Bellavista, Santiago, Chile

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Not all rooms have bathtubs
  • Zoo nearby can create early-morning noise
  • The bathroom layout in some rooms lack privacy

Bottom Line

The Aubrey is a designer boutique hotel in a 1927 Spanish mission-style house that was renovated in 2010. This stylish property offers both free breakfast and tea in its dining room, and serves cocktails in its quirky piano lounge, which combines worn leather and wood with neon-pink upholstery. The funky, modern decor mixes with the old-world architecture and original beams to create a uniquely cool vibe. Adding to the charm, each of the 15 rooms is different -- with some boasting private outdoor space and private entrances. All rooms feature colorful modern decor with updated amenities such as large wall-mounted flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, as well as huge sexy glass-enclosed walk-in showers (the shower is fully exposed in the San Cristobal Studio, though, so guests who prefer privacy should avoid that room). The outdoor pool is small, but suitable for this 15-room property -- plus, it has plenty of lounge seating to enjoy some Santiago sun.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

At the base of Cerro San Cristobal Hill in eclectic Bellavista neighborhood

Settled in Bellavista neighborhood, The Aubrey is just a short walk to downtown Santiago and all its attractions. But the immediate area should not be overlooked -- the neighborhood has plenty of restaurants and bars, and the hotel is actually inside Parque Metropolitano and therefore just minutes from the funicular and great views of the city.

Santiago has long been known as a stopover city used only for connections to other more exciting sites in South America, but in the last 15 years it is gaining ground as a sophisticated metropolis. A purely economic and political center for Chile has given way to increasingly respected dining, great shopping, and lots of bike paths. With a decent underground system, a competitive nightlife, and proximity to the Andes for skiing, Santiago has a lot to offer.

  • 24-minute drive to Arturo Merino Benitez Airport
  • 2-minute walk to Parque Metropolitano
  • 2-minute walk to La Chascona, one of the homes of famous poet Pablo Neruda
  • 2-minute walk to Le Moneda Palace -- Presidential Palace
  • 10-minute walk to Santiago Centro or downtown
  • 12-minute walk to Metropolitan cathedral
  • 15-minute walk to Parque Forestal, a Mapacho riverside park that contains the Museum of Fine Art and the Modern Art Museum
  • 6-minute drive to Piojera, famous watering hole for poets and officials alike
  • 9-minute drive to Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda, a cultural center with art exhibitions and local crafts
  • 17-minute drive to the famous Club de Jazz
  • 24-minute drive to the Museum of Memory and Human Rights
  • 33-minute drive to Teatro Municipal, a historical theater
