“Nice stay in the centre of the city”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This hotel is very centrally located in Santiago, so you are at wlaking distance of a couple major attractions. Yet it is a quiet place. Very charming, they have Moai (giant statues) from Easter Island in the hotel; not the real ones, so you can actually touch them.
The layout of the building is somewhat strange, lobby on the ground floor and then nothing on the first 6 floors. The restaurant serves really great food, we came in late so went there the first evening, but then went back for the other dinners as well. They also have a nice swimming pool.
Inside the lobby around the restaurant, the building is dark since there is no daylight. The room we had was nice, although some things are getting older and could use a bit of maintenance.

This hotel was a refreshing change from the usual chain hotels. The ambience was quite nice. The hotel was quiet, even though located on a busy street. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Rooms were comfortable. I can't really explain it, but the place just felt "homey". We would stay here again.

My husband and I and our two children stayed here for 3 nights. The beds and pillows were soft, the hotel quiet and the buffet breakfasts excellent. We were particularly impressed by the waiters in the restaurant. They couldn't have done more to help, and answered the questions w had. Well done, guys!

After a long flight from Ushuaia via Buenos Aires, it was very pleasant to arrive to a simple check-in and to relax in the room. The facilities are excellent, the bed king-size and comfortable and the bathroom well-appointed and spacious. The air-conditioner was rather ancient and noisy but was able to be turned off without the room getting hot.
The restaurant lunch was the best meal I had all holiday and the glass of Chilean sauvignon blanc was very generous and delicious. The swimming pool and palmy surrounds was a pleasant surprise in the centre of the city.

Room Tip: Book a room off the main road to avoid noise. A room on the 7th floor gives easy access to the resta...

After our long flight from London it was good to be based here for 3 nights at the start of our
South American Tour. Hotel was well situated for siteseeing,parks and shops. The reception
area was a bit cramped and dark,and there were two lifts up to the bedrooms (always had to
wait as the hotel was busy) Room was comfortable and clean as was the bathroom but dark
as it was facing a lane to the rear of hotel. Dining room was nice and the food excellent. Good
selection of Chilean wines too. Staff very attentive and friendly. Breakfasts again great with a
great selection of everything. We had lunch in the hotel once - very attractive buffet,everything
you could wish for plus super sweets. Didn't have much time to sit at the mini pool but it was
nice to chill there for a short time.

This big hotel has extremely good location with tons of restaurants and stores around. 1 minute walk leads you to the busiest streets in Satiago. The room is spacious and well equipped.Breakfast has good choices and quality is goo. What impressed me most was the service--from the doormen,who were very responsive and helpful to me who doesn't speak a single Spanish word!
Before I went on this trip, I emailed hotel if I could leave my luggage there until picked up after the tour bus late in the afternoon when checked out in the morning. The hotel replied right in the following day with a positive confirmation-very convenient and helpful.
Very good experience and would like to stay there there again if any chances in the future!
