“Great location and value”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

We spent 2 nights and loved it. The staff were great and very helpful with things to see around Santiago. It's very close to the centre of town and Bellavista. The room was small but exactly what we were after and we had a private bathroom. It's very well priced and great value. I would definitely recommend.

Hotel was a really good value. The rooms were clean and a good size. The location of the hotel is very central in the city. Really easy to get around with the subway just a few blocks away. Close to good bars and restaurants in the Bella Vista and surrounding neighborhoods. The staff at the hotel spoke English and was very helpful with directing you around the city. The breakfast was probably my favorite part about this hotel. I stayed at 4 hotels on this trip and Hostal Rio Amazonas had the best. Fresh bread, cheese, homemade jam, fruit, yogurt and fresh made juice...different each day. My favorite was the kiwi juice!

Great location, accommodating of our 2 young sons, yummy (and healthy) breakfast, clean and comfy rooms. Our room (second floor corner room for 4) was noisy (traffic and street dogs) due to double glazing not being installed in the corner window... but all together a nice stay.

First night ever in South America and terribly jet lagged. Clean and comfortable room and brilliant double glazing so our room is peaceful. Only the floorboards are noisy! The staff are very helpful and have organised an early breakfast and taxi for us, as well as details of the time change tonight. They seem to communicate well with each other as all staff are aware of our needs. Good recommendations for walks and food - we really enjoyed La Hacienda steakhouse which is on the other side of the embassy next door. We plan to stay at this hostal on our way home.

First time in South America and Santiago is the first stop. We chose Hostal Rio Amazonas for its location, the price, and the promise of help for two non-Spanish speakers let loose in a big Latin American city. It was the right choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful, full of restaurant and tourist tips, and ready to make you a coffee or cocktail at any time.
The rooms are bright and airy, and the public spaces comfortable. It is only a short walk across the river (drain?) to Barrio Bellavista, the extremely efficient subway is 250m down the road, and the historic city centre easily accessible. All rooms have private bathrooms, and breakfast is supplied.
I've booked in for another night on my way home in May.

Room Tip: Use the Metro to get around. With a station just up the street you will save time (and your legs) by...

Our high expectations based on reviews were well and truely met - a colourful, interesting and welcoming atmosphere; extremely helpful and friendly staff, a very comfortable room and excellent nights sleep, great breakfast and also a charming shop with quality products. Location is excellent also. We would recommend this hostal to everyone - a Santiago highlight in itself!

We stayed 2 nights in hostal Rio Amazonas, we had chosen the hostal, because we could park our car safely. The hostal is a very friendly, clean and safe place on a great location in Santiago. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms are comfortable, good breakfast, we had a great time here. Nearby is the good and not expensive restaurant la Hacienda.
