Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)
Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condominium is on the 16th floor of a modern high-rise building with a spacious and secure, wifi-enabled lobby & 24-hour manned security desk. It is located in downtown Santiago, at the intersection of Catedral and Teatinos streets, 3 blocks from two different metro stops (Line 5, green line) and within walking distance of most downtown monuments, Plaza de Armas, La Moneda, the Municipal Cathedral and museums, as well as the famous pedestrian-only shopping street, La Ahumada. It's close to the Universidad de Chile. Nearby Metro stops are SANTA ANA and PLAZA DE ARMAS -- our apartment is between the two. (A map of the extensive Santiago Metro system is found on Wikipedia and In the guidebooks and maps in the apartment.) We are only 1-2 stops (no transfers) from the Bellas Artes Museum and its wonderful collection. On our Metro line (Linea 5) you can travel directly to the Plaza Florida Mall (one of the biggest in the city) and to the Bodega/Winery of Santa Carolina (4th largest in Chile and one of the most historic).
Our apartment has maps, brochures, and ideas for making the most of your visit to Chile, including a road map of the country (for you to borrow while you are here). Our kitchen has some staples, such as coffee, salt/pepper, tea, pasta and other non-perishable foods so you don't find an empty pantry before you find the stores. There are mini-markets right downstairs on the corner and two full grocery stores within 3 blocks. There is a nice spa with gym and pool at The Gran Palace Hotel, also about 3 blocks away ($10 per visit, about $115 per month, including towels, locker, sauna).
From our 16th floor balcony you have a view of the city and the snow capped Andes mountains.
Everything in the apartment is in good condition, including the dishes, kitchenware, linens, towels, and furniture. There is a full size sofa in the living room and two contemporary leather side chairs, and the dining area seats six. Each bedroom has its own bath and both have blackout curtains (new in 2018). The master bedroom has a sliding door to the balcony. There is a separate home office area with workspace for your computer, and a high-speed WiFi connection. (WiFi is also available free in the building lobby and there are cheap internet cafes all over the city.)
The traditional Chilean-style kitchen has a sit-down bar area and outdoor balcony (called a loggia) with a new (2017) electric LG washer/dryer, washtub, and storage space - its window opens to the exterior for fresh air. There are also community laundry facilities on the 25th floor penthouse level (tokens required, available in the laundry room).

Owner you can trust!!!
This review is more about the character and honour of Mr. Silva. As I was to book into my stay a family emergency had me cancel my visit to Santiago. Mr Silva vas a true gentleman and looked to accommodate me accordingly. I will have full trust in any property Mr. Silva offers in my future travels.
Thank you once again Hugo not to many people like you out there👍🏻
Centrally conveniently located
Apartment has everything you need and is centrally located. Host left a bottle of wine which was a gracious touch. Convenient to many local universities which was important to us, and just a few blocks to metro stations to get around the city.
Great apartment in an excellent location
Two couples stayed here for a week in July. The condo is exactly as advertised, with all the amenities that one could want. Located in easy walking distance to tourist destinations, museums, restaurants, markets and metro. Our host Hugo and his sister Theresa were wonderful.
Great place in central Santiago
Great apartment, centrally located. Very responsive owner. Safe building, beautiful view. Easy access to Metro Santa Anna and Plaza de Armas. Interenet works well. Really a fantastic place at a great price. Highly recommend.
Balcony Breezes Over Santiago
My friend and I stayed a week at this lovely apartment on the sixteenth floor, and each evening, we had cocktails on the balcony because it was just the right temperature and the right noise level. We enjoyed having two bedrooms and two full bathrooms so that we each had privacy. We had everything we needed, even a hair dryer, which saved space in our suitcases! The Internet was perfect and allowed us to stay in contact with people at home, and having Netflix was something we didn't expect. We were so busy though that we only watched it once.
We felt very safe because a concierge was always on duty and buzzed us in. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help. We liked being able to walk a block to a grocery store, and a half a block to a bakery. There is even a Starbucks about three blocks away that we didn't use, but was available. We often walked to dinner and then took a taxi back to the apartment because the taxi fares are very reasonable, and the restaurants will call the taxi for you, which makes it easier.
I would recommend this apartment because it is clean, the location is convenient, the price is very reasonable and the owner is very responsive. He even kept in contact while we were there by email to see if we needed anything, or had questions. Enjoy your time in Santiago...it is a beautiful city and well worth a visit.
Highly Recommend-Central Location of Home
My husband & I spent the month of February in this apartment . It's a perfect location for exploring Santiago on foot or by metro. We jogged a mile each morning to Parque Forestal, running past the historic Ex Congreso Nacional, Plaza de Armas, and the cathedral--toward Cerro Santa Lucia and the charming Barrio Paris-Londres. When we chose to explore the glitzy north-eastern neighborhoods of Barrio El Golf and Barrio Vitacura the metro was a quick 10 minute walk. The apartment is well served with grocery stores, pharmacy, cafes, and restaurants. The 16th floor allows for cool breezes even in the height of summer. And the balcony offers spectacular views of both the city and the Andes. We would definitely rent this apartment again. The landlord was especially accommodating and went out of his way to make us feel welcome, providing all the comforts of home.
Santiago is the perfect starting point for visits to Chile's famous wine country, skiing in Portillo and visits to the Lake District in the south.
