I just can't say enough good things about this establishment. If you are flying into the Santiago airport late, and want to get anywhere by bus the next day this is the place to be as it is located 2 blocks from the Metro and CaribTour stations.
The accommodations are far above what one would expect at this price point. The bed mattress quality and the quality of the linens and pillows are what one would find in a 5 star hotel in the US, not in the middle of Santiago! Tom and Paulna were excellent hosts in every way, and upon my arrival Paulna treated me to a traditional island breakfast which was much appreciated after a long day of travel. Tom also gave me a small walking tour of the area and map so when I return I will navigate the area like a native. Thanks again!
