We spent total of three nights in Santiago, including two nights traveling from Lima and the final layover going back to NYC. Both times we stayed with CasaSur Charming Hotel, which is one of the highlights in Santiago.
Being #1 rated on trip advisory, CasaSur 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 every morning. 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 the small detail that makes this place special. We find our names on the welcome blackboard in the lobby and welcome sign before entering our room. We were greeted “welcome back” the second time we stayed. This makes us feel like home.
When on vacation, most people don’t stay at the same hotel twice. Our second time stay with CasaSur 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!
