Carasur Charming Hotel: Being #1 rated on trip advisory, Carasur Charming well deserves its reputation.
Chilean National Library: I love libraries. Finding this hidden gym was totally pure of luck.
Barrio Bellavista: Charming neighborhood with coffee shops and boutique stores.
Little Italia: Last minute found, recommend by our host Eduard. You will find cool furniture making shops in this place.
Esta CoCo: Delicious seafood restaurent with the coolest decor.
Maple Valley: Scenery drive, well worth checking it out.
Santiago in general is a quite safe city, with a very developed metro system, which makes it very easy to go around places. One thing to watch out is when you get out the airport, make sure to avoid taking private taxis. They ask for more than what a legal taxi and an uber will charge you.
Where we stayed
Carasur Charming Hotel
Being #1 rated on trip advisory,Carasur Charming Hotel well servers its reputation. Super host, Eduardo and his wife Catalina restored this historical house in the little Italy neighborhood of Santiago two years ago and opened up this boutique hotel. Total of 5 rooms, including one loft, give this place a charming and warm feel. The hotel has a beautiful patio surrounded with many plants.
We LOVED the expansive breakfast. It is by far the best breakfast we had during our South America trip. Every morning we are served with fruit, fresh juice, yogurt with granola, French crepe with camomile spread (Fundo Playa Venado, made in Chile), delicious eggs ( omelet or scrambled), and coffee.
The room is spacious and clean, with a very smart design. It is these small detail that makes this place special. We will find your name on the welcome blackboard in the lobby and welcome sign before entering our room. We were greeted “welcome back” the second time we stayed.
When on vacation, most people don’t stay at the same hotel twice. Our second time stay with Carasur Charming Hotel is just as charming as the first time. Eduardo and Catalina, it was great to meet you both and we love your place!
