“A comfortable, if basic, overnight in Santiago”
A pleasant stay. The man at reception when I arrived at about 11pm was very efficient and helpful. The room was clean and amenities like soap and towels were stocked suffiently. The room had TV and an air conditioner and a clean bathroom and shower. Breakfast was simple but tasty, if somewhat understocked for a buffet. Checkout was quick and easy and the hotel kindly arranged a taxi back to the airport. (P. 15,000 on the way out and P10,000 on the way back (£1=700 pesos) I had some simple Spanish phrases prepared: 'I want to buy some cigarettes', 'I want to go to the airport', 'how much?' etc and a basic knowledge of some numbers, and although the staff did not speak English, we managed to communicate adequately. The hotel is located in a dubious- looking part of Santiago and the neighbourhood is quite dimly- lit, but there were families with children walking about, even at the time I arrived and it was also the case the next moring, and I had no trouble exploring the area for an hour or so before I left. I had the address printed on the Expedia confirmation and the taxi driver had no trouble finding the hotel or navigating to the airport. Certainly a good, cheap option for an overnight stay in Santiago. I had no problems and the hotel suited my needs in terms of price, ammenity and requirements.
“Value for money for a layover in Santiago”
Value for money if you are looking for low cost accommodation close to metro and bus station and on the airport side of the city. We spent two nights a week apart in between flights, arriving on Nov 18 mid afternoon and leaving very early next morning and again on Nov 24 at 2 in the morning after a delayed flight, and leaving the next evening Nov 25 Staff helpful both times, we could leave luggage in a storage room on Nov 25, they arranged taxis. Access to downtown by metro was super easy. Getting to the airport without having to go through the downtown traffic jam was a cinch. For a place to stay there may be more attractive places, for a place to just put your head down at a decent price it was just right.
“Good for overnight transit and coach onward”
This Hotel was Ok for an overnight stay close to the coach station. It's location means that front rooms are very noisy from traffic which commences at about 05.30 hrs and continues all day until late evening. The hotel itself requires refurbishing. It is old and the bedroom in the front which we occupied had not been redecorated for many years. The continental breakfast was excellent and to be highly recommended. The coach station 100mtrs away provides adequate dining at all levels at reasonable prices and baggage can be taken to the coach station by cart from the hotel. In a few minutes. If you are in transit through Santiago overnight and traveling by coach the next day then this hotel is very suitable.
“Not-Secure and Somewhat-Grungy”
We had two rooms. The windows didn't lock, nor was there a bar to use to prevent the windows from being opened from the outside. This was a problem because one of the room's window faced an interior 'patio' (which nicely had an old shoe sitting in it) which was accessible to other rooms. So, there was no security. Nor was there a room safe to keep valuables in. Also, the hotel is located a block from the main bus station of Santiago. There are lots of people walking around outside. The walls were smudged. This hotel is definitely in the not-so-nice part of town. Yet, the staff was friendly and helpful.
On pulling up to the hotel the surrounding neighbourhood was reminiscent of a builders yard. The interior of the hotel was not much better. The decor appeared not to had been updated since the hotel was built and its cleanliness was a far cry to that you would expect from a lower rated hotel elsewhere. The rooms were sparse and although the bedding was clean and fresh the rest of the decor was like the rest of the hotel. The advertised wifi connection was non existant for most of my stay and of the five nights of my stay I was only able to connect to it twice and then only for a short period of time and at a speed so slow it was barely able to download my emails. The breakfast buffet was again in keeping with the rest of the hotel, sparse and disappointing. It contained very little choice other than bread rolls, cheese and ham, tea and juice. This was the same every morning. Also there was very little of it and on three mornings I came down and had obviously been preceeded by other parties as there were no bread rolls left and very little of anything else. Overall this was a very disappointing stay and although the hotel presented 3 stars on its front door I fail to see were any of them are warranted.

“Close to bus terminal”
Pros: located One block from the main bus terminal in Santiago. Convenient for transit or overnight stay before bus travel. Good hot water. Cons: Room was very dirty. walls were filthy. Noisy due to the busses. Breakfast was terrible and we were ignored until some locals came in and they started jumping hoops for them and replenishing the empty buffet.
