“Great hotel, breathtaking view”
Reviewed 27 February 2010

I stayed at this hotel with my parents and my brother. While my parents were at a double bed room me and my brother stayed at a twin bed room, and I have to say, even if you’re with your spouse you should really get the twin bed room. The room is huge and has two queen beds. Make sure you get a room that faces the front of the hotel, the view from the mountains is beautiful.
The restaurant and the staff were also great.
The only thing I would recommend is that you rent a car because the best attractions stay a little far away from the hotel.

We stayed at Hotel Kennedy for several days in February 2010. Sky Airline offers a half-price rate for rooms. Hotel is spotlessly clean, staff very professional and helpful, lobby elegant. Our room was spacious and very clean, with a very comfortable king-sized bed; furnishings and bathroom are somewhat dated. In-room safe was difficult to use. Breakfast buffet is plentiful; it is self-service and included in room fee but guests are delicately pressured to leave tip. Hotel website mentions a pool but it's postage-stamp-sized, right in the middle of the bar/restaurant area. Hotel is located in a beautiful residential area, and is in walking distance of Parque Arauco, an ultra-modern shopping center with a multiplex cinema, outdoor cafes, live music. Hotel location is lovely, if a bit of a distance from the metro (subway) and downtown.

Dear guest,

Thanks for your words and for sharing them with the TripAdvisor community. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Regarding our bathrooms, we noted that your stay with us was more than 3 years ago. Since then all our rooms, including bathrooms, have gone thru an extensive renovation process. We are also very proud to announce that now we have a second pool, which is located in our brand new spa and is heated so it can be used all year round.

Regarding leaving tip to our room service staff, it is customary in Chile to tip the waitresses, although is completely optional. Nevertheless we will look into your comment.

Once again thanks for your words and shall your travel plans bring you back to Santiago we hope to see you again.

Best regards,

Andrea Ramírez Vera.

My daughter and I just returned from a 12 day trip to Santiago, Chile. We stayed on and off at this hotel for 6 of the 12 days. The hotel staff treated us with kindness and respect and helped us with our elementary Spanish lessons! Our room had a view of the Andes, the beds were wonderfully comfortable. This hotel is perfectly located for American travelers. There is a shopping mall within a 5 block walk. Just down the street are 4 fantastic restaurants.... we loved the Tippy Tap with it's fine selection of imported beers and Chilean cuisine. The Cucina of Javier serves authentic Spanish cuisine and rivals some of the great restaurants in New York. We are planning a trip next year.
