Boutique Casa Sur Charming Hotel is located in the Barrio Italia neighbourhood of Santiago in Chile. It’s a small and friendly hotel with a home-from-home feel, and the surrounding streets are chock full of quirky antique shops, art galleries and trendy bars. It’s a three-minute walk to the Santa Isabel subway station, where you can easily hop on a train to see the rest of this cosmopolitan city.
There are just six en-suite rooms at Casa Sur with serene and stylish décor of whites and pale greys and minimal furnishings that combine to create a quiet sanctuary. You get free wifi but no TV – the idea is that you make the most of your stay and explore the city, rather than stay glued to the set! The premium-quality bedding, free bottled water and blackout curtains certainly ensure you are comfortable and rested.
The friendly staff at Casa Sur are on hand to ensure you have everything you need during your stay. There’s tourist information to help you plan your trip, a laundry service and a lounge area with a small library of books on Chile. Essential sights in Santiago include the Mercado Central fish market (the place for a seafood lunch) and the Cerro San Cristobal Park – a huge green open space with stunning views. The hotel can also organise a variety of hosted tours and experiences including cookery classes, bike tours and wine tasting.
There is no restaurant at Casa Sur Charming Hotel, but there are countless great restaurants and cafes nearby, and the hotel staff are always happy to recommend their favourites.
