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.

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

This hotel has (or had) potential. The cottage type units are rustic and modestly furnished. Unfortunately the landscaping needs serious attention. Also, the furnishings themselves were worn and dated. Given some upgrades and maintenance, this hotel could rate better. We only ate at the restaurant for the breakfast that was included. We requested fired eggs and got scrambled. Ordered boiled... More

We recently spent 4 days in this very nice hotel in the old historical part of San Pedro and liked it very much. Our package included half pension and excursions, which turned out to be a very good choice that we would absolutely recommend. The staff is great, the rooms/bungalows are spacious and comfortable. The hotel's new wellness project looks... More

we liked the cottages. they are not nice, especially the outside patio we liked for reading and hanging out. the location is perfectly situated. the 2 pools are too cold to use, but the jacuzee which is heated is great. after arrival, we asked whether we could change the cottage and were allowed to, which was very nice. in general,...
