We can recommend this house with all the people who live & help there. The view from the balcony, the breakfast, the room and the very very helpful hosts are fantastic. It ist very close to the center (you can walk). You can go to shops and restaurants by foot.

Good location, very reasonable price, big room, breakfasts were very good (on a lovely roof terrace) and the staff were very helpful and the owners spoke English. The TV in our room didn't have good signal but the one in the lounge did. Would definitely recommend this casa to others.

- Big room with good air conditioning and a small terrace - Nice location, closeby to the most important must-sees - Good breakfast on rooftop terrace with a nice view - You can ask for a map of the city but you can also find a beautiful self-made map painted on the wall in the entrance.

Accommodation,hospitality,security,location,dining A plus. You can easily explore much of Santiago on foot from this location. Raul,Kathy and all staff were gracious and helpful. The street is thriving with music and shops. The main square is five minutes away. The roof terrace is a lovely place for dining and the dining is superb. Would stay here again.

The location was the most important factor for us- easy walk to Casa de la Trova. But it had everything else- all as described below. Warm welcome, large en suite room with balcony, rooftop terrace - great breakfast and dinner. Raul very helpful sorting taxi for diving at Brisa Sierra mar ( have written separate review on that)
