“Hidden gem in Providencia”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We were recommended this beautifully hidden hotel by another couple, and we are truly happy with the recommendation.
We stayed here for two nights before continuing our trip to Valparaiso and what a find. I would go as far as saying that it is a hidden oasis in Santiago.
Although the owners have changed since the last reviews, from my understanding, the service and quality has not dropped in quality.
The staff is wonderful and helpful. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. The garden is extremely peaceful and makes the stay here even more worthwhile (with the Pool, the lounge chairs). After a couple of days of constant sightseeing in Peru and Chile, this is the perfect place to come and relax, unwind, and just enjoy the holidays with a great book, a great wine from Chile, lounging on the chairs.
We highly recommend the hotel to all our friends and family!

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in March and had a great experience! Marie-Josee made everything so relaxing and easy. She had a lot of great recommendations for restaurants and tours in Santiago as well as nice day trips to take. Neither my husband or I spoke much Spanish, but Marie-Josee really helped with the language barrier by making tour and restaurant reservations and arranging for cabs from the hotel and airport. Our room was very nice, comfortable and clean and the breakfast (which we ate on the beautiful back patio) was excellent. Marie Josee even packed a nice breakfast for us to take with us the morning we left since we had to head to the airport so early! The hotel is convenient to visit many neighborhoods in Santiago. We mostly walked, but cabs are very inexpensive when necessary.

As soon as i arrived at Hotel l'Ambassade and was ushered in by
Marie-Josée, one of the 3 siblings running the hotel, I knew that I
had picked the right place. I was made to feel at home straightaway.
The house is stunning and I stayed in total comfort. I stayed in the Loft, a
separate annex of the house, which was nothing but luxurious with
views of the swimming pool and the beautiful patio. The breakfasts
were scrumptious with their own homemade goodies on offer. Nothing was
a bother whether it was discussing where to go or just catching up on
the day's events. When i finally ventured out, it was a short walk to
a nice cafe or a trendy Peruvian restaurant, and it was easy to catch
a taxi for the 5-minute ride into the centre of Providencia. I simply
cannot recommend Hotel l'Ambassade in Providencia highly enough. The
most brilliant hosts make this hotel something special in Santiago.

This house is gorgeous. The rooms are gorgeous. The decor is gorgeous.

Manager Marie Josee made restaurant reservations for me over a tough holiday weekend and made it extremely easy to give instructions to cabdrivers. She also recommended a great Wine Tour as well, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

The pool is good for a dip on a hot day, with towels and lounge chairs provided.

Breakfast served at any time you please between 8 and 11 i think and can be brought to the room although they have a beautiful patio and I enjoyed taking my meal outside. Pastry, a variety of fresh fruits, toasts and yogurt with coffee or tea and water will keep you sated for a long while.

The only drawback here is that you have to take cabs everywhere. This is a good 35 minute walk from the nearest metro (so you'd at least want to take a cab to the metro). If they call you a taxi, it will be 2 to 3 times more than a metered taxi would be but they're off a main thoroughfare and I never had a problem catching one.

After our cruise on Celebrity we stayed at L.Ambassade for 3 nights. It is located in Providencia..easy to get downtown..rooms clean/quiet....the breakfast was very good but would be nice to have a second cup of coffee...Pia was very helpful and it was fantastic to come back after a day of exploring to sit in the back gardens..relax with a very nice bottle of Chilean wine we purchased at the grocery store a few minutes away..taxi's were in abundance ..very reasonable but I would suggest to have a map of the B.& B. as some were not sure how to get to it...a map is always handy to have in your pocket...

Room Tip: The room overlooking the pool was very nice

Our hosts anticipated our needs, and even though it was the off season, everything was top notch without being over the top. One of the most important aspects of this type of hotel is that the personal attention is sincere without forgoing professionalism. The Parolin Family has found the perfect balance.
I recommend their hotel to anyone as either a destination or just passing through Santiago and needing a day or two of self indulgence.

What a find that was! We felt we were at home, except that there was already a family there (three siblings) who were willing to help and make our life comfortable. We never really got to eat the chocolates and grapes in our room. The boutique hotel is located in a very quiet street in Providencia not too far from the Metro (20 mins) and close to a fantastic Peruvian restaurant and another French one in the shopping centre area. An excellent dinner can be arranged in the hotel itself. The rooms are very spacious and the other guests were well hidden (rarely saw them except once at breakfast). The courtyard and pool looked inviting but it was too cold to test them. For a little piece of France in Santiago we highly recommend this hotel.
