We travel "budget" in general - we look for clean hotels with private baths and for the most part paid between $45 -60/night for 3 people. We'd had some great experiences and some bad experiences along the way, and when we got to Las Torres, we were in for a treat.
The room, a garden patio room, was spacious -especially for having 3 beds, had enough outlets for all 3 of us to charge our batteries at the same time, had bath towels and hand towels, soap for each of us, a TV with satellite channels, free internet in the lobby that went at a normal pace, and breakfast that included eggs, coffee, bread, ham, cheese and more (crepes with fruit one day, avocado and tomatoes another day). The water was hot- for all 3 showers and the water pressure was perfect. The staff were as friendly as friendly could be. The owner told us about places to eat, places to visit, where to get a cab, etc. When we left, she said she was going out and wouldn't be back when we took the cab to the airport and gave us hugs and kisses goodbye! There is a gorgeous rooftop patio that overlooks the city (just keep going up one more flight after the breakfast room). It's only a couple blocks from the Plaza de Armas (city center square). While we were there they were doing construction on a nearby road, so it was a little dusty outside.
We paid $45/night and stayed for 2 nights. It was the best decision we could have made. We spoke Spanish, but I did hear the woman speaking English to some other travelers, so I'm sure she's fluent in both.
It was at the end of our trip (we'd been to Lima, Cusco, Inka trail, Puno, Chivay then Arequipa) and a perfect end at that. We were able to print our boarding pass for 1 sol/page at the front desk and were about 20 min. from the airport.
