This hotel is situated in the middle of a residential area with nothing around it so it's really only for a stopover. Bedrooms were beautifully decorated, the food served in the restaurant was excellent quality and the reception staff were just so lovely and friendly. We liked it here.

We had an unscheduled stop at Calama on our bus ride from San Pedro de Atacama to Arica. The roads closed due to mining protests and the bus just sort of dropped us off in Calama. It was midnight and we had two small children. Then the bathrooms at the bus stations closed. We were in a tight spot. My... More

Bathrooms have good size and shower works great, can have a good rest. Service wasn´t very friendly so don´t... More

Other reviewers correctly brand this hotel as somewhat tired or dated. While that is true, in itself that wouldn't normally bother me. I am however extremely annoyed with the manager and staff, who have been singularly uncommunicative and unhelpful during my business-oriented stay. They made errors on our booking, failed to confirm arrangements for conference lunches (and so charged us... More

This Diego de Almagro is far cleaner, nicer, friendlier, etc. than the other Diego de Almagros I was exposed to (for instance, DO NOT stay at the "airport" one in Santiago). Chile is not, in general terms, a very cutomer service-oriented country. In fact, most places, the service is downright rotten (as was the case at the restaurant of this... More

A reasonably modern but rather dated hotel. Adequate if you have to stay in Calama overnight enroute to another destination. Wi-fi/tv/minibar in room. Standard Chilean breakfast.

We felt that perhaps this hotel had seen better days and was a bit overpriced for what it was. Our room was large with very noisy, but effective air-conditioning. There were stains on the shower curtain, sheets and blankets and the bath mat was frayed with threads hanging off it. The breakfast was adequate but the orange juice was over-sweetened... More

I stayed one night in the off season and got a good rate by booking online. The hotel is very well appointed with a good restaurant as well as a snack menu during the day. The rooms were very clean and warm. Checkout is at noon but the hotel stored my luggage and I could use the dining room and... More

IF you find yourself in Calama for a night or two--and that's a big "if" for those high-tailing it to San Pedro--this place is a reliable bet. It's part of a respectable Chilean chain of hotels, and it offers good services in what is not a tourist destination. I had the sense that it was used mostly by miners and... More
