After my great stay in Buenos Aires, and a great time cruising around the horn, we came to stay here while in Santiago for a few days. It was a great choice for many reasons.
The price was low. Less than 1/5 of the price of a less convienent room at the Sheraton Convention Center.
The room, small, but clean.
The location great; near the subway, across from a plaza with outdoor dining, down the street from shopping malls and the riverfront art park.
The staff had some trouble with English, but they tried hard to satisfy.
Rooms X2 and X3 face the inside of the block, X4 the south, and x1 the main street. I was in 73. The view was OK, the mood quiet.
Breakfast was good, internet free, workout room nice.
The hot water thing is no big deal as long as you know it ahead of time and split up your showers. We did one before breakfast, one after. Plenty of hot water for a 20 minute shower and shave.
Kitchen a nice touch, saved on meals by going over one block to the grocery and buying lunch stuff for our days out. But we felt called to the outdoor dining in the area for dinners, desserts, coffees, and people watching.
We have never felt as safe in a city this large in the US or Europe as we did in walking this area. The transport from/to the airport was swift and inexpensive. A great stay and end to a great trip.
My only problem was that I am 6'3" and the clearance in the shower was 6'3 1/2". A little cramped for an American, but Chileanos are on average 6 to 8 inches shorter than I, and most people wouldn't even notice.
