Great stay!
Great location, wonderful service, lovely breakfast, free offsite parking (about a 5 minute walk)! Standard rooms are a bit small, but we spent most of our time exploring the area.

Fabulous hotel
What an amazing hotel right on the lookout of Lama Monchile. The classic rooms with balcony were a great size although the shower was triangular so on the smaller side but perfectly fine for us. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The day we arrived we were disappointed we didn't have a view and asked if we could lay for an upgrade. As we were staying 5 nights they didn't have the avail6fir the whole 5 nights but they did for that first night and they offered us 2 different rooms for the night complimentary and we choose the corner panoramic suite and the views were amazing. Our classic balcony room was on the street side with slight water views and were really quiet, so don't let that put you off. The rooms and hotel were spotless, well decorated and very modern and new. I'd stay here again. Breakfast was always fresh with a great assortment and the staff always accommodating to needs. Thank you for a memorable 5 nights

2/10 Poor

Rooms are very small bathrooms are extremely small
Rooms are very small bathrooms are extremely small and antiquated, beds are very uncomfortable place seems very old and rundown. Had to park my car a half a kilometer away and walk back in the rain not what I expected.

8/10 Very Good

Disappointed we didn’t get an upgrade although upgraded rooms were available. The sheets and blankets in the room we got “panoramic” were really bad- worse than a motel 6. Breakfast could be improved too. Good location and nice views if you get a view room. But small and needs upgrading.

The views are simply amazing from this hotel. Breakfast was great, it was very easy to walk to restaurants and shops. The bar and restaurant were closed but looked lovely. The staff were all friendly and helpful.
