We stayed at Los Tambos at the end of our trip. We stayed in the matrimonial room and it was fantastic. We needed a little rest and relaxation and Los Tambos was able to provide it. It was close to everything and the staff were very helpful and courteous. We enjoyed our breakfast too!

Would highly recommend this hotel. It is clean, with modern facilities and the mist attentive, caring staff I've come across in a while.

Yes the rooms are on the small side and yes depending upon which room you may have to deal with some noise....BUT this property in my opinion is one of the best small hotels I have ever stayed and certainly the best in Peru.

Arequipa was my last stop in Peru. I originally had reservations in another hotel, Casa Andina, but was informed upon arrival that the next night was overbooked and I would have to find other accomodations.
