“My favorite hideaway in Puerto Varas!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2009

This is my second time staying in Los Alerces and it won't be my last. I love the wood construction, the common areas, the very comfortable rooms, their temperature controlled pool, their more than adequate breakfast, the view from the room. I love everything. Their personel are courteous, from Christy in reservations to Christian in the front desk, their service was excellent. Christian offered to burn my digital photos to a DVD in his personal laptop just in case that I might loose my camera, i wont loose my memories. Where else do you get that personalized service? I negotiate a rate of about $52.00 a night/room for two including breakfast if I paid with dollars. Make sure you don't pay the IVA and you can save the 19% tax charged. As with any wood constructions, you might sometimes feel the guests in the rooms on top of you when they walk in their rooms. they have hotel rooms and cabanas that could accomodate up to 6 people I think.
The hotel is on the road bordering the Llanquille lake, 1 mile from the Casino and the downtown. We walked to it several times and it only takes 20 minutes. It could be very easily one of the most beautiful walks you would do in your life. The views from the lake, with the Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes in the horizon are breathtaking. the sunsets are unbelievable.
Add an LG 42" flat screen TV with satellite in your room and you will find Los Alerces one of the best places to stay in Puerto Varas. I am sure you will fall in love with it as I did.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2009

The property is split among the Hotel and the Cabanas. I rented a cabana for USD$80 p/n. The cabin had three bedrooms (1 room with double bed, 2 single beds, 1 trundle bed). The place was tidy but decorated a bit darkly with heavy reds and golds. The furniture in the main living room needs updating to a more modern style.
The cabin was cleaned every day and fresh soap and towels provided daily.
The rate included a simple complimentary breakfast comprising of cereal, juices, coffee, teas, toast, jam, cheese.
Equipped with cable TV in the master bedroom and main living room.
Only downside, the cabins have no phones and contacting the front desk required a walk up to the hotel all the time.

The main town is within easy walking distance next to the lake and the views are spectacular. We hired a car and drove from town to town in the area, (much simpler).

We found this place on the internet and stayed there three nights. We walked right in (April) and got $65/night for a double with queen bad. The outside of the hotel looks a little run down but it's much nicer inside. Clean rooms. We had a great view of the lake. It's not super close to downtown but the buses and taxis/colectivos are very cheap.
