If I could give this hotel 10 stars, I would! Yes, they are not a five-star property, but everything about this hotel is simply super. Their breakfasts are always made to order and the chef knows you by name. The staff always went above and beyond of what you might expect. One day, my son managed to get his hoodie... More

Beautiful hotel, very convenient to Plaza de Armas. Excellent service. We stayed for two days, left to go to Colca Canyon and Puno for three days, then returned here for two days. Picked us up at airport, picked us up at bus terminal on return, and delivered us back to airport. Great breakfast. Front desk was exceptional. Highly recommended.

I learned that "tambos" refers to "resting" in the Quechua language and it's a good word for this very well run and friendly hotel. It is located just around the corner from the Plaza, with all majors sites within easy walking distance. Our room, a double, was small but well fitted out with all you would need. The bed was...

If there is a more competently run hotel, I'd like to know about it! Every detail has been considered and the professionalism of the staff at every level is exceptional. For an extended stay, they will pick you up and return you the airport. The included breakfast has many freshly prepared options and Ammi is the consummate host, welcoming us... More

My son and I stayed for three nights and it is probably difficult to add anything really to the rave reviews this little unassuming but hyper friendly hotel is SO justified in gettingvery warm and friendly reception, tea available on arrival, warm atmosphere in the reception, masses of magazines and books to look at good room with very comfy bed,...

Los Tambos is a small, midrange hotel located about three minutes walk from the central town square and is therefore wonderfully juxtaposed within walking distance of many tourist attractions, restaurants, markets, and shopping. Service here is exceptional by any standard - the staff are multilingual, very warm and friendly, happy to accommodate any guest wishes or assist you with any... More

My wife and I stayed at Los Tambos on our trip to South Peru last May/June. This year, I returned for a very similar itinerary with my daughter. We stayed three nights at Los Tambos, and had a really great experience. We had commitments that took us out of the hotel too early for breakfast on the second and third... More

From the outside, there is really nothing to call attention to this little gem. It is stuck in between a couple of non-descript shops. However, inside you are immediately welcomed into a little world of peace, quiet, and care for the traveller. I was recovering from altitude sickness when we arrived, and the manager immediately helped me by serving tea... More

The location is awesome and the staff very helpful and attentive. I checked in one day after my bday and they offered me a cake. They booked my colca canyon trek. They gave me a snack for my trek as i have missed the breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay.
