We are Canadians who are also Australian citizens who travelled to Chile for the Mining Expo in April 2010 and decided that we would add another week heading north then east in the wake of the terremotto. I (the wife!) had booked accommodation at another spot (not El Galpon) into the Elqui Valley...we headed out by car from Santiago to...

We stayed with our two children (3 and 16 months) at El Galpon for 5 nights in early May and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend this hotel. The location is about a mile to central plaza in Pisco Elqui and an easy drive (I imagine a quick walk as well). The property has very nice gardens with...

We stayed at El Galpon for 3 nights in January. We arrived a day after our purse was stolen in Calama. Before arriving in Pisco Elqui, we had tried to file a report with the police but were unsuccessful. It was our good fortune that Anthony was around to help us get it done. He speaks fluent English and he...

Travelling up the stunning Elqui valley for the first time, we came across El Galpón and were so pleased that we did. Anthony and Michael welcomed us warmly and we booked into one of the rooms for 2 nights. The cost was very reasonable and the room extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. Relaxing beside the pool with the aroma of...

It takes some doing to get to El Galpon in the further reaches of Chile's spectacular Elqui Valley but the location and the venue are worth even much more effort. The Hanna family has taken an old barn (Galpon), added on and around, and now can boast of a tastefully appointed, world class almost destination resort in this proverbial yet...

I live in Santiago and have stayed at El Galpn about 4 times now. I enjoy the simplicity and tranquility of the hotel and its location. The cabañas are basically but comfortably furnished and all have private terraces with BBQ area, which is great. There is ample space between the cabañas all hidden in the charming gardens. Breakfast is delivered...

We visited the Hotel El Galpon at the end of our trip to Argentina and Chile, and found it to be a very pleasant surprise where all of our expectations were well met or surpassed. The grounds are beautiful, as the hotel is located in a spectacularly mountainous rural region with beautiful vistas in every direction. Our cabin was clean,...

From the moment we drove up the driveway, we knew we had found someplace special. The colorful gardens, flowers, and trees throughout the property are lovely. The birds kept us company as the owner's dogs roamed the property which gave it that relaxed feel. The love the owner has for nature and the history of the Elqui Valley was evident...

I spent 1 night last January at Hotel El Galpon. I was expecting something high quality, because they make such publicity for this place.
