Mi estadía en Iquique fue por motivos laborales. La recepción y orientación respecto de la residencia, como también de puntos de interés cercanos fue muy expedita. En cuanto a la habitación( con baño compartido) se ajustó correctamente a mis necesidades y el baño muy limpio.

I loved it here! It was comfortable, had a great atmosphere, and was in a great spot! The only thing is that the kitchen didn't feel very clean. And the fridge was disgusting, though it did finally get cleaned out my last day.

Muy buen lugar, excelente ubicacion, si podrían comprar algo mejor para las moscas, calurosas las piezas pero es producto del clima de Iquique. En general es totalmente recomendable.
