The hotel is a dusty couple of kilometres from San Pedro de Atacama. We saw people walk it, but I wouldn't want to. The neighbourhood is seedy, and there is a small bridge to get to the hotel. The bridge is narrow and diagonal to a small canal and has no side protection. Be careful especially at night. The parking area is small and hard to park in. Our room was partly flimsy plywood with apparent screws. There is a certain charm to the place, considering the unwelcoming desert it is set in. The jacuzzi and pool are nice. It is overall quite peaceful. The bathrooms are clean and modern. The lighting is 12 volts LED (there is an effort to be solar powered) and insufficient. The internet is terrible (but this is not specific to the hotel, I think). The staff were kind and breakfast was excellent, outstanding even.
What really got me was the price, USD 300 per night for the room for 4 people (writing this in a luxury room overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Antofagasta: USD 120/night for 4). And they briefly attempted to charge for a little map they had given me! It was about USD 180 per night for a double room.
Overpriced, but then again all of San Pedro is.
Overall decent, but not impressive.
