Hotel Santa Lucia
Sitting at the heart of Santiago Centro, three blocks away from both metro stations Santa Lucia and Plaza de Armas, surrounded by shops, restaurants, coffee bar and pharmacies Hotel Santa Lucia is the kind of accommodation for the easy-going travellers who are not too fussy. This is a simplistic hotel in Santiago Downtown offering inexpensive rates, attentive, bilingual customer service and safety.
Located on the top floors of an office building, the hotel´s feel and décor take guests back to a time which is still the present in many parts of Santiago, but a period long gone for the upper class areas of Chile´s capital. The overall interior is antiquated, but well looked after. The bedrooms are spacious and clean. In fact, cleanliness is definitely a frequent positive description of Hotel Santa Lucia always brought up by its satisfied guests. There are 4 different kinds of bedroom all of which come with cable TV and a mini bar. Free WiFi signal is available at the hotel´s common areas.
At the hotel´s restaurant, a small variety of items provide a decent breakfast, and for lunch and dinner the menu display dishes prepared following the typical aspects and ingredients of Chilean cuisine. At the bar, guests can enjoy an early evening drink or a nice glass of national red wine.
Did you Know? The metro station Santa Lucia is part of the Linea 1 (the red line), the metro gridline hosting the stations which take travellers to the most popular tourist destinations in Santiago. Metro station Bellas Artes, although not on the red line, is only a few blocks away from the hotel; this is also an area worth visiting for its variety of restaurants, the beautiful city park (Parque Forestal) and infinite souvenir shops.
