An amazing place to stay in San Pedro, this lodge is peaceful and relaxing! The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful, and made sure that everyone felt at home. One evening we were offered wine and snacks, another day they kept the fire going for the hot tub. There was soothing music playing throat the day, although a...

Rooms and bathrooms are a little smaller than advertised, but still in pretty good condition. And it is fairly far removed from the center of town. But that's about where the negative ends for Ruka Zen. I don't think I've spent the night (or four) in such a peaceful place. Has an AMAZING view of the stars since there are...

Excellent stay, Superb value for money! Lovely place, great hospitality. If you have a car, the short drive to the Lodge is not only not a problem, it's a pleasure to leave the dust and noise of San Pedro behind for a while.

Ruka Zen Lodge has nice, clean rooms with helpful staff and a relaxing ambience. The only disadvantage is the location. The Lodge is located approx. 3 km from the "town center". Since taxi drivers are scarce in town it's a little bit of an effort to coordinate the transports with the staff from RukaZen Lodge. Furthermore there wasn't enough time...

Due to difficulties to find accomodation in San Pedro de Atacama (it was full all over), we ended upp at Lodge Ruka Zen. It is a bit remote, but no problem if you have a rental car. They were working with some improvements outdoor when we stayed there, making a new fence around the little swimming pool. That will be...

Fantastic staff and owners, Our room was very cute and clean. The shower was hot (yay!). The breakfast was good. The grounds are pretty and there is a pool + firepit. They have adorable dogs (one very pudgy pug and two german shepherds). We spent our mornings chilling out and relaxing at the quiet hotel. Wifi works in common areas...

I had a great stay at Ruka Zen, the manager and owner of the hotel were both very nice and hospitable. They have a lot of knowledge of the area and are eager to provide information. It felt like being at home.

I happened to decide on Ruka-Zen merely because the whole town was full and I booked at the last minute. I was a bit hesitant about staying a bit out of the center of town before I arrived, but it could not have been a more perfect experience!! The owner of the lodge, Maria-Loreto, is one of the friendliest people...

B&B RukaZen is an ok place, and the managers were kind to us at first. Well, you gotta remember you are in Chile: services are quite expensive overall and people are kind and gentle. As others guests have pointed out beforethrough Booking.com, the price is not guaranteed. María Paz Loreto, the owner, charged us a rate that was not on...

I do not remember how I came across this hotel while looking for a reasonable place to stay for two couples. We got a two bedrooms cabana with kitchen, dining area, and living area. When we got there at night, it was difficult to see because the area was pitch dark. We called the hotel and Anita came to lead...
