I visited San Pedro on 01/03/17-01/06/17 with my 12 yrs and 20 yrs old daughters. We got a good deal for the hotel. Great communication with the staff previous booking. The hotel was very well located, in a small street close by the main st @ downtown. Complimentary and nice breakfast everyday, welcome drinks. Our room had 2 twin beds,...

We stayed for a week over New Years and really enjoyed this hotel. Right off the Main Street, so close to lots of dining and shopping options. The rooms are rustic but very comfortable. Hotel is quiet at night. The staff are great and will go out of their way to help improve your stay. An added benefit is that...

A beautiful little hotel situated just a few steps from San Pedro's main road. Rooms at the Hotel Kimal are well appointed and afforded a good night's sleep. The bathroom worked fine. No-one speaks any English (and why should they?) which makes communication difficult. But we are in the middle of the Atacama Desert.

Great town surrounded by beautiful natural sights. Hotel is basic (unsurprising given where it is) but clean and comfortable. Good breakfast and lovely staff, even a nice dip pool. Avoid room 1 though. Too close to the food area and people sit out at night drinking and laughing. Which is great as long as it's not right by your headboard...

We stayed at Hotel Kimal for 3 nights. Overall, it had been an enjoyable stay. Location: very central, and it's a 5-10 min walk max to most of the restaurants / tour agencies in San Pedro. Yet, it's just off the main street - hence it's very peaceful/quiet at night. Rooms: decent size and clean. It feels a little bit...

We spent a couple of nights in Hotel Kimal after our 3 day tour of the Salar de Uyuni. A lovely hotel and perfect place to slow down and relax. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. There are external areas around the hotel where you can sit either by your room or by the pool. The attached restaurant provides a...

This is an upscale hotel, nice grounds, nice rooms, good restaurant, super staff. The rooms are good size with comfortable beds. It does get cold here and there are small furnaces in each room. The only thing is I think it gets hot here as well and I didn't see any AC although there is a small fan in the...

The Kimal hotel is an oasis in the heart of the oasis of San Pedro. There is no tv in the rooms and wifi is scarce, the point is to simply rest! In the middle of the day the areas are nice and cool, at night they are warm. The restaurant is excellent and we ate many times because it...

For a 3 star hotel this far exceeded our expectations. Staff were lovely and very helpful and informative about excursions and general tour recommendations. Rooms were spotless. Good breakfast. Kimal Spa was excellent - we tried thier deep tissue massage. Would definitely go there again!
