We stayed at Los Tambos for two nights on our June/July trip to Peru. All around, it was the best hotel we stayed at. From the time the driver picked us up at the airport until the moment we checked out, the service was absolutely top-notch. My husband's suitcase got "misdirected" to Buenos Aires out of Miami, and the front...

This was our favorite hotel during our two-week trip to Peru! PROS: --The hotel is in a perfect location, less than a block from the Plaza de Armas. Plus there's really good hole-in-the-wall lomo saltado restaurants on the same street (about $3 for two people for two plates and two drinks). --Super friendly and knowledgeable hotel staff. As soon as...

Los Tambos is the perfect small hotel. A short walk from Plaza de Armas, the hotel is clean and very comfortable. The colors and furnishings are eye pleasing and welcoming. What sets this hotel apart is the very friendly and helpful staff. They picked our group of 8 up at the bus station after a 10 hour bus ride from...

I haven't stayed anywhere else in Arequipa, but I can't imagine anything better for the price. First of all the staff is excellent. They are friendly, accommodating, helpful and welcoming. The great aspects of the hotel are: a great breakfast, a nice rooftop terrace with good views, super clean and quiet rooms, comfortable beds, and only 1/2 block from the...

This small boutique hotel is a great value with a great location. Less than a block off the Plaza de Armas. The hotel is comfortable, clean, and safe. What sets this property well above the rest is the service and staff. Anything you need, or any problems arise, they will take care of it. Most notable is the General Manager,...

We stayed at Los Tambos for two nights before and after our two-day trek at the Colca Canyon. The staff were extremely generous and prepared to be at our service. On the morning of the trek, a packed hot breakfast from their menu choices (everything from eggs, hot chicken sandwiches, oatmeal, tamales, etc.) was ready to go at 5AM. We...

A really great choice in Arequipa. For starters the rooms are clean, the breakfast is good, and the location is perfect. But the real story here is the service!

Hotels fill niches. Los Tambos is not trying to attract people who pay for places like the Monasterio in Cuzco. But, it fills its niche magnificently. We reserved a king bed. The room was plainly but comfortably furnished; everything worked. The bathroom is small but functional. The story of this hotel is its service. When the bus from our Colca...
