I stayed in this hotel for a couple days on a business trip. It is nicely decorated with an destinct south american flair. The rooms were clean and spacious, yet I suggest getting room which is facing the back of the hotel (the highway is quite loud in the ones facing the street). The restaurant is excellent with a nice... More

I just had dinner in there, with friends. The location it's very lovely, finely crafted. But the wait service still be not a lot different than in other Chilean places. They've good wine, but know nothing about it. Really the waiters need to know how-to-be. We (5 pers.) Asked for water and he gave us 2 little plastic bottles... If... More

Rooms were good size and quiet at the back of the hotel. Good was good, wine selection good. No lift. Front of house staff do not speak English and it was difficult to convey what we needed...

No elevator, room was clean but ventilation and shower not working, no bin in room, no power outlets easily accessible, staff did not acknowledge us. On a positive side the breakfast buffet had a good variety. Shame I was not even approached to ask if I wanted coffee.

We were down in Curicó for birding there and points south. Had seen many mixed reviews of hotels in area but this was a little oasis of calm. Seems to be more for business folks than vacationers but we enjoyed it. The restaurant was very good for dinner too with a lovely wine selection. WiFi did not work in my... More

Only stayed here for one evening, but was impressed by all of this Hotel, spotlessly clean rooms, very comfy bed, and very polite and friendly staff made this an enjoyable stay. The hotel is just off the main highway.

Located on the highway, very convenient if that is what you want - you need to drive to go anywhere. Rooms are clean and comfortable but with agreeing furniture. Free wi-fi throughout hotel but I had problems in some areas of my room. Book 'odd numbered' rooms - they face the courtyard and not the highway which could be noisy.... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times on our way north on Ruta 5. Quality of lodging has remained consistently good over the years. There are some signs of age though, some wear in the furniture and slight mould on the shower doors. We always stay at the hotel itself, rather than at the cabins, also located within the... More

Must be my fifth stay here. Rooms are spacious, clean and efficient. Beds are comfortable, wi-fi works great. grounds are attarctive. Restaurant is what I would expect in Santiago, it is truly a 5 star restaurant. Service and food is outstanding! Try the chicken raviolis, you will be very surprised!
