Hotel Aubrey Chile

We just posted a review of the new Aubrey Hotel in Santiago, Chile, in the prime neighborhood of Bellavista. This hotel has gotten a lot of press in magazines, but since it just opened in late March, most of those reviews gushing with praise were put on paper before anyone had actually stepped inside.

Our correspondent, Chile resident Jimmy Langman, stepped way inside the first week of opening and spent the night. Here’s what he has to say about this 15-room upscale boutique hotel near lots of dining and drinking options:

For decades, this historic 1927 mansion was the digs for the Domingo Duran Morales family, a Chilean politician and businessman. Largely vacant since 2001, Will Martin of Great Britain and Mark Cigana of Australia saw the vast potential of the home as a hotel and bought it up in 2007. After 3 million dollars of renovations done over about two years time, they have created a classy boutique hotel unique to Santiago.

Each of the rooms is different, some modern, some more traditional. The best suite has “a colossal-sized room with a large bed, wide LCD television on the wall, a big bathtub for those who enjoy a relaxing soak, and terrace looking out at the pool.” If you you want a small and intimate hotel with personality in a prime area for strolling, check into the Aubrey.
