Excellent rooms, wonderful view, and great food. The hotel had a casino if you like that. The breakfast was exceptional the coffee was great! The hotel staff was very prompt and friendly it was like they were happy you were there.

We stayed one night on our way to Torres del Paine.
The style of the building, very modern, somehow doesn't match with the city. Once inside, it is very nice. The room was large, modern, and the bed very comfortable. we had a great view of the strait of Magallanes.The bathroom was incredible, and the shower definitely overkill. You may need a degree in engineering to take a shower. And yes, as other reviewers remark, some of the water instead of going to the drain spills on the bathroom floor. There is a very nice top floor bar, heated pool (could be a little warmer), jacuzzi and a well equipped gym. The breakfast was excellent and the staff at the front desk was very helpful. We couldn't connect to Internet in our room and in one minute we had a person in our room installing a wifi router for us that worked perfectly.

Bad points:
- Extremely hot in the room. (Air con is not working with only a small slit of windows to breathe)
(under very strong sun in the summer time !!)
- Food offered in the restaurant are not delicious. (esp. Dinner)

Good points:
- Modern style
- Fully furnished

Room Tip: Sea View is better (in the sense of having cooler room temperature)

Stayed here pre and post Antarctica departure. Beautiful hotel with a gorgeous pool, gym and nice lobby. The rooms I stayed in both times looked out over the ocean - lovely! Best hotel bathroom I have seen in a while - if only I could take that shower home with me! Friendly service and good breakfast in the restaurant every day. Beds were super comfortable. My one complaint was that the wifi didn't seem to work in the rooms. It was fine everywhere else in the hotel though so better than nothing! Would stay again.

Our room was on one of the top floors and looked directly out on the Straight. The room itself was comfortable and fairly large. Our bathroom had a shower and a tub. One of the neatest things about the room was that the bathrooms are glassed with blinds and you could shower while looking out at the water. We only had breakfast in the hotel and that was all right. We ate our other meals in restaurants in town. The bed was comfortable. The best thing about the room was the view!

As much as we enjoyed the room high up, when the bar opened up at about 10 PM, the noise started building and lasted far into the night. It didn't make for a great night's sleep, but it was almost worth it for the view.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floor, if located near the bar, get VERY loud after about 10 PM. I wouldn't g...

Pros:
- Francisco at the front desk was super helpful booking a tour, day of after ours was canceled (w/o notice). I apologize, his name may be Fernando, I may have that wrong but he was really really helpful.
- Large modern rooms.
- Big new bed
- Best hotel gym I've ever been to. Large with lots of new machines
- Free wifi in the lobby

Cons:
- Seemed like the front desk was *always* understaffed. Either there was nobody at the front desk or there was only one person and there was a huge line out the door
- Smells like an ashtray when you walk in.
- The 11th floor bar is 90% smoking with a small area for non smokers
- Shower leaked into the bathroom
- There's an ice bucket in the room, but you can only get ice by calling the restaurant

An OK hotel with a dinky little casino. Only two restaurants - a coffee shop and a full service restaurant. Food was OK in both but not great. Skybar on the top floor has a nice view and the food may be a touch better with some nice beers (Austral was very good.) Rooms are nice but the showers are badly engineered and in several rooms - other people on the trip noticed the same - the water ran out all over the bathroom floor spreading into the rooms.
