People go to Arequipa, the White City, for high altitude attractions and it's cool ambience. Los Tambos delivers high altitude service in spades. It richly deserves it's top trip adviser ratings. We stayed for two nights either side of a Colca Canyon trip. Nothing was too much trouble, from the free bus station and airport transfers, to the snack pack we got when we left for an early flight, to the free arrival breakfast when we arrived really early for check in, to tour bookings, to local advice, you name it. The cool thing about Los Tambos is simplicity. The place is simply decorated in a modern take on the prevailing architecture of Arequipa. Staff do not fuss either, they just get the job done in a highly guest centered way. Rooms are in great condition, but maybe some are on the small size. Wifi was a little hit and miss in our room, but that was just a directional thing. Breakfasts are very tasty, fresh and with just the right mix of stuff ie not sparse but not silly in range either. We cannot praise the team at Los Tambos enough. we have been travelling in SA for nearly 3 months and have developed a keen sense of what to expect and what excellent looks like. If you are lucky enough to secure a booking at Ls Tambos, then enjoy the hotel and revel in Arequipa, which is one the nicest little cities we have visited.
