“Cusco's Finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

In a town long on hopes and service but a little short on offerings, this hotel stands out and shines. Excellent staff and treatment as you find in all of Cusco in particular and in Peru in general. However, the ambiance, quiet location and room quality all stand out in this hotel. We stayed in an Executive Suite and were extremely happy with our choice. The rooms were extremely clean and service was top-notch. Please do try this hotel - you will not regret it!

we spent a week in Cusco and this hotel was perfect. the room was huge and so was the bathroom. The staff were really friendly and helpful - breakfast was delicious and they provided us breakfast even when we got up at 4.30am to go on our trek. They looked after our bags for 4 days when we were trekking and we felt they were very safe. It's about 5 minutes walk from the city centre which was perfect for us. overall we would highly recommend.

This hotel is excellent, and so are the prices. Boh guys at the front desk (Victor and Guido) helped me whenever I asked for directions or the location of a vegetarian restaurant. Each time Doris (housekeeping) cleaned the roomm she left two water botles by he sink (free of charge). The helped me choose a tour company (Tari Tours) and gave me safty tips, being a young woman travelling alone. I enjoyed it very much! Kudos!

Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Coca tea is available upon checking in, and hotel staff will arrange taxis if needed. Breakfast consisted of fresh bread, cheeses, ham, various fruits, fresh fruit juices, yogurt and grains, coffee, tea, and eggs cooked to order. We had a great visit and enjoyed our stay here.

A little walk from the main square but more than worth it. It's characterful rooms are stunning, such a nice atmosphere. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We had a minor crisis on the last day and the staff were life savers. We had stayed at another hotel closer to main square as well however Tambo is a far better choice. Couldn't fault it!!

Hola, kia ora. We booked about a month out at the gorgeous Tambo del Arriero en Cusco. Isobel who picked us up from the airport was friendly and it was no problems finding her. They had some problems with bookings on the day but we we were moved to a cute hotel called ʻRumi Wasiʻ which we really enjoyed (part of the adventure). We felt looked after at Tambo, the manager was a dude and we enjoyed hanging with him. Our room was lovely but no wifi, however they were trying to fix everyday and moved us to a luxury room for the last night at no extra cost. Breakfast (desayuno) was yum yum and far superior to anywhere else we stayed from there on. We stayed at a few places but for us, Tambo del Arriero was the best. Its bot super close to the Main Plaza however, not a problem to walk and let us be part of the local areas. We must have lost about 2 Kgs staying there (yay), it was also close enough to San Pedro Market. Taxiʻs are readily available and cheap (like 4 sol max) to get most places. I would definitely go back to Tambo del Arriero to stay without a second thought. Thanks peeps! Muchos Gracias!

Room Tip: If you cant get wifi (in the back rooms) then just ask to move rooms :)
