Hotel Kimal is a nice place to stay in San Pedro de Atacama. It is centrally located - virtually on the corner of the main street Caracoles. It is composed of several houses made of adobe as well as reception, restaurant Pacha and outdoor pool with jacuzzi and terrace. Rooms are tiny and rather dark, which is annoying after a... More

I was very pleased with my stay here. The staff was friendly, the accommodations were nice and it was an easy walk to the main drag. There is certainly nothing spectacular about this hotel, and the food wasn't anything special either. I'm sure there are other great places to stay in Atacama, but I would be happy to stay here...

We didn't stay long enough to fully appreciate this pleasant accommodation in the oasis village of San Pedro de Atacama. What we did like especially however, were the comfortable beds and the peacefulness of the evening for sleeping. We also thought that the adjacent restaurant was excellent and that it served a diverse menu and good wine and beer. The... More

We chose to be near downtown..so this is not a luxury hotel but certainly all you need. But it is well appointed and pleasant rooms are clean and grounds are well maintained Staff friendly and helpful, breakfast good , we did not have dinner but menu looked very good. We toured during the day and walked around the town at... More

Hotel Poblado Kimal is in a great location. So near the central square, but on the outside edge of the main hub of activity. When you step out, you are only a few steps from restaurants, bars, tour centers, shops, etc... yet when you step back in all the activity and bustle of the streets disappear and it is pure... More

Pros: - Great location - on the corner of the main street of town. A lot of the nicer hotels seem to be out of town a bit and I'm not sure how people get around given I didn't see any taxis during my stay so I think you would be stuck eating at the hotel a lot or riding... More

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.
