Free pick-up service offered by Hostal Solar is not reliable: no one was waiting for me at the bus terminal when I arrived very early in the morning; when I called them, they asked me to take a taxi; happily, the paid me back the 7 soles of the taxi ride, which is fair.
Also, they were very kind to give me my room, although it was only 6:30am. The room furniture is basic, but it is still confortable and very quiet. Shower works great, there is even hot water in the sink which is not common in Peru.
Wifi works very well. I had a couple of documents to print and they very kindly did that for me for free.
They have a lovely terrace where you can enjoy a basic, but still good breakfast.
Last note: some people only go to Lima, Cusco and Puno when visiting Peru, I would definitely recommend to go to Arequipa as well, which is a beautiful city.
