Great location, near Ricoleta Cemetary and lots of bars / restaurants. If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel in a great neighbourhood, this one is a decent option.
With that said, the rooms themselves smell smoky (not possible to get smoke-free) and had another funky smell, sort of like an old folks home. I didn´t find the rooms particularly clean - the sheets were thin and stained. Our window didn´t close properly and the heating system wasn´t working - but the reception refused to admit there was an issue. Also, our lamp didn´t work and the hotel staff could not devise any solution because it was 10 PM and no maintenance staff was available - apparently they couldn´t find us another lamp or try changing the light bulb!
The internet is very expensive - $14 USD for a limited use over 12 hours. I felt like I was in a third world country! What hotel doesn´t have free internet (or at least cheap unlimited internet)!
The breakfast buffet was reasonable - pretty typical for South America. It ends early though, at 10 AM.
