This is a modest, clean, centrally located high-rise hotel frequented by budget-minded travelers. It seemed pretty full during our stay of about one week in Nov. & Dec., 2011. This hotel is conveniently close to most of Santiago´s major sights—the wonderful Pre-Columbian art museum, lovely municipal theater, Plaza de Armas, La Moneda, Barrio Paris-Londres. The hotel is only 5 blocks from the main subway line, and near two bus terminals. There are not many good restaurants nearby except for the wonderful Donde Augusto seafood restaurant in the nearby Municipal Market and the traditional Bar Nacional about 3 blocks from this hotel. Those who want to be near more restaurants and better shopping should consider staying in La Providencia or the more trendy Las Condes.
Pros—clean, decent size, good beds, hardwood floors, flat screen TV, desk, good service at reception, pretty good buffet breakfast, relatively inexpensive ($95 jr. suite).
Cons—Wi-Fi does not work in the rooms. There are two computers at reception that guests can use free, but they are pretty busy. The hotel blocks phone calls on Skype. My shower did not drain well but it didn’t fill up much.
