Very friendly and helpful owners; spacious, quiet, clean room (in the new wing, at the back) and good location in the old town. The street at the back was being dug up so we could not access their carpark - but they sorted alternative secure parking for us and gave us a better price for the room to compensate. The... More

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel. It is clean, the rooms are located in the internal part of the building and are opened to a courtyard full of trees and plants including a very high palm. The staff was always gentle and helpful (they called the airport to ask for my luggage that had been lost). The breakfast is... More

The place is big and quiet, downtown but it seems like you're out of the city. The patio smells good and is so nice. The rooms are clean and confortable, the owner is very helpful. Breakfast included, not amazing.

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....
