“Super Speedy Staff - Great View from Huge Room - and they have smoking rooms!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

We loved this Holiday Inn Express - probably the best in Chile (I have stayed already in 5 Holiday Inns in Chile). The recpetion and check-in was superfast - even on a crowdy Eastern weekend, parking was free, but the best was the huge smooking!! room with a fantastic view over the beach towards the Pacific ocean. Also the location of the hotel is very good for having a walk along the beach without safety issues. Really this a very good hotel with friendly staff and definetely a place to come back.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in a sea view room. It was an excellent choice for its position almost on the beach (not Cavancha) with great views of the sunset, escarpment leading up to the Atacama Pampa and partial views of the city. Excellent beds, large, clean and very comfortable rooms. Staff were very helpful and excellent wifi connection in the room. It has a pool in a shaded courtyard and great breakfast included and free protected parking. The only downside is that is too far to walk easily to the historic part of downtown. Travellers should be aware that the airport is much further away from the city than expected from the city. Taxi transfer cost about sterling £25 for a couple, each way.

Room Tip: A seaview room is definitely worth it.

Great large room with awesome bed, flat screen tv and good bathroom. Everything is nice and clean, the breakfast is what you would expect for the price. Seaview is cool (sunset).

Location is ok, about 10 minutes walk to main beach...and across the street the 'second' beach (no swimming). The city center is 30 minutes walk, but taking a cab is really easy.

Staff was very nice and helpfull, probably also because it is a business hotel. The gym...thats actually no gym...just 3 machines and a large mirror ;). Swimmingpool is ok, but small and the sun is gone at about 4 o'clock because of the high buildings.

Overall, nice place to stay..

The room was clean and had sufficient space. The breakfast buffet was good and the location is well situated. I have stayed at numerous hotels on Iquique, this is your best option.

Stayed there on a private trip - the hotel provides the adequate service you expect. No surprises (you cannot expect a specific character from this hotel chain). Rooms with ocean view are the better ones, you can hear the waves.

It is about 10min drive to the city center - Plaza Arturo Prat, and 5min walk to the next restaurant area (pleasant walk along the coast line). The breakfast again had been basic - hotel chain like.
