After seeing articles on that new boutique hotel, I decided to give it a shot since I go to Santiago twice a year for business.
I ordered a taxi transfer from them at a cost of $40.00. Upon arrival, I was a little put off by the driver who insistingly asked for a tip.
The entrance of the hotel is discrete and the check-in area very small. The attendant checked me in efficiently although a bit cold and stiff. The room I was assigned appeared to have everything a travel may need except for the space. To be able to open my suitcase, I had to put it on top of the bed. To be able to upgrade to a large room I had to pay an extra $60.00. I thought it was not worth it for just one night.
Being in that room felt like i was staying in someone's big house feeling somehow trapped.
Wi-fi was free but unfortunately not too reliable since it came and go.
The backyard with the small pool was very charming.
The breakfast area was in a dining room overlooking the beautiful backyard. The buffet offered was just regular and the service was a bit cold. it felt like the waiter would rather do something else with his time.
To summarize, that place would be great for a couple getaway booking a suite. Not for a solo traveler who could find that place away from home a little depressing just like I did. The staff didn't help.
