The hotel is split on two sides of the road. We were in the part know as Poblado where the rooms are in circular huts. Our room was a good size and bed was comfortable. En-suite shower, toilet and basin. The en-suite was in need of a bit of a refurb as the grouting was gone in places but I...

And the staff even didn't allow us to take a shower. Even more they want 57$ for late check out( 15 min late)!!!!! It was the worst hotel I ever used....

The rooms are fairly basic but ooze charm and character with a rustic adobe style. There is no air conditioning and the room can get rather stuffy. A fan is provided to take...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days during our Chile trip in Feb 2017. The #1 thing is the location i.e. proximity to mini markets, restaurants and shops. This turned out to super useful since the roads got too mucky to walk comfortably when it rained during our stay. The room itself was small but cute with all...

Congratulations to the staff, always very helpful, polite and friendly. Especially those at the restaurant: they have been very careful with the food for my wife, who has severe allergies. Highly recommended. Note: no safe in the room and no air conditioning (for those who can't live without it... we did not care)

We had 3 nights here, the room was clean, comfortable & though basic, provided all we needed. There was a fan ( no a/c ) which we didn't need. Hotel info states " all rooms have a veranda" They don't. Ours didn't. Though we were out much of the time it would have been nice to sit out in shade....

We stayed for a week over New Years and really enjoyed this hotel. Right off the Main Street, so close to lots of dining and shopping options. The rooms are rustic but very comfortable. Hotel is quiet at night. The staff are great and will go out of their way to help improve your stay. An added benefit is that...

A beautiful little hotel situated just a few steps from San Pedro's main road. Rooms at the Hotel Kimal are well appointed and afforded a good night's sleep. The bathroom worked fine. No-one speaks any English (and why should they?) which makes communication difficult. But we are in the middle of the Atacama Desert.
