The hotel is not easy to find in the one way system of Santiago with loads of road works going on. However once there the staff could not have been more helpful, even down to ensuring safe parking in the car park for our classic cars. They also arranged a guide of the old city who was excellent. They only... More

Run by three of the most hospitable, helpful, hardworking, and cheerful women, this boutique hotel was the perfect stop in this most fascinating city. We stayed for two nights in busy August and only stayed here by chance because their sister hotel (run by the same family) with the lovely garden was full and instead they offered us a room... More

From the outside a traditional stone house in the old quarter of town, inside a modern boutique hotel. Comfortable room with TV and wifi, all-you-can-eat breakfasts with fruit, enormous slabs of toast, ham, cheese, an amazing array of jams & the local almond tart. Wonderfully friendly staff, they insisted on bringing a tray up to our room when I didn't... More

Small but perfect. Great place to stay. Rooms were lovely and the staff were extremely helpful. Only a short distance from the cathedral so in an excellent location. The breakfast is also great. Highly recommended.

We had a problem at the beginning and the manager handled it quickly and satisfactorily. Our room was very nice. It was a great location a bit away from the chaos but easy walking distance. I do not know where they found such a lovely staff. These young women smiled ALL the time and could not have been more accommodating.

Very kind staffs. Excellent breakfast--worth the extra cost. Good location to walk to the center of town. Stayed in a spacious premium room on the 3rd floor. (The mattress of the sofa bed for extra person needs some improvement but was fine with my family)

Greatly enjoyed my brief stay in this little hotel. Staff could not have been more helpful. Situated in the old town. Free wifi nice ladies working there. There is not really more to be said to get me to 200 characters!
