We stayed at this hotel for only one night, but had a very enjoyable stay. The room was well appointed and quiet. We found the staff very helpful and friendly. We didn't eat there but had an enjoyable drink on the top floor, pre-Saturday night crowd. Great view of the harbor.

We chose to stay at this hotel on the front and back end of our trip to Antarctica for a total of 3 nights. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of the downtown area and plenty of restaurants. There is a casino in the lower level of the hotel along with a convention or meeting room...

Although my family and I did not stay overnight at this hotel, I want to tell the Tripadvisor community of an act of kindness that reflects very well on the management and staff of Hotel Dreams Punta Arenas. My family spent a couple weeks in December vacationing in Chile's Patagonia region. Halfway through the trip, my wife and I, while... More

This hotel was great to stay in. The rooms were large and had very comfortable beds. Food at the restaurant was good, wine was great. Had to switch rooms because the room facing the town let in so much sun in the afternoon that it was extremely hot in the room (and no AC, that's the only downside). The people... More

The Dreams Hotel is the nicest and most modern hotel in Punta Arenas. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. The room was very modern with a separate tub and shower plus the room overlooked the Strait of Magellan. The top floor is a large bar with sweeping views of the city on one side with the Strait...

Please don't get frightened by the reviews. There's NOTHING wrong with this hotel at all. The six of us stayed here for one night before being picked up and driven into Torres Del Paine (Patagonia), and we each had no problem with the hotel. In fact, we were very pleasantly surprised. Dreams del Estrecho is a very modern, glass structure,... More

We made the mistake of staying at the Hotel Dreams for 1 night before catching a flight to Santiago. The beds were uncomfortable, the rooms dirty, and unless you specify the size bed(s) you want, you will be given single beds. To add insult to injury, the thermostat in the room didn't work. Seems like the hotel has seen better... More

A lovely new hotel in a great location overlooking the Straits of Magellan and Tierra del Fuego. You can walk to all the lovely buildings in the city. The restaurant is very nice and the staff very friendly,

We stayed here and were unimpressed. The staff didn't have a great attitude. We went up to the top floor bar and felt like we had gone back in time by 30 years. For a so-called 5 star hotel, it was disappointing...

I stayed two nights at this hotel that faces the strait of Magellan in Punta Arenas Nice rooms but extremely hot as you cannot adjust the temperature, there is a termostat but it simply does not work Breakfast is fine but as seems they want to show a fancy style they fail and lack on quality, coffee is mouldy and...
