Not good a experiencie at all. Value for money far away from standard. Their heaters are out of control. We spent a night here and it was really unconfortable ,,because their central heat system made us feel like sleeping in hell. We called several times to the front desk to solve the problem and nothing. Sunday morning 6 am very... More

We asked our taxi-driver at the bus station for the "biggest and most expensive hotel" in Chillan. Putting it that way helps avoid being taken to a dump. Our driver had a sense of humour. He said in Spanish "Well, you can stay at my house. It's not big, but it can be expensive!" Anyway, he took us to the... More

We only stayed one night while heading up Ruta 5 and picked the hotel while driving around searching for somewhere to stay. The hotel is located in the middle of town, adjacent to the pedestrian mall. Unfortunately, Chillan doesn't seem to have many restaurants to choose from near the hotel so the downtown location is not particularly useful. However, the... More

Isabel Riquelme is an ok hotel to stay at. Its fairly old as are most hotels along the main highway going south from Santiago. Was here in february and he sun was relentless, unfortunately there is no AC in the rooms but run down to the bar and you'll be able to chill.

It's probably the beat place to stay in chillan. Not too many good options. This place was ok but I think it's not worth the rates they charge but being a very small town I can't really complain. Rooms seemed cleaned and its right in front of a square and beside a pedestrian street that has some restaurants. Fuentes Alemana... More

Living on its past glories the Gran Hotel needs to up its game in the21st century. Fine for an overnight stop but that is about all. some rooms can be very noisy from outside traffic.

There are not too many choices in Chillan for hotels and this one is the best in the area. There is not air conditioning in every room so if that is an issue you may want to confirm whether you can get this. Restaurant is good and the staff is friendly.

When i stopped by and asked for price I was quoted $75.00 USD by an english speaking clerk. When i paid the bill it became $127.00 USD At night you could hear everything that was going on in the hotel, including the A/C s and bathroom fans, people talking. The walls don't seem to be insulated at all. Other than... More

Hotel lost a reservation made nine months in advance, but did come up with an adequate room. Secured parking was in an alley in the next block, but apparently with a guard (we haven't left yet, so can't report on how that worked out!). Service at the desk and in the bar was excellent. But the restaurant was an astonishing... More
