Arrival is a bit un-prepossessing, a wide sandy road wends its away out of town between straggly bushes, wire fences and tottering walls. The hotel entrance is a just a door in an adobe wall alongside the road but inside is a friendly welcoming reception and small seating area/bar with restaurant alongside. Rooms are in separate single- story adobe buildings...

A tranquil desert escape , the hotel provides individual Adobe style rooms that blend with the area. There is a decent size pool area, lovely gardens and a restaurant all in a very quiet setting on the edge of town. Whilst the rooms are very spacious and comfortable they lack a mini bar or fridge and any tea or coffee...

We spent three nights in November , the hotel staff were all very friendly and welcoming . The facilities were excellent particularly when you consider its location. The owners have put a great emphasis on being able to relax in a number of comfortable outside areas , making the hotel a great place to relax after experiencing both the heat...

My wife and I went for a trip to San Pedro de Atacama, we rented a car and pick it up at the airport in Calama, the scenery from the beginning was just stunning driving through the driest desert in the world. Our arrival at the hotel was welcomed with a drink and then a little rest in our room...

This is a stunning hotel with magnificent views but sadly it lets itself down on service. The pool area is lovely but not given any obvious attention - the pool is quite dirty & there are no staff around so it gets rather rowdy (not the relaxing space I'd hoped for). Room was lively but very dark - the lights...

I stayed at Hotel Altiplánico for one night and Hotel Cumbres for 7 nights. When I walked in I was pleasantly surprised to find that this hotel was a miniature version of Cumbres, but half the price! When I was at Cumbres, I could see that they had placed a lot of efforts (even to the minor details, e.g. music...

Before I talk about the hotel itself, I should point out that the worst thing about the hotel is the distance from the "main strip". It's at least a 20 minute walk and at night it feels very dangerous. There's hardly any street lights or cars, etc. We were never threaded at all, and the city it apparently very safe;...

This hotel is reasonably far away from the centre of town, reached by a dusty track which is a 15 minute walk unless you have your luggage with you. Then a taxi is needed. After dark then torches are a good idea. The rooms are OK, rather basic and in need of some repair, but OK despite that. The hotel...

A quirky hotel down a dusty road delivers an oasis in the arid location . Clean and different first impressions are soon lost by the tranquil and relaxing delivery this hotel offers . Staff are on hand to help and resolve any issues, give advice on trip,eating places etc. The age and style of this hotel adds to the feeling...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away on a gentle stretch of land in the outskirts of San Pedro, surrounded by the quiet presence of the Andes, Altiplanico San Pedro faces the impressive Licancabur Volcano, with a unique design inspired in the style of an Altiplano village. Enjoy the famous Atacama sunsets and relax from the smoldering sun in the fresh covers of our private terraces and beautiful swimming pool after a day exploring the driest desert in the world. The hotel was developed following the concept of visual silence, the eye registers the hotel in its totality included in the in the immensity of the Atacama desert. ... more   less
