6/10 Good

Nice hotel close to city center and the downtown
This hotel was in a way to center of downtown La Serena from the bus terminal. Hotel staff was nice, and the building was cool with a resemblance to colonial days. However, our bathroom smelled bad and there was no garbage can, towels, nor good wifi.

2/10 Poor

avoid unless no option
tiny, dirty room, lots of half fixed, shoddily maintained things. if that's breakfast, don't bother. Okay location just off center square, but very busy street. Very noisy hotel corridor, with noise spilling into the room, at all hours. Room smelled, shower holder broken, 5 flushes of toilet to get things gone.

8/10 Very good

Nice hotel close to the centre of town
Place was nice. The room we stayed in was a bit weird, light shining through the opaque windows above the doors at night but dark in the morning.... Breakfast was smaller than minimal. If you can get the room cheaper without breakfast take up the option as it's not worth paying any extra at all for what you get. Would have received a better score if the room rate did not have breakfast 'included'.

Solo en caso de emergencias
En realidad nos quedamos solo porque no habia alojamiento en otro sitio, su relación precio calidad es malo. Las piezas no tienen acustica, son chicas y las comodidades en ella no son lo mejor televisor viejo, cama normal, baño con problemas en la ducha . No volveria a menos que al estar alla no tuviese otra opcion

Hostal bien, pero demasiado caro.
El hotel es centrico y su personal amable, las instalaciones lucen renovadas, aunque en un estilo antiguo. Más que un hotel es un hostal. Las habitaciones son frías, la TV rídicula. Pero nadie se aloja para ver tv. Las camas son cómodas.Todo esto no estaría mal si su precio al menos 20 o 30% inferior. En mi opinión es demasiado caro para el servicio que ofrece.
