The central location in trendy Barrio Lastarria means guests are never far from the action, and just a stone's throw from many of the city’s cultural attractions.
Having opened in early 2012, Lastarria boutique hotel is the latest hotspot to hit the Santiago scene.
The 14 bedrooms are divided between four categories and many have private terraces. All rooms are fairly modern in style, yet certain aspects of the hotel hark back to a bygone era such as the marble staircase and original oak flooring that have been beautifully restored. All are equipped with the latest technologies, such as Wi-Fi and digital safes, and two of the suites also interconnect - making them ideal for families.
Facilities include an outdoor swimming pool in the garden, a gym and a spa. There is also a bar serving light bites (be sure to bring your own wine - the restaurant is not yet in full working order and therefore they don't have a license).
Located in the heart of Santiago's most bohemian borough, the Lastarria is a boutique hotel surrounded by galleries, theatres, antique shops and the trendiest restaurants and bars. The hotel staff know all there is to know about the barrio and beyond, and can point guests in the right direction.
Why we love it
The hotel offers a ski shuttle up in to the mountains.
