Hotel BambuLodge
Ranked #15 of 56 Pucon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Bambu Lodge is a great place to stay. We were there for eight nights at the end of January and each one was a joy.

It's an attractive, white clapperboard-style house in an imposing setting, overlooked by Volcan Villarica and overlooking the valley below. The interior design reflects something of Guillaume's spell in Morocco in its beautifully and tastefully appointed bedrooms and public areas. The bedrooms are large and light with great views. Breakfast is a generous array of breads, jams and meats/cheeses. The short car trip into Pucon is a piece of cake.

Above all, Guillaume is an intelligent, well informed and engaging host who welcomed us enthusiastically, gave us spot-on advice and was happy to discuss life in Chile - and a few other countries besides. We met Beatriz only occasionally, the demands of looking after a two month old first born being pressing. They're a charming family - and live in the adjoining house so your beauty sleep won't be disturbed!

We would certainly return to Bambu Lodge should we find ourselves in Chile in the future. Apologies for the late entry - only just returned from a long trip.

Room Tip: They're all great. We were on the first floor.

Bambu Lodge is a real gem!! & Guillaume is the whole mine!! This place is wonderfully maintained, spotless & beautifully decorated with views to die for. A panorama greeted us every morning as we awoke followed by a sumptious breakfast in the communal dining room downstairs & then a second coffee on the balcony. Guillaume would join us & with map in hand would recommend places to go & experience form the Termas ( hot spring) to the volcanic lake to the special cake shop to Pucon eateries!!. Everything that has been stated by previous guests is absolutely true. We would recommend Bambu Lodge to anyone wishing to have the Pucon experience & Guillaume only adds to this. Thank you Guillaume. Best wishes to your wife & baby.

My husband and I spent four nights here in late November (actually over Thanksgiving in the US). I was initially reluctant to book it given it is not downtown, but it exceeded all expectations. The location is approximately 5 minutes from Pucon and very easy to navigate. It was extremely peaceful with amazing views of the lake and volcano. The facilities were inviting with comfortable beds, a guest kitchen, large porch, and a living room with fireplace. Breakfast each morning was filling, and we were able to have it earlier or later based on our plans for the day.

Guillaume was an excellent host, and he was very knowledgeable about local restaurants, outfitters, thermal baths, hiking, etc. We had a general idea of what we wanted to do, and he gave us recommendations each day. He also provided high quality maps of the area. We made great use of our rental car by exploring outside of Pucon.

Out of this two+ week trip with five different accommodations (mix of apartments, B&B, and hotels), this was by far our favorite. We very much hope to return soon and would highly recommend this B&B.

Bambu Lodge made our holiday in Pucon, Chile. Our stay at Guillaume's B & B was perfect. My husband and I spent 3 nights there the first week of March. Guillaume took the time to visit with us and answer our questions on how to enjoy the area. We took his suggestions on where to hike, which thermal springs to visit and which restaurants to dine at. Every place we went to was the best choice for us. Guillaume's impeccable taste in decor in the lodge is lovely. The lodge is spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent. Access to the guests' kitchen is a big bonus. We can't say enough about our wonderful stay. Thank you Guillaume for sharing yourself, and the time you took with us. We appreciated your hospitality very much.

We spent 2 nights at Bambu Lodge and everything about it was excellent: Beautiful room with amazing panoramic window, delicious breakfast and great host. Guillaume was great to chat to and his tips on the area were very helpful. Anyone who wants to stay away from the crowds in Pucon would love staying here.

Guillermo's nice chats and his wonderful taste regarding location & decoration make Bambu an amazing place to either rest or spend exciting time in Pucón. Outstanding breakfast including home made bread, fresh juice and real coffee (!).
