We stayed for four nights in a king room on the 5th floor. It was incredible and cozy and had a view of the city. The bed was huge and comfy. I left the window open at night and slept like a baby. The breakfasts were all delicious, and the girl who served us each morning was pleasant and friendly....

Cannot recommend Los Tambos enough! Their service is unmatched and the location is great. Upon arriving to the hotel they allowed us to select our room of two available. The manager is the sweetest and will make sure your stay is a great experience. The front desk set us up with reservations for dinner each evening and suggested some of...

We spent our first few days in Peru at Los Tambos. The location could not be any better. The staff were very helpful and set up a bike excursion for us as well as a two day trip to the Colca Canyon. Breakfast was excellent as well.

This hotel is a gem. Great location and they offer airport transfer from the airport included in the hotel rate. The breakfast is wonderful with a great menu to choose from. The staff is very helpful and will arrange a taxi for you when needed.

Los Tambos is perfectly located - It's right by the main square and Cathedral and a central location to walk around and explore. The service was excellent - everyone went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful stay. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend!

We arrived in Arequipa at 9AM and the staff already had our room ready and were expecting us from the complimentary taxi they sent to the airport. That level of attention continued throughout our entire trip. We need laundry done after a long hike to Machu Picchu and they arranged it even though it was a national holiday and the...

The installations are not very modern, but the hotel is in a great location (only a few steps away from the Plaza de Armas) and the breakfast was excellent. I was even given one complimentary breakfast and one complimentary airport transfer. The room had a heater, and there was sufficient hot water, but the showerhead could have been bigger. I...

This hotel has ridiculous customer service. Whether it is Angela and Linda at the front desk or Manuel the driver or Magali at breakfast they are all just phenomenal. They know your name, they know what you like, they make good suggestions. They are attentive and sweet and genuinely care that you enjoy Arequipa and the hotel. I can't recommend...
