A budget hotel close to the old city
A budget hotel placed as close as you can get to the historic city centre: it’s within 50metres. The airport bus stops right by the front door. The external appearance is rather rundown but this is not reflected by the standards of decoration and maintenance internally. The building has been relatively recently and pleasantly refurbished in a modern style and the furnishings and fittings are equally new. The front desk staff was most helpful and efficient. If you have mobility issues, make these known beforehand as the lift does not serve the top floor. The breakfast bar was sufficient: staff had a challenge keeping it stocked when we were there due to a large party that was breakfasting at the same time. The hotel has a single escape staircase. There is a reasonably priced underground car park across the road under the small square that fronts the hotel.

convenient hotel for the bus to airport
Good stay - rooms are all different shapes and sizes so its nice to check a few out before deciding which one to have. Well located for the town/cathedral.

Ok for one night.
The hotel is conveniently located for the old town and the bus to/from the airport stops just outside the door. I only stayed one night but was disappointed with the size of the room which was very "cozy". There was no air conditioning on one of the hottest day of the year, the TV did not work - did not bother to report it as was in the room just for sleeping, and could not get the wifi signal in the room. The room was dark as the windows gave out onto an internal yard. The room was not expensive, so I guess you get what you pay for! The room, bedding and bathroom were clean. Breakfast was provided but I did not have it as the serving hours were from 8am and I had to catch the bus back to the airport quite early. If staying in Santiago for more than one night would choose a different hotel or get a different room.

Standard hotel in a central location. Airport bus stop right outside the door. Old town across the road and ten minutes walk to the cathedral.
