I really enjoyed my time at this hotel. I was there for five nights and appreciated the location. It is easy to access great neighborhoods like Providencia and Bellavista, where there are lots of great things to see and do. I walked to these locations fairly easily during the day, but I like walking as a way to take in the sights of the city. Within about a 5km radius (~1 hour on foot), there is a lot to see and do. The area seemed reasonably safe but I cannot say for sure because I tended to take a cab home at night. The location of the hotel meant that a cab ride was quite cheap.
The staff are very friendly and trustworthy (I accidentally left money in the open in my room and it was undisturbed when I came home). I think that the owner is the only person that speaks English. The language barrier was not really a problem because I carried a phrasebook and it is easy to make do when one has to. The place is a little rustic and I like that. If you are looking for a highly sanitized American-style hotel, this is NOT the hotel for you. If you are like me and want to get a taste of local life and are not worried about having things like flat screen TV's or puffy towels, this would be a great hotel. I think that it is a nice and safe place where you can meet interesting people.

Marilu was a wonderful host. When we arrived, she gave us a map, marked all of the places that would be of interest, and then explained how to get to them. She gave wonderful advice on getting established in the city. She is a fantastic resource and we would recommend her B&B to anyone who is visiting Santiago for the first time.
New modern hotel with very friendly and helpful staff.
Excellent free wifi, super fast!
Laundry service was a bonus.
About a 15 minute walk to downtown, situated in a nice safe neighbourhood. Mini-market is about a 10 minute walk away.
My flight out of Santiago was in the evening so the staff allowed me to stay in the restaurant area and use my laptop (with free coffee!!) which was much appreciated!
Would definitely stay here again.... highly recommended!
