San Pedro de Atacama is a quite expensive place to stay, so when searching for a place to stay we came across Sonchek. E-mail correspondance upfront was quick and we booked a room for 5 nights. When you book you need to confirm the booking 48-hours before, so don´t forget...
When we arrived we were met by one of the owners, and she was kindly showing us around the whole area. Everything looked nice and in really nice state. They use solar-power to heat the water and it is sufficient - always hot showers, even though it is a big place.
The rooms are comfortable and there is what you need when you go to San Pedro - A bed....
Outside there is a nice area with chairs, tables, lovely cats, etc.... You can sit in the sun and read, surfe the net, read a book, while you take a break from your tours. Meeting other travelers is easy and the kitchen is great for preparing food.
There is no breakfast included, but you can buy what you need close by. We enjoyed our stay here a lot, and our nightly guest - one of the big cats which loved to sleep between us - enjoyed it too.
We can only recommend this place as there is nothing to worry about.....GO GO GO....
The location is perfect as it is only a few minutes of walk to the center, bus station, stores, restaurants, etc.
