We arrived late in the afternoon and scouted around for a place to stay. I went in to see the rooms in the back garden. One smelled of floor polish, but another double room with two beds was available. The lady and I agreed on a price of 35,000 Chilean pesos. She showed me the large secure parking lot. I... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and the staff were extremely helpful and informative. The Scottish owner and his wife were full of information about the city and elqui valley. They arranged a tour of the elqui valley for us and it was really good. The hotel itself has beautiful courtyards and gardens where we spent most of our evenings.... More

We stayed here on Chriistmas Eve and 1st January. This has a lovely courtyard and secure parking and the rooms are clean and comfortable and situated in the centre of town. We thought that a large resort like this would have lots going on over the festive season but we were wrong, it was dead on both occasions, but John... More

This hotel was a really nice contrast to the ugly resorts by the beach. It is near the square, has great parking, and john was really helpful. It isn't glamorous, but it is clean, quiet, and pretty. We would definitely come back if we pass thru la Serena again.

My wife, son, and I just completed a 6 day stay at Hotel del Cid in La Serena, Chile. We really enjoyed our stay. The highlight for me was the pleasant host couple who own the property. John and his wife make you feel like you've come to visit family (but family that has a staff that cleans your room... More

Our apartment reservation fell through upon arrival to the La Serena airport, so we looked this place up in Lonely Planet and the seven of us showed up without a reservation. The owner luckily had three rooms available for us and very nicely showed us around. The courtyard is beautiful, spacious and great for hanging out. The owner was very... More

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
