I was in Arequipa for a few days and had been staying in an otherwise perfectly fine place recommended on Trip Advisor, except that it was too far from the city center. So I turned again to Trip Advisor to read reviews on some closer options. I settled on Las Torres de Ugarte and am so glad I did. For one thing, it's just a few blocks from the Plaza de Armas, yet situated in an area with restricted motorized access. It was so quiet and peaceful there, in stark contrast to the traffic gridlock found most everywhere else in the heart of Peru's second largest city. The hotel itself is very clean and comfortable. Rooms are tastefully appointed, and there's a relaxing courtyard as well as a rooftop deck with a view of Misti Volcano. A fantastic breakfast is served in a sunny upstairs dining room, presided over by the ever ebullient cocinero Vicente. The rest of the staff, from the manager to the desk clerks to the maids are just as professional and nice, all doing their part to make one's stay truly memorable. Excellent in-house laundry service. Complimentary luggage storage. All this and at a reasonable price. Two thumbs up!
