“Very convenient for buses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

The great advantage of this hotel is its excellent location in respect of bus terminals. It adjoins the Alameda one used by Tur bus, serving the airport, Valparaiso and elsewhere, and also the one for Pullmantur. There is an escalator down to the metro station from Tur bus so it is easy to reach the city centre. Although it is not a salubrious area, the convenience compensates for this.
The hotel is new and modern and much cheaper than other parts of the city. My room was small, but well designed, and had a view out over the city. TV had BBC World. However, my towel was worn and there was no facility to drink anything. I had to ask specially for a plastic cup. The buffet breakfast was not extensive but quite adequate. Although I had believed I had paid in advance via the Accor website, the hotel said they did not operate that way and I had to pay them directly. However, this had the great advantage of not paying the Chilean taxes which the Accor website price included, and I did not end up paying twice.

This was a very cheap room and did what was required. It was right next to the bus station (1 minute walk) for our early bus. The room was small, but clean and reasonably comfortable. Nice bathroom with good shower. Good wifi. Service in the 24 hour bar downstairs was a little strange. The person on duty didn't know how to make most of the half a dozen drinks offered, so we gave up and went to bed! There is some food served, or there is a food court in the bus station. Didn't try breakfast (not included).

Rooms are quite small, but in accordance to the price. Very clean. No need to pay more just for transit or for sleep. If you have luggages and plan to take the train, the station is NOT only 1 block down the street as stated by personal. Take a cab.
Mall del centro, restaurant minutes away. Great location for transit.
If you plan on visiting book nearer the plaza del arma in the center.
If you plan on shopping book around costanera or las condes where the main shopping malls are. You ll save a lot in cabs and time.

We booked this hotel because we had one night in Santiago and we wanted to be close to the bus station. It didn't disappoint. You can see the hotel from all of the bus terminals, so we didn't waste time (or a taxi fare) trying to find it. Once we'd checked in it was a 90 second walk to the metro station, and we were in the centre of the city within 5 minutes. The metro runs late, and we arrived back at the hotel at 11.30pm. I didn't feel unsafe at all. The bus station area was busy, but mostly full of travellers and people selling food, souvenirs etc. it was also well lit, so there's no need to be anxious if you're sensible. The room was very clean and the breakfast was good. Cheap buses to the airport leave every half hour from one of the nearby bus stations, so leaving and going to the airport couldn't have been easier.

Convenient hotel next to the central bus station for coming and going in and out of Santiago. We were 2 adults and 1 child in a vey efficient room with a trundle-like bed for our daughter. Hot showers, good air conditioning and sufficient breakfast.

We stayed here for 1 night, after an overnight bus trip from Puerto Varas. It is next to the bus station, so it was very convenient. It's a typical Ibis hotel: clean room, comfortable bed, reliable wifi. and good breakfast.
