I was astonished that the Hotel Olicar San Pablo in SCL still exists and has obviously been offered some renovation. I can't really talk of today's quality of that hotel but back in the 90's the colonial style hotel was yet a little run down but it was just a perfect place for backpackers and folks with a small budget (that time I found it via my "Lonely Planet Chile Guide"). It is very close to the city center, the Plaza de Armas and just about 1 km from Pio Nono (night life, bars, restaurants, etc.) in the Barrio Bellavista.

It' a a hotel but seens like a Hostel. The locariam ia Nice, but there até others hotel that are better located and much better service. Everytime you have to go out or get In you have to call someone to open the front door. The bedrooms are very old and in a precarious state of conservation. The serviço of cleaning is not very goog. You have to ask the staff to clean the room. The fact that i paid for a bigger room and they gave me a small one mais me upset, even more because they sais that it was because of the cold weather... They said that In a bigger room I Would be freezing...?!? Oh, no wifii aswell. You have to go to the other hotel to get free internet. The breakfast is servide In you room when you ask, is always late and It's a toast a coofee and a artificial orange juice... Resume: not good service, not Nice people and terrível hotel!

And I'm not just saying that. Other than the fact that it had a bed in a 4-walled room, it was awful. It's an old building, which is kind of cool, but it's completely falling apart. It's really run down and pretty dirty. Their owners are rarely there and they leave their clueless cleaning ladies in charge all the time. The "breakfast" they offer is basically prison food, the minimum possible. WORST of all, THEY CHARGED MORE THAN THE RESERVATION PRICE. I stayed three nights and ended up paying an extra $30 US because I *didn't* pay with US cash.... (something they failed to mention ahead of time). So, for paying in Chilean Pesos, their local currency, I was over charged by $30. Not sure how that made any sense at all. On top of that, I had to walk about 15 blocks to find an ATM to take cash out because the lady didn't know how to use the credit card machine. At least the only thing that got stolen was my shampoo from the bathroom.
