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.
Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff. What i really loved was that they weren't imposing, they were so chilled, relaxed and patient. From the moment we arrived, refreshment drinks offered and comfy seating offered. After a long haul flight i am prone to being a little grumpy however staff were friendly and not overbearing. Thank you.
Rooms were comfortable and very clean.
Bathrooms were lovely, my only grumble was with the toilet seat - it seamed to have hard edges, which made sitting a little uncomfortable. (Sounds weird i know)
Breakfast - what can i say, the best i had in Peru - seriously - lots of love in the food, with homemade triangle bread which i looked and longed for in every place i went on to but never found. Fruit, yoghurts, pancakes, cereals, juices were all to a very good standard. Loved going upstairs for breakfast, again staff were lovely.
Not part of this hotel however i must mention the free walking tour (meeting point at the Plaza) - fantastic
To sum it up…this is the place to stay. Would love to return to Arequipa and if i did i would be staying here, highly recommended and well deserved to be the number one place to stay in Arequipa.
