From the outside it looked very nice but in the end it was a little disappointing. Staff spoke barely English (except for one) so information was hard to get, still they helped us very good organizing a trip to Laguna Brava (a must see, perfect trip). In the - small - room: a good bed, a lousy pillow, no refrigerator,... More

We stayed two nights at the hotel in order to make day trips into the nation parks. The location is fine the hotel nice, service staff is friendly. Downsides: breakfast was ok, nothing special. The restaurant food is as expected - not great but eatable. The Miskitos are very irritating and aggressive. Here I would wish the hotel did something... More

Unique architecture and design, very well integrated into its surroundings. However, our overall experience has been rather disappointing: all day loud music from the neighbors next to the hotel, we had some doubts on the quality of the food, found a number of cockroaches in the room and swimming pool wasn't clean... A pity for such a beautiful place!

We stayed with friends for two nights while visiting Valle de la Luna and Talampaya. Quite a ride, but worth the while, and besides there is nothing closer. There are a couple of other nice hotels in this same town, Villa Union, but Canon seemed best. All the previous reviews are fine, and I agree 100% about the rooms, the... More

You feel (you are) in the middle of nowhere and suddenly, just a few km away from Villa Unión, and after several hours of car driving, you find this awesome and beautiful hotel. The sightseen is unbeliebable, personnel is kind, and breakfast superb (croissants, cereals, bread, milk, coffee, local delicatessen and juices). You cannot miss the chance to sleep here!!... More

Canon de Talampaya We checked for locations to stay in the area of the two national parks, Talampaya and Ischiagulasto and finally picked this little hotel in Villa Union. Their web site looked nice and some comments on Tripadvisor confirmed the impression. It is easy to find, located on the main road of V.U. The whole architecture reminds of pueblos... More

Small wonderful hotel on the south side of the rather uninteresting town Villa Union - and a good stepping-stone to the wonderful Talampaya National Park (did the bike tour there, faboluos value at 50 pesos with guide for three hours) hotel is traditionally built in adobe style. Rooms are rather simple and small but there are lots of common areas... More

This modern Hotel in an Pueblo style architecture is located in Villa Union, Rioja and probably the closed accomodation to the Tempalaya National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site). This park (very worthwhile visiting) is still 60 km away but roads are paved and easy to manage. Restaurant privides ok dinner but rather poor breakfast, in particular for a diabetic.
