We decided to stay here on the back of TA recommendations and were not disappointed. The hotel is situated in a quiet area, but within 10 minutes walk of the Metro which in Santiago is great for getting you around this big Metropolis. There are a few restaurants nearby and we tried the Indian and Peruvian which were recommended by the hotel and very good. On Sundays there is only one bar open in the vicinity, but the hotel are happy for you to order food in which they will help with. There is a 24 hour coffee bar available which also had nice home made sandwiches and cake. Breakfast is simple, but freshly made eggs or pancakes were a very nice touch.
The only thing I find about these boutique hotels in South America is that invariably they are converted family homes and being a light sleeper I tend to hear most noises and if you are the same then bear this in mind.
Our room was comfortable and we were given a very useful booklet setting out the Eco style of the hotel and what to be aware of.
However, what sets this apart is the excellent reception desk staff, who cannot do enough for you and were brilliant in arranging all of our requirements whilst we were in Santiago, speaking as a minimum Spanish and English. Like other fellow travelers would certainly recommend.
