I agree with most reviews for the most part. The hotel is modern, and up to modern day standards but service is dicey, as is always the risk in Chile. We returned to our room last night and found our room door ajar (open). Luckily our possessions appeared to all be where we left them. I immediately called the front... More

Well, we loved iquique and the Holiday Inn. Unfortunately, we were there during the earthquake on April 1. The rooms are great, hot showers, pool, gym, and strong wifi. What stands out for us though is the calm and helpful staff during and after the earthquake. They were helpful in extending our stay. Making sure we had enough to eat... More

The room was great, with a very nice ocean view. Kind sized bed was in mint condition. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was awesome with plenty different stuff to choose from.

Good hotel, no surprises, excellent breakfast. Across the street from a very nice beach. The only slight disappointment is that water at Brava beach is too cold and too wild for swimming. Pay extra for the beach view! Vendors along the beach in the evening… mostly junk. Definitely go to the Zufry Duty Free Mall when you're in town!

The Holiday Inn Express is a very new hotel and is what you would expect of a Holiday Inn. The rooms were well equipped and comfortable. We had a lovely view out over the sea. The only problem we had was that the safe didn't work and the promised replacement didn't materialise.
