The place is bright and airy. Rooms are spacious with big windows and heaps of blankets with heating. Location is perfect literally a few blocks away from the main square, where there are supermarkets, banks, restaurants, tour operators etc. Cleaners clean the room every day so it is super tidy and the bathroom is spacious and great. Breakfast isn't too...

Pros: - Rooms are nicely painted - I had WiFi in my room, but only because it was located near the reception - Clean Cons: - Very basic rooms - Very low and small shower - No safe in the room - The reception was not manned most of the time. The staff simply left the available keys lying on...

While this place was a little cheaper than others in this block, it offered very basic rooms with heater that cannot be turned on unless the weather is very cold. It was 16 degrees when we were there so it wasnt cold enough. Bathroom very basic but hot water was good. Breakfast: very inconsistent breakfast (1 day with cereal and...

Good location - not too close to all the noisy bars. Friendly and helpful staff - even with limited english, they were very accomodating. Looked around at other places, and this one is good value for the money. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. A good choice.

Very handy to the centre. It's a small town, but this is a few blocks from the action. Little English spoken but friendly staff. Ok rooms. San Pedro prices so more expensive than elsewhere in Chile

We arrived here and spent three nights. The room was clean and the location is one street over from the main streets with restaurants and tour companies. The hot water needed to be turned on the first day but we had no other real issues after that. It was about $70 US a night for a double (two twin beds)...

We stayed in a double room for 3 nights, the hotel staff was quite friendly (although they didn't speak English) and the hotel transpired an authentic feeling. The room was clean and simple with a cottage-like cozy feeling (no tasteless decor, just the basics). We had a shower at different times of the day and we always had hot water....

Lage, shady courtyard, large enough for a few cars, with high walls and a gate that is locked at night, with tables and chairs under the trees that made a pleasant place to debrief after a day of birding. Cafeteria-style restaurant was large and clean and the staff were nice and efficiently served good, if not elaborate, breakfasts. Veronica, the...

Hotels in San Pedro de Atacama are overpriced compared to other locations in Chile. We stayed three nights at the Hotel Tambillo. Whilst just sufficient, you can find better places to stay in SPA for this price. The hot water is unpredictable and rooms are plain and small with no frills to brighten it up. The staff do not speak...

we were moved here after a disastrous night in hostal don sebastian where we had to change room hoping to have hot water and be able to take a hot shower (not possible in don sebastian, 100 dollars a night for two) we were promised hot water and heating in the room at least between 9 pm and 1 am...

“Room 15 opened up directly into the courtyard, and was adjacent to the dorm room, which might be a noise issue if full.”
