My husband and I just spent 4 nights at Tambo Viejo, and had a very pleasant experience. Like many converted houses in South America it could use some work; however, it was spotlessly clean, from the public areas to the room to the bathroom. We stayed in room 205, at the back and overlooking the garden, with a view out of the bathroom to Misti Volcano. The bed was extremely comfortable, with new, colorful bed linens, we had cable tv in the room, and it was spacious, as was the bathroom. The water was hot and water pressure was just fine. Patricia, the owner, and her staff treated us with great courtesy and went out of their way to assure our comfort. They ordered carry-in food for us when we were too lazy to go out for dinner (!), brought it to our room when it was delivered, and provided us with plates, flatware, napkins and glasses. The continental breakfast, included with the rate, was yummy - really good bread, fresh juice and our choice of mate tea or coffee - and served in the sunny garden. Although the hostal is located on an extremely busy street our room was quiet with no traffic noise. It's about a 10-block walk to the Plaza, but not a problem. Tambo Viejo isn't a Sonesta, but it doesn't charge Sonesta rates, either. For the price, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place to stay in Arequipa. We booked a 2-day/1 night Colca Canyon tour with them, and it was way better than we expected.
