We chose to stay here as we planned to take the train from Chillan to Santiago. As we had seen Bernardo's representation often in South America we felt it would be fitting to stay in his Birthtown and in the Hotel named for him. The hotel's location was convenient to the bus and train stations- we walked down to the train on the second morning.
The prices in Chillan are on the high side but it is a small town and there is less competition.
We were welcomed in a very friendly way by the non-English speaking Receptionist. (It did not distress us to meet people who do not speak English- after all I don't speak much Spanish and none in Australia.) She recommended a stunning local restaurant for our dinner and she explained we had breakfast included in the tariff. Wifi was better downstairs.
Our room was warmish- the heating had been turned on shortly before we arrived I would say and so we headed down to use the fire where we could read and/or relax.
The bed was only a Double, but we survived! It sagged a little in the middle but hey, it's the country.
The water was hot when we took showers and the Breakfast was enjoyable. I had café con leche on the first morning and café solo con un poco de leche the second. The quality of the coffee is pretty average but the lady who served us was friendly and the bread was good.
Overall it is expensive for what you get but we enjoyed our stay and found the staff to be friendly.
