3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

location great as it is besides the main square. Breakfast very simple and was missing some basic items. But the main concern was with the bed, I was itching for a couple of days after i stayed there and had some rushes.

I stayed here for two nights on business. The location of the hotel is on the city's square, but it is old and in need of an update. The rooms were dingy, as were all of the seating areas in the hotel. I left my rental car in the hotel garage. Despite there being an attendant, someone scraped my car... More

The rooms were nice and the food was good. A/C did not work and asked and it was never fixed. Luckily it was cool out so I left the window opened and put up with the noise. If you wanted hot turn on the faucet and let it run for 5-7 minutes. The inter net was so bad that for... More

The location of the hotel next to Plaza Independencia is perfect. All downtown business is close by and the walk to the university at Plaza Perú is about 15 minutes. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful, but the property itself needs some upkeep. I had a room facing away from Caupolican and it seems the hotel... More

Comfortable and with all the things needed in a relaxed and clean hotel. Decoration could be updated (has a 80's and 90's flair) but knowing the past of the hotel gives certain dignity. With an outstanding big heated swimming pool in the basement it is a perfect place in town for bussines and touristic visit. It worth the price.

The hotel is just across the street from the Plaza de Armes and down the street a few blocks from the main pedestrian shopping area in Concepcion. Easy access to food and can be used as a base to walk the town. The facilities are generally in good condition but showing their age. Took staff several visits to repair a... More

The site is just perfect overlooking Plaza de Armas and you are really near everything you need. Shopping, food, 10 mins from the stadium. The breakfast is not perfect but in general the location is just fantastic and spares lots of time.

Really good hotel in the middle of concepcion. Not the moderns rooms, but very clean, beds very good. Breakfest ok, bar has a good climat, so, I will go here next time again. Also: not expansive at all.

I stayed here in March 2015, as a guest of the University. This hotel is well situated, across from the Plaza des Armes. Yes, the entrance is inside a shopping center and a bit odd.

It is an average hotel. Deskman and general services are average to good. Rooms are clean, not so small. We were on a high floor with a nice view to the park. The location is good and centered. They are able to handle foreign currency (meaning euros or usd) and they have electricity (power) plugg-in adaptors on request.
