I booked it through hotels.com and got the impression it is a 4 star hotel. It is not. The hut is just like the picture very cute with a porch. Nice place to have a drink after a day in the desert. The hut is surrounded by green plants and the whole property has a eucalyptus aroma as soon as... More

pobkim, Director Comercial at Hotel Poblado Kimal, responded to this review

Thanks so much for your comments. Just to add that the plastic on the roofs is not a permanent installation but an emergency measure on account of the the extremely intense weather conditions so usually the fully organic arquitecture is a huge plus for anyone with a taste for such an experience. Thanks again for taking the trouble to write. More

Me and a friend have stayed at the Poblado Kimal for 6 nights in March 2015. They are very strict with the check-in/out time but that's okay. Perfect location, only 5 minutes walking from every restaurants and tour agencies, which is a plus in San Pedro, as you have to walk everywhere. No TV or air conditioning, but believe me,... More

This is a little gem of a hotel, perfect location: half a block from Caracoles, but far enough from the noise. Rooms are quite big, with a fridge, a fan, a really comfortable bed and a small balcony with table and chairs. Bathroom was good too: big, lots of natural light and hot water all the time we were there.... More

Ver nice hotel. The rooms are little cabanas with small seating areas in front of it. The outdoor areas are nice. Out of 5 nights we only had breakfast once since our tours left early. But the hotel provided lunch bags and tea/coffee for those leaving early.

We stayed last year at the Poblado Kimal in San Pedro de Atacama, the hotel is very rustic, with small adobe villas. The main attraction is that it is a half a block away from the main street, which is very convenient. The restaurant was excellent and we ate at the restaurant all three days that we stayed there. The... More

Absolutely loved this hotel. The rooms are amazing little cabanas with all the comfort you would want after a day of adventuring around. The outdoor areas are nice and the restaurant is good, though I would highly recommend venturing out for meals. Breakfast is REALLY good, though we rarely were able to enjoy since tours left early. When that happened... More

I read many reviews about this hotel before booking. We stayed here for 5 nights in Dec 2014. One must realize that San Pedro de Atacama is a VERY expensive place. It doesn't really look it…it is a small oasis village with adobe houses and basically dirt streets but of course, everything must be flown in via Calama (closest airport),... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Kilman Poblado in December. We were quiet active during our stay, non stop tours which took it out of us, so it was nice to know that we would; 1, be coming home to a hotel only metres away from the main strip, and 2 had a great pool where we could cool off... More

If you have a liking for the rustic side of living for a change, this hotel with its cottages offer exactly that, but with running water, heating (if required) and nice clean beds to take away the pains and aches of hectic tours across the highest and driest Atacama deserts. The breakfast spread was nice and filling, available in the... More
