The complex surrounds a large gravel courtyard where there is plenty of room for parking. All the rooms are on the ground floor and are comfortable rather than luxury in style. Breakfast is buffet style and there is plenty of choice. I takes about seven to ten minutes to walk into town along the dusty and dreary Calle Tocopilla but...

This hotel proves that a hotel doesn't need to be new or luxurious to be beloved by travellers. It has a winning formula of good management, service and kindness that is palpable. You immediately feel at ease and every member of the staff from the front desk to the cleaning crew have a smile on their faces and are eager...

Very pleasant staff and good food in the restaurant. Rooms are quite basic, but the hotel is well located, close to the Main Street. The hotel has a pool too. Nice grounds, like a little oasis, after the trips in the desert.

I loved this place in the desert. The staff were friendly, experienced and full of good advice. They were prompt and efficient in their service (including finding an extra heater for me and a blanket to take to El Tatio Geysers - it certainly can get cold overnight). The short walk into town was enjoyable and never a problem. I...

The hotel is basic but has everything you will need to have a comfortable stay. The room is small but there were some nice touches like a small bottle of bubbly on arrival, and a supply of sweets. The breakfast room is a bit small so it pays to get there early. The food is very good considering you are...

Casa de Don Tomas is a very nice hotel. Rooms are not fancy but were clean, comfortable and had what we needed. Breakfast buffet was well presented and, for being in the middle of the desert, nicely done. Later in the day, there is a shady outdoor terrace where you can have drinks, small plates or snacks and recap your...

Stayed for 5 nights, after a lot of travelling. Good location within walking distance to San Pedro. Rooms (and bathrooms) were rather old fashioned but spacious and clean with safety box.No tv, which we didn't realise until we were leaving. There's so much more to see outside! Staff were cheerful, helpful and spoke good English (when our Spanish failed us)....

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. To start with the hotel has a check out time of 1pm which is really good. Big thumbs up for this. The hotel is a 5mins walk from La Caracoles the main street so its really well located. The front desk team was very helpful. They all spoke english:). The rooms were...

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay at the Hotel Casa de Don Tomas. The staff were very friendly and cooperative with any requests that we had. The room was large and always kept very clean. We'd be happy to return there any time. The only less than great experience was with the evening meal that we had...

Stayed here for four nights. Very pleasant friendly staff, good location. Nice grounds to relax in, if you weren't going on an all day excursion. Rooms were clean, though basic. Beds were large and comfortable. A little noisy when thoughtless guests were getting up and leaving for tours and banged doors, but can't blame hotel for that.

“If you want a quiet room, or a lie in, ask not to be near the entrance, as tours to the desert have 5am pick ups.”
