I was pleasantly surprised to find a Sonesta hotel in Calama, one of Chile's mining hubs. The hotel's obvious clientele are the tourists visiting San Pedro de Atacama and the continuous flow of mining professionals cruising through town for visiting the various World class mines operating in the region. The hotel's lobby is ample, modern and welcoming. There is a... More

After spending 5 days in Atacama and 3 in Uyuni, this was our chosen spot for a relaxing day just before taking our plane back. We got a weekend rate which was great, and just relaxed at this nice hotel, enjoyed its pool, its breakfast, dinner and had a great massage. The room was modern and nicely decorated. All in... More

There really is not much to see in Calama. We stopped by for one night on our way to San Pedro in the Atacama desert. There are four restaurants in the same building but other than that not much to be found. The hotel is nice, the staff is friendly, breakfast good, but the hotel getting a little dated. I... More

The facility is probably the best in Calama, but that's a very low bar. The rooms are large and well appointed, and the place is pretty new. There is where the "good" ends. The staff is polite but broadly incompetent and the managers are no better. The hot water in the shower in the morning depends highly on when you... More

This hotel is set just a short walk from the main streets of the town. It is quite obviously a favourite accommodation for people working or visiting the huge copper mine nearby. It is efficient, clean, and the free cold drink, coffee and tea in the lobby were very welcome indeed. The room was spotless, everything worked, bathroom clean and... More

The Sonesta hotel is a decent place to stay in Calama. It is located close to the huge shopping mall of the city, which makes it rather easy to buy stuff for the rest of the travel or eat in another place than the hotel. The rooms are clean and well furnished, we had nothing to complain about. WE did... More

I stayed at the Sonesta for 4 nights on a business trip during the last week of September. I was pleased with the overall service, cleanliness, and location of the hotel. My room was very much up to standard and I enjoyed comfortable, relaxing nights. The restaurant was also very nice and we enjoyed the buffet each morning. It was... More

Located outside the center of Calama but next to the casino and malls. We arrived late and initially looked at the Park Hotel, but their prices were stupidly high and we'd just seen a train passing by tooting its horn and the thought of more of that through the night wasn't attractive. We looked at previous places we'd stayed but... More

They have a promotion during the weekends, that you pay for one night but can stay two. This makes this 'fancy' hotel accesible, even for backpackers like us. Although they did have some troubles at the reception with handling our booking. The hotel is really nice for the promotion-price we paid. The breakfast was fine, the rooms were good. The... More
