Where to stay in Santiago Chile, Meridiano Sur Petit Hotel.

hotel meridiano santiago chileI stayed in the Meridiano Sur, Petit Hotel for two nights last week in Santiago. Located in Providencia, the heart of a cool section of the city with plenty of street life and restaurants. It is only two blocks from the Manuel Montt metro stop. The Meridiano has 7 rooms ranging from a single for $80 USD  to the spacious loft, $270 USD  that can sleep four or more. It has a Flat screen TV ( as do all rooms ) a living room and a small kitchen. It is a cozy boutique hotel, with a beautiful garden that feels like someones home. The rooms are comfortable and the whole place is spotless, there are two house computers, free wifi, and a free breakfast. All the people at the desk spoke some English and were extremely helpful. This is a place where you rub elbows with other travelers. When I came down one morning there was a couple sleeping on the lobby couches who had come in from Australia at 4;00 am. I met a father and Son from the mid west who had come to trace their family heritage in Valparaiso and a woman from Copenhagen who was working inspecting fruit and vegetables. This is the hotel I hope to find when I am on the road.
