This was our first hotel on a trip to Chile, and we arrived there after an exhausting series of delayed flights and waiting in the Santiago airport, not one of the most user-friendly. So, maybe this review is influenced by the circumstances.
The room was more than acceptable. Comfortable, with instant on hot water, nice views out the window, and good room heating.
The location is excellent for a short visit to Arica, not far from the airport, close to the beach and the wetlands at the mouth of the Llata River.
WiFi worked well in the lobby and restaurant, but coverage in the room was problematical. The TV lacked any international programming, and our Spanish was inadequate for the Chilean offerings.
Breakfast included scrambled eggs in addition to the usual Chilean offerings of bread, cold cuts, and cheese, a plus.
Later we stayed in another Diego de Almagro hotel (in Punta Arenas, reviewed separately) that was nicer than this one.
I would like to give 3.5 stars, but that option doesn't seem to be available.More
