Holiday Inn Express Iquique

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It is located steps away from the walkable oceanside, Some rooms even have panoramic views over the ocean and as well over the (sand) mountain which "squeezes" the town towards the pacific. Nice breakfast.

A clean, value for money hotel located close to restaurants and bars. Go for an ocean view room, the sound of the breakers is soothing. Staff were always polite and helpful, and they spoke English fluently. In a city where tap water taste awful, bottled water in the room would be appreciated.

Good location, good price, nice personnel but windows need cleaning, overshadow the view to the great Pacific Ocean. I loved the breakfast bar, great variety of fresh bread, cold cuts and fruits. Good

This hotel is starting to show its age. The beds are worn and the air conditioners are old. The smell in the rooms is indicative of the wear. There are some positives. The rooms have coffee makers, irons, hair dryers, bath cloths (a rarity in Chile), and a complete breakfast. The price does not match the expected quality. The staff was friendly.

Short sunny long weekend, beach, shopping and a good rest, Good hotel deal by Booking.Com, nice clean place. Well served and better for IHG members. Great service at the front desk. Little moisty on hallways (No A/C)

Our Holiday Inn bedroom windows on the ground floor looked out over a patio area for drinkers and smokers. Everyone out there could watch our every move. The hand basins in the men's lavatories were full of what appeared to be a mixture of vomit and cold tea. The hotel's internet was very insecure. Our room safe did not work. Everything in the hotel was frayed and unlooked after. Plus points...position in town, and comfortable beds.

This hotel has most of what you would expect from a Holiday Inn - comfortable beds, safe in the room and an iron, but there's no fridge. The breakfast food is pretty low quality and the coffee is awful. It's handy for the Jumbo supermarket but a 30 minute walk into town, or 20 minutes in the other direction for restaurants. Traffic noise is quite bad. When we stayed, the pool was out of use due to maintenance (why doesn't the hotel tell you this when you book? You only find out when you arrive). Also the rear car park was having some maintenance, and we had to park outside. We have stayed at better hotels in Iquique for the same price.

HI Express was excellent allowing us to checkin early at 6 am after our bus ride from La Paz. It is a slow 30 minute walk along the seafront to the centre. There is a Jumbo supermarket next door, and currency exchange. Stayed with points for two nights.

Hotel on the sea front. Not bad, but not a place you fall in love with either. Good beds, you can open a small window, aircon, safe. Wifi ok. Bathroom outdated but clean. Breakfast nothing special. Easy access by car. Free parking and guard during the night. Nice ocean view. Bummer: no restaurant but snacks and drinks. They do have a list of restaurants and delivery possible. Staff ok.

Stayed here for few day on a business trip in May, 2014. Lovely location and excellent services by the hotel staff. Amazing view from the room.Breakfast was normal, same as being served in other holiday inn hotels.
