Amazing old building that they have done up in a funky creative way. Nice outdoor pool area and other bar/social areas although when I was there in October it was pretty quiet. My room way fine near the main hall way but my parents room upstairs was by the street and extremely noisy. Other than that everything was great, and...

This place really lives up to its name. The staff are welcoming and accommodating. We spent several short stays here while we were sorting out replacement passports in Santiago. We were able to leave bags while we went on short trips around Chile. The rooms are beautiful with lovely furniture and they wouldn't be out of place in a boutique...

Reviewed 14 September 2014

Happy House is a giant converted townhouse, think massive high ceilings and classic features. The age also means it's a little run down, but they were doing lots of work painting etc. the rooms have a tendency to be a bit cold at night. Positives include a wicked breakfast with eggs, a good central location, and a pool/outdoor area.

Happy house was a good place to stay for a few nights. It had a great location (only a 8-10 minute walk from the city center) and the building itself was interesting with high ceilings. The people at the front desk also had good advice regarding things to do in the Santiago. Would recommend.
