You could not possibly ask for a better location. This hotel is in the center of everything. The price was reasonable for a short stay, but you would not want to stay here for more than a few nights at most. Although I loved the rustic and classic decor... the hotel is in need of DESPERATE renovation. The bed was...

I saw mixed reviews of this hotel on another site and put the negatives down to the hard to please. I was so wrong. The bed sheets didn't appear to have been washed recently, if ever, the shower had no hot water. The floor hadn't been cleaned recently as you could tell by the colour of the soles of your...

I don't know how this establishment can call itself a 3-star hotel. It probably qualifies for a 2-star hotel at best. I was fooled by the photographs. The building is actually quite cramped and decrepit. Upon arriving the receptionist tried to charge me USD$25 to check-in early despite telling me the room was vacant the night before so it didn't...

This hotel is conveniently located very close to Plaza des Armas and several other Santiago attractions. I found the building itself to be fairly dated and didn't find the hallway lighting to be that great. I didn't find the breakfast to be all that great (quality, not quantity) and service was slow even though I was the only patron at...

This was the last leg of our 3 city trip around South America. The previous two hotels seemed like the Ritz compared to Hotel Espana. Reception was run down, the decor was tired and VERY dated! It's very dark too, they liked turning the lights off in dull corridors so you couldn't see a thing at night with no idea...

I rely on TripAdvisor for almost all aspects of traveling. However, I saw a cheap nonrefundable price for Hotel Espana online, had a brain fart and booked it without checking TA first. After booking, I checked TA and my heart sank to the pit of my stomach. My god, I made a terrible mistake, there was a reason why the...

The location is OK, close to Plaza de Armas in the Central downtown area, but the hotel isnt great. If value = price/quality, then the value isnt really that great. The hotel is in bad shape, the staff isnt that friendly, and the price isnt that great. They need to either lower the price slightly or improve the quality of...

Excellent reception, central location, great price (expedia) very clean room, quiet inside room, great service. Who cares about noisy small elevators?! Efficient and practical, we would certainly book here again.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The hotel is located next to an extremely noisy bar/ club which plays loud music until 5am. The rooms are beyond basic with large cracks and missing doors. Our room was not cleaned during our 3 night stay. Although the hotel is located close to Plaza de Armas it is...

The place is very old and badly maintained. The lift does not work most of the time, the rooms, beds, bathrooms and TV are outdated, your room's window look at the window of your neighbours. the breakfast room downstairs looks depressing and one morning We saw a rat claiming the stairs to the upstairs pub ! We had landed there...
