trip to Peru where we suffered averaged hotels and down, it was great to get this hotel.
Great location in the city center and close to all main sites.
Excellent service and very courteous staff.
Rooms very clean and well equipped.
Excellent breakfast menu with a selection like a restaurant.
The hotel has a nice library, lobby seating area and sundeck on the roof and there is also parking in front of him.
In summary: Location, excellent service and courtesy! You have nothing to look for another hotel in Arequipa!

Room Tip: Rooms on side of the street are bigger.

Great location, lovely staff at reception and serving breakfast, very clean rooms and lovely modern bathroom, perhaps a tad small bedroom, a little noise from bedroom when people were moving about in hall/stairway, can choose from a selection for breakfast, great recommendation of LAND ADVENTURES tour of colca canyon and local restaurants, given map and orientation by reception on arrival, picked up from airport, free tea provided, would definitely recommend to all to stay here

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the street front, with a window for fresh air

We recently stayed at Los Tambos, and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Arequipa.  The hotel is in a great location (one block from the Plaza de Armas), the rooms are clean with huge beds, and the complimentary breakfast is delicious.  However, what impressed us most about Los Tambos was the amazing service provided by the staff. Vanessa and the staff at Los Tambos were extremely friendly and helpful.  From providing great recommendations of restaurants and things to do in Arequipa to arranging a tour to Colca Canyon before we arrived, Vanessa and the staff of Los Tambos consistently went above and beyond what was expected.

Great location. Rooms small but adequate. Only complaint is the water pressure. BUT the staff make the difference between a good holiday and a great one. Linda and the ladies on the desk went out of their way to help above and beyond the call of duty. Management you owe them a bonus!! The breakfast staff were only ever helpful. Don' t usually gush but this staff deserve it .

Después de unos días de mochileo, mis migos y yo llegamos a Arequipa y, fiándonos de los rankings the tripadvisor, decidimos darnos un pequeño capricho y dormir en un sitio mejor de dónde veníamos... y desde que entramos en la recepción nos dimos cuenta de que habíamos acertado: trato impecable, pequeños detalles, desayuno de lujo y camas comodísimas.
No puedo dejar de recomendar este hotelito, tan céntrico y maravilloso!

Los Tambos was fantastic the three nights we stayed there. The staff were all very helpful. Unfortunately I got sick from the altitude and a bacteria. Vanessa found a doctor and a clinic.
She also ran to three pharmacies to try and find oxygen for my ride to the airport. I can't thank her enough for all she did for us. Before I got sick she helped us find restaurants and local tourist places. The rooms were neat and clean. We could recommend this hotel to anyone.
Thank you to all the staff.

The warmest welcome to a hotel, coca tea in front of a roaring fire and very friendly staff. Breakfast was the best we had in Peru, broad choice including quinoa pancakes, and all made freshly to order. Very convenient location next to the main square. Newly decorated & clean. Hot shower. Lovely lady on reception was incredibly helpful as we were trying to arrange a non standard trip to the Colca Canyon. Good view of El Misti from the small roof terrace.
