It is probably not that important to the locals but a water softener would make any hotel in Santiago a standout. Because of this the shower is a low point of your stay. The rooms are average size and furnished OK. Noise from above, below, and from all sides is what to expect. On the whole the rooms are OK... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel. The front desk staff spoke good English and were very pleasant. The first room we were given was an outside room on a corner. It was like an icebox and very noisy. The airconditioning did not work so they moved us immediately to an inside room. The room was quiet and... More

Spent 2 nights with my 9 year old Son during the first round of Copa America. We got the Superior Suite, great space, but in general the hotel desperately needs an update. Bed are cero comfortable and the bathrooms are crying for an update. The hotel is near to a major avenue and it's easy to get access to taxis... More

Hotel Fundador was booked for me by a work colleague, and is a bit above my usual price range. It is a good, clean hotel in a great location. Staff were great, and there was always someone on hand who could speak English. Breakfast was included in my deal, and the spread was impressive. The restaurant may well have been... More

My sister and I stayed 3 nights here on our way to Peru. We found the hotel staff to be very helpful, and many spoke good English. We felt safe and the location is handy to the metro, shops and banks. Don't be afraid to use the metro - it is very easy. It is also worth looking at the... More

My stay at Hotel Fundador was brief but nice. The staff were patient with me as I used Google translate to ask for help. Breakfast is generous and included in the room charge. Enjoyed empanadas one evening with a glass of wine after a full day of visiting sites like Pablo Neruda's house in Bellavista, San Cristobal, and the "Virgen."

This hotel is in the heart of Santiago and convenient for sightseeing. We arrived on the overnight flight from Madrid and had to wait until the afternoon too check in. Good breakfast and facilities. We only stayed two nights before flying South but we would return.

This was our first stop in South America - we stayed here for 2 nights. We had a half day tour organised for the morning after our arrival so at 9am we left for that. The room did not have a safe so as I sometimes do, I locked my suitcase with my passport and cash etc inside. When I... More

Very nice hotel. Good breakfast buffet and very good location, only 1 minute from the metro Universidad de Chile and a few minutes walk to the city center. It is not the most modern hotel but the room was clean and has a fine size, the bed was good and the wifi worked even though it was a bit slow.

It's not the kind of hotel you'll remember forever, however it certainly is well located, modern, and front staff are kind and accomodating. We were on a group tour, so no choice on accommodations, but it worked out great! The hotel is well located - right near the main plaza, a subway station, and loads of currency exchange places. A...
