Hotel BambuLodge
Ranked #16 of 54 Pucon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

Great setting, good view, and an excellent host! Knowledgeable and helpful. And probably the cleanest place in chile. (7 minute drive out of town.) would definitely go back again and recommend it to anybody who has his own weels (or 5 luca for a cab drive).

Stayed: February 2014, travelled as a couple

All the positive reviews of Bambu are right on. The location is lovely, the accommodations are so comfortable, views are gorgeous (especially from the 2nd fl rooms), and the hosts have unlimited time and patience to assist their guests. Stay here for peace, beauty, delicious breakfast, comfort, and great company. Merci, Guillaume, Beatriz, and Gaspard.

Stayed at Bambu for 4 nights (December, 2013) --- I cannot say enough great things about the hostel and Guillaume (the owner). The setting is serene and peaceful with a view of volcan Villarica and Villarica lake (depending on which side of the house you are located); Guillaume spent much time giving us suggestions on places to day hike and provided maps to borrow for our trips. Breakfast was provided every morning complete with home-baked bread by Guillaume along with home-made jam (fig and raspberry, maybe); also included was really good coffee. There is a common area kitchen with stove, refridg, sink etc. to store goods. At night, you can see every star in the sky-coming from a large city, I really appreciate this--the air smells clean and the sky is clear. I'll stay here again if I'm down that way again.

We stayed in pucon for the first nights in Chile. Bambu lodge was exactly the right place to be. A wonderful location close to the city but away from the crowds, a really nice and clean hostel, and a very helpfunctie host Guillaume.

We spent 2 nights at lodge at the end of November.
The lodge is an easy 5-7 minute drive to downtown Pucon. Its paved all the way except for a few hundred meters from the highway. If you have a regular sedan, take it easy on this stretch. The driveway has some high centers and you could bottom out if you go too fast. The turnoff from the highway is marked but its a small sign..watch for a large closed restuarant on the right side of the highway. The turnoff is to the left just past the closed restuarant.
We had a room on the ground floor..huge window which made it very bright but lake view is limited due to vegatation..likely better from 2nd floor. Room was large with ample storage space. Good sized bathroom with lots of hot water and all very clean. Nice outside deck are.
Breakfast is continental...juice, home made bread and jams, yogurt, ham, tea and coffee..some local cheese would have been nice but as is it was it was ample for us.
Guillaume is very knowledgeable of area, what to see , where to eat and where to buy things..very personable and outgoing.
A couple of items..they dont take credit cards..cash only. There is no Tv ( no loss there), nor do they have internet access. Most cafes and bars in Pucon have free wifi and that is the best way to check email etc.
We thoroughly enjoyed the stay..very quiet and restful yet close to all the amenities of Pucon. Reasonably priced, it is an excellent value for money...highly recommended and would defnitely stay there again

Room Tip: A better view of the lake and valley from a second floor room

We had 4 nights at Bambu Lodge in low season, end of June. Guillaume was great from the moment we first inquired, he came back early from his family holiday so we could stay. Very much appreciated. He greeted us warmly and showed us around the beautiful lodge. We stayed on the ground floor with a massive window overlooking the gardens and view towards Pucon.

This is THE place to stay if you want to be far away from the town that you are never bothered by anyone, but still close enough to drop in for dinner or to shop.

Guillaume was great at recommending places to eat or visit, his tip for the best hot springs is a guaranteed winner!
Thank you for having us, we would recommend this to everyone who enjoys a peaceful and relaxing stay in a natural setting.

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.
