This hotel is located in Downtown Santiago, close to the Metro and within walking distance of many good restaurants and attractions. Our room was more like a suite and a pleasant change from many rooms we had encountered while staying 5 weeks in South America. It was large, bright and airy with plenty of storage and good bathroom facilities. The... More

I spent four days here while on business in Santiago. The main attraction of this hotel was its location which allows you to reach the city centre in minutes on foot. But the overall impression of the hotel is one of a bit worn, in need of some renovation. But nothing major to put you off. My room was quite... More

we stayed here as part of a package tour, and as a result, I cannot speak to the value for dollar, but as a hotel experience, it was generally satisfactory. The location is convenient to downtown Santiago, in some regards almost too convenient as the access via a narrow, crowded street posed major problems for the tour bus -- the... More

The hotel is centrally located in the "old city" very close to the Plaza de Armas, Metropolitan Cathedral, Santiago City Hall, Presidential Palace... More

We stayed at Hotel Fundador at the start of a tour of South America. I was pleasantly surprised at joe nice the hotel was - clean, modern and a good location. The breakfast is simple but similar to all the other breakfasts I've had in South America. The price was very reasonable. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant one... More

Stayed here twice as part of a tour throughout South America. This was our first night's accommodation. The décor in the foyer was nice, like any old hotel. Slightly worn, but plenty of space to sit down. Bar area inside the restaurant available too. The décor in the rooms and halls, was not in keeping with the foyer. I do... More

I enjoyed my stay but watch out if your room faces Serrano street because the evening street noise and occasional street musicians can be very loud. I had my meals in the hotel dining room which is very comfortable with a very helpful staff. The portions tend to be quite large, even by American standards, but I found that to... More

This hotel is extremely well located close to the pedestrian area and the main plaza. I had room 726 in the annex (you cross a bridge on the 4th floor to get to this part of the building). Room was good size, had a flat-screen TV and the bathroom had good hot water and excellent water pressure. The room has... More
