“Great Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The hotel is located 2 blocks away of the central square of Coyhaique. From the moment that we drove in to the drive way, we felt at home. El reloj is a small hotel, the staff is very accommodating and they spoke good English. The room was nice, clean with beatifull views to the Valley (room 21). We stayed there one night.
There is a restaurant in the hotel (El Ovejero) which serves excellent dinner. One of the best meals that we had in our 4 weeks trip.
Highly recommended option if you spend some time in Coyhaique

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the valley

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights as a base to explore the area. Our room was quite cramped with a largish dining table taking up space unnecessarily. The bathroom was also cramped and there was nowhere to hang towels or clothing; no rail, hook or peg. The furnishings and carpet were rather worn and dated and the carpet could have done with a clean. We had a partial view of roof and lovely hillside.
Downstairs was much better! The lounge and dining areas were comfortable and well furnished and the food was very good. Fish and sea food is a speciality and we were introduced to some local dishes. On our first night there was no reasonable priced red wine available and that needs to be sorted.

Room Tip: I think some rooms must be bteter than the one we had!

My wife and I stayed four days at El Reloj Hotel, and found it to be an excellent choice. The room was fine, with a beautiful view of the valley. The small dining room served very good food with good service. The included breakfast was high quality and ample. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We used the hotel as a base for exploring the area, and had a wonderful day of fly fishing on a high Andean stream with a guide. The town is charming and offers good choices of restaurants. We recommend this hotel highly and would be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: A back room with a view of the valley is recommended.

I spent a total of four nights at the El Reloj and was surprised at the quality and cleanliness of the rooms, the helpful and friendly staff and the excellent meals. The owner, Don Angel, went out of his way to help me find lodging in other towns along the Carretera Austral. With the decline of the dollar against almost all world currencies, hotels in Coyhaique and in fact in all of Chile are getting more expensive than they used to be. What I paid was well worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for room #21. It is the latest addition, modern, large, quiet, private, with large windows

I made a reservation by email, I received an email back from El Reloj saying that I had to confirm my reservation sending a credit card. I did it. When I called them the day before traveling to make sure everything was fine, they were unable to tell me the status of my reservation because the "system was down". They also said I should have gotten a reconfirmation which I never got. I was lucky to get another Hotel. I am a Chilean so language was not the problem.

We were returning to civilization from hiking in Quelat, and appreciated clean, comfortable room. The staff was helpful, and breakfast was good. Good location, on main street at edge of town. Price seemed a little high, but Coyaique is not a cheap town, so reasonable for area and what you get.

We came after a long flight from Israel and realy enjoyed our stay in 2 rooms with a great dinner. Calm atmosphere and pleasant and tasty breakfast. Great view of the Reserva from the windows of the room and breakfast hall.
We came again on our last night after a week in Patagonia and loved it once again.
