The hotel is in an area that is far more car-friendly than bus or metro-friendly, and for that reason, most guests here will take Uber/Cabify/taxis around the city, though the large mall of Parque Arauco with restaurants, shopping and outdoor plazas is just a six-minute walk away.
Though there are several good restaurants in the nearby Parque Arauco mall (6-minute walk), many of them are chains. A notable exception is Carlo Cocina Mercado in the "lujo" section. They offer a small plate buffet of gourmet preparations of local Chilean food, paid by the plate. Gourmands will want to head to award-winning, innovative Boragó (7-minute drive), or on the same street (Nueva Costanera), try Rubiyat (8-minute drive) or La Mar (Peruvian and ceviche). Traditionalists should head to Las Cabras (14-minute drive) near Costanera Center, and we also recommend trying a meal at Peumayén (8-minute drive in Bellavista) where local food is cooked in the ancestral traditions.
Off-site bars will require a short drive, and we recommend Tramonto at the NOI hotel (9-minute drive), a trip down to Bellavista for your choice of bars including Azotea Matilde (13-minute drive), something in Lastarria like Bocanáriz, the country's first wine bar, or for al fresco dining and drinks anytime post lunch a trip to Mestizo (7-minute drive) in Parque Bicentenario. Or try Les Dix Vins (7-minute drive) for French wine and food in tony Vitacura.
