Right in the heart of the city, near the University Catholica and its metro station, these apartments are neat and clean and excellent for both short and long stay. Very well maintained, well furnished and tastefully laid out, these are very secure and very friendly. You can come down the lifts to the most exiting cafes of the city, which...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mela Blu Apartments. If we return to Santiago, Chile, we would definitely stay with them. They are GREAT, close to most of the attractions, economical (very important for most people), at a stone's throw from the Metro (Subway) Station Universidad De Catolica, surrounded by several restaurants, next to a corner store and within 10...

The location of the Mela Blu appartments is very convenient, downtown Santiago, and several restaurants are in the same court or just around the corner. This also means though that it's quite noisy, even during weekdays, sometimes it was hard to sleep. The appartment itself gave us a wonderful home for our stay in Santiago. The bed is very comfortable,...

After leaving to ship, we got a free night at the ritz Carlton hotel, which was lovely. Next day we transferred to Melo Blu hotel. A little hard to find as it is an apartment in a court yard of 5 or 6 terrific restaurants. Once we found it, we're greeted bu Wally at the desk of the building telling...

These apartments are cheap, but very tacky. A pity, because the location is superb. Everything, from broken toilet seat to disintegrating curtains. The kitchen is very basic, with cutlery, crockery and a couple fo saucepans. It is certainly not fully equipped (went out and bought electric beater and mixing bowls). The other big issue is noise. As the apartments are...

First I would like to say we really couldn't have found a better place for a long weekend. Relatively low price and smack in the middle of restaurants and bars. Mela Blu is situated in a tiny backyard off Lastarria with many restaurants on the ground level. Some noise from the restaurants will be heard in the evening so if...

This place is great value and in a good spot as long as you don't mind the sound of the people from the restaurants below enjoying themselves (we didn't! No thumping music, just chitchat and occasional raucous laughter). The apartment we stayed in was decoratively a little tired and the fabric headboards could do with replacing but this didn't spoil...

This apartment hotel is very good overall. The apartment is clean, modern and has everything you need, including a full kitchen. I would recommend it for longer stays in Santiago. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom is small but modern. There are lots of places to store your things. The hotel is located in a very nice neighbourhood in...

I stayed at Mela Blu for nine nights in April, 2011. One thing that is important for travelers to know is that this is not a hotel. It's an apartment building in which some of the rooms are rented to travelers. Thus, the hours when you will able to get a hold of someone are limited, and emails may go...

Very cool place in a very well located region of Santiago Centro. I've got the studio apartment and it was very good for a independent solo traveler. Had a kitchen with a full set of appliances, a nice dinning table (for 2 persons, its ok) and a very good 32 inch lcd tv with basic cable channels. The metro station...

“Sorry, we are not really qualified to recommend one apartment over another in this complex. However, one of our relatives stayed in Apartment #715 and felt that our apartment, #724, was better than #715. They saw our apartment several times but, unfortunately, we did not see theirs. Ours was a corner apartment on the 7th and last floor. We feel that the corner apartments are better than those in the middle of a row.”

“Definitely get a back side room. Call uncorked tours for a full day wine tour. Been to Napa and Sonoma and not of these compare. Wine tastes were like a full pour, the restaurant had 5 glasses on the table and they kept pouring....then another pour of reserve wine to walk through the vineyard. We thought $195 per person was high but believe me it ended up being the best buy possible. Very special and personal. Go for it you won't be sorry.”
