“Great Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2013

We were greeted warmly from the second we arrived. Great little hotel in the Vitacura district which is close to restaurants and it's quite. Beautiful little garden area is very relaxing. Very good food and the hotel itself is lovely. Great value as well. I'm very happy with my stay and will recommend.

I frequently stay here when I'm in Chile on business. It's on Vitacura and reasonably well sited, though downtown Santiago (Santa Lucia, Alameda, the Mercado Central etc) are way too far to walk.

Furnishings in the rooms and out are relatively spartan, but the hotel is clean, comfortable, the staff are very friendly and the food is rather good. Breakfasts are OK: juices, cereals, cold meat and plastic cheese, nice cakes and biscuits and very good coffee (hard to find in Chile, for some reason).

There's a small swimming pool in the garden, which is most welcome, and the garden itself is charming. Nice terrace to sit in, as well.

There's damn all else where it is, though, except for the large Parc' Arauco shopping centre. There's a Tip Y Tap restaurant a few hundred yards away (OK), a rather good parillada restaurant on the same side of the road before you get to the Tip Y Tap, and a couple of sushi places I've not tried. Plus a couple of take-aways. And a good bar on the other side of the road, more or less opposite the parillada place. Otherwise, it's all car showrooms.

But as a base to explore Santiago, it's way cheaper than dopwntown and it is, definitely a nice place. Free wifi, good laundry service. I must have stayed there half a dozen times.

The pictures look better than the real deal. the pool/garden area is very charming, the people are mostly friendly. Just a bit worn around the edges. The location is very good. The price is much lower than other area hotels. I sent my mother in law and her sister there because the reviews looked pretty good. They only needed one night. If it had been longer, I may have changed.

Very quick and friendly check in, comfortable modern rooms, everything clean. If traveling with kids in summer, the garden with swimming pool is a great alternative to simply stay at the hotel and relax. The garden can also be used as a happy hour point. Wireless in all floors, location is good, near Jumbo Supermarket and Parque Arauco Shopping Mall (both 5 to 10 Minutes walking). We stayed in a room at the third floor, with a great view to the Cordillera de Los Andes (ask for room number 303). Breakfast, Parking and wireless included in the room rates.

For the last 7 years we have stayed at this family run hotel in the fashionable Vitacura District. With 35 rooms its not really a boutique hotel and is really very pleasant change from chain hotels. It has a good restaurant, not fancy, with a modest selection of well-prepared food. All the rooms are off the busy avenue, so street noise is almost nil. All rooms allow you to open the windows to enjoy the chirping of the morning birds and to take in the fresh cool air, well at least spring through fall. There's a small swimming pool with lounge chairs and bar service. What has made this hotel a little treasure for us the staff. With a few exceptions it has remained the same for the 7 years we have visiting Santiago. We get big smiles and big hugs from our staff "friends".

Room Tip: As we travel with our dog, a Lab, we prefer rooms in the annex.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 days and were very happy with the the location, cleanliness, and overall service. We enjoyed evening 2 meals at the hotel which were of an excellent standard. The Breakfast was okay.
We walked to the local shopping centre 15 min walk, and also to a few quite local ones but caught a train in to Central Santiago. It was at least 2 miles though to the nearest station.
The underground in Santiago is very cheap and easy to use if you want to get around.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful and we would not hesitate in returning to this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the pool area, this was fine but if people are using the garden very late...
