After encountering a continuous barrage of high-pitched announcements to the same destination and a long overnight bus ride from Cusco to Arequipa, it’s nice to step into a welcoming environment that immediately evokes clean comfort, and complemented by the welcoming staff of Hostal Solar. Stepping through the foyer into the courtyard, you immediately get the feeling that you have booked...

This is a nice budget accommodation in the heart of Arequipa, conveniently located at a walking distance from all its main attractions, such as the beautiful Santa Catalina monastery. The staff apparently did not speak English, but communicated only in Spanish. However, they were nice and helpful: they kept our luggage for half a day free of charge and helped...

We stayed here for one night. They let us check in at 6am!!! We arrived that early on an overnight bus so they changed our room to give us one that was ready so we could shower and sleep. So flexible and helpful! About 15-20 minute walk to the plaza, with shops and restaurants on the way and close-by. Breakfast...

Great place with an amazing view on the city. My room was on the 4th (last) floor and I could enjoy the terrace just for myself. The view to the volcano right from my room window is just fantastic! The rooms are nice and have everything necessary (including a heater). I also liked the common area on the 1st floor,...

The recepcionists were very friendly, they book a Colca Canyon one day tour 10 soles more expensive than I found in others agencies. Clean, few minutes walk from what...

This hostal is approx 8 minutes walk to the Centro Historico (Cathedral) and 5 minutes to the Monastery. The hostal lobby is beautiful and the top terasse too. Our bedroom was OK, not wow, but nothing really to complain. We arrived around 7am in the morning and they gave us the room around noon, even if the check-in was later...

I really enjoyed my stay at Hostal Solar. The location is better than Plaza de Armas as this is where all the attractions and great restaurants are located, Plus it's right on the main bus line. My room was the 2 twin beds on the second floor on the patio where breakfast is served. The room was very clean, bed...
