We booked our stay at the hotel after reading different reviews. We can't understand the good ratings this hotel gets. The 'old' part is outdated & noisy (you can even hear the people in the next room). The breakfast was really bad - we bought our own in the end. The shower needs renovation and the bed replacement. The staff... More

I was concerned when I saw some of the reviews and almost did not stay. Glad we did. The place was done by some architect who was well known. The breakfast was outstanding and the rooms were nice, and we had a small frig. We used the hot tub. It was close to the city so easy to walk. There... More

We arrived in Castro in the pouring rain with no reservation and the very helpful local tourist office sent us here - we are glad they did! The standard rooms are small so we upgraded to a suite for relatively little extra. The room was large and comfortable with nice views. The hotel is well located and it is easy... More

Funny... WiFi worked great at my $50 hovel, and was slower than snails here! Plus the noise from the karaoke bar is no joke. I slept OK with ear plugs, but the music is quite loud and many rooms face this bar! That said, I got friendly help from the staff and LOVED the pool and JACUZZI! Breakfast is the... More

I stayed there 1 night and I wont never stay there again ever (not even if the hotel give me money for it). The doorman was extremely rude to me and he even grabbed me because he thought I was too young for being in charge of a group and he told me that he knew better about everything because... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hosteria de Castro Isla Chiloe. We found the location very good and the view from the dining room. We had room in the old part so I can not comment on the new wing which have views from the rooms. Our rom looked out on a car park and was rather small... More

This was billed in one of the travel books as the best in Castro. Forget that! We were in the older section of the hotel (the new adjacent building where the indoor pool is located must be a lot nicer...hopefully.) We had a view of the water (room 307) which was nice. We stayed 3 nights...Thursday, Friday and Saturday. No... More

We only stayed 24h, enough to experience two situations that will give you an impression of this "place" I refuse to call hotel... (1) We checked in and found old towels and used tampons in the bathroom. After telling them several times to kindly clean our room, we got the answer that the cleaning staff has checked the room and... More

the public rooms are quite nice with excellent views and the restaurant is more than decent. our room was depressingly small though — bed basically touched three walls. worked for one quick night, but suggest you ask in advance for one of the bigger rooms.

Stayed for one night in a double room after we asked to be switched because the first room was a bit small, especially the bathroom (one of those tiny shower cubicles) and the toilet seat a bit loose (though the toilet seats in both rooms also didn't fit the toilets properly, which personally I find slightly uncomfortable). The staff were... More
