“Not worth its value !”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The house looks nice, its an old historical place, but this also has its inconveniences :
-noisy cracking flour, really thin walls (you can hear you neighbour's snoring)
-not so clean bedrooms with broken tiles in the bathroom (at least in our room)
Staff ok, but not so chatty.
Good points though : buffet breakfast with lot of different things to eat, modern shower and close to city center
Anyway, not worth its high price, they are much nicer other places for a little more money.

The mattresses in our beds were very old and inconfortable. The shower in the bathroom did not work, the employees were not able to repair it. Finally, they gave us - after long discussions - another bathroom to use. The bedroom for this bathroom was unoccupied: why didn't they give us that bedroom (sunny, nice, big, working shower) immediately? Why did they put us in a horrible, dark room, although we had reserved months before?
Breakfast was okay, service there very nice.
We got a paper where to put any complaints and I did so. ;) What was REALLY nice was a nearly immediate answer by e-mail from the hotel that they read my complaints and will work on it.
Therefore I would possibly go there again, it seems that they take their customer serious.

Reviewed February 8, 2009

Even though when we arrived, they didn't have our bookig (seems to be common down that neck of the woods), they were very accommodating and found us a room.

From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but it was very nice inside. It is an old converted mansion. We stayed upstairs in an end room. The room was very spacious, had a tv, large clean bathroom, wardrobe etc all from antique style furniture.

They were very accommodating with our request for an early breakfast too and it was all set up ready for us, as requested at 7.30am.

Because it is an old mansion, things are a bit squeaky. We thought we were making a lot of noise, but never heard anyone else making noise.

Stayed December 2008

I stayed for 2 days in Punta Arenas. Hostal Bustamante (www.hostalbustamante.cl) is near Plaza de Armas and its rooms are bigger than I expected for a hostal. Considerate recepcionists indicate all you need about the town.
