Accommodation Info

Arpa Cat Skiing, Chile
Wagner Custome Skis
There is an abundance of Santiago hotels and other accommodations. The city has an enormous range of accommodation options that vary from upmarket luxury hotels to budget hostels. As a general rule, accommodation is reasonably inexpensive, especially when compared to some of the tariffs that are applied at the ski resorts near Santiago. 

Neighbourhoods of Santiago de Chile The first decision regarding accommodation will be to choose which Santiago neighborhood to stay in. Each neighbourhood has lots of accommodations that vary in budget from extremely cheap to luxury (however overall, Santiago hotels represent great value).

Centro
This is the oldest part of Santiago. There’s plenty of buzz in this district and it has the most tourist attractions, most of which can be explored on foot.

We have stayed at the Hotel Plaza San Francisco. It’s located very close to tourist attractions such as Cerro Santa Lucia, the Opera House, the Government Palace, and the Museum of Fine Arts. Hotel Plaza San Francisco has lots of facilities including a pool, gymnasium and day spa. 

The hotel has a range of room configurations and all rooms are large and beautifully decked out. The bathrooms are somewhat dated but they are more than adequate. This hotel is a great choice for your first couple of nights in Chile, particularly if your Spanish language skills aren’t strong. There are various staff at reception and in the restaurant and bar that speak fluent English.

Providencia
Providencia is further east. The neighbor is rather swish; an upper-middle class area with minimal tourist activities but good restaurants and bars.

Hotel Orly is a rather grand establishment or if you want a truly Chilean experience where little or no English is spoken, try the Meridiano Sur Petit Hotel. In the charming backstreets of Providencia at Santa Beatriz 256, this little boutique hotel offers a delightful experience. It’s only got one car park and the rooms are small, but the hotel has the friendly warmth that you’d expect of a bed and breakfast. As for the breakfasts, these are a fabulous introduction to typical Chilean cuisine and the characteristic fruit juices are superb.

Las Condes
Las Condes is further east again and also an upscale neighbourhood. Av Las Condes feeds into the road that winds up to the Tres Valles ski fields. From Las Condes it’s only 27km up to Farellones so Las Condes is a great place to stay if you’re using Santiago as a base to ski at El Colorado, Valle Nevado or La Parva. This district houses many ski shops that provide transportation up to the ski resorts.

Here are a couple of superb hotels if you want to splash out a little....

Barrio Lastarria
 and Barrio Bella Artes are east of Centro. These neighbourhoods are sort of dinky and fashionable all at the same time with lots of arty bars and funky shops. 

Lastarria Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel located in the vibrant and bohemian neighbourhood of Lastarria, with its cobblestone streets and abundant restaurants. This luxurious Santiago hotel is an old mansion that has been lovingly restored, with grand features such as a marble staircase and antique fireplaces. The 14 rooms vary in size with the piece de resistance being the stunning suites that have high ceiling and grandiose period furnishings tastefully mixed in with funky décor and artwork. The Powderhounds have stayed at this hotel and can highly recommend it.

Barrio Bellavista is north of the Centro and is delightfully sleepy during the day, particularly in its residential streets. It’s most renowned for its amazing nightlife with great options for the 3Ds - dining, drinking and dancing. From Barrio Bellavista it’s very easy to access Cerro San Cristobal, the best spot to appreciate views of the city. This is of course dependent on the smog levels – perhaps go there after it has rained!

Barrio Brasil is west of the Centro. This neighbourhood is somewhat dubious after dark, yet it is incredibly popular with foreigners, which adds to the eclectic charm. Barrio Brasil has lots of à la mode hostels.
