My room was tiny, the wardrobe door was broken and couldn't open, the bathroom wasn't big enough to get dressed in, the toilet broke and the breakfast was poor. However, the hotel is superbly located, next to the plaza de armas, there's free internet and it was clean. For a short trip where you only sleep in the hotel, it's...

Yes, they are doing some construction. But other than some noise (after 8am and quiet before bedtime), the place was really quite nice. The rooms are clean. The bathrooms are tiny (but this is throughout Chile). The pool was nice as the sun was shining and just to relax in the quiet was good. It's right around the corner from...

I am puzzled by the review from 2007 as there was no sign of any refurbishment. Indeed refurbishment is just what it needs. Overall service was OK and the rooms were quite large, but everything is a bit shabby and past it. Only stayed 1 night and found the restaurant cavernous and lacking in any atmosphere.

This hotel is currently undergoing major renovation work, which my travel agent, Aquamotion, failed to tell me. A new wing is being built at the front and extensive refurbishment is going on in the other wing. Cement mixers, jackhammers, the full works. I would estimate that there are at least another 9 months to go before it is habitable if...
