Within easy walking distance of the funicular to San Cristobal hill and La Chascona Casa Museo Santiago, the home the famous poet Pablo Neruda built for his mistress Mathilde, this hotel is definitely worth considering as your Santiago base. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff friendly and helpful. The bathroom was well appointed, with a fantastic hot, powerful shower, a must on my room list. The lack of elevator was not a problem for me. There are many good restaurants in the same street, and the next street. In fact the area is well known for its nightlife.
There were some minor irritations which were probably more noticeable at the end of four weeks in South America. The first one was the need to buy bottled water, there being only 500mls provided in the room. But there were shops nearby. The second was the disinterested breakfast service. The breakfast was included in the room rate, but the restaurant is perhaps a separate operation. There was no menu and after my initial order of fruit, coffee and scrambled eggs (5/10) I had to seek out the attention of the waitress for items such as salt and pepper. I was also served only about 150mls of water. Luckily I knew a nearby cafe where I could get a real desayuno, cafe Aldea Paraiso in Constitution St.
The apartments offered in Bellavista Travel Suites have everything you need to have a pleasant stay. The staff is very friendly and the location is perfect, you are near the Bellavista neighborhood which is full of things to do, especially great restaurants.
Great location if u want to be near to bellavista activities. However very very loud with kids screaming at 8am outside your balcony. They did not supply clean towels or replenish the bath soap throughout stay. Surroundings are run down. But it is an excellent location and serves purpose if u don't plan to spend much time in room.
Staff very helpful regarding tourist attractions and recommendations within the city. Walking distance to restuarants, plaza de armas, fish markets, San Cristobel. Not far from metro if needing to travel further. Excellent modern breakfast courtyard with good selection. All day free espresso coffee, teas, juices, cake and fruit. Nice relaxation areas on each floor. Good wifi.
We stayed at Hotel Loreto for several days at the start of a long trip across three South American countries. It is built in what was once a grand house. The property was damaged severely in the major earthquakes of a few years ago. The interior was completely rebuilt. It is not a luxury property, nor is it spartan economy accommodations. What it is today is clean and simple. The location is walking distance from many places we wanted to go and the staff could not have been friendlier.
Bellavista Apartments are actually in a student multi level building next to university in secure complex.
The room have separate bedroom bathroom , living room and kitchen. Also balconies in both rooms
The location is terrific with many bars and restaurants within few minutes walking. About a 10 minute walk to subway.
