This is a newish boutique hotel near the actinomycetes of the Bellavista and Lastarria districts, with great restaurants, museums, shopping, and parks nearby. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely furnished. The staff is young, delightful , and extremely helpful with excellent English language. Breakfast is good and the coffee superb. The lobby has a great collection of art books in Spanish and English. The hotel is ideally located, but ask for a room on the park side. Mine was on the other side and the street noise was a bit much for a light sleeper like myself. Price is very reasonable for the high quality of service, cleanliness, and comfort.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Call it Ismael 312. Some years ago — never mind how long precisely — having little in the way of design hotels, and nothing particular to interest the restless global nomad, the insular city of Santiago quietly took to the construction of a new crop of contemporary boutique hotels. Among the first fruits of this new wave of hotel construction is Ismael 312, a nine-story contemporary boutique hotel in an easy-on-the-eye modern minimalist style, just off the Parque Forestal in Santiago’s historic city center. Semi-transparent glass-walled bathrooms, flat-screen televisions, full-length windows — it’s clear Ismael 312’s proprietors have been paying attention to the interior-design conventions of the boutique-hotel world. This clean-lined look has quickly become the global standard, instantly rendering a million flowery bedspreads obsolete. Here, if you’re fortunate, you’ve got a view of the park from a private balcony; if not, you can content yourself with the pared-down simplicity of your room’s contemporary design. Don’t expect five-star extravagance — Ismael 312 is little more than a pied-a-terre. In this neighborhood, though, that’s more than enough — you’re surrounded by restaurants and picturesque old streets, not to mention the park with its selection of museums, perfectly placed to circumambulate the city of a dreamy Sabbath afternoon. ... more less
