    A place to stroll in the middle of Palm trees, pools of water dancers and overlooking the imposing nose and the famous Cathedral of Arica.

    Cute place a true oasis in the middle of the desert. Lack concern for keeping a little better place, referring to the environment the sidewalks, since it has an incredible nose view.

    The desert area in the North of Chile is something that surprises many people who do not imagine a landscape like this. But at the same time, the areas where there is water, as in the valleys of the area of Arica, are true oasis in the desert. The more than century-old plaza Colón is a sample of the Green that can be. An urban experience.

    Its rooms are a standard, between double rooms for example beds are not the same, this week there was no hot water, the excuses were, or were there many people at the hotel, I think that was not valid that response, second cable was cut not had. In general the hotel is not bad, but you have to improve it, it is saving the central that is.

    We got forced to this place. We made a reservation via booking for the Amaru, which belongs to the same owner... Upon arrival, they told me that they tried to contact me... (I had no missed call.) To anticipate what happened. The hotel was full, and they offered me to go to the Plaza. It is neglected, frayed and lack of privacy curtains. Low-light, repeated and scarce breakfast...

    Only by the good location and good service of the staff, but this last visit the service left much to be desired...

    Just tell them. That by "seizing" the silver of new customers. Leave aside those who pay in advance. My opinion. Bad boy
