The lovely staff make this boutique hotel stand out. As i found elsewhere in Santiago, there was an unpretentious charm and willingness to help. When we arrived early and our room was not quite ready, they brought us (excellent)coffees as we waited in a lobby that is filled with art books and magazines. Turned out to be a very pleasant rest. The breakfast is huge and varied; you just order off the regular menu of their cafe. The charming servers knew how we liked our coffee by Day 2. Room had straight-on view of Parque Forestal. The pool on the rooftop has a small waterfall and an even better view. Room was very nice, very comfy bed. Shower took a bit of time to get warm, but then the hot water was plentiful. Also, some great web deals recently for weekends, etc.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Call it Ismael 312. Some years ago — never mind how long precisely — having little in the way of design hotels, and nothing particular to interest the restless global nomad, the insular city of Santiago quietly took to the construction of a new crop of contemporary boutique hotels. Among the first fruits of this new wave of hotel construction is Ismael 312, a nine-story contemporary boutique hotel in an easy-on-the-eye modern minimalist style, just off the Parque Forestal in Santiago’s historic city center. Semi-transparent glass-walled bathrooms, flat-screen televisions, full-length windows — it’s clear Ismael 312’s proprietors have been paying attention to the interior-design conventions of the boutique-hotel world. This clean-lined look has quickly become the global standard, instantly rendering a million flowery bedspreads obsolete. Here, if you’re fortunate, you’ve got a view of the park from a private balcony; if not, you can content yourself with the pared-down simplicity of your room’s contemporary design. Don’t expect five-star extravagance — Ismael 312 is little more than a pied-a-terre. In this neighborhood, though, that’s more than enough — you’re surrounded by restaurants and picturesque old streets, not to mention the park with its selection of museums, perfectly placed to circumambulate the city of a dreamy Sabbath afternoon. ... more less
