We will have 2 nights (half day plus 1 full day) in Santiago in Jun/Jul before flying out early morning. Which area should we book our hotel. Important issues are safe area, walking distance to sights, we like to spend the day exploring, eat lunch in a beautiful park or casual relaxed dining where we can try typical Chilean food in a place with atmosphere. Not interested in fine dining, fast food, burgers or big hotel buffets etc. We have enjoyed staying in the city centre in the historical areas of Madrid, Paris, Rome, Buenos Aires etc as they are full of character. We will not be going to any nightclubs. Would only do 1 museum or art galley. I just don't know what areas to start at and what to avoid. From recommendations on TA I am thinking of Bellas Artes or Lastarria. Can you advise which areas you think would suit?
