We really enjoy boutique hotels with character vs chains and high rises. The Aubrey is the first exception.
The hotel has it's pluses - outdoor courtyard, friendly staff, comfortable beds,and is clean.
The BIG negatives are STEPS and NOISE.
Lots of steps no matter where your room is located.
Especially the loft (really an attic that you have to be careful not to bang head) offering a challenge of over 60 steps each way from lobby to/from room. During our 12 hour stay over 360 steps to climb up and down just to check in ,go shopping ,and to dinner!
Very disappointed that after our International flight arrived at hotel at 9:30 AM we couldn't check in until 3 PM even if were willing to pay extra. Didn't even have a refresh room available for short time to change like other boutique hotels like LaStarria Had to tour and roam streets until 3PM before could check in. We checked out 6-7Am each of the 3 separate stays for flights within Chile. Hard to believe that on the day of our arrival no one had checked out early!
Had 3 different rooms on 3 different evenings and could hear people talking, shouting, yelling until after 3PM. Worse was a Saturday night that sounded like a riot outside with drums beating, shouting voices and car alarms. If you are a deep sleeper and night life until wee hours of morning perhaps you can survive. Otherwise bring earplugs or better yet select quieter location or hotel.
The last night they had a big private party with band in courtyard until after 11AM. Our wake up call was @5:15.
Don't think about sleeping until after 3PM
Would never recommend hotel.
