We had read many reviews about this hotel, so I think our expectations were well-established by the time we arrived. This included knowing that our room would most likely be small, which it was. It was up against the kitchen downstairs, and we managed to cram both of our 3 weeks’ worth of luggage at the foot of the bed. To get to the other side, all we had to do was bounce over it, no biggie. The wardrobe did come with a small safe. Our bathroom received natural lighting, and everything was just very clean with little details taken care of.
Our arrival was early in the morning, so we weren’t allowed to check-in just yet. However, the front desk guy welcomed us to store our luggage in the closet by his desk and use the guest bathroom before showing us where to walk around the city via a small map. The location is great- just a short walk from the mainstreet of Providencia, and the hotel is surrounded by some great eats (hit up Aqui Esta Coco for some great seafood!).
Loved the dining area and the patio – very cute! Two mornings of breakfast here were decent with lots of fruit and carb options (toasts, muffins, crepes, pastries), and it certainly kept us fueled on our long walks through Santiago (10 miles the first day, 13 miles the second) before lunch.
The staff was overall very friendly. The daytime employees had very good English. However, we had to checkout at 4AM and have a driver bring us to the airport, and the girl that morning didn’t speak or understand a bit of English. My Spanish that early in the morning wasn’t working very well, but she was very sympathetic and helpful, and somehow we managed to communicate.
The only surprise negative was the weak/spotty WiFi.
