“Can't fault them, great choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

This hotel is in a great location...away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Square but in easy walking distance. The hotel provided excellent service - very friendly, English speaking and happy to go above and beyond. The hotel itself has alot of character, is very clean, quiet and the rooms are spacious and well presented. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept it!! The breakfast is fresh and delicious. This is a great choice of hotel... we would definitely recommend it.

This is a lovely small property not far from the center of Cuzco. The various interior courtyards are quiet, attractive and spacious, as was our room. The English skills of the staff were a bit spotty, but they seemed to go out of their way to try to accommodate us, especially when my wife became ill. We'd certainly go back.

Courtyard-style hotels are not for everyone, especially if you want to sleep in. Breakfast at Tambo was also a bit scant.

we enjoyed our visit to the hotel, we spent there 7 day during August 2011.
the rooms are very well maintained.

since it is a new hotel things were not running smooth - we had to remind the reception to turn on the heating system, the showers of the 2nd floor room didn't had enough hot water (which was fixed later on),towel were changed only every two days unless asked for.
the breakfast was basic (with compare to the same grade hotels that we stayed in)

the location of the hotel although only 4 blocks from the Plaza but was up hill.

the reception desk was very helpful, English speaking.

Newly & stylishly decorated. Very modern bathroom with powerful hot shower. All rooms set around a pretty courtyard with arches. Staff really helpful. Pleasant breakfast. Double doors from room, leading to the courtyard, but no windows, so a bit gloomy in the room when the doors were shut. Lovely to have heating and a kettle in the room. Good location, about 10 mins walk fom the main square.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms don't have windows, just doors that lead onto the courtyard. I'd ask for a...

Tambo del Arriero is an excellent boutique hotel. Good location, close to restaurants and most tourist attractions in Cusco. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate any needs at all hours. Breakfast is simple, good, with fresh fruit, enough for a good start. They do prepare breakfast at 4am if you are leaving on a tour.
Excellent choice for your visit to Cusco.

Room Tip: The bigger the room the more difficult to warm it up, remember it can get pretty cold at night in Cu...

Tambo del Arriero Boutique Hotel is very comfortable, clean, architecturally charming, and is conveniently located to everything in Cusco. The staff is very courteous, knowledgeable and extends themselves to the fullest to make your stay pleasant. As a pet-friendly hotel, they welcomed me, Raja the Shih Tzu, with open arms. I stayed with my family in a wonderful large deluxe room with a comfortable queen bed, modern bath facilities, and lots of room for me to run around!. A healthy breakfast is served every morning in their upstairs’ dinning room. We highly recommend this boutique-style hotel for either a short or lengthy stay. In our opinion, stay a least 3-4 days to explore the many interesting sites in Cusco before departing to Machu Picchu.and while acclimatizing to the high altitude..

We stayed for three nights in Cuzco. The hotel is quiet centrally located (walking distance from the main square). good and friendly reception. Cuzco gets cold at night time. but the rooms were cozy and warm. Bathroom was set at high standards. Best breakfast we had during our whole trip through Latam!
