On a recent quadruple-swing through Santiago, we stayed at the Hotel Orly twice, and at two other Santiago hotels.The two others were of allegedly "higher star" class than the Orly. The Orly experience blew away the other two hotels. For our two Orly stays, one room was large, the other room was super large, both with great open views outside. I gather that no two rooms are the same, so it may be the luck of the draw. The rooms are in a bit of a rabbit warren, some on elevator-served floors, others you walk up an additional staircase. It reminded me of a small, "characterful" Parisian hotel (with more helpful staff!). The central Santiago location is great, close to the metro (Santiago has a very convenient metro system).
OK, there may be the occasional paint chip and/or patch of threadbare carpet, but overall the rooms were immaculate, the in-room amenities were welcomed (soaps, shampoos, free bottles of mineral water), and the sleep was restful. The breakfasts had good variety and great coffee (something that not all Chilean establishments seem to understand, I guess because Chile grows no coffee itself). Upon entry into the hotel, the tiny front desk and the teeny (2-person) elevator may be a bit off-putting - but look beyond that, and you will have a great experience. All the modern, cookie-cutter hotels you will have forgotten in a fortnight - the Hotel Orly you will remember for years.
