    Ask the experts

    Is there a good boutique hotel in Santiago for less than £100?

    Asked by Louise

    The Le Rêve hotel is a gorgeous boutique hotel located in the trendy/bohemian district of Providencia. In my opinion Providencia is the best area to stay in Santiago as you’re close by to lots of restaurants and bars and the area has a really relaxed and chilled vibe to it. In fact Le Rêve is the only upmarket boutique hotel in Providencia – rooms start from around £100 per person which includes breakfast and it really is worth every penny.

    Another area opening up with a few new intimate hotels is the arty residential quarter Lasatarria, close to the centre (try toe Lastarria Boutique Hotel).
