“A few steps away” would be an ideal expression to define our excellent location. Providencia, one of the best districts/communes within Great Santiago, recognized for its high life quality, safety and culture, facts which make our neighborhood the perfect and desired place to spend your stay in Santiago. We take the pleasure and particularity to be at a residential neighborhood, quiet and safe yet at the spot of everything; a few steps away from Providencia’s main cultural and comercial zones, where the frenzy urban flow mixes the calm of the residential life, redoing the handy concept. Our neighborhood is also quite cosmopolitan, adjective which confirms how charm it is, consolidating itself as a favourite place to stay for foreigns. Historically, this neighborhood was created under the “Garden City” concept, so it is not difficult to find several gardens and lawn throughout the urban line. Conceived as a placid zone next to Providencia’s center, which is nowadays the natural continuation of Downtown Santiago for its great importance. The temporal heterogeneity of the architectonic styles are a brilliant appeal, carrying a special identity just like our hotel does.
Just around the corner we find interesting urban details, as the tree-lined streets and aves or the beautiful old casonas, together with the most diverse shops and services as the best restaurants of also famous chains, shoppings malls, trendy and modern cafés, supermarkets, craft shops and so much more. Within two minutes walking we have access to the main avenues and our nearest Metro station, quick transportation to all destinations. The walking distances through the urban ways allow you to be in just few minutes at museums, libraries, touristic information centers and of course, at the most important financial centers of the capital such as El Golf and Las Condes. Therefore, walking is undoubted the best option to get to Santiago’s historic and civic center, Bellavista neighborhood which is, along with Manuel Montt and Suecia, these last two located very close to the hotel, represent the most funny and diverse nightlife in Santiago, with amusing and bohemian atmosphere.
The hotel staff is always willing to advise you with tips and ideas of how to move throughout Santiago!
