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!

What a gem in Punta Arenas. We stayed at Ilaia for two nights in February 2015. Such a warm and beautiful property. The staff is so accommodating and loving. We felt like family and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are well appointed and very tranquil.

Spent a night at this hotel in Punta Arenas at the end of our adventure in Torres del Paines. We were so glad to have chosen it: - Location - near the centre of town, restaurants & supermarket. Only 2 blocks away from Fernandez bus terminal but far enough to be quiet. Punta Arenas itself did not have a lot... More

While the hotel is mostly basic amenities-wise, it has a lot of heart! The rooms and the hotel are very clean. The staff are ultra helpful, even the ones with limited English language skills. Wifi is technically only available in the common areas, but rooms that are near those areas might benefit from their location. There's 2 computers available for... More

The Ilaia Hotel felt more like home to us, rather than a boutique hotel. We had a wonderful stay here and you can't go wrong with choosing this hotel the next time you visit Punta Arenas. Service: the staff are absolutely wonderful, helpful and delightful. Big smiles always greet us at breakfast and whenever we come back from our day... More

My son and I stayed here at the beginning of our journey to Torres del Paines last week, and also on our return trip back through Punta Arenas on to Santiago. We are SO glad we stayed here, especially on our return trip. We hiked pretty hard that week, and this place was so comfortable and relaxing. The beds are... More

My husband and I spent one night at Ilaia before our cruise. The owners are very friendly and helpful with our needs. The property has a beautiful rooftop area where you can get a great view of the town. The rooms are nicely appointed and food at breakfast was plenty. Overall very happy with the hotel. I only wished that... More

Quiet lovely hotel with great service. Really nice breakfast. Has a sun room on the top of the building with great view. If wifi doesn't work well, then there are two house computers that are set up which worked great. Location excellent, two blocks from bus station where you can get a bus for one dollar out to the awesome... More
