We were on our way to Torres Del Paine for some serious trekking. Needed a place to stay in Punta Arenas and really didn't want a hostel. Took a chance with Ilaia ... and I'm so glad we did. It's a secret gem. Family designed and run. It's gorgeous and very friendly. Breakfast with freshly squeezed juice, coffee/tea, jams, honey, yogurts, breads ... everything perfect. Room we had was very clean, quiet and patagonia style. Nice wireless system with a couple of nice laptops for your use. We took one upstairs into the overlook room to skype and see the straits.
Sorry to see this hotel get popular ... 'cause I want to come back and enjoy while it's still a secret.
