“Good place to stop over in Talca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Needed a place to stay overnight en route from Valdivia in the south to Santiago; Talca seemed about right and, thanks to T.E., we opted for the D de A - a pretty reliable, US-style chain. Did not disappoint: not cheap (US prices) but clean, comfortable, and efficient; TV, wi-fi, modest exercise room. (Free) underground parking a plus. In the middle of Talca, but easy to find (with a map), Talca not being that big. Indoor pool isn't that great (T.E. photo seems to overestimate it - it's about 30 feet long). Adequate bar and restaurant, service better than average.

Room Tip: probably best to avoid rooms in front, overlooking the entrance and the main road (we had one: traff...

Well equiped hotel for the price. The rooms are very spacious, quiet and the beds are large and comfortable. Our room was a little cold as it had lots of windows and one didn't fully shut.

The food at the restaraunt was good quality and value. The breakfast which was included in the price was generous.

The hotel staff were probably the best aspect. All very friendly and they actually took our bags up to our room. Of course you have to tip but the service was much appreciated as we arrived exhausted.

Would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Talca.

Nice hotel, clean, with good service, well located, but not a 4-star hotel -- don't know how stars are assigned in Chile. The hotel is modern, the rooms are large and comfortable. The Wi-Fi doesn't work very well but the Internet connection is good, so get an ethernet cable from the front desk and, still better, set up your own Wireless for a good connection. The restaurant is definitely not up to par with the rest of the hotel. The breakfast is not very good, and the the menu entries I tried (pasta, meat) were definitely not good. Higher quality at the restaurant would have made for a more pleasant stay. Otherwise, a good option in Talca.

The good: Modern; nice location; spacious, clean, comfortable rooms; WIFI works as expected. Both the reception and restaurant staff were very helpful and accommodating.

The meh: The breakfast could be jazzed-up a bit, but is otherwise "okay." The decor is nothing to cheer about, but it's also not an eyesore.

The bad: nada

Very clean and quiet hotel. Across the street is a long park that is great to walk in. I had a room on a high floor and got a great view of the city and surrounding area.

A modern, shiny, comfortable, conveniently located, albeit characterless hotel in Talca. The rooms are spacious, bright and comfortable. The bathroom has excellent standards, too. Breakfast is appropriate, although nothing special. Dinner was very good.

Although the hotel claims to offer free WiFi to their guests, this service doggedly refused to function in my room during my stay, despite the instructions the staff kindly gave me.

The personnel was kind, helpful and professional but I had the impression that the place was understaffed.

I was a bit disappointed in this hotel since I was comparing it to Canadian standards and this was not a 4 star hotel as per their description.

I would say that the room was clean and the hotel was comfortable enough. They did have a pool and dining on site which was nice. It is the best of the options that you have available.
