The El Auracano is the 'grand old hotel' in Concepcion, well situated near the main square and shopping streets, and within walking distance of the university. Some of the infrastructure and fittings (e.g. bathrooms) are showing their age but the hotel has clearly also been refurbished and kept in a good state of repair. My standard double room on the...

location great as it is besides the main square. Breakfast very simple and was missing some basic items. But the main concern was with the bed, I was itching for a couple of days after i stayed there and had some rushes.

I stayed here for two nights on business. The location of the hotel is on the city's square, but it is old and in need of an update. The rooms were dingy, as were all of the seating areas in the hotel. I left my rental car in the hotel garage. Despite there being an attendant, someone scraped my car...

The rooms were nice and the food was good. A/C did not work and asked and it was never fixed. Luckily it was cool out so I left the window opened and put up with the noise. If you wanted hot turn on the faucet and let it run for 5-7 minutes. The inter net was so bad that for...

The location of the hotel next to Plaza Independencia is perfect. All downtown business is close by and the walk to the university at Plaza Perú is about 15 minutes. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful, but the property itself needs some upkeep. I had a room facing away from Caupolican and it seems the hotel...

Comfortable and with all the things needed in a relaxed and clean hotel. Decoration could be updated (has a 80's and 90's flair) but knowing the past of the hotel gives certain dignity. With an outstanding big heated swimming pool in the basement it is a perfect place in town for bussines and touristic visit. It worth the price.

The hotel is just across the street from the Plaza de Armes and down the street a few blocks from the main pedestrian shopping area in Concepcion.

The site is just perfect overlooking Plaza de Armas and you are really near everything you need. Shopping, food, 10 mins from the stadium. The breakfast is not perfect but in general the location is just fantastic and spares lots of time.

Really good hotel in the middle of concepcion. Not the moderns rooms, but very clean, beds very good. Breakfest ok, bar has a good climat, so, I will go here next time again. Also: not expansive at all.
