Great location
I picked this hotel for the location. It is just a couple of minutes walk to the Metro (which by the way is a fantastic way to get around Santiago). There are many museums and tons of shopping in the area. It’s right in he heart of “old” downtown. During the day, it’s very busy with people. I was told it’s safe during the day, but be cautious at night. I did venture out in the evening and didn’t feel unsafe, but it’s always good to be a safe traveler and don’t carry more than you need and don’t wear expensive jewelry, etc. With lots to see downtown and easy access to the Metro to go see places like the zoo, San Cristóbal hill, the Tower and the Market, this hotel was in a great location. The breakfast was ok, but was the same every day with no variety. The pool area is nice. Sadly, no hot tub to soak in after a long day walking. The staff was friendly and helpful. All of the front desk staff spoke fluent English.

A decent hotel in Santiago.
This hotel is quite well located in walking distance to many local attractions. The room I had was showing signs of wear and tear but they seemed to also be in the process of renovating rooms around me. One of the housekeeping team was a bit invasive - asking why I had the do not disturb sign on my door and why she couldn't come into clean. This happened twice and she was not happy that she could not clean the room! But the room had what I needed although the mini bar fridge was not great at keeping things cool. The wifi worked really well though. The bathroom was small and the shower height not ideal for a taller person but overall my stay was pretty good. Breakfast was nice and the onsite restaurant served good food just a little overpriced. The price of the hotel is quite a bit - there are better 4 star hotels around but perhaps not for that price - overall the hotel didn't seem to live up to 4* for me.
