Old fashioned but very clean rooms, helpful staff and excellent restaurant. This hotel is located in the heart of Punta Arenas.

After motorcycling 7,000km with my girlfriend though South America we checked into the hotel with reasonable expectations. At the beginning of the trip we had sent a package to the hotel with our names on it (we had already reserved our room) but it turned out the hotel just turned the package away. I have done this before at other hotels around the world and never had this experience - you would think that they would check our names in the computer!

Regardless the bar and restaurant are beautiful. The food was excellent and well priced and diverse - even more so considering how remote this city is in the world. It was the first real asian food we had seen in ages, let alone Mexican food and various others. We really enjoyed spending time in the bar / restaurant.

The rooms on the other hand were very dated and small - felt like a much cheaper hotel. We were facing the park on the 7th floor and it was very noisy if the window was open.

The business center was just off the lobby and whenever I needed to get onto the Internet it was filled with kids and teenagers playing on their facebook accounts. It was almost impossible to get time on a computer. They need to create a seperate area for business users and one for kids to play on. This was very annoying.

All in all it was a nice experience. The staff were helpful and their english was amazing. If they can upgrade their rooms and business centre I would give this hotel five stars next time. With that said it is probably your best option when spending time in Punta Arenas.

Hotel rooms were fine, although they were too warm for January, and given the high winds in Punta Arenas, it is not possible to leave windows open.
Front desk staff very helpful, but restaurant service was poor. We ordered a number of dishes that were unavailable and the serving staff were unhelpful.

We had one night in Punta Arenas before flying home and the Cabo de Hornos ticked all the boxes - stylish reception with friendly staff, decent business-style room on 4th floor with large bathroom, good bar and restaurant and right in the middle of town. And at just over $100 a night including a large buffet breakfast, it's very good value for money.

After researching a long time of different hotels in Punta Arenas, finally decided on this one.. When we arrived, the lobby itself was nice enough and looked like it was recently revenovated.. The staff at the front desk and bellman were all very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, that's where the good parts ended.. The room itself was tiny and was not very clean. There were a few mosquitoes in the bathroom, and the wardrobes were dusty and dirty.. The restaurant staff were friendly enough, but the food was pretty substandard even for hotel food... From our room window, we saw the new Dreams Hotel and decided to check it out... That was much more modern and the standard room sizes were twice as large as the Cabo de Hornos, and for the same amount, we decided to switch over.. Glad we did! Would not return to Cabo de Hornos even if the room were free!

Overall excellent, comfortable hotel with extremely friendly, helpful staff. We had a problem with an upcoming penguin tour scheduled for early the next morning, and a front desk staffer immediately helped, with excellent follow-up. The room and bath were very clean, the breakfast buffet was pretty good, and the wireless internet worked well.
The only problems were:
1. Our room had a beautiful view of the plaza -- with very loud traffic noise (many cars without mufflers), plus shouting and singing, lasting well past midnight. Even guests with rooms facing the Straits of Magellan (request one of these) could hear the noise, but it was not as bad.
2. In November (early spring), with outside temperatures in the 40s Farenheit and the heat off, the room was still hot. Guests on other floors reported the same problem. We were left with a choice between an uncomfortably hot room and an open window with even worse street noise.

We stayed here for only one night, and didn't arrive until around midnight because our flight arrived so late at night. Check in was quick, and our bags were brought to the room for us immediately. We had a double room that overlooked the Strait on the 6th floor. The room was clean, comfortable, and reasonable in size considering we had been traveling for 2 weeks and had quite a bit of luggage. A great buffet breakfast was included, and the dining area and lobby is a bit modern, yet very cozy. It felt like a comfortable lodge with great decor. We spent some time the next day relaxing in the lounge/bar area reading by the fire. This was a stop on our way to the Via Australis cruise. Free internet access in the lobby was a plus. Good location, although we didn't get out much due to the weather that day.
