From the check in everything was smooth and arranged well. The rooms with view over the sound were well appointed and spacious, listening to the tide run over the mudflats was relaxing. The upstairs terrace bar is a plus and fortunately we had dry weather to enjoy it. A shame they only serve hot and soft drinks. Only minus point... More

Located (literally) in a bay the view is breathtaking. The rooms are nice and the beds are cozy. The breakfast is served on a big table, so the guest from all over the world can meet. Very nice and helpful staff which takes personal effort to make customers happy. The location is great. It takes about 15 minutes walking and... More

The 1326 Palafitos Hotel brings the palafito style architecture to a new level, with good detailing on the wood work, rooms nice and cozy, and excellent view from the rooms on the side of the sea, specially the one on the ground floor which has a bigger floor to ceiling window. Other that a modern well maintained facility and friendly... More

I loved Palafitos 1326 hotel in Chiloe Island. The hotel is centrally located in the city of Castro, and is located in the historic Palafito's neighborhood. It features beautiful rooms with great style, as a knitter I loved their incorporation of knit goods, and the beautiful wood work. The rooms were so comfortable I was tempted to sleep in and... More

Loved and loved this place. We got a room facing the water with a little balcony. Very comfortable and the service great. As an added bonus they arranged for a sailing day trip around the area southeast of Castro. We saw some outer islands, fishermen and lots of sea animals. Yes penguins too! The breakfast is served family style and... More

This was a beautiful boutique hotel in Castro. It was really well presented with local furnishings and its location in the middle of Castro's palafitos is unique (it felt surreal staying in a boutique hotel surrounded by ramshackle palafitos!). The staff (particularly the breakfast staff) were lovely and the views from our bay view room were gorgeous. The breakfasts were... More

Location: Be careful about using the location link from this hotel's website. It gives the wrong location. We had a very frustrating time trying to find the hotel until we realised that the link was wrong. If you zoom into the Google Map link then look for the street address you'll find that the street is marked but the location... More

Yes, the hotel is "nice" , quite, and clean... Our room was large with" bay view...). But there is some misery in the houses near the hotel... And the common table for breakfast is not our cup of tea... The breakfast in itself is basic, nothing to complain , nothing to find marvelous...
