We arrived from Patagonia Nat'l Park after a long bus ride across flat dry plains of this region. The hotel was a delightful respite of European aesthetic; an historic property once owned by Sr. Nogueira from the days before the Panama Canal when Punta Arenas was the primary international shipping port between the east and west. The elegant mansion is right on the square where there was a festival going on while we were there. We walked all over amidst busy, active local scene. We found every type of restaurant and a large super market!
Our room was elegant with tall windows that let in the steady breeze; the staff most helpful. Our laundry from days of trekking was nicely done, back in 24 hours. Many guests were en route to or from Antarctica - all nationalities. Breakfast is a feast of sweets and muffins and fruit - which may or may not be your style, so ask for anything you'd like from the kitchen.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in front of the main square, Hotel Jose Nogueira is the first and only boutique hotel in Punta Arenas, main entrance city to the world known Torres del Paine National Park and the closest city to the Chilean Antarctic Peninsula. Originally the building hosted the home of Mr. Jose Nogueira and his wife, Sara Braun. He gathered a great fortune during the second half of the XIX century. In 1890, he ordered the construction of a splendid mansion in the middle of the center of the city, which, with the passing of time, transformed into one of the symbols of Punta Arenas. The building was declared National Monument is 1982 and 10 years later, it became a small and exclusive hotel. Hotel Jose Nogueira has 22 rooms (17 standard and 5 suites). Our guests are welcome to use the on-site business centre or have a drink at the Shackleton Bar, that owns his name to the honorable voyage realized in the year 1916 by the expeditionary Sir Ernest Shackleton. ... more less
