“fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2010

We stayed at these apartments with our (nearly) two year old. The apartments were very nice and clean. The staff/owners were very accommodating and helpful - they even custom built a child gate for the stairs to help our toddler stay safe. We speak very little spanish but were able to communicate effectively enough. The apartments are around 10 minutes walk from downtown, but in a nice area of town with some local food shops and playgrounds. We did not mind the walk. The breakfasts were very good, and over the 5 nights we stayed we always had a slightly different variety of choices each day. The kitchen is well equipped for any meals you may wish to make.

When we had some laundry to do they arranged a local lady to come and collect the laundry and return it later that day (nicely pressed). They also gave us a lift to the bus station when we were leaving.

I would highly recommend this place if you are coming to San Pedro to visit.

I selected this hotel on the basis of previous recommentations on Tripadvisor, and I was not disappointed. The one-bed apartment was spotless - a good size, and had all the facilities I could have wanted, including wifi. Rosana and Paulo were extremely helpful - despite my lack of Spanish - breakfast was the best I had in Chile, and overall the hotel proved an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. The only slight drawback was the distance to the town centre - but the flip-side is that it was well away from all the hustle and bustle of San Pedro.

Nice laidback setup for yourself. Very friendly and welcoming service.
Really enjoyed our stay in San Pedro and La Parina. Even got a lift to the busstation on the day we left. Thanks a mill again.

My husband and I selected this hotel based on reviews we read on Trip Advisor. It was as nice as people described it in their reviews. Nice architecture, fairly private and it was nice to have our own kitchen which we used. The only negative maybe that it is not that close to any restaurants although 10-15 minute walk will get you to the main strip. Unfortunately San Pedro de Atacama has a very large amount of loose dogs which makes it rather unnerving to be wondering around much, although lots of tourists do.
We purchased some food from nearby stores and from the wonderful Pasteleria Suiza which is just around the corner from the hotel. This bakery is a true gem, they have great desserts and they also sell turn overs and drinks.
The owner brought us a nice breakfast to our room every morning.
All in all a nice and quite place where you can escape the tourist crowds.

Even though the hotel takes credit cards, the card machine works intermittently and we were asked to pay cash for our second stay. The ATM machine we tried (there are 2 in town) did not take any of our cards. Our advise bring dollars to San Pedro de Atacama since it is easy to change dollars. The only gas station took credit cards but the machine was not working either.

Parina Atacama offers great value for your money compared to other alternatives in this town. Good location on a quiet street ten minutes walk from the main street. Very clean and comfortable. Decent breakfast. The staff is very friendly and tries to help out in every way, despite the obvious language barriers (Spanish is necessity)

Fantastic family-run just 10 minutes (on foot) from San Pedro's main street. Perfect for families looking for a clean, non-expensive place to stay. The rooms have a fully equipped kitchen and a private, spacious bathroom. Similar hotels in the area are twice as expensive (at least), this truly is a great value for money option. Additionally, the place is fun by its owner, ad-hoc utilities are not a problem.

The Parina Atacama Hotel is very beautiful, just a 5-10 minutes walk from the main street. Therefore it is perfectly quiet and great to relax after having performed some tours around San Pedro. Breakfast is great and the service excellent. The owners are very helpful and friendly .The appartments are new (opened just some months ago), fully equipped, clean and quite big. If I would go for another stay in San Pedro I would for sure book this hotel again.
