The huge apartment complex is very well situated close to the metro station "Bellas Artes" in the correspondent "super in" district. There is a supermarket (Lider) right outside the building and many nice coffee houses and one of the most famous restaurants (Interludio) in Santiago just around the corner. That is it about the good things of this aparthotel.

The security of the building is as useless as matches on the moon. If they are not chatting with colleagues they ask you to give them all your personal information (I was wondering if they will ask me for my size of shoe next) and forget it literally 5 minutes after that just to ask you again. You will be asked to wait for a staff of the aparthotel to pick you up downstairs. The person was not only slow on the uptake but also rather rude. Do not expect any sympathy for arriving back in Santiago after many hours of driving or a really long flight. The apartment was dirty, small, and noisy - surrounded by permanent residents. All of that was by far not the worst because it is hard to find the right words for the bathroom. The ceiling was black of mould and the metal appliances rusted. There was a toxic smell in the air caused by thousands of spores which led to immediate dyspnoea and tussive irritation. I had to remove a dead cockroach which was smashed on the floor and all wooden parts were swollen which made it hard to close the doors.

I will never stay there again and would suggest everyone to stay far away from this place.

Room Tip: You should rather sleep on the sidewalk than staying in room 717!

This serviced apartment is for someone looking for a cheap place to stay in Santiago with a little bit more privacy than you would find in a hostel. It is located near the metro and there are good restaurants nearby. It is a little bit noise, there are too many apartments. The area close to the Plaza del Armas is very commercial, there is nothing there at night or early in the morning. There are no restaurants in the apartment but you can prepare light meals in the room. There is a super market downstairs. Internet connection is free and good.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise from the streets.

My husband and I rented an apartment for a week. It is a lovely nice small apartment for 2, it has a sofa bed in the living room but is better for just 2 persons and maybe a baby, not more. The apartment had a small kitchen and living room, a bed room and a nice size bathroom. The apartment has Small TV, with Wi-Fi and cable. In reference to the cable it was out of service went we got to the apartment, we call for assistance and immediate the cable was installed. Every day they came in and clean the apartment except on Sunday, this was the one small problem because they did not provide us with an extra set of towels for Sunday. The apartment is located inside a big apartment building, with real good security. At the same time it is side by side to a big grocery store, it with you can find everything including a hot homemade bread all day long.
The location was excellent; it was near everything in the city for example, Cerro Santa Lucia Hill, Santa Lucia Craft Market, Main Square of Santiago, The Presidential Palace. It is about 5 minute in taxi to Barrio Bellavista, also one to 3 block to ( a nice place to drink an eat, but is small, it may look like danger getting there but is not) . In the area you can find all types of restaurants from cheap one , hamburger just in front of it, and there is a medium price Indian restaurant ( not open un Sunday , that is why we didn’t try it” . It also has just in front of the apartment a medium price type Peruvian restaurant, in which you can eat a real good “ lomo saltado- red meat with potatoes with species “ “ aji de gallina- this one is made of small pieces of chicken with a yellow pepper” and the typical “ceville- which is a fish cook in lime with species and onion”
The only thing that it may look strange for new travelers to South America, is that the area around the apartment, is not sparking and paint, and at night is a little dark, but is not danger at all, it is like that because is near what is call the old city.

I stayed here for two nights and what attracted me was the location in the centre of Santiago at an affordable US$70 per night. Upon arrival I was completely disorientated and had to request the security guards for assistance. They told me to wait outside until someone comes to fetch me (Note: I was dead tired after more than 24 hours' travelling). Eventually a staff member arrived and I had to follow him (with all my luggage) to the 8th floor where the reception is in a pokey little office. He explained to me that I had to settle the full amount upfront - which I was forced to do as at that time of the night I had no alternative. While in discussion with the assistant, his bossy female colleague brashly started yelling all sorts of insulting remarks from the back - what a terrible way to start a holiday! Best was to ignore her and settle the account. I then had to drag myself and my luggage to the apartment, which was located in a different block.

The apartment itself was not as glamourous as it had appeared on the photos, and it needed a bit of cleaning. The bathroom had no window and it felt a bit stifling. The apartment overlooks a building site - nothing pleasing about it. Some of the apartments are occupied by people living there, so it is extremely noisy all the time (e.g. elevator doors opening and closing constantly, loud footsteps etc.) At night the area is noisy, so forget about a good night's rest! Its best aspect is the price and the free WiFi, but in retrospect I would have gladly paid a bit more for a more decent setup. The worst was the reception, and that for me is good enough reason not to recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: All of the apartments are similar - be careful not to be fooled by the use of qualifiers such as &qu...

We stayed here for 5 nights for US$59 per night, which is a reasonable price for a whole apartment in this city. We were able to check in at 5am with no problem as their reception is manned 24 hours.

The apartment is great but only has basic kitchen equipment: 2 plates, bowls, glasses etc. and only 1 knife and no can opener. The street noise can be noisy with traffic during the day. Location is fantastic, really central and close to lots of things worth seeing. Wifi and Ethernet Internet are available as there is a dedicated modem in the apartment. On the whole, it's a good choice.
