Good midrange hotels are few and far between in Santiago, and this small hotel is one of the few. For about the cost of a dinner for two, you get a room that's clean and comfortable. Rooms overlooking the palm-shaded courtyard in back are especially lovely. It's in a funky old house, so no two rooms are alike. See a few before you decide. The location is on a quiet side street, yet dozens of restaurants and bars are steps away. The hotel also has some apartments just across the street, available for a minimum three-day stay.
Basic, slightly aged, but clean and in good condition. Comfortable beds and enough space to move around for the most part.
Splash out for one of the apartments if traveling in a small group or you'd like to be a little bit more independent on the food front.
Basic but clean, some recently renovated, tile floors, amenities included.
Tiled and reasonably welcoming, with a few places to sit.
Close to the Manuel Montt metro station on the red line (linea 1) which will take you both uptown to Las Condes, as well as to other hotspots like downtown Santiago, and close to Bellavista and Lastarria. There is frequent bus service on nearby Providencia but especially at night and after the metro closes, most guests prefer Uber/Cabify or taxis.
Close to the hotel, there is traditional Chilean food in a bistro environment at Liguria (3-minute walk) and also all the seafood you could dream of at El Ancla (5-minute walk). Slightly further afield at the back of a small shopping arcade called Drugstore is brand new 1756 Cocina y Bar (14-minute walk). Down in Bellavista we choose Peumayén (9-minute drive) for ancestral Chilean food or Siete Negronis (11-minute drive). For hearty downtown lunches, don't miss Salvador Cocina y Café (18 minute metro and walk).
Close to the hotel is Liguria (3-minute walk) for Pisco sours and wine, or we recommend going to Patio Bellavista (18-minute metro and walk or 11-minute drive) and trying your luck there Specifically in that same neighborhood we recommend Siete Negronis (11-minute drive) or Krossbar (11-minute drive) for Chilean beer and pub grub. Or head to Sarita Colonia, (13-minute drive) a Peruvian restaurant with quirky furnishings and good mixed drinks, or head to the neighborhood of Lastarria (10-minute drive) and take your pick there. Splurge for an uptown wine experience at La Misión (12-minute drive).
WHY WE LIKE IT
This is a nice, quiet hotel in a good location, with good service at a great price point for Santiago. It is the perfect midrange place to stay for a few days while getting a feel for the city. And their apartments are comfortable and a great option for small groups or for those who prefer to cook at home sometimes.
