Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condominium is on the 16th floor of a new high-rise building with a lovely lobby & 24-hour desk attendant. It is located in a super area of downtown Santiago, at the intersection of Catedral and Teatinos streets. You are less than 2 blocks from a metro stop and within walking distance of most of the downtown monuments, Plaza de Armas, La Moneda, the Cathedral and museums, as well as the famous pedestrian-only shopping street, La Ahumada. It's also close to the Universidad de Chile. The closest Metro stop is SANTA ANA and the next closest is PLAZA DE ARMAS. (You can actually see the plaza from our balcony.) Our apartment is between the two. (A map of the extensive Santiago Metro system is found on Wikipedia and the Santa Ana and Plaza de Armas stops are on the Green Line in the center of the map.) We are only 2 stops (no transfers) from the Bellas Artes Museum and its wonderful collection. On our Metro line (Linea 5) you can travel directly to the Plaza Florida Mall (one of the biggest in the city) and to the Bodega/Winery of Santa Carolina (4th largest in Chile and one of the most historic).
Our apartment has a notebook full of maps, brochures, and ideas for making the most of your visit to Chile, including a road map of the entire country (these are for you to borrow while you are here). Our kitchen has some staples at all times, such as coffee, salt/pepper, tea, pasta and some other handy foods so you don't find an empty pantry before you find the stores.
From our 16th floor balcony you have a view of the city and from the laundry room on the penthouse level, you can see the snow capped mountains. (Remember, the seasons are switched, so you can ski in our North American summer, which is South American winter.)
Everything in the apartment is in good condition, including the dishes, kitchenware, linens, towels, and furniture. There is a large leather sofa in the living room and contemporary leather side chairs, and the dining area seats six. Each bedroom has its own bath. The master bedroom has a door to the balcony. We have a little home office area with a workspace for computer but WiFi connection in the apartment [optional] is ONLY available upon advance request and costs $100 in addition to the rent, for the temporary hookup fee. (WiFi is also available free in the building lobby and there are cheap internet cafes all over the city.)
The traditional Chilean-style kitchen has a sit-down bar area and outdoor balcony (called a loggia) with a washtub, and storage space - its window opens to the exterior for fresh air. There are community laundry facilities on the penthouse level (tokens required, available from the front desk).
Middle aged couple with Chile-native husband visits family in Chile annually. This is our cared-for getaway and we welcome mature guests who will treat our property with respect.
Great downtown location, close to the Cathedral, La Moneda, the Bellas Artes museum and the pedestrian zone. Here, you won't need a car because you can walk to the Metro and see what people come to Santiago to see!
My friend and I stayed a week at this lovely apartment on the sixteenth floor, and each evening, we had cocktails on the balcony because it was just the right temperature and the right noise level. We enjoyed having two bedrooms and two full bathrooms so that we each had privacy. We had everything we needed, even a hair dryer, which saved space in our suitcases! The Internet was perfect and allowed us to stay in contact with people at home, and having Netflix was something we didn't expect. We were so busy though that we only watched it once.
We felt very safe because a concierge was always on duty and buzzed us in. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help. We liked being able to walk a block to a grocery store, and a half a block to a bakery. There is even a Starbucks about three blocks away that we didn't use, but was available. We often walked to dinner and then took a taxi back to the apartment because the taxi fares are very reasonable, and the restaurants will call the taxi for you, which makes it easier.
I would recommend this apartment because it is clean, the location is convenient, the price is very reasonable and the owner is very responsive. He even kept in contact while we were there by email to see if we needed anything, or had questions. Enjoy your time in Santiago...it is a beautiful city and well worth a visit.
My husband & I spent the month of February in this apartment . It's a perfect location for exploring Santiago on foot or by metro. We jogged a mile each morning to Parque Forestal, running past the historic Ex Congreso Nacional, Plaza de Armas, and the cathedral--toward Cerro Santa Lucia and the charming Barrio Paris-Londres. When we chose to explore the glitzy north-eastern neighborhoods of Barrio El Golf and Barrio Vitacura the metro was a quick 10 minute walk. The apartment is well served with grocery stores, pharmacy, cafes, and restaurants. The 16th floor allows for cool breezes even in the height of summer. And the balcony offers spectacular views of both the city and the Andes. We would definitely rent this apartment again. The landlord was especially accommodating and went out of his way to make us feel welcome, providing all the comforts of home.
My husband and I stayed in this apartment for the month of January. It is centrally located in downtown Santiago only a short walk to a metro station and the shopping area. Being located on the 16th floor allowed for cool breezes in the heat of the day. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The access to the laundry facilities in the building made it very convenient to do our wash. The owners family lives in the building and is available if we needed anything. I would recommend this rental to any travelers.
The apartment was perfect for exploring Santiago. It was close to everything, Plaza des Aramas, Central Market, Metro, restaurants and shopping. The apartment was well maintained clean, compact and very comfortable. The owners were very helpful in answering all of our questions and making helpful suggestions. I would highly recommend this property.
Apartment is in a great location in downtown Santiago, three blocks from the City Center. My niece and I spent two weeks taking Spanish lessons in Barrio Brazil, and could walk to class each day. It was also close to a metro stop which made for easy and convenient travel thoughout the city. Apartment was very modern, comfortable and secure. WiFi was a plus. We would highly recommend it for your stay in Santiago.
This was our second trip to Santiago and these accommodations were perfect for us. Just three blocks from the Plaza de Armas with its main post office, metropolitan cathedral and lots of shopping. The metro is less than two blocks away and a Santa Isabel grocery is three blocks. The apartment was as advertised; clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. The view from the balcony was nice but the view from the laundry room on the top floor was excellent. For our next trip to Santiago this will be top on our list.
