“Great find in the heart of Arequipa.”
Reviewed 30 March 2012 via mobile

We recently visited on our honeymoon and can definitely vouch for this hotel just off the Plaza de Armas. We were warmly welcomed by the hotel Manager Thomas and found all the staff to be excellent and very helpful. Breakfast is a special treat. For a very reasonable price we took advantage of the matrimonial suite, which is the only suited on the 5th and top floor of the hotel.

Others have noted some of the rooms can be noisy but we can certainly reccomend this particular room.

The hotel also offers a free airport pick up and transfer if you stay for greater than 2 days.

Stayed March 2012

I can strongly recommend this very nice hotel - the service is outstanding, all staff is extremely friendly, helpful and very kind. There was not a single thing we could complain about: the location is just perfect (two minutes walk from main plaza), rooms are clean, quite and very nice (with free WiFi), breakfast is delicious.
However, what makes this place one of the nicest hotels I have ever been to is the staff: They really care about you and do everything to make you comfortable and at home. Every recommendation we have received was well-worth following. And even if my friend got really sick and had to go to the hospital - they tried to do everything they could to help us in this situation...
Visit Los Tambos - you won't be disappointed!!!

Long overdue review (we were there in September). The outstanding service and hospitality offered at Los Tambos is second to none - all staff is friendly, helpful and competent. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The location of the hotel is also excellent, just a couple of minutes away from the Plaza de Armas. Rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and quiet.

Our group of 6 (3 couples) stayed at Los Tambos for only one night in Arequipa. I cant say enough about how accomadating and helpful the staff was. We arrived before check in and they prepared our rooms early and on our departure date they let us stay in the rooms way after check out with no hassle. They provided a complimentary airport shuttle which was awesome!

My favortie part about Los Tambos was the breakfast. I love breakfast and if you do too, you wont be dissapointed by Los Tambos. Dont get me wrong it is not all that fancy but being able to sit on their rooftop patio and overlook the bustling city while having some coffee and eating b-fast was really neat.

Rooms are a tad small and nothing fancy but the staffs attitudes made the place awesome.

Way to go Los Tambos!!!

After staying in Lima for a few days, I travelled down through Pisco, Paracas, Ica, Nazca and then to Arequipa. Los Tambos was a welcome surprise, being very comfortable and peaceful after all the travelling. I stayed in the room on the top floor which was very clean, spacious and quiet. From the room I had easy access to the terrace and the observation deck on the roof, which had great views over the city and the three surrounding volcanoes. Breakfasts were very good, with a small yet tasty selection. I would definitely recommend this hotel for all of the above as well as its great location, just off the central square. You can walk off the street with all its hustle and bustle straight into the quiet of the lobby. The hotel also arranged a 2 day trip up to the Colca Canyon which was also very good.
If you are in Arequipa and are looking for a quality place to stay in a central location, Los Tambos is definitely the right choice.

Room Tip: Room 501 on the top floor is great.
