Liked: The little patios were nicely surrounded with flowers and greenery. The owner was extremely helpful in suggesting bus routes to the sea and in recommending the few better restaurants. There is a good museum and an interesting house of a former President (1940s) to see.

Disliked: As with all hotels in La Serena it is far from the beaches.

20 January 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very nice place to spend a few days and relax. Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was really good (if not a bit early 7-9). We did have laudry done but it was pretty expensive (about 35 GBP) but it was really clean!!.La sarena was ok but a little dull, we went there for christmas and not much was open and the hotel was quiet so not much socialising there either.
