The hotel is clean, but the neighbors are derelict buildings with trash everywhere. There is a small bar on the third floor where you can get a glass of wine and a couple of different sandwiches, but they don't have any ice available. There is a patio with a few tables but very few chairs. If you need a hair... More

We have read the reviews and know this boutique hotel is highly rated....but obviously something has changed here at this hotel. I have never rated a hotel so low before...where do I start. Upon arrival at 10 pm we find out our room is right next to the bar and they are cranking music out onto the their patio which... More

However looks deceive and once inside this old house has been totally remodelled as a hotel with about 12 rooms, a kitchen whivh is available yo prepare... More

Here, you'll find welcoming people, a gorgeous building, a wonderful view, and a cozy cafe on the third floor. Although small, the hotel has all the luxury of being in a grand hotel except more personal. As it is one of the famous palafitos, during low tide, one may want to take advantage and go for a walk under the... More

Located in the middle of the palafito area, facing the water, overlooking from the many terraces all that great pintoresc scenery. Palfito Boutique 2316 is a lovely palafito house, recently renovated with very good taste and good materials. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom spacious and clean. The lady in the reception, the ladies in the café... More

This hotel offers the unique Palafito experience. Our room and bathroom were very nice! Luxury hotel quality. I also have to commend the hotel for having the best shopping in their lobby of any place we found in Chile. They carry a local wool designer whose things are simply beautiful (expensive, but quality)! The only downside for us was that... More

Beautifully situated and nicely appointed room with straight-on view of the bay and sunrise. Friendly staff, great breakfast. Close, short walk up the (steep) hill into town via a pedestrian footpath. The only downside was the incessant noise from the dogs barking, just outside our window. Lasting until midnight, which is when I was able to finally get to sleep,... More

I stayed here with my mum and son. It is a comfy, nice and beautiful place to stay. Staff members are really nice. Everything was clean. No noise. Breakfast was perfect: fruit, juice, kuchen, home made bread, organic scrambled eggs, great coffee and "chilote" cheese and butter. I recommend this place to stay and relax.

We spent two nights in this very comfortable hotel. The views are stunning, especially if you like birdwatching and the sea, and the hotel itself beautifully decorated with Mapuche objects. Stuff friendly and helpful and breakfasts were delicious with home made bread and preserves.
