Pros. Friendly staff, nice pool, modern, clean, sort of luxury, nice restaurants. Contras. In my room I heard the noise of the hotel's disco the whole night, the elevators didn't work very well, and the location and the neighborhood weren't the best.
Nice Hotel and very well located in the city of Antofagasta. I traveled with my family. Close to the Antofagasta Mall, restaurants, public transportation, stores, you name it. I will gladly stay at the Holiday Inn Express Antofagasta again.
This is a newish 14 storey hotel within a short walk to the sea. The room was of a modest size with a big modern bathroom. All the facilities were of a high standard, but the overall look was not as good as it could be due to poor building workmanship.The bed was big and very comfortable. Tea and coffee was available in the room together with a number of complimentary soft drinks in the minibar (included in the room rate).
Breakfast was excellent for Chilean standards, with fresh fruit, cereals, Yoghurt, various types of bread, cakes, pastries, cheese, ham, scrambled eggs etc.
We ate at the hotel restaurant on two nights, on both occasions the food was of an excellent standard and very reasonably priced.
We had to choose a hotel for a one night stop over in the city and this place stood out for it's price (much cheaper) and photos of the rooms on the website. When we arrived it by far exceeded our expectations, we had a large comfortable space in which to relax. The staff were helpful and friendly, even with out late night check in. It was the best room we had in Chile.
Located half way between the main plaza and old town, and the main supermarket and new part of central town, it's a great location.
It's only 5 minutes walk to the old port Puerto Viejo where you can buy fresh seafood to kill for and see sea lions basking and being fed. On the way is the extraordinary railway museum - Barrio Historico Ex Estacion. It's only 5 minutes the other direction to the main beach Baleario Municipal with a fabulous resaurant serving BBQ food at really good prices, chorripan on the sidewalk and major supermarkets nearby.

The Ibis Antofagasta hotel is located in the popular Avenida Brasil area, close to the city's business district and just 5 …More
At check-in, the young guy at the front desk was very rude and a smart alec.
Floor/ carpet was stained. Looked out my window expecting to see the water and saw a roof of the shed that is hooked to the hotel.
Wireless internet was terrible and couldn't work from my room
They were not very accomadating to our needs.
There was another guy that checked in after me with the same problem and they were rude to him as well.
