A wonderfully-located boutique hotel near to both the city centre and to the trendier, younger parts of Santiago. Rooms immaculate if slightly on the small side. The service was impeccable, however, which makes a difference when you’re only staying somewhere for a brief period, as I was. The breakfast was somewhat basic (muesli, fruit and yoghurt), but pleasant. There was also a swimming pool. It’s small, but personable, light and beautifully designed. I was only staying overnight before flying onto Argentina, and I’d definitely recommend it from that perspective, although the EcoHotel is around the same price (albeit slightly farther out of town) and edges it out just in terms of sheer personality.
- 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
