Rooms are divided into five categories from Traditional to Deluxe and are immaculately decked out in a blend of classic and contemporary styles, pairing muted tones with dark-wood furnishings and beams. If you can, book a room with a balcony for private views out to the storied streets and faded mansions of UNESCO-listed Cerre Alegre. It’s the perfect spot for a lazy afternoon, perhaps enjoyed with a glass or two of Chilean red to help wash it all down.
And, the view’s shared by the outdoor pool, itself framed by selection of sun loungers and the hotel’s garden verdure. There’s even a small spa on site, for relaxing treatments and massages after days spent riding the city’s famous funiculars. Then, at the superb Montealegre Restaurant, you’ll have the chance to sample contemporary Chilean cuisine, with an emphasis on freshly caught seafood, served alongside an extensive wine list. What’s more, there’s a choice of venues, either in the dining room or out on the terrace for more of those magical city views.
