The location is in a very quiet part of Recoleta, albeit somewhat of a far walk from areas of interests to many tourists. The project itself actually consists of a couple of what appear to be recently remodeled 5 story buildings. My late night check-in just before midnight was uneventful as the night clerk found my reservation without difficulty and escorted me to a unit on the 4th floor. The very limited staff does not speak English but are quite friendly and professional. The security measures were modern and impressive utilizing a fingerprint scanner and key card through metal double gated entry doors to gain access to the building. The apartment itself was quite large, with a full sized well equipped kitchen, a queen size bed and a twin bed which doubled as a couch, a small work desk with an uncomfortable chair, a small plastic dining table with 4 basic chairs, an in room safe and adequate closet space (but no drawers). The split duct air-conditioning unit kept the room very cool, and the free Wi-Fi performed very good with no problems. The small bathroom had a full size shower (no bath tub) with lots of hot water and good pressure. A few issues which might not make this a good choice for families is that neither maid nor towel service is included, although these services are available for an additional fee of about US$15/day. As towel exchange costs US$2-$3 per towel, the maid service might be a better choice if you are staying than just a few days. Noise is also potential concern as the hard wood/laminate floors loudly transmit the sound from moving chairs and furniture to the below unit. A large supermarket is less than a block away and a small neighborhood park with a running path and outdoor exercise equipment is also just steps from the building. Plenty of eating places are within walking distance and a local pizza delivery restaurant is across the street. At less than US$50/night, these accommodations are recommended with the above caveats, keeping in mind this is a residential apartment building with vacation rentals and not a hotel.
