Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Vegas

Londres 49, Santiago, Santiago Metropolitan, 8330095, Chile See on Map

This colonial-style building, adorned with a bullet-shaped turret, sits in the heart of the charming Barrio París-Londres. Rooms here are spacious and filled with comfortable modern furnishings. All have plenty of windows—ask for one of the two double rooms with a sitting room inside the turret, for a view of gently curving Calle Londres. The hotel also rents apartments, for a maximum of three people and minimum of three nights, in a newer nearby building.


Aging but comfortable, with lots of light and older style wooden bed and night tables, and some paneled walls, with a coffered ceiling. Some have leaded glass windows.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Wooden floors and old construction makes for creaky stairs. Consider earplugs if you are a light sleeper.


Clean and tidy, no surprises, all have bathtubs.


In a central area with a single sectional couch with extra chairs, with a coffee table, under a chandelier and beside a wooden staircase.


Cocktails available at the onsite bar.


Getting Around

This hotel is very conveniently-located close to the entrance of the Universidad de Chile metro station on the main metro line that goes down to the bus station or up towards tonier Providencia or Las Condes. For later comings and goings, most guests choose Uber/Cabify or a taxi. Many areas of touristic interest are very close to this hotel.


For hearty, Chilean downtown lunches with a modern touch (and a three course set menu with vegetarian options), try Salvador Café & Cocina (10-minute walk), or go a little further to the Mercado Central (18 minute walk) to have a heaving plate of fish or seafood (try Donde Augusto). Classic sandwiches are the order of the day at José Ramón Chopería & Sanguchería (16-minute walk), or try someplace in Lastarria (16 minute walk) like trendy Chipe Libre (16-minute walk) for Pisco flights and cocktails and food from the north of Chile and south of Peru. Or go farther to Patio Bellavista (12-minute drive) where there are many restaurants to choose from (continue out the east exit on Constitución to hunt further). For a very quirky environment and good eats and drinks, walk over to La Diana (11-minute walk).


For a downtown atmosphere that can get rowdy, but has an unusually good beer selection for the area, try the El Mesón Beer Garden (12-minute walk) on the pedestrian street of Bulnes. Or head further into downtown to Bar Nacional 3 (7-minute walk) for an authentic Chilean experience. If you like a beer-garden atmosphere, think about heading to Jardín Mallinkrodt (12-minute drive) in Bellavista for informal, alfresco dining. Or if wine is more your thing, head to the very popular Bocanáriz (16-minute walk) wine bar. Or head to Bar Berri, (17-minute walk), which on weekends opens their very quirky second floor with ornate furnishings. For more upscale drink options, try a nightcap at the Singular Hotel, (19-minute walk), either in their lobby bar or on the rooftop.


The chance to spend the night in one of the very few remaining secret cobblestoned neighborhoods in Santiago would be enough. These turn of the 20th century constructions have stood the test of time, and remind many visitors of similar alleyways in Europe. It's also clean, easy to get to from the airport, conveniently located to many downtown attractions, and is reasonably priced.
