“Excelent Breakfast”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

I have to say the hotel location is magnificent, especially on clear days looking at the volcano. I was there on october so it wasn't busy at all. We got an awesome room, really warm and cozy. The size wasn't that big, but it was sufficient. It is not that far from frutillar, But I recomend a car to optimize your trip as there are many feats in the area within a 1-2 hour drive.

Room Tip: Try the lake view rooms.

Beautiful hotel ! Amazing suite! Awesome views of the lake & Osorno Volcano. There is an outdoor "huge" and very complete jacuzzi which you can reserve for an hour of private use, amidst flowers and pine trees, onlooking the lake and the mountains. Many cute details for St Valentine. We were "on the move", so we just stayed here for this special night, but we WILL surely be back for a longer stay in the future. Frutillar is charming, and so is Elun.

We stayed two nights at Hotel Elun. The room was confortable, nice bed, clean and the best of all there was the magnificent view to Volcán Osorno. Breakfast was really wood (home made marmelade). Free wi-fi in the lobby, the lounge and the restaurant. Staff friendly. Good value for money. We will certainly come back!

This is an excellent hotel with a beautiful lakeview setting. The views towards the lake and Osorno volcano are excellent from all the rooms.There is an attractive lobby and outdoor patio. The food is excellent with homemade breakfasts including freshly squeezed juices, homemade bread and jams,fresh fruit,cereals and cakes. The rooms are of a fair size with nice bathrooms. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is a good choice for those visiting Chile's Lake District. This was my third visit and I will return.Frutillar has a large theatre and concert hall by the lake and this hotel is a short walk from there.

We stayed here the week before Christmas 2009, having chosen it because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor. Our previous trip to Frutillar had been the week after Christmas 12 years before when the town was buzzing. As it turned out, the town and hotel were very quiet. We were the only people staying there for a couple of nights. The hotel is beautiful and very calm. It is the perfect place to curl up with a book, play some boardgames or just stare out of the window at the lake. The rooms are small and one was extremely hot and had to be changed, but the communal spaces are lovely. The hotel does have a restaurant that is supposed to be open 7 nights a week. When we were there they closed it two nights running without telling us in advance the first time. The first night they rustled up some sandwiches but the second night they gave us warning and we went into town. They did open it up for us on our final night. The staff were very friendly and helpful (apart from closing the restaurant without warning on the one night).

My husband, my father, and I stayed at the Hotel Elun in February, toward the end of the summer season. The hotel is on the edge of town, but still plenty close enough to the center of town. The hotel itself is surrounded by some nice gardens. The place was pretty quiet during our stay as the summer season was winding down.

Inside, the place is well kept-up, clean, and bright. The staff is very friendly although I think the front desk staff may be the only ones that speak English well (I speak Spanish). The rooms were clean and bright. Pretty much identical. No complaints about the bed or bedding. My husband did note that the bathroom cleaner had left a bit of a strong scent behind; however, I didn't really notice it.

All the rooms have a great view of the lake, the volcano, and the garden behind the hotel. We stood at the window quite a while on arrival watching a band of swallows hunt over the garden.

We did have onces (afternoon tea) and breakfast at the hotel. The waiter was so very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was standard Chilean fare with coffee (brewed, not Nescafe), fresh juices, kuchen (a fruit pie), and bread and cheeses. While any American should feel pretty at home in this hotel, please don't go and complain that there wasn't a substantial "American" breakfast (a complaint I saw often about different hotels while researching this trip). There is plenty to eat, and you are being offered a solid breakfast by local standards.

Wifi was free or cheap but really only usable in the common area.

Hotel Elun was a great choice for us. Serene, comfortable, and well-kept. Good value as well. We stayed at some very high end hotels during this trip but this cozy little place is where my husband wishes we'd stayed a few more days.

This hotel was a real find and represented excellent value for money. It was recommended to us in a chance meeting with an American businessman who had stayed there and we were delighted that we followed his advice. One of the best aspects of the hotel is its situation on the hill behind the town's main road as it has a magnificent view of Volcan Osorno. In fact, every room has a view. The management are very welcoming and the owner speaks excellent English and is very helpful. We were there slightly off-season and it was very quiet and peaceful. Hotels in Frutillar tend not to be as busy as nearby Puerto Varas, apart from during the classical music festival in the Summer, so if you want a quiet bolt-hole from which to explore the area, this would be a good choice.
