Like a modern beacon amongst the traditional wooden houses, Dreams hotel is Coyhaique's biggest hotel and towers above its surroundings. With great height comes stunning views, you can eat your breakfast looking out across the city, all the way to the tree-clad hills in the distance. The staff have easy smiles, are incredibly helpful and speak good English.
The rooms are typical of an upmarket hotel, with a swirling patterns on the carpet and a wooden finish to furniture. There is a casino, sky bar and buffet restaurant on site, and it's located just a short walk from the main square.
Nomades mixes modern architecture with rustic art: there are animal skins on the floors and soft furnishings and photos of Tehelche people on the walls. It gets the best of both worlds in Coyhaique with its perfect location - walk out of the front door and you're minutes from the central square, look out of the bedroom windows and you've got views of the Simpson reserve and river. Service is relatively hands-off, but if you are happy to be self-sufficient and would rather see the river from your shower than have overly interested hosts, then this is a great choice.
I love hanging out in Coyhaique; seeing all the people in from the countryside to re-supply, enjoying the incredible food at Mamma Gaucha, Adobe or Ruibardo and sampling craft beer. There is always some sort of festival on in the main square.

Hosted by the charming, English speaking, Juan Pablo and Katy, this is a home away from home. Located under the Mackay Hill and just 20 minutes walk out of town, this hotel is high up above the town. You can see all the way across the Simpson Valley from the large, clean rooms.
A bright, modern boutique hotel located on a hillside high above the busy streets of Coyhaique, you have the sense of being far from the hustle and bustle of the city while being only minutes away. Stay in luxury in this peaceful setting amidst the trees with fantastic views of the Coyhaique valley.
'Reloj' means clock, and the hotel is so named after the cuckoo clock which hangs on the wall and chimes every hour. Opened in 2001, it is one of Coyhaique's older hotels. The owner Angel is warm and welcoming, passionate about the building which he transformed from being a saw mill into a comfortable hotel. There is a comfy sitting room reception, a restaurant decorated with plush old world furniture, a sun room to enjoy both sunny and rainy days, and even a small garden filled with fruit trees from which they make jams for breakfast.
Despite being just off one of Coyhaique's main streets, El Relj backs onto the Coyhaique river with views across the reserve, and looking out across the gorge you really feel like you're out of town.
Belisario is set in a beautifully kept rose garden onto which all the rooms open out. The rooms are a good size, clean, comfortable, with a powerful shower. The staff don't speak much English but they are attentive, and if you find yourself needing certain information they'll do their best to help. The breakfast is incredible, served in a cosy sitting room/breakfast room (with a permanently burning fire) are mountains of cakes, cheese, cold meats and eggs. Located just a block from the main square and close to the supermarket, this is a great base for doing your mid-trip admin.
Los Raices B&B
A centrally located B&B close to facilities and with a more modern feel than the majority of hospedajes in town.
Great for backpackers, Hostal Gladys has good wifi, comfy beds, great showers and a decent sized breakfast. The decor is more than a little dated and some rooms are poky with no windows, but the staff are friendly and the prices are low.
