My best hotel experience during my trip to Peru! I can't stop raving about Los Tambos. I'm so glad I chose this place for my visit to Arequipa. The location is as perfect as you can get. Only one block away from the Plaza de Armas, where some of the tourist attractions (e.g., the cathedral and the Iglesia de la...

Perfect location, and the staff were so helpful! We had a few mis-haps that were our own fault with some of our travel arrangements and Los Tambos staff helped us out each time. Fantastic breakfast too!!

The hotel staff were super helpful. They provided advice on tour options and arranged a tour for me with efficiency. They also offered me late check out my departure day without my even asking which allowed me to refresh before my international journey home. The room was small but well organized and comfortable despite the size. The location was super...

First our flight got cancelled going to Arequipa and Los Tambos could not have been more accommodating. The staff and manager stopped at nothing to ensure we were pleased with our stay. Perfect location and the room was stunning. If you don't stay here when you visit Arequipa then you're missing out, we definitely will be visiting again

This was a great hotel with exceptional service! We arrived really early in the morning around 6:00 am and our room was already ready. The hotel was full but when i booked i had asked them to give us the room before 12:00 pm and they happily did. A free airport shuttle came to pick us up - although this...

Located half a block from the Central Plaza of Arequipa, this small and friendly hotel was a perfect place for a vacationer looking for privacy and quiet. A plus are the fantastic breakfasts served on the fourth floor (included in the room fee). Warmly recommended.

We stayed in rooms 501 and my kids stayed in room 202 on Dec 30 and Dec 31, 2016. Both my wife and I got bitten by bed bugs and took almost 2 weeks to recover. One of my sons in room 202 also got bitten by bed bugs. Other than that the hotel is nice, location is fantastic, and...

Dear Mr. Ranjiv: Thank you for taking the time to post your review. It is an opportunity to clarify that the described incident certainly did not occur during your stay at Los Tambos. We have a few reasons to strongly affirm that. Unlike most hotels, Los Tambos closes its doors twice a year to go under thorough pest control, which...

I was very pleased with my stay at Los Tambos. Not only is the location excellent (seconds away from Plaza de Armas), the staff are extremely kind! They allowed me to check in early and have late check out too. Thank you so much, I have no problem recommending this hotel. Breakfast is delicious too :-).
