Surrounded by good vibes, good energy, and with the warmest of attention you could get in the entire Patagonia! The hotel is superb: clean, cozy, and within easy walking access to the city. The rooftop and the delicious breakfast are both additional signatures that will always invite us back to Ilaia! Such a nice place, owned and staffed by beautiful... More

We loved our stay here. This was where we began and ended our journey to Torres del Paine to do the W-Trek with Eco Camp Patagonia. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful from the moment I booked online and especially while we were staying. They assisted us with booking a shuttle from the airport (met with a sign and...

We loved everything about this place: the rooms, the staff, the location (not too far to walk from the center of town), the breakfast -- nothing went wrong and everything as perfect. The staff helped make arrangements and gave wonderful advice.

The kindness and warmth of the "Ilaia family" was so comfortind and beautiful. The hotel is beatiful, every corner has a unique detail. If planning on going to Punta Arena, Ilaia is the place to stay. The only thing my husband and I regret, is not being able to enjoy more time with Juanita and the Ilaia family, as well... More

In giving this hotel a 5-star review, it makes me want to go back and reduce some of my former ratings to 4-stars, because this sweet little hotel stands heads and tails above many other experiences I've had traveling! We stayed at Ilaia in March 2015 and the staff could not have been more sweet and accommodating, both in the... More

Within walking distance to everything, this lovely little peaceful inn has the nicest staff we have ever met! They take great care of you here -- even offered to serve us breakfast our first morning a 6 am, well before the regular hours, because they knew we had an early boat to catch to see the penguin colonies in the...

In the e-mail we received when booking our two stays at the Ilaia, they wrote: We'll welcome you with our hearts open. After staying there, we can say that it was indeed a welcoming atmosphere and we appreciated the personal family hostel atmosphere at this place. The rooms were well kept and nice. Our highlight was the breakfast with joghurt,... More

We stayed at Ilaia for two nights in February and were very pleased with our experience. If you desire a more traditional hotel (with a pool, mini-bar, business center and other comforts, etc.), this is not the hotel for you. We prefer more interesting/boutique like hotels and this hotel was perfect for us. The hotel and rooms are simply decorated,... More

This small inn is uphill from the downtown but very nice. clean and contemporary, and within walking distance of downtown and the waterfront. Views were great, especially from the 'purple box', a room at the top for reading and looking over the city. In a town that's pretty gritty on the edge of the Magellan Straits, this place is full...

The staff was exceptionally accommodating and the room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was by far the best we had on our entire trip. Few blocks walk to great restaurants and to town. What a find!
