The hotel was located 5 minutes walk from the center of La Serena. The breakfast was good, and the rooms were okay standard with working wifi. A big plus was that the owner was scottish and therefore spoke english and since my spanish is very limited, it worked well. He recomended trips around the city and could organize guided tours....

The hotel is about 5 blocks walk from the centre of town, so it's quite well located. The outside of the hotel is fairly nondescript, but hides a much larger space inside with a large interior courtyard. Rooms were pretty spacious, though the water system for the showers is a bit loud and you might hear your neighbour's through the... More

Stayed in room 15 at the hotel. The rooms are situated around a delightful courtyard, with plenty of space to sit out and some pretty flowers. The hotel is in a great location to explore. Bars, restaurants and shops all close by. The small room had a comfortable bed, TV and desk. There was a heater in the room. The... More

it is very cosy ande well kept. The rooms are clean and everything was working. Plenty of hot water. The highlight is the extremely friendy owners that go out of their way to make your stay pleasant and to provide with all information necessary. The location is very good, everything in walking distance, shopping, the craft market, supermarket, busses, restaurants.... More

A bit overrated we felt. In a run down part of town though the interior was ok and the room though quote small was clean and adequate. If we were to return would stay closer to the beach.

Comfortable, clean rooms. Nice bed linen. Cable tv. Attractive terrace outside the rooms, with places to sit amongst flowers and listen to the birds. Easy walk to town, restaurants, shops. Quiet location. Breakfast was a disappointment considering the price of the accommodation. I really felt that this place was overpriced, however there seemed to be a lack of other places... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days in September and couldn't be happier. The owners are very friendly and helpful. For example, I wanted to do a Desierto Florido tour, but the only one I found around town was on a day that I would no longer be in La Serena. The owner (John?) made several calls and found... More

The Owners try to be helpful and are friendly but the Lady didn't know much about Tours and Costs of hiring Taxis etc. It was the most expensive Hotel and Cabana I stayed (AUS$80.00) Breakfast could add something else, such as warm fresh bread, very common to Chileans. It was off season, I just saw another passenger around, it was... More

I contacted the hotel only two days before I arrived but luckily it was quiet season for tourism so I was able to easily snag a room. The hotel was easy to find with secure parking available in the back. I was only one of two guests so it was pretty quiet and the bar was closed. The hotel is... More

This place is great if you want to stay in the center of town and not along the beach. It is located just minutes by foot to the market and center of town. We were just there during "off-season" and SERIOUSLY, the city dies out by 8-9pm - there is very little to do after that. However, the owner John... More
